The L-Bracket was designed to quickly mount your camera onto an Arca-swiss style ball head in landscape or portrait shooting positions. It is a camera accessory that stays permanently attached to your camera and lets you clamp it to the ball head mounted on your tripod.
ProMediaGear L-Brackets allows for fast changes between portrait and landscape orientations, without the need for tripod head readjustment and re-composition. You simply release the bracket from your tripod head, flip it 90 degrees mounting it back into the tripod head.
Should you get a universal L-Bracket for any camera?
If you have multiple camera units or you upgrade regularly, a universal L-bracket is a great investment. You can easily remove it from one body and transfer it to another.
Having a universal L-bracket on hand is handy whenever you are shooting landscapes. It makes changing composition easier. It also reduces the risk of your camera setup falling down due to an imbalanced position.

The base plates for all these models can also be used as a flash bracket. These L-brackets have hard black anodized surface coating with a wear-resistant finish and has been machined from solid Aluminum T6061 block.
The accessories are 100% made, designed and assembled in the USA.
Since this is a universal L-Bracket, if the battery on the Grip is accessed from the L-bracket side it will block the battery. In that case, a custom L-bracket is recommended.
