Arca-Swiss 802308.3 Overview

The Universal L-Bracket (Twist-Lock) from Arca-Swiss is an adjustable L-bracket designed to work with most DSLR, mirrorless, and compact cameras.

The primary function of any L-bracket is to allow the users to quickly and easily transition their camera from landscape to portrait orientation without having to tilt the camera head into portrait position. This function gives the user a number of advantages including no loss of height, maintaining their camera's center of gravity, and pivoting their camera from a single position in portrait orientation - a feature valued most when taking panoramic photographs.

This L-bracket has been designed specifically for universal use with most camera models and features a built-in quick release for quick mounting and dismounting. Like many L-brackets, this features Arca-type dovetail plates on both the vertical and horizontal axis - but unlike most brackets, it also features a twist-lock quick release clamp on the horizontal axis, requiring the camera to already be mounted to an Arca-type plate. This camera plate is not included with the bracket and must be purchased separately.

The bracket also features a length adjustment lock which allows the user to lengthen or shorten the bracket depending on the size of the mounted camera body. The mounting plate also features two standard safety stops, a bubble level, and is designed to work with standard Arca-type plates and clamps.

Can the clamp be turned 90 degrees from the picture shown so that the camera slides in from the side instead of back to front? Reason I'm asking is I have a Tether block quick release plate on my camera that goes the length of the camera. Thanks
Asked by: eric s.
I just received this item (not from B and H due to back order sorry). The direction of the clamp can in fact be moved 90 degrees by removing the top silver screw. This is shown on an insert that comes with the bracket. Another flexibility is that the two bottom male clamps can be used in a mono ball bracket, or at 90 degrees in a classic Arcs Swiss bracket. A really good design.
