[ACQUIRED] k100d quick release plate ( markins pg-33 )

Hey guys, I'm looking for a quick release plate for the k100d, hoping someone had the markins plate, but has upgraded cameras. The Markins model is PG-33, and they're unfortunately out of stock. I'm looking to pay less than the 40 usd it would cost new.

I'm particularly interested in the Markins because it has the slots for a handstrap. If my search doesn't turn anything up I may resign myself to something else that fits the k100d well.

Thanks for checking my request,
Mark Coelho

I had the same problem last year. I settled on the Wimberly Universal Plate, it doesn't have the slot for the hand strap. If I'm not mistaken Markins also has a Universal Plate. One thing with the Wimberly, you have to take it off to change the battery.------Stoge

Thanks for the offer pxpaulx, I'm still holding out for a plate that physically can't twist.

If I give up, I'll most likely get the stroboframe quick release system, as they have a plate for the k100d.
