If using it vertically with cable out the left (bottom), then an extra Arca-Swiss piece is required (can't remember the name but available through ebay) to jack the camera up to make room for the plugs etc.

            I took the side L piece off my E-M1 version so it could be used on the base only for tripod use or making a place for the 'pinky' to sit & only fitted the side bracket when actually needed & maybe the same could be done with the Mk II. Obviously, for longer battery time the HLD-4 will be used instead.

                I can't find the ProMaster in the UK and I can't find a report of whether it fouls the battery door, ports or screen.

                I'm still v happy with my Novoflex 'universal', BTW.

                        It took a long time for a manufacturer in China to finally come up with one!
                        This is another ebay seller with that one (as appearing on ebay Australia).

                        On the other hand, it isn't as good as the ProMaster one.

                          If you attach the grip the battery can be changed no bother. I have it in the brightest colour which makes it stand out.
                          That's interesting. I've been put off the 3-legged thing plates because they seem to have a solid base, thus preventing access to the battery. How do you manage this?

                            I bought a cheap plate from Amazon: product number B07D3K24DR (since I can't post a url). However, it does not fit well at all and I am returning it. I think I may have to bite the bullet and buy the RRS version.

                            On other thing I've noticed about all of these plates; they don't have a tripod hole. It doesn't worry me too much but I suppose if you have one of these straps that attaches via the tripod bush then you might be stuck.

                            I really wish Meike would make one for this camera. I have their Fuji X-T2 plate and it is a perfect fit and very high quality.

                              I bought one of these recently. Well made and fits very well. Screen swivel a little compromised, but still very usable.

                                I bought a couple for my A7R but they work fine for the EM-1 too.

                                I use both cameras with a power battery grip.
