    The present.
    Thank you. Was wondering if anyone was going to get round to this. One of the main reasons I do not use Blackrapid and the ilk is that I almost always leave my plates on, and need to switch quickly and seamlessly from walkabout to tripod mode. Never trusted the non-purpose built plates where people attach to the tightening "key."

    That looks like a great design, very sturdy.

    Also in this camp is the new Luma Labs plate.

    I am on their mailing list so I got to pre-order it. I didn't go for the strap but I did get the plate. It's light as heck and fits on my E-M5 perfectly. I like the side mount points with my Peak Design Leash. It means I can rest it flat without removing anything.

  5. Feedback.

    Any user comments regarding this plate would be appreciated.
    Wondering if it would interferes with door to access the battery/sd. 2.5 x1.5 inches with a leftward bias should allow for accessing most bottom side battery compartments. But...

    Hello, My name is David Fliger the inventor of the Fusion Plate, I would be happy to answer any questions people may have about the plate. I personally am not a M43 user, but if you are wondering about fit, maybe take a photo of the bottom of your camera with a ruler next to it (pm me and or post it here) and I could comment on how I think it would fit your camera. Thank you for supporting our project!
