Key Features

Dedicated to the Leica SL (Typ 601) mirrorless camera, this L-Plate Set 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.

Really Right Stuff BSL L-PLATE SET Overview

Dedicated to the Leica SL (Typ 601) mirrorless camera, this L-Plate Set 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.

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, or to slide the L-component to the side for easier access to the camera's side ports. The custom-fit design also maintains full access to the battery door and features two Quick Disconnect (QD) mounting system points for attaching a 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, the included hex key can be magnetically stored on the plate's base, and laser-engraved center marks are placed on both axes for easy alignment.

Excellent addition to the Leica SL

This is a great addition to the SL since it makes it easy to mount to a arca swiss tripod both horizontally and vertically. Also has a QD socket to easily attach/detach the QD compatible strap

Perfect fit

This L-Plate fits to Leica SL perfectly.� It almost like a build-in to the camera once putting it on.

An example of excellent design and workmanship

I bought this product to serve two purposes: The first was to attach to my Leica SL to allow quickly switching from landscape to portrait while on a tripod, and also to get a plate for P0 ( the plate choices for the SL are limited at best). The fit and finish are top notch and it definitely looks like an OEM accessory. My only gripe would be that I have to loosen both the screw to the plate and the one that secures the vertical section to slide out when needed ,but with the onboard magnetically attached hex key it is a breeze. It adds much needed stability to the SL, especially when using the 90-280 lens, and a negligible amount of weight. Well designed and thought out product from RRS, it even includes a QD socket to attach QD slings and straps. Now, if RRS would make one for the SL and the HG SCL-4 battery grip, I would be the first in line to purchase. Overall a must buy for any SL owner.

I purchased this BSL L-plate for my Leica SL through BH. I is solid, fits securely. I comes with the wrench which magnetically attaches to the base of the plate. No problems. Amazing fast shipping to Hawaii from BH.

As of the time of this writing (Dec. 2019), RRS isn't making an L-Plate set for the Leica SL-2 (which is already in the hands of customers in the USA and elsewhere). DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS L-PLATE WILL PROPERLY FIT THE NEW LEICA SL-2? (No speculation, please. I'm interested in hearing from those who have ACTUALLY VERIFIED proper fitment of this L-Plate on the new Leica SL-2 body).
Asked by: Douglas
Due to a different design with the SL2 regarding the alignment pin, it will NOT fit. RRS will be making a new version for the SL2 that should be available mid February.

Will the Really Right Stuff L-Plate Set for the Leica SL cause any type of wear on the camera body? A phone rep at RRS said that it would inevitably mar the body over time. Anyone have any real-world experience with this? Thanks.
Asked by: Scott
The RRS L plate will not mar the body over time.
