Really Right Stuff B5DS-L Overview

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 Reviews

Fits like a glove

The Really Right L bracket fits my 5DSR like a glove, and it feels like it part of the camera. It is so easy to attach to the ball head and flip from portrait to landscape. It was a little tricky to get on but not bad. I also really like modular construction so that I can use only the base plate if needed.

It really is the right stuff

I recently purchased this L-plate for my 5D S. The fit and finish are excellent and I especially like the fact the one can remove the side plate, leaving only the base, if needed. It’s not the most inexpensive L-plate available, but it provides great value, given its quality. I own a number of items manufactured by RRS (including a high-end tripod) and the company’s excellent reputation is well-deserved.

Worth it.

I have always like RRS products but had bought other brands of L-brackets before because I thought the extra money wasn't justified for such a simple item but I was wrong. I bought this because I was setting up a new camera body and the other brand was unavailable and I am glad I got this. This is extremely well made and thoughtfully designed. I love the details like the additional strap attachment bracket and built in magnetic hex key holder. It makes the other L-brackets I own seem cheap in comparison. I highly recommend this. Another thing about RRS is their customer service is amazing (I have contacted them for other items, not this bracket.)

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.

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.

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.

Really convenient to use. Once tripod is leveled, switching between landscape & portrait orientation is quick.

The Best

No matter if it's a ball head, tripod, or this angle bracket, Really Right Stuff makes the best. It fits the 5D well, all the access points for the body are accommodated. The hex wrench is held securely by a magnet in its own slot. There are no sharp edges and the camera is secure. Wonderful product.

No, it is only for the 5DS & 5DSR. I don't see an RRS L bracket for the 5D3 body. There is an L bracket for the 5D3 made by Sunwayfoto, click the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/38JYYmf

question

Will the shutter release cable fit with this bracket installed?
Asked by: Bruce E
I dont know because I use the Leica phone app for remote control of the camera. There is enough clearance to just open the side door and view the ports so I guess it will fit.

question

Any reason to choose this over the cheaper Sunwayfoto 5DS L-bracket?
Asked by: Mark
I dont have any experience with Sunwayfotos L-bracket but after using the RRS version for over a year, I can say that they make some of the most reliable products in the industry. The bracket is solid and holds up to abuse extremely well. It feels almost indestructible and fits the 5D Mark IV perfectly. I understand that the price is a hard swallow but you get what you paid for couldnt be more true with their products. I was hesitant to purchase this at first because of the price but Im glad that I did.
