We often get asked about the differences between the four types of capture clip offered by Peak Design. Here we will try and explain the differences.
There are two types of capture unit:
The Capture Standard. It doesn’t have a tripod mount on the base of the clip. It comes supplied with a square black tripod plate that is compatible with most ARCA type tripods. See here: https://www.jackthehat.co.uk/peak-design-capture-camera-clip-standard-plate-p-962.html
The Capture Pro. It is built to a professional standard and also has a tripod mount on the back of the clip. The Capture Pro works with all of the different plates (ARCA, DUAL, MICRO and PRO). When you buy the Capture Pro you can buy it pre-supplied with any of the following four plates:
The PROplate is the newest design. It combines the best of the ARCAplate and DUALplate features in that it works with most ARCA Swiss tripods and Manfrotto RC2 heads. The PROplate locks into Capture Pro in 2 different orientations. If the user doesn’t require the Manfrotto capability there are two sections of the plate that can be unscrewed and removed. That means that the PROplate will then lock into Capture Pro in 4 different orientations.
