Nikon Z series

  • Since Nikon Z series cameras are not high enough, if you install ATOLL C on Z series, it may not be completely aligned with the center of the lens, (However, most Z series lenses can be installed)
  • There are two ways to align ATOLL C to the lens center of Nikon Z series cameras
  1. Add-ons a Heightening Plate
  2. you can try to disassemble the ATOLL, as shown in this video (there is grease inside, please pay attention) You can see difference between before / after disassemble the ATOLL. Screws now can goes deeper under the ring. After disassembled, ATOLL can align with the center of lenses, but it can't use with PD capture V3, but can work perfectly with Manta Mount.



    Another suggestion
    Installing ATOLL C on the Z series may cover the function keys.
    If you usually use the function keys
    we recommend that you choose an extended quick-release plate (or choose ATOLL D),
    which can make ATOLL farther away from the camera and increase finger space to access function key.

    NOTE 1
    If you choose ATOLL D, please be sure to add a Heightening Plate to align ATOLL with the center of the camera, because ATOLL D will be far away from the camera. If it is not aligned with the center of the lens, it will interfere with the lens, resulting in failure to install

    NOTE 2
    The body of ATOLL C and ATOLL D are the same. The difference is the length of the quick release plate.
    You can replace the quick release plate on the ATOLL C with an Extended quick release plate, it will become ATOLL D

     🌞🌞best recommended combination is🌞🌞
    ATOLL C+Heightening Plate+Extended Quick release plate
    This allows you to flexibly switch between ATOLL C and ATOLL D

    If you don't care so much about aligning the center of the lens,
    and accessing the function buttons, ATOLL C is the right choice



    Olympus EM1 and OM1

    Above the picture is
    EM1 with ATOLL C+Heightening Plate. 
    Some users feel that ATOLL is too large for EM1/OM1.
    The finger space between the ATOLL and the grip is too small to hold the camera. So we have removed EM1 and OM1 from the available compatibility list

    Below the picture is
    EM1 with ATOLL D+Heightening Plate.
    The quick release plate of ATOLL D is relatively long. The user can move the ATOLL outward, and the finger space becomes much larger
    But because this method may not be suitable for everyone
    So we didn't list EM1/OM1 on the compatible list. 
    If you think this is OK, you can go to the official website to choose ATOLL D+Heightening Plate
