    I bought the bh-30 and would like to get the L plate but can only find the regular one - will it work on the gripped OM-D. Thanks, Steve

    I doubt that their L-plate would fit with the HLD in place, and I think I remember reading a blurb on their site that they will not be making one for the OMD w/HLD

    The problem with making one for the HLD is that it can't be made not to slip. I have a Milich L plate which uses the tripod socket and the pin that the HLD uses to stop twist. Whatever the base of the HLD is made of, a standard RRS plate will twist on it when you go into portrait. I'm saying this from experience, not theory.
