I typically keep my tripod mount plate attached to the bottom of the camera so it's quick and easy to attach to and remove from the tripod. Since I'm a Black Rapid strap user, it's a perfect fit to be able to attach my strap to the loop under the plate that you use to tighten it. The problem I have is that my tripod plate is a little too deep (front-to-back) and interferes with the flip screen. I'm able to get the screen open if I remember to lift from the bottom first, but if I pull the top out first, then try to pull the bottom, it buts up against the plate and won't open. I wonder if either of the MeFoto tripod heads... A. Function the same way with the detachable plate with the loop on the bottom. B. Has a little more breathing room so you can move the flip screen freely. Anyone have a MeFoto and an OMD so they can test this for me? If so, let me know which MeFoto you have. I don't know if the RoadTrip and BackPacker have the same head or not. Thanks.
