Kirk BL-K1N overview

  • 1Description

This BL-K1N L-Bracket for Pentax K1 from Kirk Enterprises is an Arca-type compatible bracket machined from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Meticulously designed, it enables fast changes between portrait and landscape orientation while maintaining access to your cameras valuable connection ports and battery compartment.

The concept of the L-bracket removes the need to re-adjust your tripod head and completely recompose for different shots. The user can simply release the bracket from nearly any Arca-type compatible quick release clamp, tilt it 90°, and lock the bracket back in place. During re-adjustment, precise positioning is maintained by aligning both your camera and clamp with the centering lines engraved into the L-bracket's base and side. Using an L-bracket also facilitates a sturdier base of support than tilting an entire head to a 90° position and puts less strain on your support gear.

For camera attachment the plate features a captive 1/4"-20 stainless steel mounting screw—an adjacent 1/4"-20 socket is also included for directly mounting the bracket without an Arca-type clamp. The base of the bracket also includes an integrated hand strap loop for those who use a hand strap which requires use of the camera's tripod socket.

The "N" series of Kirk L-Brackets, much like their predecessors, are constructed of two separate parts—a base plate and side-arm—which appear detachable in the images above. It is important to note that the screws attaching the vertical side-arm to the base plate are not removable and thus, the L-Bracket may not be disassembled.

    Kirk BL-K1N reviews

    BL-K1N L-Bracket for Pentax K1 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made L-bracket This is my first L-bracket. I bought it as it's designed specifically for the Pentax K-1. All the camera features are accessible when the bracket is installed. My only concern is that there is a tiny, yet perceptible, wiggle of the vertical arm. I'm hoping the slight movement won't increase over time. However, it may be that the bracket is supposed to do this, so I'll contact Kirk to make sure.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kirk L- bracket for Pentax K1 Fits the K1 body well, with access to the rubber flap doors still possible, albeit arkward. Rigid and no twist or movement when mounted on an arca type ball-head grip. Cheaper that RRS and as good as my other RRS L plates. The low cost DHL shipping option if you are overseas is good value ($14) but soooo slow!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This bracket fits my Pentax K1 perfectly and does exactly what I needed. The piece seems to be really well made, which makes it a great bargain. I've used it with my Nodal Rail to make panoramas and it couldn't have worked any better.
