Really Right Stuff BGE20-L Overview

Dedicated to the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with BG-E20 Battery Grip, the BGE20-L Set L-Plate from Really Right Stuff is an Arca-type compatible plate that facilitates easier, more stable switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations when working atop a tripod. The L-shape of the plate also benefits shooting in vertical orientation with panorama nodal slides, for maintaining a consistent nodal point, and shooting in horizontal orientation with side-mount gimbal heads. Two push-button QD sockets are available as well, allowing the direct use of compatible Quick Disconnect straps.

This plate set features a modular two-piece design that includes both the dedicated base plate and an L-component, which combine to form a dedicated L-plate. This versatile configuration offers the same support as a one-piece L-plate, with the added ability to remove the L-component for a slimmer overall profile when needed. The custom-fit design also maintains full access to the battery and built-in magnetic tool storage makes it easy to remove or attach your plate when needed, while a boss is available for using an accessory hand strap. Additionally, the CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum construction is finished with a Type II black anodizing, a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting socket is featured on the base, and laser-engraved center marks are placed on both axes for easy alignment.

Was Skeptical of Two Piece L-Plate

I have used many RRS and Kirk L-Plates. This the first two piece model I have had. I am very pleased. If not shooting portrait it is easy to remove the vertical piece of the bracket and save some weight. It has the usual RRS high build quality. Perfect fit on the BG-20. Battery tray and connection points are fully accessible. Storage of hex wrench on the plate is very clever.

Love this l-Plate. Extremely solid, fits the Mark IV perfectly. Gives me very strong confidence in combination with my recently purchased Arca Swiss Cube geared head.

I'm a man and I don't read directions, so I had a really hard time trying to wrap the RRS BGE20-L around my Canon 5D MKIV. Silly me. Once I realized that I had to remove the screw for the little camera strap slot holder thing on the side, it all came together. Essentially, this thing is SOLID. It's not going anywhere. Most appreciated is the fact I can leave it on 100% of the time and it doesn't get in the way. +80 for stability. -20 for weight. Overall, I really couldn't be happier. My only complaints would be price (money's not really worth what it used to be worth anyway) and the lack of a sliding lock when using a RRS B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (maybe it can though and it's just me, like I said, I don't read directions.)

RRS Best Quality Out There

Really Right Stuff knows how to make great equipment and this L Plate is no exception. Terrific attention to detail and the quality is top of the line. The bracket does require an allen wrench to install and remove though but the great new feature with the 5D Mk IV L Plate vs the 5D Mk III L Plate is that the Mk IV L Plate has an allen key mounted right to the L Plate. Held in place with a tiny magnet it stows on the bottom of the L Plate. I would have liked to see a cut out or indent near the USB port though so that cables could route without having to bend 90 degrees and also make it difficult or near impossible to mount the camera vertically without removing the USB cable. I use a CamRanger 2 and having the USB port inaccessible for vertical shots is a big disappointment. RRS used to have such a cut out or indent in the Mk III L Plate and it was perfect for routing the cable out of the way. I suppose you could route the cable out of the side of the L Plate but I'll need to find a skinnier cable to do so as the one that comes with the CamRanger 2 is quite thick and hefty.

Worth every penny and MORE (I am a very frugal person)

I usually do not write reviews. But I was very satisfied with this product. Before the purchase- Why should I pay 250!!! dollars for an L-plate? There are other products out there for far less! After the purchase- It all makes sense now. This plate is machined to extreme precision. One of the biggest concerns I had before I purchased this product was the possibility of scratches (plate rubbing against the body). This plate is designed so that it leaves just enough gap between the plate and the body to prevent any scratches. Even if you tighten all the way there will be the tiny bit of space between that will save your camera from scratches. If you have a budget large enough for a 5D Mark IV and a battery grip, you should be willing to spend money on this L-plate. I have read far too many reviews from those who purchased lower-quality and cheaper plates that end up scratching your precious camera.

B&H and Really Right Stuff. Can't possibly go wrong.

Purchased the L-Plate for a previous camera body and loved the construction, fit and convenience. This plate was no different. Another excellent product purchased through B&H.

Pricey but worth it.

question

Will this base plate work just for the 5D 4 body only without the battery grip? In other words, can it be used both with and without the battery grip?
Asked by: Timothy
No. You will need a plate for each configuration.

question

Does the allen key for the clamp at the top (where it clamps onto the cameras side strap loop) share the same allen key size as the bottom allen key? Ie, uses the same allen key as is attached to the grip?I have the Kirk version and you still need to carry around another allen key size as it isn't attached to the bracket, which makes the supplied allen key a waste of time.
Asked by: paul
Yes, it only needs the single Allen key provided.
