      I have used Kirk and RRS gear for years. For mounting and stability purposes, you cannot beat them. They are the sturdiest, lightest, best built plates and l brackets available.

      And if anyone is wondering, they are fully interchangeable. Buy with confidence and know that you are buying in the best support system on the market.

      I will take the other reviewers' word for it that this bracket fits the d800 and 800E nicely. It does not fit the d810 well at all. Even setting the bracket out in the slot a millimeter or two doesn't help. The center USB 3 door can be forced open to accept the connection, but you'd wear it out doing that. The bottom HDMI door won't work at all and that is what I need most for shooting with a connected monitor. To get the doors to open without jamming them back you'd have to have the bracket so far out to the left that the security of the bracket would be compromised (the contoured lip for grabbing the front of the camera would no longer match up). 2nd attempt report: The HDMI door is actually blocked by the bottom of the bracket along its entire bottom edge--as well as along the end of the door--when the bracket is flush with the side of the camera. I can get the USB 3 and HDMI doors to work if the bracket is moved enough to be a little less than a quarter of an inch off the side of the camera. Not what I want to see protecting several thousand dollars worth of gear, but I guess Kirk isn't going to make a special bracket for the 810.

      Comments about Kirk BL-D800 L-Bracket for Nikon D800, D800E and D810:

      Fits the D800 perfectly, allows you to change from Horizontal to Vertical in one quick move if used with the QRC-2 quick release clamp. Holds the camera firmly in the vertical position without it trying to turn lens down. The bracket works well in the field when hand holding the camera, it gives you something to hold onto. I leave the bracket on all the time.

          The product description says that this is Arca-swiss compatible. It should clearly say that it is not compatible with Arca-Swiss Slidefix clamps. They are smaller width clamps that this bracket does not fit into.

            This is the second bracket that I had purchased. I had bought one for another camera and I was impressed with the ease of use and the quality, so it was just naturally that I would purchase another one for my new camera.

                    from Red Feather Lakes, CO

                    Comments about Kirk BL-D800 L-Bracket for Nikon D800, D800E and D810:

                    As with the Kirk on my D610, this was a great, solid addition to my D810. However, immediately upon installing it I received a gift of a battery grip and called B&H to request a return authorization which they graciously allowed. I then bought the Kirk bracket that accommodates the battery grip. Again, a quality product backed by quality customer service. Highly recommended.

                            I haven't tried every L-bracket out there, but this one makes me think I don't have to. it's solid. The build quality is excellent, and importantly, it's well-designed, so that I can get to the ports on the side of my camera with it on.

                            Well thought out, well made.

                                First PC of Kirk equipment, I usually buy RRS. They were out of stock, so I bought the kirk. It is of equal quality to RRS and a little bit cheaper. The only thing I miss on it are the safety stop screws, but the input door for cables opens with out having to move the bracket which is a huge plus. I can with out a doubt recommend this product.

                                    This is the first Kirk plate I've owned. I own a leading competitor's product which I have on a Nikon D700. The Kirk plate is less expensive and superior to my other L-plate. I can't say enough about the superiority of dedicated L-plates over conventional base plates or screw mounting cameras to tripod heads. The L-plate makes switches between horizontal and vertical axis shots incredibly rapid and keeps the tripod head aligned with the tripod legs promoting greater tripod stability.

                                      I used this L-Bracket before for my nikon d 300 and it works great for vertical and horizontal position and it keeps the subject on the view finder so now I've got me another for my d 800.

                                        Wish I would have treated myself to this years ago. The product is very high quality and fits nearly like a second skin. On the vertical part of the bracket however there is contact on the beveled part of the body around the strap ring that could be slightly redesigned to fit flush along the side of the camera.body.

                                          I use Acratech, RRS, Gitzo and Kirk for anything support related but always get Kirk for my L-Plates as I just prefer the finish and how they mount (the design).

                                          This L-bracket is excellent just like my BL-D800G (for the D800 and MB-D12). Zero play once mounted and it has a mark for the centre of the sensor when I have the camera in a vertical orientation.
