Most cameras are designed with its tripod mounting hole positioned perfectly center along the bottom/base of the camera body. However, there are a few cameras that have been designed with the mounting hole off-center, making it difficult to balance onto most gimbals. (See below)
Below you can see some samples provided by customer Ray Roscoe in using the extender plate along with his camera while balancing it onto the CAME-Optimus gimbal. (Click images to enlarge)
Notes from user Ray Roscoe:
1. Remove the center stop screw so the camera can slide just that bit further.
2. There are 2 small allen screw sin the plate, one needs to be removed tow enable the extension plate a little more movement.
The CAME-Accordion features an extending scissor arm that puts the camera right where you need it. The "accordion" motion allows the arm to extend 4.7 Meters (15 feet) out and then retract back in. The drive on the CAME-Accordion is powered by a V-Mount battery (Not included) and is controlled by a rocker switch. The max payload is 15Kg (33 lbs) and works well when paired with our Argo, Prodigy or Mini 3 gimbals. The CAME-Accordion kit weighs in at 35kg (77 lbs) and includes the crane, tripod, wheels and aluminum cases.

This dolly and track system can be configured in straight and/or curved runs. A key feature of the track is our magnetic locking system, completely tool less and allows for quick assembly and disassembly. Crafted out of aircraft grade aluminum the track tubing is durable and light weight. Preconfigured inner and outer arcs provide consistent and smooth transitions for the dolly assembly.
The folding spreader dolly incorporates 3 wheel assemblies that each have 4 smooth gliding wheels. Each wheel assembly pivots 360 degrees and the 4 wheel design provides maximum contact with the rail. Both the track and dolly compact into the included bags, providing easy transportation and handy storing.
