The PZ-182 Camera Plate for Canon EOS 1DX Mark III from Kirk is designed with anti-twist flanges to prevent the camera from moving while mounted to the plate. Once the plate, which has a dovetail mount, is attached to the camera, it gains a quick release functionality that is compatible with Arca-type clamps and heads. The 6061-T6 aluminum plate maintains complete access to the camera's sliding battery pack, and the plate is black anodized, which is resistant against scratches and scuffs. Optional safety stops, which prevent the camera from sliding out if a clamp is partially opened by accident, can be added to the bottom of the plate. Plus, an industry-standard Quick Disconnect socket is also found on the bottom for a shoulder or sling strap, and the rear of the plate has been scored with a sensor centering line for alignment of the camera on a tripod head.
