    I have an Ursa Mini Pro G2 and got the BMD Ursa Mini shoulder kit with BMD original top handle. I want to add additional mounting holes so I am thinking of buying the SmallRig Top Cheese Mounting Plate (Model # 1853) - see link below.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M4L0HKS...0668520_dpLink

    It looks like it has 3 3/8 mounting holes in the middle that I can mount the BMD original top handle but I assume think they are going to be use to mount the top plate to the camera.

    Anyway, has anyone used the 1853 top plate and successful used it on any Ursa Mini/Ursa Mini Pro with the original BMD top handle? Please share photos if you did.

    EDIT: Correction: Has 1/4-20 and not 3/8 mounting holes.

    Doesn't the BMD top handle use 1/4 20 screws to mount?

    If that's the case then there shouldn't be an issue. It is amazon, you can always return it if it doesn't work.

    The issue I see with that top cheese plate, it might restrict air flow too much? EYu, I have a new Smallrig Ursa Mini side cheese plate (right side) available. It also has a built in NATO rail on it. PM me if interested.
    Cheers
