Product Highlights
  • Arca-Style Dovetail on Both Segments
  • Machined from Aircraft-Grade Aluminum
  • 4.3" Horizontal Segment
  • 3.1" Vertical Segment
  • Several Mounting Positions
  • Detachable Flange
  • Sturdier Portrait Orientation
  • Reorient & Maintain Head Position

The Sunwayfoto DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket Quick-Release Plate enables fast changes between portrait and landscape orientation – without the need to readjust your head and completely recompose the shot. Because there are dovetail grooves on both the horizontal and vertical elements, you can simply release the bracket from your Arca-style quick-release clamp (not included), 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.

Machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminum, the DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket fits most SLR film cameras and of course DSLRs – it was built with the Nikon D80/D700/D7000 and Canon 7D specifically in mind. The DPL-03 features several 1/4"-20 screw mounting holes so that you can select the proper side-to-side position of your camera. To keep the camera from twisting, there's a flange on one side. To accommodate large cameras, the flange can be removed easily.

The camera can be mounted in several horizontal positions to achieve proper balance, at holes 1.58-3.0" from the vertical element of the bracket
The flange includes mounting hardware for attaching and detaching it from the bracket
Smooth corners
High-quality anodizing ensures a scratch-free finish
The strap hole provides a spot for fastening a camera strap, for carrying the camera comfortably and securely while it's mounted to the bracket
Standard screw mounting holes on both the horizontal and vertical segments of the bracket

        Comments about Sunwayfoto DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket Quick-Release Plate:

        This L-Bracket works well with Canon 70D or 50D especially for vertical shots on a Manfrotto head.

        The short side fits on the quick release slide of the head with the 1/4" bolt and the long side fits on the camera with the 1/4 bolt that comes with the L-Bracket. There is plenty of room on the bracket to turn the LCD monitor

        Comments about Sunwayfoto DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket Quick-Release Plate:

        It was a great solution for monobolds that cant be moved vertically. The problem is that it´s not large enought so that cables like usb or hdmi or shutter, in case of 5D Mark ii and Nikon D800 , can be plugged. If you don´t need to plugg any cable, its a great tool.

          Comments about Sunwayfoto DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket Quick-Release Plate:

          As a Sigma user, there are not many choices for L-Brackets. RSS and Acratech are both a little thicker, and I wanted something that mounted flush to keep more space available in the bag. This can be mounted on the left hand side and this allows access to both the battery and memory card. I would have preferred to be able to mount it flush on the left hand side. You can do this, but it does block the shutter release cable port.

          Overall this is the best solution that I have found. The Hejnar photo universal bracket is another choice, but that is two pieces and I was worried about stability

            Works great with my Mamiya AFD3 and Canon 1DM3 camera on my Induro BHD1 and other tripod heads that requre Arca-Swiss compatible heads. Pretty quick to go landscape to portrait and back. I can't understand why Arca-Swiss has to charge about $250 for a piece of metal. But this one was around $80... that's a deal to me... maybe I'll buy an extra one??
