ProMediaGear PLX3x Universal L-Bracket Overview
The ProMediaGear PLX3x Universal L-Bracket is perfect for cameras without a battery grip. It fits various camera sizes regardless of brand. You can attach it to either a full-frame or a crop-sensor camera.
The PLX3x is a small L-bracket at 3-inches only. Yet, it fits most of the camera models available in the market today. That being said, it is a good option if you have multiple camera bodies.
In addition, this bracket is compatible with Arca-Swiss clamps. This means you can use it with any tripod or monopod from other brands. But, it is best used with ProMediaGear carbon fiber tripods.
Moreover, ProMediaGear uses aircraft-grade T6061 Aluminum for this bracket. It is lightweight and durable. Plus, it has a black-anodized finish too.
There are two parts to this L-bracket. The vertical plate extends to fit the camera body. Unlike other brackets, the vertical part extends further 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 with battery grips do not work with the PLX3x. The vertical part is too short for the added height of the grip. However, the ProMediaGear PLX4X Universal L-Bracket is available for the same price.
Weight: 4.32oz (122grams)
Dimensions: 3.5 x 1.5 x 4.0 in (8.9 x 3.8 x 10.2 cm)
- Really Right Stuff
Why use a universal camera L-bracket?
The main reason why you should get a universal l-bracket is if you have multiple camera bodies. It is more affordable compared to a custom-camera L-bracket.
L-brackets allow you to switch from portrait to landscape mode without affecting the composition drastically. Also, it protects the camera from drops and accidents. Despite protecting the bottom and left part only, it is better than having no protection at all.
However, a universal l-bracket has a downside. It does not fit as tight as custom-fitted l-brackets.
Camera-specific brackets are precisely cut to match the grooves or curves that a camera has. Yet it comes at a higher price tag.
But if that is not an issue, you may purchase a universal L-bracket. The PLX3x is a wise choice as it is affordable and lasts a long time.
Great accessory to my camera system, highly customizable and I don't ever have to worry about the plate sliding or failing.
Incredible L-Bracket ! Versatile and well build ! Fit perfectly on Canon EOS R without adjustments.
I got this plate so I could use it on my two different DSLR bodies and not have to buy a dedicated one for each camera. My initial concern was that it might not be as solid as the one-piece, dedicated L-bracket. However, this Universal L-Bracket is, as I said, ROCK SOLID! I'm able to quickly switch from landscaped to portrait orientation and this bracket holds my Nikon D750 with 14-24 zoom like it's nothing. I'm totally satisfied with this product, along with my ProMediaGear TR344L tripod! Thanks, PMG!
Although it’s not custom bracket it is a module bracket and therefore it serve my needs in terms of weight, size and cost. Also the machining is top notch.
The fit is perfect !!!! This is for my Pentax K1000 camera which, I have had sine the 80’s. Now, I can put it on my PMG tripod and take better photographs. PMG makes the very best products !!!!! J. Payne
