  • 1Description

Enabling reliable camera support for both horizontal and vertical shooting atop a tripod or monopod, the PCL-5DIIIR L Bracket from Sunwayfoto is dedicated to the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR and is compatible with both Arca-type and Really Right Stuff clamp designs. A convex edge design cradles the camera to prevent twisting or shifting during use and safety stop screws prevent accidental slipping during installation or removal. The left side of the bracket features a broad gap to allow unrestricted access to the camera's ports and the skeleton-style design helps to minimize the overall weight. With Arca-style dovetails incorporated on both sides of the bracket, as well as a durable aluminum alloy construction, this L bracket benefits a faster and more efficient tripod workflow.

Dedicated to the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR without an accessory battery grip.
Arca-style dovetails on both sides of the bracket are compatible with both Arca and Really Right Stuff style clamps and permit quick switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
A convex edge design prevents the camera from twisting or shifting when attached. Additionally, safety stop screws prevent accidental slipping when during installation and removal.
The left side of the bracket features a gap to permit full access to all of the camera's ports.
Skeleton-style design minimizes the overall weight while a CNC-machined aluminum alloy construction, with black anodized finish, benefits its durability.

    Sunwayfoto PCL-5DIIIR reviews

    PCL-5DIIIR L Bracket for Canon 5D Mark III DSLR is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Permanent Apendage Custom fit for the 5D Mark III, I have never found the need to remove this amazing piece of gear. It's attached by a simple screw, made with high quality materials, allows access to all camera ports, fits both my MePhoto and Manfrotto tripods, and it never, ever slips!! I don't know how I got by before this made switching camera orientation so easily. Actually, I remember the frustration all too well, the tripod tipping from lack of balance when cocking the camera all the way to the right, having to fully recompose and re-level my ball head, and cursing how many times I pinched my finger in the process. I am so glad those days are gone. This bracket is well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Build Quality, Better Price!!! The build quality is as good for its use as any of the competitors models out there. I actually think Sunwayfoto has taken it one step further and has offset the vertical arm from the camera body to allow a timer cable to be fitted on with the L-Plate on a tripod. Some others charge extra for a spacer. Very happy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT exactly perpendicular - 90 I bought this L bracket, thinking that there should not be a big difference between this one and Kirk, RRS etc. I was looking for a dedicated bracket to prevent slippage in vertical (portrait) orientation so Arca and Novoflex were out. - The bracket could not be dropped in into a fully open Arca clamp. It still needed to be forced in. Not too much force though. Sunwayfoto bracket took it no problem. - Canon remote RS80N3 could be plugged in but just barely. The bracket didn't seem to be made very precisely. - Vertical and horizontal plates required different pressures on Sunwayfoto quick release clamp. This could be the nature of the L-bracket but again, it didn't feel right. - Finally, the camera was on my big studio stand, clamped from the bottom and positioned perfectly horizontal, looking down to the floor at 90. Then I released the camera and re-clamped it from the side, it wasn't levelled any more. It was off by a few degrees. This was repeated a number of times to rule out all other variables. This could be corrected relatively quickly if you're okay with that. I wasn't all that impressed, spending any kind of money on a piece of gear that's almost there. I will try Kirk next and see if that is better. Too bad - the Sunwayfoto is going back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from *****GREAT VALUE**** Regardless of price this L Palate is simple excellent. Great Fit and finish and very well made. Shoot with wired remote in portrait on tripod with no cord access issues. Add a 90 degree mini USB plug and shoot portrait tethered as well! Throw in the price and it is simply stunning value when compared to the other dedicated plate options. VERY IMPRESSED

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Fits the 5D III perfectly. Can still open the side door to attach a remote shutter cable, etc. Sturdy, well engineered. Nice packaging. I liked it so much I also got a Sunwayfoto clamp plate for my Giotto ballhead which is ARCA and Manfrotto compatible - very handy. That is also very well made. I would not hesitate to use more Sunwayfoto products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for much less money! I bought this and the Sirui version at the same time to compare. They are the same. They look, feel and operate the same...for half the price. I have a Sirui tripod (which I love) and am fussy enough to want the same name on the bracket but really, for a savings of $60.00 I will forego the name. This makes carrying my 5D3 so much easier and changing from Horizontal to vertical so much easier. I only wish it had flip lock leg tighteners. I just like that style better but these twist locks will work fine, once I get used to them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT I use the product as designed. As a way of being able to flip from horizontal to vertical without modifing the tripod's head position. This unit is about 1/2 the price of the other unit that does exactly the same thing. WHY PAY MORE?--unless you just want the name. The only thing that is important to me in a device like this is functionality. For that it gets an A. The machining and finish are perfectly adequate! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bracket This is a great bracket at a fraction of the cost of others. It is well machined, light weight and has accurate markings, for centering on the head. It is a snug fit on my 5D MKIII (no wiggle) with ample room to access the terminal cover. It is compatible with my Wimberley Gimbal style head and my Really Right Stuff heads, allowing quick transition between heads without changing brackets.
