    A simple one; could someone confirm if the Movi M10 camera plate is the same as the M15 camera plate (the lower plate).

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    it is not. M15 plate is wide, I think a little longer, and has a new hole pattern.

    The M10 and M15 plates are interchangeable. The M15 plate is longer and has two slotted holes and two regular 1/4" holes.

    Oh, my mistake, I guess it only looks wider, but isn't actually. I guess I never held them up side by side before.

    Thanks Bryan, that's really useful. Good to see they have incorporated more flexible holes in the plate as well!

    What screws go on to the M15 top and bottom plates? Are they included in the package? Thanks.

    Luobu, are you talking about the 1/4-20 screws that bolt the plates onto the camera?

    They come with a set of screws and a spare. Or for $3 you can buy more 1/4-20 bolts from Freefly. They have a tapered head, so normal hex-head or Phillips head 1/4-20 screws from the hardware store won't work with Freefly plates.
