More Information

Mini Mounting Plate

Ki Pro Quad has the exact same side dimensions as Ki Pro Mini, allowing both models to share accessories such as the Mini Mounting Plate. This option plate allows you to mount Ki Pro Quad to 3rd-party devices. The plate is attached via 4 supplied screws; plates can be attached to either or both sides of Ki Pro Quad. A large number of screw holes in the plate allows you to mate Ki Pro Quad to 3rd-Party battery plates, hot-shoe adapters and other mounting applications.

Desktop Stand

This stand securely holds the Ki Pro Quad upright on a desk, shelf, or any flat surface. A right angle power cable is provided for easy connection between the power supply and the Ki Pro Quad.

Rod Accessory Plate

This option, which is interchangeable with Ki Pro Mini, provides an accessory plate that can attach to a Mini Mounting Plate (sold separately) so you can attach Ki Pro Quad to user-supplied 15mm camera accessory rods. The accessory plate has knobs for adjusting the height of the rods relative to the Mini Mounting Plate, as well as a set of knobs for securing the rods in the bracket.

Monitor Hood (included)

For working in direct light situations, a monitor hood is included that screws onto the Ki Pro Quad chassis for a secure fit that helps block direct light onto the built-in confidence monitor.
