This is a neat solution to an irritating design flaw affecting a range of Panasonic FZ- bridge cameras (models FZ-1000 II, FZ-1000, FZ-300, FZ-200, FZ-80, FZ-82). If you mount the camera onto a tripod etc. the battery and SD Card are inaccessible. Previous models had the bay door set at a different angle. The ALZO Digital plate allows you to mount the plate in such a way that the battery and SD Card can be changed without disturbing the mount. The only minor complaint is the user instructions shows the plate the wrong way round and a bit of head-scratching until you realise that the screw heads are inserted the wrong way.
