Camera Quick Release Plates and L-Brackets
Camera quick release plates are faster and more accessible than traditional camera mounting plates. Adjustable L-brackets allow you to rotate your camera without taking it off of the camera tripod, for easy portrait and landscape shots.
What Are Quick Release Plates?
Tripod quick release plates attach to your camera as well as a quick-locking mechanism on tripods or other camera supports or rigs. The plates can remain on your gear, or you can remove them without affecting camera or camcorder function. Quick release plates are useful for sports, portrait, and wildlife shoots that require you to stay quick and mobile.
Types of L-Brackets
Adjustable L-brackets are a fitting choice if you do landscape photography, as they shift your camera effortlessly from horizontal to vertical position. Slotted L-brackets offer openings that allow you to access audio and video ports on your camera while it's mounted. Use L-brackets with base plates to secure your camera to a tripod and make moving equipment easier.
Choosing Quick Release Plates and Brackets
Quick release plates and L-brackets are made for certain camera manufacturers to help ensure the most secure fit and best release. Universal or non-dedicated quick release plates or L-brackets offer support for several camera manufacturers and models. While some brackets and plates are interchangeable, it's best to check quick release accessories and plates for compatibility before making a purchase. L-brackets offer better on-mount positioning, while tripod quick release plates let you switch between handheld and mounted shots easily.
B&H Photo and Video offers L-brackets, quick release plates, and base plates to help you get the most from your equipment, without all the extra steps. Choose from a variety of dedicated plates and brackets for your cameras and camcorders.
