    I am trying to decide what to get. I usually buy RRS L brackets, but it seems like overkill for the little NEX. What do you use for a tripod plate?

    I love using one of the small, but powerful rare earth magnetic heads on my LX5 and now NEX7. The mount quickly, and believe it or not I have swung the cameras upside down to
    show other photographers how well this works on a smaller camera. Also works fantastic on a monopod.

    RRS has one in the works. There is a Arca Swiss one. JTEC is the one I use for my 5N.

    I was thinking I might try JTEC. I have never seen the ones that are magnetic. Interesting idea.
