Kirk BL-5D3G overview

  • 1Description

The Kirk BL-5D3G L-Bracket is a lightweight tripod mount that is custom designed to snugly fit a Canon 5D Mark III, 5DS, or 5DS R camera body with a BG-E11 battery grip attached. Machined from a single piece of 6061T6 lightweight aluminum, it provides full access to the rubber side hatches, and full use of the remote switch even in the vertical format. The strap tab design clamps firmly to both the L-bracket and the strap ring on the camera to prevent any twist, flex, or movement of the bracket.

This design allows you to release, turn, and remount your camera in mere seconds, when switching from horizontal to vertical orientation and back. It is especially useful for shorter macro, wide-angle, and tilt-shift lenses.

For use with quick release tripod mount systems that use the Arca Swiss type clamp.
Designed to allow use of the Canon Remote Switch, even in vertical format.
Custom made one-piece bracket machined from lightweight 6061TG aluminum.
Allows full access to rubber side hatches.
Allows use of camera strap.

    Kirk BL-5D3G reviews

    BL-5D3G L-Bracket for Canon 5D Mark III, 5DS, and 5DS R with a BG-E11 Battery Grip is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from does not fit Vello BG-C9 for the short time I had this L Bracket.. it seem to be built strong. then I had to return it. For some of you that have the Vello BG-C9 Battery Grip for your Canon 5D mark III, this will not fit.. the Vello is to wide to sit flush on the bottom plate of the bracket. I was told when I ordered this bracket that it would fit the Vello battery grip that I already had purchased from B&H. IT DOES NOT, B&H did email me after I was on the phone getting my return label, they sent me a link for a Universal L-Bracket that should work for my set up. Sun way foto DPL-05 B&H #SUDPL05 I haven't bought this yet.. but it looks like this will be my only option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good... I'm comparing this to the RRS L-Plate. The only caveat is that the center line indicators are not very legible in low light conditions. They exists but I had to use a silver sharpie to color in the grooves so that they would be easier to see. It is also a fraction shorter on the portrait dovetail side than the RRS. Not sure if that would ever be a real issue if you really need that extra tiny fraction of space. That being the only complaint it is a solid plate and is just as good as the RRS It also adds a bit of girth when attempting to close my Kata camera bag. Not too concerned as it also acts as a impact guard. Very nice that is retains the ability to screw my black rapid strap to it. I wish there was an option in either the RRS or this Kirk version for safety stops to keep the plate from sliding out of the ballhead. I guess I'll just have to be more attentive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice L-plate This thing is great. It is strong, a good fit, a good width on the Arca-Swiss rails, and has a nice matte finish. Pretty awesome. However, the only thing about it I don't like (and this is pretty minor) is that the side of the plate makes accessing the cameras plugs a bit tedious. I can't unseat the rubberized cover with this thing on unless I use something other than my finger (I guess my finger is too thick, and I have long fingers, not fat ones). That's not really too much of a problem, since anything rigid and flat will reach in there and pop off the cover. That might just be with my camera. Anyway, that's hardly a reason not to get one of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE best one out there! I do like the RRS brackets and their quality is equal. The one great advantage of the Kirk bracket is the added screw and lug for the camear strap on the top. I don't use it for that but for the tremendous stability it adds to the bracket as it sandwiches into the lug on the camera body itself. SO very glad I chose this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an essential 5D mk III accessory This bracket is an essential accessory. The 5D mk III with a battery grip is just too heavy for most tripod shoes, this bracket evens out the weight and makes it easy to go from portrait to landscape without any loss of flexibility. The battery grip door and camera ports are accessible, and it even has a loop for the camera strap. Built tough and you can tell quality engineering went into this bracket. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kirk L bracket Great bracket for the 5D mark III with the grip attached. Very nice fit around the hand grip and camera. It stays firmly in place with camera and lens attached and mounted to ball head. Holds the weight of lens and camera very well. Wish I had bought this sooner but very happy to have it now.
