SYMPLA Plates

Sympla Plates

At the heart of the SYMPLA system are the Plates, which fix the camera to SYMPLA rigs. Both versions allow front-back positioning; the Variable Plate also offers precise vertical and lateral adjustment, so lenses can be aligned with the Flexible Mattebox, or the camera viewfinder with your eye. Precision-cast in aluminium with durable steel components, SYMPLA Plates have no hard-to-access screws and require no tools for fitting or adjustment. Camera attachment is via Manfrotto's most popular quick release video plate (secured by a secondary safety lock) so swapping cameras, or moving a camera between SYMPLA and a Manfrotto video head is easy and fast. Using a sliding plate also means that additional front-back camera position adjustment is possible to take long lenses viewfinders, batteries and accessories into account.

Under the Plate are two 3/8” threads for attaching the entire rig, or individual components like the Flexible Mattebox, to a monopod, tripod or video head. Easy-Link fittings on the Plate sides also support Magic Arms, light modifiers, LED lighting units or external monitors.
