ProMediaGear PLX4x Universal L-Bracket Overview
The ProMediaGear PLX4x Universal L-Bracket is perfect for cameras with a battery grip. It fits large cameras with a vertical grip regardless of brand.
This bracket is compatible with Arca-Swiss clamps. This means you can use it with any Arca-compatible tripods, monopods, and other accessories. However, it is best used with ProMediaGear carbon fiber tripods.
ProMediaGear uses aircraft-grade T6061 Aluminum for this bracket. It is lightweight and durable. Plus, it has a black-anodized scratch-resistant finish.
There are two parts to this L-bracket. The vertical plate extends to fit the camera body. Unlike other brackets, the vertical part extends to free up the cable ports. Besides that, the battery compartment remains accessible.
Lastly, this bracket has an integrated SS2 or QD camera strap port. With the right attachments, you can convert your camera to a tiny rig.
Despite the universal compatibility, cameras without battery grips do not work with the PLX4x. The vertical part is too tall for shorter camera bodies.

I was actually surprices by the good building quality of this product.
I own some Promediagear DSLR's brackets. All of them are excellent products. Except this one that have a very cheap round magnet for holding an allen key. I loose the magnet and allen key during my first day of usage.
After looking everywhere for an Arca-compatible bracket for my Nikon F6 with motor drive, I took a shot at this bracket, and I'm glad that I did. While it does not allow easy access to the motor drive battery compartment, I think it will be rare that I'll need to change batteries. I'd give this 5 stars except for the fact that the stainless steel rods that extend from the base to the upright have some flex to them, so I have to bump the upright against the camera body to prevent losing a couple of degrees of vertical. Seeing the quality overall, I'm wishing I had started with PMG products from the beginning, but it would be pricey to switchover now. The easily removable strap quick release plugs look like a well thought out alternatives to Think Tank or BlackRapid connectors.
I use phase one DF+ at the moment. This Item totally fit with my Phase one body! I really happy with this item and phase one df+.
This Universal L-bracket, with its many accessory attachment points and modular flexibility, works very well with my Nikon F4e SLR. It is beautifully designed, machined and finished, and very reasonably priced. Be advised, though, that the new design of the vertical element of the "L," with its centrally located accessory anchoring point, will interfere with the connection ports on the left side of a DSLR. A bracket custom-designed for your particular DSLR model is best here. With that one caveat, I heartily recommend this thoroughly pro-grade piece of gear.
