Not For Sale
Quick Release plate to mount a regular camera on top of a Tiffen Smoothee.

For obvious reasons, the quick-release is not large, and the Smoothee is a light-weight design, large cameras are unlikely to work well on the smoothee, don't blame me. :-) However most modern consumer cameras about the size of a soda-can or slightly larger should work quite well.

Anti-skid-pad, I recommend making a "pad" from a piece of 3M thick double side tape, see the picture, I cut mine to fit inside the raised edge, and after applying it, I used my Xacto knife to cut out the hole for the screw, dirty the top part a little so it don't stick to everything, this fixed my camera in place nicely and prevented rotation.

Material is "Strong & Flexible" which have a bit of give, but at 3mm wall thickness is quite solid.

Included in this sale is only the plate, you wil need to find a 1/4 screw and some thick double side tape, from your local hardware store or a camera shop.

Read the disclaimer above. ONLY YOU can judge if the piece is appropriate to hold your camera. but personally, i would not consider a smoothee for a heavy DSLR camera / lens combo.

It is called a 1/4 20 screw, you could use a bolt there is room for the head in the plate. you would know this if you read the description. Politely speaking, if you do not already clearly understand what is required to attach this plate to your camera, then you should probably not be messing with modifying SteadiCam Smoothee's. Just saying...

@leedaehui material is Strong & Flexible - as far as Im aware the "Alumide" material is not particularly stronger, I thought about the stainless steel material, but that seems overkill. Shapeways only print the plate, no bolts is included.
