After a bit of feedback from Nikon users on the NikonRumors forum I decided to see if I could do a design option with an ARCA Swiss compatible mounting plate. Whilst it compromises the ergonomics slightly I am excited to try this version out. Hopefully I can get it CNC machine next week. Need to finish of the plastic component detailed design so that I can get this version up and running.
I had to make use of some plastic self tapping micro-screws for the 1st time in my design career. They really are small compared to what I’m used to working with.
