The Sunwayfoto PCL-5DIII L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark III Without Battery Grip enables fast changes between portrait and landscape orientation with your Canon 5D Mark III – without the need to readjust your head and completely recompose the shot. 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 PCL-5DIII specifically for the Canon 5D Mark III without a battery grip attached. It features four safety stop mounting holes on the back of the bracket. A gap on the vertical side of the bracket provides access to the remote code.

The camera can be mounted in several different positions to achieve proper balance
Smooth corners, with a convex edge to prevent the camera from twisting
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

          Comments about Sunwayfoto PCL-5DIII L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark III Without Battery Grip:

          I bought this as an alternative to the more expensive Markins L-bracket to use on a Markins Ball head on my travel tripod. After reading some reviews, I wasn't sure what the fit was going to be like or if there would be any play, but decided to try it.Overall, the build quality seems fine and I'm not worried about something breaking or falling apart. However, the horizontal fit wasn't perfect, with a touch of play. Since I use this setup for timelapse, any play is unacceptable. Vertically, the fit was tight with no play whatsoever, so it's a bit confusing why there would be a variance from horizontal to vertical. A simple fix for me was to adhere two small felt pad stickers, which removed the play and also avoids the metal-on-metal scratching.For the fit, I'd give it three stars, but because the price is right, I can't rate it quite that low. Plus, I only have a Markins head and can't speak to the fit for other Arca-style systems.

                First off, this is fully acra swiss compatible. Not sure what this other person was referring to......Fits well, but not perfect. A tiny bit of play with the bracket and camera if not perfectly tight... One needs to be careful when tightening aligning the plate with the camera....

                      from the photo it looks like this is arca-swiss compatible, but not so "unless" you have a long base for the 2 bottom "spacing" bolts to rest on. If your arca swiss base is a short one, it won't fit properly. Probably works well with the dedicated base

                      Comments about Sunwayfoto PCL-5DIII L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark III Without Battery Grip:

                      Bought this as it was the only availabke L-bracket for the just-released 5DmarkIII at the time. After mounting it to my camera a dozen times, the head of the mounting screw tore off just as I was preparing to leave for an important shoot. Sunwayfoto use a different type of screws than the old Kirk and RRS L-brackets I have lying around, so a quick DIY repair was out of the question, and I had to do without a L-bracket for an assignment abroad that lasted several days. This is the first time ever that I have exprienced the head of a screw just come off like that, which to me suggests that Sunwayfoto is a cheap chinese maker, using cheap metal alloys, that any serious photographer should avoid like the plague. You have been warned.

                        This L-bracket enables me to quickly and adapt my 5D3 to landscape or portrait mount on my Markins ballhead. It is light, but sufficient thicknesses to the aluminium sections for structural rigidity. It allows easy assess to the cable ports on the LHS. And it is cheapr than the other brand names but does not scarifice in functionality or quality. A very good product.

                          Dont overlook this "L" bracket.
                          Just as nice as the RRS & Kirk for less money.

                          Contoured like the RRS or Kirk to match the 5D3's rounded base.
                          Comes in a nice box with extra safety stop screws and 2 allen keys that are not listed in its description.
                          Fits like a glove on camera, works beautifully on the BH55.
                          Slots are accessible and remote cable release fits perfect.
                          Excellent lower-priced alternative to RRS
