The L-Plate Set for Sony Alpha NEX-5N from Really Right Stuff is a modular design composed of an Arca-type compatible base plate and L-component that facilitate easier, more stable switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations when working atop a tripod.
The L-Plate maintains complete access to the battery door and the camera's ports. Both parts can be separated slightly, and re-tightened with the included hex key if more room is needed for your tethering or cable release. Furthermore, there is no obstructing the camera's LCD monitor. Because of type II black anodizing, the plate itself is resistant to scuffs and scratches. Additionally, the plate has laser-engraved center marks on the back to align it on a tripod head.
