The Fusion Plate – two camera accessories in one package

Fushion Plate

Do you own a camera? Do you use a sling-style shoulder strap to carry that camera instead of an old-fashioned neck strap? Are you tired of screwing on and off the attachment loop to mount your camera to a tripod? The Fusion Plate camera accessory Kickstarter project may just be your solution. It’s a dual-purpose camera mounting plate that allows the user to attach a shoulder strap to it as well as acting as a quick release attachment plate for tripods. The shoulder strap mounting point is a fold-down design that allows you to tuck it away when you want to mount your camera to a tripod. It’s made out of aerospace aluminum and 300 series stainless steel and attaches to your camera via the 1/4 inch accessory hole in the bottom of your camera. The Fusion Plate is currently seeking funding until May 18th. Pledges start at $1 and run to $68, with $60 getting you a black FPG-1001 Fusion Plate. If funded, the product is slated to start shipping in May 2013.

  2. Nice concept, but I would always worry that a part might fail while using a strap and your camera would go bouncing away. And they cost a lot to repair after they bounce.

  3. Marcus,
    That’s all well and good but the ring on that plate is attached to the screw that holds it on. Not especially good for peace of mind when it comes to it loosening during the day. Fusion plate has it right as long as that hook is strong
