Kirk BL-6DII overview

  • 1Description

The L-Bracket for Canon 6D Mark II from Kirk Enterprises is designed to custom fit the camera, and with its Arca-type compatible dovetail, it enables the camera to mount in a vertical or horizontal position when shooting together with a tripod and compatible head. The L-bracket's side port access is slotted on the bottom, which enables the bracket to swing and pivot away for greater access to the camera's ports.

The black anodized 6061-T6 aluminum L-bracket has a slotted design for side port access. At the same time, the bracket does not interfere with the movements of the LCD screen. The plate also provides access to the battery door, and a loop has been machined to the side of the plate for a hand or shoulder strap.

The included Allen wrench is used to tighten the L-bracket to the body. When it is not in use, it stores inside the bottom of the L-bracket's base. Furthermore, a 1/4"-20 mounting hole is located on the bottom and sensor centering lines are on the back, so the camera can be aligned on a tripod head.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just know what it will do. This L-bracket is manufactured very well, but I am sure the designers were pulling their hair out with the problem areas. It is very stable on the bottom of the camera. There are some issues, that would have been less of an issue if the 6DII cable insert area been designed a bit differently. Everything is great if you never have to move the articulating arm, which is necessary to rotate the view screen to look up or down on it as you would with the camera near the ground or overhead. To get around this, you can look sideways on the view screen, keeping it behind the camera. The vertical arm articulates so you can move it forward to accommodate for this. The problem with this is that it then impinges on any cable release, so count on your cable release to not last as long. In order to use the articulating feature, you must loosen a 5/32 Allen screw, which means having the Allen wrench available. While you can leave the screw slightly loose (at least initially), this keeps you from using your camera in the vertical position unless you tighten the screw back down to do this. There isn't any other sort of locking mechanism to accomplish this. The best solution for me is to use the "L" section in the fully extended position, but this can be inconvenient in your camera bag. Kirk conveniently put a holder for the necessary Allen wrench in the bottom of the bracket. With some effort you can extract the wrench, but I haven't found a way to get it back in, so I will continue losing Allen wrenches at a record pace. There is a video on the Kirk website that will help you understand the articulation part.
