Really Right Stuff B5DS-L SET Overview

  • 1Description

Dedicated to the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R, the B5DS-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. This plate is designed for maximum usability as it has a notched cutout for the shutter release cable.

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.

    Really Right Stuff B5DS-L SET Reviews

    B5DS-L Set L-Plate for Canon 5DS & 5DS R is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear Beautifully designed and executed piece of gear (I'm an aerospace Mfg. Engineer, VERY picky about stuff).? Machining, anodizing, finishing, and fitup to the camera are all excellent.? Design is well thought-out.? A really nice feature is the strap attachment fitting, which interfaces with the camera's strap attachment via 2 small prongs.? Use care when assembling this item to the camera and tightening the screw - be sure everything has slipped into place before final-tightening the screw.? I leave my L-Bracket on the camera full-time, with no particular interference with ergonomics.? Access to the rubber flaps for electrical connections is OK, and the cable-release comes out through the little notch in just the right position.? This item, plus an M55 ballhead, are my first intro to RRS gear.? I'm highly impressed.? Definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camera security and ease of use This L plate mated to the RRS lever connect system is simple fast and very secure.My old unit would hold partially fooling me and fall off.That won't happen with this system.The plate fits like a glove.RRS is not cheap but I thought if it saves as lens it would pay for it's self.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RRS L set for 5DS R camera body My other base plates were like a universal plate that fits several cameras which makes them cheaper than the RRS plates. Some were proprietary in design, not Arca. if the plate came loose then it would either shift on the base or turn and not be parallel with the base of the camera. I always worried about the screw coming loose and was always taking ahold of the base to see if it came loose. The RSS plates are machined for the camera body that will not turn on the base, hence some of the reasoning for the higher price. Machining is very solid once you hold the RSS plate you can definitely tell the difference just in the feel and appearance. The L plate fits directly to the base plate and has the same solid feel and appearance, it also hooks to the camera body at the strap points on the camera and slides into the machined base plate, attaches with a separate screw that goes into the base plate not the camera, so unless the screw is removed it will not slide out, also with this design you are not removing the base plate screw so you have less chance of striping the threads in the camera body. The L, and base plates have Center marks marked in the plate to match with the tripod head, this helps to center the camera on the tripod consistently every time. The plate modular design is well thought out the two piece design makes it easy to remove the L plate with a single screw and have just the base piece if you want to just hand hold the camera. The plates also have a loop for to attach a hand strap, the removal tool attaches via magnet to the base piece so that you have it when you need it. (when I am not using the L plate I put the wrench in my bag with the L plate I have never had it come out just my preference) In all this is a very well thought out piece of equipment that fits Arca tri pod heads. As far as price I found some L plates for less and some for more this set was about in the middle as far as cost

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Several flies in this ointment I've been using RRS gear for over ten years, and always been happy with the quality, design and implementation of the tripod heads and Arca-style plates. When I finally bit the bullet on the 5DS R, I first tried the L-plate for the OEM battery grip (BG-E11). Solid, well-machined, and perfect fit. But one small deal-breaker, for me. In the field, it's bulky enough to destroy the ergonomics of the battery grip, pushing your hand away from the controls in the vertical position, and thereby negating the advantage of the battery grip. I returned it to B&H and ordered the modular plate. Unfortunately, RRS does not make a one-piece L-plate for this camera, opting instead for the modular design. I find the additional parts necessary to install the vertical part of the bracket way too fiddly and prone to loss. I had to completely uninstall the strap boss attachment in order to fit the two parts together. And in order to install the base plate, the vertical part must be completely unscrewed. The top screw that attaches the two plates together is NOT captive, and so that makes three pieces that you can potentially lose in the field when putting on or taking off the system. The base plate is bomb-proof, but the addition of the modular vertical plate is somewhat problematic. Pluses of this design: On-board storage of the 5/32 hex wrench. Prior to this design, it had to be carried in the camera bag. I carry two or three of them, since I always lose them when I need them, and it's impossible to loosen or tighten the RRS plate without the proper tool. The vertical section can be shifted away from the remote/flash trigger connectors in order to accommodate the Canon-supplied USB/HDMI stiffener. All that is required is to loosen one screw and reposition the vertical section away from the camera body. Very useful function. The side of the vertical plate is notched to accommodate the Canon and third-party remote control, as are all RRS L-plates. A critical feature, especially for the 5DS R. Even without the secondary attachment point of the strap boss, this plate feels solid. And with the plate attached, I normally do not attach a camera strap, but use the RRS/Black Rapid strap attachment system for quick transition to the tripod. If the strap boss had a slightly longer screw and stayed attached, I'd give it 5 stars.
