Includes a custom fit 1/4"-20 UNC bolt with handle.
(standard camera thread)
It is tappered to make inserting it into a proper thread-cutter easier.
You MAY try using a 1/4-20 nut instead but this hasn't been tested.
(I'm using the proper tools for the proper job.)

The 200pl_GH2.* files are a special version of the adapter plate that allows the battery door of the Panasonic GH1 and GH2 cameras to still open.

You can change the parameters to make a 3/8-16 UNC bolt instead.
You can also chane the depth of the nut on your camera. The default is 7mm (works on all of mine).
The plate is already exported for 1/2-20 UNC and 3/8-16 UNC.

You can find a spring loaded quick release adaptor for these here:

Materials and methods

You need a 1/4-20 thread cutter if you want to use the included custom bolt.
