Kirk BL-5D4 overview

  • 1Description

The BL-5D4 L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark IV 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 strap loop for those who use a hand strap that requires use of the camera's tripod socket.

    Kirk BL-5D4 reviews

    BL-5D4 L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark IV is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I used a universal L-Bracket with my Canon 5D Mark III, but decided to get the Kirk bracket dedicated to the Canon 5D Mark IV shortly after changing cameras. Good decision. The bracket fits the camera beautifully and allows access to all ports. Because the port for the cable remote release is on the front of the Mark IV, rather than on the end, Kirk has made the L-bracket for the Mark IV less bulky on the end, making it more comfortable to hold and easier to fit into my Billingham Hadley Pro and Hadley Small shoulder bags. Leaving the L-bracket on the camera makes vertical shots with the tripod extremely convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit / slides easily for side port access 1. The L-bracket I received is a perfect fit for the 5D Mk IV. 2. A previous reviewer mentioned problems accessing the ports on the left side of the camera when the bracket is mounted. However, they seem to not realize that this bracket has a slotted design for side port access. The bracket can be re-positioned on the horizontal access to allow easy access to the ports while maintaining a secure and stable fit with the camera body. The attached photos show the bracket in the flush and slide position (with USB cable attached).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable Fit Good - Works Great Love this bracket. I mostly disagree with any poor fit comments. You can position cables to minimize stress. Even so, I think the USB cable is stressed a bit but nothing likely to harm it even if you center your camera for landscape or model shots in portrait position. It could have been made to fit just slightly better but it's near perfect. Keep in mind that it's adjustable. It also feels sturdier than it looks. But I don't understand why manufacturers get so much money for all brands of CNC-milled brackets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will be buying this brand from now on. I useually by the RRS L bracket, but for about $45 less i purchased this one which is just as good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits well, only minor concerns This L-bracket fits my Canon 5D Mark IV perfectly. After reading other reviews and seeing that the plate appeared to have a sliding slot that the attaching screw went through I was a little concerned about the fit and whether it would damage my camera. There was not a problem and all the ports are accessible. It works well. The only glitch I have seen is that with the direction of the remote release port on the 5D IV, you have to move the camera in the head catch in the portrait mode or the remote release will hit the head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent L-bracket For the Canon 5D Mark IV The Kirk L-bracket for the 5D Mark IV has a lower profile than the Kirk L-bracket for the 5D mark III. When mounted to the 5D IV, it fits better in camera bags with tight pockets. The cable release port on the front of the canon 5D mark IV is easily accessible with this L-bracket in place. Great Product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have already recommended it to my photo friends. I have been using a kirk L-bracket for the Canon 6D for a few years and depend on it. The design of the new bracket for the 5D Mark IV is even better. It is truely form fitting. The slimmer design on the end of the camera body makes it much less obtrusive when hand holding, while providing good access to the camera's connectors. It was one of the first purchases after getting my new camera body. It also works very well with my had strap.
