This is a ProMediaGear  Universal quick release DSLR and lens plate. It was specifically designed for the cameras that do not have custom mounting plates such as  (Olympus, Sony, Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Leica, Panasonic etc and even video gear.)

Buy two plates for FREE SHIPPING.

Our quick release plate offers exceptional fit and security.  By using only a slightly protruding hard rubber cord for anti-rotation, we ensure that the plate rests directly on the camera eliminating any play or "mushiness".

It features removable strap loops that can be also relocated to other side if desired.  The loop is mounted via stainless steel screw that also acts as a safety stop it also can be moved (if you prefer to load the camera from left side) or you can add second screw.  This would make your plate top mountable only but would prevent the camera from sliding out in either direction.


  • Three (3) 1/4-20 mounting holes for direct mounting to tripods, mono-pads, etc.
  • Safety stops (ensure the plate doesn't slip out when clamp is loosened accidentally)
  • Machined aircraft quality aluminum construction
  • Hard black anodized surface coating and wear resistant finish

Items Included:

  • Plate
  • Strap loop
  • Allen wrench
  • Captive screw for mounting the plate


The plate will fit virtually all SLR camera bodies and will mount to all ProMediaGear, Really Right Stuff, Arca-Swiss, Markins, Kirk, Jobu Design or any other standard Arca Swiss clamps.


  • .38  X 1.50 x 3.0 inches
  • Weight: 2 oz.

Rating Great value, impeccable quality, highly recommended
I bought one of these plates and just ordered 3 more. Ordering a new plate each time I buy a new body is a small chore since I buy 1-3 bodies a year. These universal plates are a great alternative while I wait for the specific body plate to be built. The disadvantage of these plates is that they may block the battery cover and don't have specific anti rotation pins for a specific body. The red rubber on the bottom works well though and how often do you have to change a battery? Bring your allen key with you on a shoot and you're good to go. The advantage of the universal plate is that they fit any body and work well. Machining is first rate.

ProMediaGear nailed the plates. This a solid, well machined universal plate that rivals RRS. Well Done!

Rating Top notch
Great customer service and solid plate. I will only be utilizing these going forward! No need for a specific camera mount as this is rock solid in my RRS monopod head and QR clamp.

I have found this universal plate to be just what I needed. Well built and made more secure (anti-twisting) with the red rubber inserts. Machining quality is top notch. I ordered two, in fact.

The plate is just as the company claims and to say the least, it's great. It does it's job and has a number of useful features. I've been searching around for a plate for my Oly E-5 but the dedicated one produced for the system from RRS is discontinued. Then I found ProMediaGear, got an L-plate, but they recently changed their design so the bottom plate is different from the picture and didn't fit my system perfectly. Contacted the company, they offered to do an exchanged for the older model but I decided to just buy the older model bottom plate and keep the new design for another camera. When the bottom plate came in, the package was missing the mounting screw; contacted them again, it was shipping right away. Communication was quick and service was top-notch. A big thank you for Tom and Beata who were more than helpful.

Rating Truly Universal Plate...
I have been replacing most of my Arca plates with the PMG Universals, both for camera use and as lens plates.

This is a really nice plate and it fits my RRS Lever Clamp perfectly. I like that the end loops are removable too. Machining and fit/finish are first rate but a bit 'glossy' compared to RRS's normal mostly matte finish. The company has been a pleasure to deal with and the wrenches they include are top of the line german Wiha brand, not some garbage that will strip out. If I had to make some suggestions, it'd be to put the PMG logo on the front & back for shameless self-promotion ;) and include spare pieces of the red rubber material. I honestly doubt I'd need them but it'd be a nice touch as it is rubber and has a finite lifetime under compression.
