Arca Swiss vs Markins camera plates
« on: November 30, 2012, 01:22:45 AM »

Hello!

I'm looking to switch from my markins gear to an arca swiss cube in the near future. I was wondering if these plates have the same design or am I going to need to get all new plates for my fleet. If so does anyone have any recommendations for places to purchase plates?

Thanks!

Justin

Since Markins built their business by slavishly copying Arca-Swiss you should be just fine,.

Thanks for the comment Ellis!
I just tried my Markins plates out with the cube and you were correct. ;)
