      Although this bracket is made for the D600, Kirk made a manufacturing error. It is supposed to allow access to all the electronic connections, but it doesn't. The port for the GPS, also used for the electronic shutter release, is partially covered by the bracket and needs to be slightly bored out by a drill so that the panel opens properly. It's minor and easily fixed, but it bears mentioning. Other than this, it's lightweight and well made. Just be prepared to make a minor modification to allow complete access.

      Almost perfect

      The ad said that it didn't interfere with the various camera access ports, however the access to the USB port requires very small fingers or a thin pointed instrument to open the cover.

        Comments about Kirk BL-D600 L-Bracket for Nikon D600 and D610:

        This is the second L-Bracket purchased for another Nikon camera and very pleased with the results on the D610. Very easy to adjust and use a radio control for the shutter release so the L-Bracket stays on the camera all the time. I like the added protection that it gives the camera.

        Comments about Kirk BL-D600 L-Bracket for Nikon D600 and D610:

        Purchased this bracket for my new Nikon D610 and it works perfectly with two different ball heads. It is light weight and fits well. Kirk has great machined quality products, but you pay a premimum price. I looked carefully at L-bracket and thought it would also work on my D300 -- it does -- thanks to the sliding screw in the slot.

          Comments about Kirk BL-D600 L-Bracket for Nikon D600 and D610:

          Perfect fit on a D610 and the extra weight makes the camera feel more balanced. Doesn't interfere with the screen protector and allows quick change between vertical and horizontal photos. Should offer a bit of protection to the camera body aswell as it is very solid. I have other Kirk plates and the anodising on this bracket does not seem so deep black and shiny on this-doesn't bother me but just happened to notice it.

                    Works as it should. I like that the LCD cover can remain on the camera when using this plate although it becomes difficult to access the USB port on the side with this attached. Disappointed that there are no "safety screws" on the bottom to prevent the plate from sliding out of the Arca clamp when loosened but not opened.

                        I know there are cheaper alternatives, but prefer USA made.

                          I use this L-Bracket with my Kirk BH-3 ballhead. Wasn't sure about the idea of an L-bracket but after using it last week I am so glad I purchased. It attaches easily to the camera. When you want to shoot vertically, just detach the camera from the ball head and flip it to vertical. This I especially like because the ball head remains in the same position.

                            I generally buy plates from Really Right Stuff, however, they specifically call out that their L-plate is not compatible with the Nikon LCD Screen Protector. After finding out that Kirk's is compatible, it was a done deal to get this one and I have no regrets at all. This thing is solid and works perfectly with the screen protector.

                              Comments about Kirk BL-D600 L-Bracket for Nikon D600 and D610:

                              The bracket fits my D600 very well. The camera is now much more stable on my tripod than previously with a general purpose tripod quick release plate. Previously when I used a general purpose plate, the camera body always dropped down a little bit after I fastened my ball head. Now the problem is gone. The bracket is built by one piece metal with very nice black finish.

                              The bracket is also compatible with the LCD cover on D600.

                              The only issue is that it is difficult to connect cables after the bracket is fitted. The space tween the bracket and the camera body is very jammed and it causes the difficulty.

                                      I have used this style of bracket for my D200 and now the D600. It is a great bracket that allows easy movement from landscape to portrait. A must if you own a Kirk ball head.

                                          This went on the camera upon arrival and it hasn't been off since. It attaches quite securely to the camera body with the added advantage that the position can be adjusted to accommodate cabling at the left side of the body. Well done. The fly in the ointment is that the mounting screw is a round-head Allen screw. So, if you don't have an Allen wrench with you . . .

                                            Well made, solid construction, nice finish. Works with the screen protector. There really aren't any negatives that I can think of.

                                              This is the forst time I've purchased a Kirk product and I am really impressed. I've used mostly products from RRS in the past but decided on the Kirk L plate this time because I had a girft card to B&H and they don't sell the RRS products. This L plate is very small and unobtrusive, and fits perfectly with the design of the D600. I love using L plates because of the ability to switch effortlessly from landscape to portrait orientation without having to move my ballhead -- it also keeps the mass centered over the tripod, so better balance. This plate is nicely machined, light weight and like I said, a perfect fit for the compact size of the D600.

                                                I chose this bracket over the RRS being that I can still use my camera's screen protector. This bracket is top notch and American made as well!

                                                  This works as advertised, except that for tethered shooting (or using the wired shutter release) you have to loosen the machine screw in the bottom and slide the whole bracket over to allow the flaps on the camera to open completely. While this is kind of a pain, I can forsee that it may be beneficial to anyone shooting tethered because it will protect the cables (it works like a built in cable spacer). I usually use my wireless remote anyway so it is not a big deal for me. Kirk was nice and marked the sensor center line on the bracket in all 3 positions (vertical plus both horizontal positions).

                                                        Comments about Kirk BL-D600 L-Bracket for Nikon D600 and D610:

                                                        This is my 3rd Kirk L-Bracket. I have purchased one for each of my last three cameras. They are custom made for each camera and fit so well that they are almost unnoticeable. The bracket allows the camera to be attached to the ball head quickly and securely in both landscape and portrait positions. I have also used the L-Bracket to attach a hand strap and a sling strap to the camera.
