I was on the hunt for a quick release plate for the Panasonic G85 so I could use it with my awesome tripod. I could use the generic one that has a cork backing, but I really like the anti-twist features of the custom plates.

A search turned up nothing. Then I started to look around the existing plates out on the market to see if I could find a suitable one. The issue with the G85 is that the tripod socket is very close to the front of the camera so there’s not a lot of space there.

I just want to happily report I found one: the Acratech 2198.

This fits like a glove! If you’re in the market, this one works a treat!
