You may have noticed that mounting your LC-A+ or LC-Wide on a tripod causes a big problem: the MX and HF/FF-S buttons are no longer accessible. The same happens when you attach Fritz the Blitz using the adapter kit. But don’t despair, read on for a quick fix!
Both the LC-A+ and the LC-Wide have functional buttons on the bottom plate. The LC-A+ has a MX button for multiple exposures, and the LC-Wide has an additional HF/FF-S switch to select picture format. The problem is that when you mount either camera on a tripod, these buttons get blocked.
In most situations losing either of these functional buttons is not an option, especially the MX lever. If you want to keep them accessible while mounting the camera on a tripod, all you have to do is use the appropriate adapter.
The same problem occurs when attaching Fritz the Blitz to the LC-A+ or LC-Wide. The bracket needed to attach Fritz covers the entire bottom plate of your camera, thus blocking all buttons.
Using the adapter nut lets you pair Fritz with your favorite camera, all the while leaving the bottom accessible.
There you go!
