What's the difference between Capture's plates/kits?

Capture is a clip that rigidly carries cameras and other devices on any belt or strap. Capture can be purchased with a plate (Standard Plate - meant for cameras), or it can be purchased without a plate so you can build a custom solution.

Capture's different plates/kits allow Capture to hold different devices:
