The 3" Universal L-Bracket from ProMediaGear fits smaller cameras of varied sizes, formats and brands and enables fast changes between portrait and landscape orientation without the need to readjust your head and recompose the shot. You can simply release the bracket from your Arca-Swiss style quick-release clamp (not included), and lock the bracket back in place on its vertical side. Using an L-Bracket for vertical orientation shooting also facilitates a sturdier base of support than tilting the head to a 90° position. By utilizing a slightly protruding rubber cord on the base plate, the L-bracket rests directly on the camera eliminating any play or twisting.

This L-Bracket is designed as two separate pieces which enables the base plate to be used separately. The vertical bracket can be extended outward 1.5" from the camera body for better cable port and battery chamber access and simplified centering of your image. This bracket is designed for smaller camera bodies that do not have custom L-brackets. It will not fit cameras with battery grips attached. A removable strap loop and built-in, magnetic Allen wrench storage are featured. 

Fits most "smaller" cameras of various formats and brands.
Two-piece design enables versatility when mounting the bracket. The vertical bracket can be removed when only the base piece is needed. Also, the vertical plate can be extended outward on two hardened steel rods to allow easier access for cables and also to better position the image center.
Arca-Swiss type compatibility fits heads by Arca-Swiss, Kirk, Markins, Really Right Stuff, Wimberley and others.
Two safety stops are incorporated into both the vertical and base pieces.
Built from anodized aluminum alloy.
Rubber cords in the base plate provide a snug fit for varying camera body sizes and prevent slipping and twisting.
Features 1/4"-20 threads on base plate.
Provides magnetic Allen wrench holder.

    Universal L-Bracket (3") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Solution for Olympus EM-1 I was looking for a better tripod plate for a MeFoto carbon tripod, to use with the Olympus EM-1. The standard plate was too small and unstable. I looked at Really Right Stuff and they make a customized L-plate for the EM-1, but it interferes with the ports on the left side. You really need to access the ports for shutter release, etc. Anyway, I found this on B&H and it works great because the vertical brace allows easy access to the ports. I chose the 3 version so it would leave the battery compartment accessible. The orange strips are a little wide for the EM-1, so only one side makes good contact. Still, the plate is sits solid, is well made and less expensive than other options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend Looking at pictures bracket seemed to be a good fit on my camera. So I bought it. When received the bracket looks nice and solid with great finish. Love the fact it's made in USA. Fits Nikon D5200 great, extending is great, serves me remarkably well. Magnetic Storage wrench is a great idea, keeps it handy. Also I may use the -20 threads if I ever buy a cold shoe for the top, or side, might by handy when I do video. Love the Arca-Swiss system. There are many ports or threads on the bracket, maybe useful for something I don't yet know. Very good for the price. Would recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I use this on my Sony alpha 6000 and it fits well for my purposes. While it does cover the ports on the left side of the camera, it's not a problem for me. Well-made product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful piece of gear Construction quality is excellent and I really like the versatile hole pattern. The rubber strips have so far kept the camera for twisting on the mount. Having the wrench embedded in the bracket is a brilliant idea and very useful, even though I "usually" have a wrench with me. I bought this bracket primarily to use on my Canon G3X camera, and also occasionally on my EOS 7D Mark II. My other cameras all have dedicated L-brackets, but I didn't want to invest in dedicated ones for these 2 cameras. The PMG unit is great. The other use I have is that sometimes someone without an L-bracket joins me for a shoot, and I thought it would be nice to have a spare bracket for them. This one fits the cameras I've tried it with as long as the camera doesn't have an add-on battery grip (B&H has another PMG universal bracket for those). Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile L bracket I was looking for a universal L bracket to accommodate both Leica M-P 240 and a Nikon D500. The ProMediaGear Universal L Bracket-3" fits both bodies perfectly. I did not want to take a chance that the Really Right Stuff L bracket for the Leica M240 would not work with the Leica M-P 240 (a problem with the RRS bottom plate magnet). The magnetic hex wrench is convenient. Perfect L bracket to use with multiple bodies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bracket, good value Solves my problem perfectly: a cost-effective L-Bracket for my Leica M 240 with a handgrip. There are much more expensive solutions that may be more robust in the long run, but I am not rough with my equipment, nor am I using this on a daily or even weekly basis. I trust it with my camera and Leica glass, which says as much as anything about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product and good construction Love this product. I used this for my Fujifilm X-T1 and it great how you can adjust the bracket to your length so you can access the side part. With the side part you can even have wire connected for long exposure which is great!! :) Very good construction too and loving it! Highly recommend to anyone who is looking at L-bracket

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bracket Works fine. However, on my Canon 5D4, the vertical bracket partially covers up the sockets. I have to remove or pull out that bracket to get to them. I seldom use them, however. Could have avoided this by spending more and getting the custom bracket.
