Really Right Stuff BMBD18-L Overview

The L-Plate Set for Nikon D850 with MB-D18 Battery Grip from Really Right Stuff is a modular design composed of an Arca-type compatible base plate and L-component, which is slightly taller to accommodate the added height of the battery grip. The dovetail facilitates easier more stable switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations while working on top of a tripod.

The CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum L-plate maintains complete access to the battery door, the camera's ports, and no obstruction of the camera's LCD monitor. Both parts can be separated slightly, and retightened if more room is needed for your tethering cable or cable release. The L-plate has a durable Type II anodized finish, and the plate has laser-engraved center marks on the back to align it on a tripod head. There is an additional QD socket on the plate for the Quick Disconnect strap system, and machined bosses are located at each end of the L-plate for a hand or shoulder strap. Addotionally, a hex key is included and stores on the top inside of the base plate.

RRS L-Plate set for D850

I know this set adds weight and is bulkier than going without it, but I love the look and feel of it and it was what I imagined for my D850 before I bought it, and the fact that I can add a quick release Mapgul sling to it it great.

When I pulled this out of the package I thought, Jeezzz this thing is huge, but once I mounted it on the camera/battery grip the size and fit were perfect and I had opted for this rig, due to the quick detach points for a sling as well as being Arca Swiss compatible rails. Love it!

Excellent L Bracket

I love how they included a mount for the hex key. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the bottom quick release port can be a pain to connect. The side port is perfect.

Works as described!

Needed this to fit with the battery grip on my Nikon for Astro work. I use a remote battery and dummy in the grip for all night long star trails efforts. The L-plate is very solid on the camera - even without using the secondary connection where the neck strap attaches. There is a thoughtful cut away at that point so you can leave the std Nikon clip on and not interfere with pushing the upright side close to the body. Having the upright part of the L adjustable for distance from the body is a great aid when connecting HDMI, USB, etc cables for video output to something like an Atomos or tethered capture in a studio setting. Having storage for hex wrenches in the bottom of the plate is a nice touch. Just wish it wasn't so expensive, but, buy once, cry once seems to apply here.

light-weight, precision-made, fits like a glove. allows access to all ports. paired with a RRS tripod head, provides rock solid, fast vertical and horizontal mounting. performs as advertised. we own at least 10 RRS mounting plates of various configurations. they are worth every penny.

Not for my purposes.

Everything from RRS is wonderful. Solid build. It's going to outlast the camera and mankind. Awesome if you're shooting on a tripod and shooting to card. Useless if you're shooting on a tripod and tethered, because L position won't let you mount to a tripod and have access to the cables. It hugs the camera too tight. Maybe if there was a little more clearance for a right angle tether. If you ever mount your camera overhead using a magic platform on a boom stand, the screw hole for that connection is far off center, so camera weight is not evenly distributed and tilts constantly. I had to go back to my original RRS plate w/o the L.

question

There are two models of L-bracket plates, one for the battery grip and one without it... will the model *for* the grip fit on a D850 that does *not* have the grip (and not be too weird looking / oversized?) I'm trying to only buy one bracket .. i dont have the D850 grip yet (might be a while).
Asked by: Brad
The bracket made for use with the camera and grip might fit, but it may not fit properly because it has been designed and machined for the grip only. The openings and connections will all be off and may get in the way of using your camera if it is not used properly, with or without the grip.

question

Since this is an Arca Swiss compatible, does it mean that i can use this L-Plate with other Arca Swiss ball head such as the 3 Legged Thing Airhed 360?
Asked by: Khajak K.
Arca Swiss is not an international standard so we cannot guarantee performance of this combination. However can offer some observations. Most likely you will be fine since the 3 Legged Thing has a screw clamp: it is the lever clamp that sometimes in the past has caused problems. In the end the answer will be you testing the set-up. If it is good and solid and you like it; you are good to go. If not, do not use it.

what strap is attatched to the L plate in the pictures of this L plate? I cant find one that looks like it on the site.
Asked by: Paul
The strap on the camera in the picture is the KIMAGMS4STRP. You can also get others made by companies like BlackRapid and Spider that have a similar fastening system as well.
