Kirk BL-D500N overview

  • 1Description

This BL-D500N L-Bracket for Nikon D500 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-D500N reviews

    BL-D500N L-Bracket for Nikon D500 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid and a perfect fit. When I ordered my D500 I made sure to order the L for it at the same time. I've had an L bracket on my D810 for the last couple of years and love it so much that there was no question I would want to have one for my new camera. It fits perfectly and feels so solid. I've found using the L brackets cuts down my time in going from horizontal to vertical on my tripod (with the Kirk B1 ballhead on it) and provides a tight fit with the ballhead. I feel confident that my camera is secure and I don't worry about it taking a tumble.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made product, but pricey The product arrived on time, and appears to be well made. It is a little pricey. The only drawback is the need to carry the allen wrench in camera bag - which isn't always with me. It also doesn't provide a locking pin area for my Fiesel ballhead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bracket I have used Kirk's brackets for my Nikon cameras for many years. When I bought D500, I ordered this bracket right away without any window shopping. So far it worked perfectly for me.
