Camera L Bracket functionality question?

4 years 2 months ago #508021 by TCooper
Arca universal camera L bracket vs let's say one from Really Right Stuff that is made specific for a camera body.  Going with the Arca, will there be any functionality lose compared to picking up the RRS one?

As long as the ports can be accessed using either will be good. I use a nice Sunwayfoto for my D800, less cash and just perfect fit. My D7100 has a Desmond on it, but the side remote access is a problem. I haven't spent the big cash for a dedicated unit because I'd still have to shoot in vertical orientation at times and the corded remote is simply in a lousy place.
My "L" brackets remain on the bodies at all times.... 

Why so serious?

Have you looked at the one from Pro Media Gear?  Much better price than RRS.

I've been looking at getting one myself.

I've have two RRS L-brackets that I have used for many years and I love them.  I use one on my Canon T4i and the other on my Canon XSi.  I leave them attached at all times.  If you decide on the RSS unit, be sure to get the spacer/adapter for shooting in the vertical position.  It eliminates problems with the remote control cord; and it fits on both of my L-plates.

The promedia brackets are nice, but if you see them next to the RRS, there is no comparison.  Buy the RRS if you want my 2 cents.

+1 RRS, it just feels better and more secure
