    Wonder if anyone out there has an Arca swiss tripod plate solution for an Olympus EM5 + HLD6 grip? (minus the vertical grip/battery pack section). I've previously been using a Really Right Stuff plate, but that will not fit on the camera when the grip is in place and hoping to avoid using a generic plate. I've considered altering my RRS plate, but it would require some grinding and drilling/tapping a new hole mounting hole.

    What's wrong with generic eBay plates?

    Because the EM5 has a smaller (narrower) bottom surface than many cameras, the generic plates stick out awkwardly. The RRS plate is contoured to the bottom of the camera, and while it sticks out a bit, it is a smooth transition.
