Really Right Stuff BD500-L Overview

Dedicated to the Nikon D500 DSLR camera, the BD500-L 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.

I have an RRS L-Plates for my Nikon and Fuji cameras and lenses. RRS is a good solution but quite expensive. Still, I bought additional one for my D500.

RRS Camera plate for D500

As with all of the RRS products, this one works perfectly. I have one for my D7500 and now for my D500. My only wish is that it would be a little less pricey, but you get what you pay for. Great service by B&H.

I have an L-Plate for my D850, love it, so I bought another for my D500.

Good bracket gets even better

Like all RRS L-brackets, it's a firm fit and a sturdy support. It is easier to remove the L-extension than it was for earlier models; a single screw, which remains with the L-extension, allows removal. On models for my earlier cameras, you have to remove two deep-set machine screws that are always getting lost. This is a big improvement.

PERFECT accessories.

Sturdy. Absolutely no mechanical gap, fit perfectly. Most important, both horizontal and vertical optical centers of the lens are engraved on the plate.

One nice feature

Other brands I've used are fixed, and don't have the nice slide option that this unit offers. And to their credit, RRS supplies a 5/32 standard chrome hex wrench (used to loosen the slide) that is held in a magnetized pocket under the camera. So far I've not lost it, and I seem to loose any and all camera gear that's not screwed down. Nice added benefit is that this is the same wrench (1 of 2) you need for their tripods, and also fits my other camera's plate (Markins, not RRS).

This bracket is meant for the D500 without a battery grip installed. Using it with a battery grip would not allow the ports to line up correctly.
