Dear forum members,

Do any of you use the Wimberley Arca-compatible quick release camera mounting plate on a D200? This is a generic plate rather than one designed specifically for the D200. There are advantages to a custom form-fitting plate, but there is also an advantage to a plate that can be bought once and attached to almost any camera body.

What I wish to know, from those who use this combination, is the degree to which the plate fits well on the D200, e.g., with no overhang, etc. Also, I would hope for comments on how secure and resistant to twisting, etc., it is. Comparisons to the usual suspects, or other comments and recommendations, are welcome too.

Thank you.
