M-Plate: A Multi-Function Camera Tripod Plate System

I saw this originally on a tweet from @diyphotography.

I am so excited for this product to come out it is ridiculous!

The following is taken from their Kickstarter page. I highly encourge you to head on over there and check it out.

About this project
What is the M-Plate™?

The M-Plate is a camera tripod plate system with universal mounting compatibility, integrated Manfrotto RC2 / Arca-Swiss connections, and modular attachment points.

Features of the M-Plate:

World's first tripod plate to integrate both Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-Swiss mounts. Also compatible with other tripod plate systems.

Quick-attach to any tripod while using your favorite camera strap systems such as our own C-Loop. Also compatible with BlackRapid, SunSniper, Spider Holster and others.

Hand Grip Friendly. Adds hand grip function to cameras that lack the mounting point.

The built-in M-Link port will connect with future photo and video attachments, including flash brackets and video rigs that are currently in development.

How does it attach to the camera?

The M-Plate securely fastens to the base of the camera using a threaded hex head bolt, while a protective neoprene base layer prevents the M-Plate from moving once in position. A hex key will be included to attach your M-Plate.

When will I receive my M-Plate?

The Kickstarter project ends on our chief designer's birthday: December 8th, 2011. At that time we will gather shipping information from backers and process pre-orders as quickly as possible.

Why the funding?

The $15,000.00 funding goal is to help offset the time spent on research and development. The funding will also help produce the initial batch of M-Plates which will be made here in the USA.

Who designed the M-Plate?

The brainchild behind the design of the M-Plate is our chief industrial designer, Ben Wong, who has also designed the revolutionary C-Loop Strap Mount and ergonomic Split Strap Technology.

Patent Pending?

Patents have been filed.
