What QR plate are you using with the K1?

While we're waiting for Kirk or RRS to produce a proper plate or L bracket, I would like to know what generic plates people are using on their K1s.

None of the ones I have seem to be suitable, and I don't think the offerings from Kirk or RRS will be ready in time for an up coming trip.

Any suggestions?

I am using just a 120mm arca-swiss QR plate on the base of the battery grip, until a L-bracket is available.

The Peak Design ProPlate (PROplate Tripod Plate | Peak Design)- let's me use it with either ARCA or Manfrotto and attach my tripod, monopod as well as the Peak Design Slide and Clutch too. Used it on my K5 and my K-1 with no problems
