Meticulously designed, it enables fast changes between portrait and landscape orientation while maintaining access to your cameras valuable connection ports and battery compartment.
The concept of the L-bracket removes the need to re-adjust your tripod head and completely recompose for different shots. The user can simply release the bracket from nearly any Arca-type compatible quick release clamp, tilt it 90°, and lock the bracket back in place. Using an L-bracket also facilitates a sturdier base of support than tilting an entire head to a 90° position and puts less strain on your support gear.
For camera attachment the plate features a captive 1/4"-20 stainless steel mounting screw—an adjacent 1/4"-20 socket is also included for directly mounting the bracket without an Arca-type clamp. The base of the bracket also includes an integrated hand strap loop for those who use a hand strap which requires use of the camera's tripod socket.
Kirk L-Brackets are constructed of two separate parts—a base plate and side-arm—which appear detachable in the images above. It is important to note that the screws attaching the vertical side-arm to the base plate are not removable and thus, the L-Bracket may not be disassembled.
