The BG1X-L L-Plate Set for Canon Powershot G1X from Really Right Stuff is a modular design composed of a base plate and an L-Component. Therefore, both parts create an L-Plate, and the L-plate can be changed while on top of a tripod, from a vertical to a horizontal position without sacrificing your center of axis.
The L-Plate maintains complete access to the battery door and the camera's ports. Both parts can be separated slightly, and retightened with the included hex key if more room is needed for your tethering or cable release. Furthermore, there is no obstructing of the camera's tilting 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.
