fits perfect, nice quality

Well designed and built but extremely over-priced

I needed am L-bracket for a D780 and this was the only one I could find. It is very well dedigned with front and rear registers to hold it securely on the camera and an offset side plate to fully expose the side ports. But really, that's a lot of money even for a quality product.

My 5th Kirk L-bracket.

With each new camera I get a Kirk L-bracket. The newest ones are a little more refined than my first couple but all have been beautifully crafted. I especially appreciate that the provided Allen wrench can be stored securely on the underside of the bracket; no more searching for one. The bracket fits the camera it's designed for very securely.

Kirk vs RRS Nikon D780 L-Bracket

By John

Both L-brackets are thoughtfully designed, beautifully machined and hold the camera very securely. The Kirk bracket is a one piece design that has registration lips that grab both the front and back of the camera. The bracket weighs 125gm and has machined notches indicating the lens centerline. The RRS bracket is a two piece design that has a single registration lip that grabs the rear of the camera. The baseplate and L-bracket pieces are securely attached by a pair of registration pins and a single screw. The complete bracket weighs 97gm and has laser engraved centerline markings that can be hard to see. The big difference between the brackets is how they provide for access to the electrical connectors on the side of the camera. The RRS bracket keeps the horizontal and vertical dovetails in the same plane, somewhat compromising access to the connectors. The Kirk bracket moves the vertical dovetail ~10mm to the rear, significantly improving access to the connectors. The downside of this arrangement is when using a focusing rail for macro or panorama work - switching between landscape and portrait orientations requires you to adjust the position of the camera.

Does what it's designed to do.

Very sturdy construction. I like the storage of the allen wrench on the bottom. Nothing super fancy, just works.

I have a Peak Design Tripod. Does the Kirk BL-780 bracket fit in nice and tight without removing the two safety pins on the ball head?
Asked by: J.H. JOHN
Due to the configuration of the bottom of the Kirk BL-D780, it is unlikely that the default head of the Peak Design travel tripod will work with both of the safety stop screws still intact. I'd recommend removing both as they serve a diminished purpose when used with L-brackets larger than the width of the PDTT's arca-clamp.
