The Universal L-Bracket (Monoball Fix) 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 Monoball Fix 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 Monoball Fix plates and clamps.
