Best Nikon D5 D4 D3 L-Bracke L-PlateBest Nikon D5 D4 D3 L-Bracke L-Plate

 L-Bracket L-Plate Arca-Swiss Type for Nikon D5 D4s D4 D3x D3s D3 Series DSLR Cameras

This ProMediaGear L-Bracket has been designed specifically custom fitted for Nikon Professional bodies.

L-Brackets or L-Plates allow for really fast changes between portrait and landscape orientations, without the need of tripod head readjustment and re-composition. You simply release the bracket from your tripod head, flip it at 90 degrees mounting it back into the tripod head. Compatible with Arca-Swiss type standards from all major manufacturers.

Benefits or mounting on vertical side facilitates a more stable platform than tilting 90 degrees as the camera mounts directly over center of tripod apex. It is much easier and more stable to switch between horizontal and vertical shooting orientation when using a tripod with the L-Plate. With the L-Plate you also benefit in shooting vertical panoramas and are able to maintain a consistent nodal point.

The L-Bracket has been machined from solid Aluminum T6061 block and black anodized for scratch resistant finish. The main feature of this L-Bracket is its two-piece design; the vertical piece of the L-Bracket can be extended or removed, this allows for the use of just the base plate if desired. Custom Fitting the L-Bracket to Canon 5D Mark IV with the BG-E20 battery grip ensures that the L-plate rests directly on the camera eliminating any play or twisting.

I have just got off the phone to the rep. and we discussed the inability to mount this unit on a D3 with a gimbal head. These heads by nature are built to facilitate longer lenses with tripod collars and not cameras in landscape mode. I did some research and found a knob type plate that indeed slides into my Jobu Design and allows the camera to be mounted for landscape shots. However the Promedia L plate does not allow enough room to mount a camera horizontally. So beware. If you are a user that likes to switch back and forth on a gimbal head do your research. Chris

I recently got back into film photography using a Nikon F5. I've used PMG L brackets and flash brackets on my digital Nikons and wanted to set up the F5 the same way. Unfortunately, L brackets are not available for older cameras. Working with the guys at PMG, we came up with a solution using the PBX3 Universal Bracket Plate and the L portion of the PLND5x L-Bracket for the D5. I was apprehensive about the PBX3 twisting on the camera base. So far is shows no signs of twisting. The D5 part is a little long but works well. If I was doing this again I might have selected the D850 L bracket instead of the D5. All in all I am very happy with the outcome and may thanks to PMG for helping. Great products and a great organization.
