Does anyone make an Arca Swiss style plate for the tripod collar on the Hasselblad 300mm lens for the H1-H3? Neither Really Right Stuff nor Kirk appears to offer one.
Thanks.

You may want to contact Wimberley ([a href=\"http://www.tripodhead.com/]here[/url]) to see if one of their generic plates can be installed on your lens. Acratech also offers plates and custom machining services (here).

Good luck!

I have been using the RRS 97L B on my HC300 for some time mainly because I had  it lying around from a previous lens. It fits pretty well but has only one attachment screw. There is a ridge at the back of the plate to help prevent forward slip and rotation and it may be possible to use more than one fixing screw to the lens. I haven't felt the need to do this yet.

Thanks, Francois and Richard. The RRS B97L was apparently designed for the V Series 350mm lens, but  your experience, Richard, suggests it works fine. I did contact RRS and they had the same recommendation. They offered to ship me one to try.
