        I use this on a Canon Dx camera and Gitzo tripod with RRR ball head. No problems and it is cheaper than RRR.

              Comments about Kirk BL-1DX L-Bracket for Canon 1D X:

              If you haven`t used an L-bracket before, it`s about time! Given that you found one you`re in the market, and they´re great, well worth the price if you actually use a tripod that is.. I currently have four, one for each camera and as for Canon 1 series cameras I have used one for every model since the original 1 DS. This is my first Kirk L-bracket, previously all my plates are from RRS. This time I needed a plate that would incorporate the gps module when traveling and this one seemed like the best solution, and at the best price as well. I have used it for more than a year now, and it works perfectly. Yes the opening for all cables on the side are narrow, but really, what did you expect? Fittings are good however and my only small issue is fitting the cable release in a hurry when using the bracket with the gps module fitted, it`s, well you guessed it, narrow. Be aware that it makes the camera quite big, wide that is, when mounted with gps. Even a big camera bag gets small really quickly. Fits the camera perfectly, balancing is also perfect. Protects the camera well, mine`s taken some beating, broke a 24-70II literally in two when the camera fell flat on the back, but the camera is without a scratch (the bracket is not but hey..). Fits the RRS heads with lever-release clamp like the BH-55 LR (they warn that it might not, but it does).

                Comments about Kirk BL-1DX L-Bracket for Canon 1D X:

                This L-Bracket was made for me. It just feels right on the tripod and balances the camera perfectly. Easier to attach to the Arca-Swiss type head.
                Also, the bracket fits and holds on to the Canon 1DX not allowing it to move from side to side.

                Comments about Kirk BL-1DX L-Bracket for Canon 1D X:

                The Kirk L-plates I had purchased for several other cameras all worked perfectly; this one is a little tight when trying to open the connection doors. I can get them open to attach cables only by sliding the plate a bit away from the body. Otherwise well made and sturdy.

                  I bought one for my 7D+grip and for the 1Dx.
                  I think that product is essential for everybody with a DSLR.

                    Comments about Kirk BL-1DX L-Bracket for Canon 1D X:

                    I wanted to purchase a bracket that would not mare the bottom of my new 1Dx and this product does just that, and makes it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting without having to adjust the tripod height each time.

                    This well built L-bracket allows easy access to the battery and all your other connections when mounted on the camera.
