Arca-Swiss 802306 overview

  • 1Description

The Arca-Swiss L-Bracket is a universal L-shaped bracket that allows you to mount a DSLR or medium-format camera to a head in portrait orientation. One segment of the bracket features a 1/4"-20 screw to which to mount your camera, and both this part and the segment perpendicular feature an Arca-Swiss plate at bottom for mounting to a head.

The two Arca-Swiss plates are adjustable, as they slide on rails and lock in position via a lever. In moments, the plate and the attached camera can slide completely off the rails for a quick change to handheld operation.

The Arca-Swiss plates perfectly fit Arca-Swiss Quickset Classic quick-release systems, and they also fit most other Arca-Swiss-style clamps. The L-Bracket also features a 3/8"-16 thread.

Arca-Swiss 802306 reviews

L-Bracket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome L bracket from Arca Swiss With this L bracket from Arca Swiss, it's fit on to my Nikon D600 WITH or WITHOUT the (md14 battery grip). In my case, I did not have the md14, I have the aftermarket grip from Phottix bg-d600. Most custom grips are made for original manufacture camera grips. This bracket has both vertical and horizontal quick release, very easy and quick to access camera electronic ports and battery compartment. Also fit on to my older film camera without any problem. It's is a little heavier than the custom fit L brackets that RRS sell. However, with it ease if use and hopefully I won't have to buy another L bracket when upgrade to another camera, I don't mind it weigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy ! I was looking for a sturdy solution which allows me to use a classic Hasselblad V in portrait orientation on my arca style tripod accessories. And I found it! This bracket has a substantial weight and promises to take a lot load and abuse. It is very well crafted and gives an amazing impression. Mounted on a camera and / or tripod it gives a strong hold for any attached equipment.And it is universal. Both plates on the L-bracket can be slid and finally fixed/clamped in their proper positions.And yes, it cannot compete with all those custom made brackets from its 'decoration' factor, but for its function and craft factor it shines. And it is future safe, i.e. will survive many cameras to come....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong well built L-bracket I looked at bracket by competitors, but this won hands down. The competing brands require a different bracket for every model of camera you own. I would need a bracket for my D800, D800 with battery pack, D4, D3. The Arca Swiss bracket fits all my cameras, as well as any other brand. That's a huge savings. It's solid and well built. Comments about the weight had me concerned, but when it arrived I simply did not find this to be true. We're talking a 4oz difference from the competitor, but I would need 4 of those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting design, very well made Peter's product reviews (obtained from the great folks at B&H Photo Video) A very well made L bracket from Arca-swiss, really simplifies switching camera to horizontal / vertical orientation while still keeping lens axis directly over the ballhead. Design allows it to be spaced so as to allow wires to pass through it easily and the new adjustable design means it will fit any body. A bit more expensive than most but it means you should not need to buy further L brackets for any bodies you may acquire in the future. Unless you really want to have one on each body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-made and fits everything This product is exactly what I wanted: A solid, stable L-bracket that fits all my current and future camera bodies. As expected, it is heavier than a camera-specific bracket. It's very well made, with the adjustable plates mounted on two heavy-duty rails. There are quick release levers to adjust position of the 2 plates which lock very solidly. An allen wrench (included) is required to install/remove it from the camera - some of my Arca-compatible plates can work with a screwdriver or coin which is more convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & well crafted Reservations about the strength of the A/C L Bracket dissolved after I received it from B&H. At the heavy end I am using mine to support the 1DX and with heavy lenses' such as the 1.2 85mm and 24mm tilt shift - the bracket holds the rig firmly. The adjustable plates enable balance, flexibility and easy access to cables to & from the camera. Well made in the Arca Swiss tradition it is the product of innovative & thoughtful design. No more 'body specific' L brackets - this 'Classic' model fits across my current line of DSLRs and legacy 35mm film & point & shoot digital cameras. I use this L bracket variously on each of three field use Gitzo's and on the end a 9' Cambo USB stand. I recommend this bracket to 'all' DSLR owners and suggest you get you name engraved on it 'cos it will be with you a long, long time...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Made, But----------- This is basically a great design and very well made. However, it didn't work for me. The rubber on the camera platform has a very fine texture and is almost flush with the metal making it a little slippery. I was unable to get my plastic bodied camera to hold tight (not twist) without fear of over tightening and damaging the tripod socket. I'm sure it would work fine with a metal bodied camera. Thicker rubber with a more aggressive texture would have cured the problem, but at this price I wasn't in the mood to make modifications so I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My right choice! Before making a decision, I took much time to compare between the Arca-Swiss L-Bracket and the Slidefix mini L-Bracket.I chose the classic one. The main reason is that the classic camera plate is parallel to the camera and the quick release clamp. However, the Slidefix camera plate of the mini L-Bracket is vertical to the camera and the clamp. I think parallel mounting is sturdier than vertical.It fits my M9P and DSLRs.I think the solid metal body is durable for life long.The detachable vertical arm is very useful when need to handheld the camera. I had made a right choice.
