Pole Pixie Foam-Padded Resting Plate

Easily Set Down Your Pole!

Avoid scratching your camera PLUS helps against rough landings.

Image description Now Available! This product is like our classic resting plate, but it has been improved with the adding of two layers of foam. It is very handy to set down your pole without taking off the camera. And you don't want to have to worry about your camera getting scratched up on concrete or getting wet in damp grass. Our foam-padded resting plate has two layers of non-absorbent foam! This helps against rough landings when bringing down a pole. Because the foam won't absorb water, you can just dry it off with a paper towel or cloth when you are done. These were designed by us to work with the Pole Pixie adapter. So, avoid scratches and damp ground, and have some dampening for rough landings. The resting plate works great for all pocket cameras.
Features:
~ Lightweight.
~ Two layers of waterproof foam.
~ Arrow so you know where your camera is pointed.

FAQ: Will this protect if I drop my pole by accident?
Answer: Our major goal was to provide for some protection of the sensitive electronics in the digital camera against a rough landing. It is not intended to protect against the pole being released and crashing to the ground. Our page on Crash Tests shows some of our testing results.
 
Question: How large of a camera will this protect?
Answer: The small version is made for pocket cameras that extend no more than 4 inches from the camera mounting hole. The large version, coming soon, is intended for DSLRs that extend no further than eight and a half inches from the mounting hole. Because cameras can vary dramatically by weight due to number of batteries, size of glass lenses, etc., we do not rate any of our equipment for camera weight.
 
Question: Do you guarantee that this will protect my camera?
Answer: We use the foam padded plate ourselves, and we have not broken a camera with it; however, we are careful and we always bring the pole to rest as lightly as possible. Because we do not know what equipment will be used with the plate or how it will be handled, we do not offer any guarantees about how much protection it will give your camera, and you use the product at your own risk.
