The Micron Standard™
The Micron Dovetail is the second part forming the basis of the new Micron Standard. Like the Micron Bridge Plate, the Micron Dovetail has also undergone a complete redesign focused not only on the lightweight nature of the new digital cinema cameras but also on mating with popular prosumer and professional lightweight fluid heads from companies like OConnor® and Manfrotto®.
The Micron Dovetail is designed to mate with the OConnor 1030D/DS heads with no modification. The dovetail is also designed to be used with Sachtler®/ Cartoni®/Miller/ETC quick-release plate systems and the Manfrotto cast dovetail quick-release systems (common to the 501/502/503 for example) by merely attaching the quick-release plate to the bottom of the dovetail.
The Micron Dovetail comes with a linear spacing of alternating 1/4-20" and 3/8-16" threaded holes and also comes with safety buttons on both sides of the dovetail that allow for front and rear load of the Micron Bridge Plate mounted camera.
