The lightweight aluminum BL-1DX L-Bracket is compatible with Arca-Swiss-Style quick-release clamps. It mounts to your 1D X or 1D X Mark II via a standard 1/4"-20 screw.

The single piece of machined 6061T6 aluminum has been designed to preserve your access to all important camera controls, such as the rubber side hatches, the battery compartment, the remote switch (even in the vertical format), and the camera strap loop.

    Kirk BL-1DX reviews

    BL-1DX L-Bracket for Canon 1D X & 1D X Mark II is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes life easier on the field and also protects as armor Since first I have used Kirk L brackets I not only use it for the convenience it provides to quickly switch from horizontal to vertical orientation without touching the tripod head but also a protective armor. Once I had an unfortunate incident and my camera fell off from the tripod head and the L bracket saved it from receiving fetal wounds. Kirk L brackets I am using for 3 all of my canon bodies - 5D Mark 3 and 5DSR with BG-E11 battery grip and 1DX Mark 2. They are very strong yet light weight and extremely happy with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This L-Bracket was made for me. It just feels right on the tripod and balances the camera perfectly. Easier to attach to the Arca-Swiss type head. Also, the bracket fits and holds on to the Canon 1DX not allowing it to move from side to side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as any If you havent used an L-bracket before, its about time! Given that you found one youre in the market, and theyre great, well worth the price if you actually use a tripod that is.. I currently have four, one for each camera and as for Canon 1 series cameras I have used one for every model since the original 1 DS. This is my first Kirk L-bracket, previously all my plates are from RRS. This time I needed a plate that would incorporate the gps module when traveling and this one seemed like the best solution, and at the best price as well. I have used it for more than a year now, and it works perfectly. Yes the opening for all cables on the side are narrow, but really, what did you expect? Fittings are good however and my only small issue is fitting the cable release in a hurry when using the bracket with the gps module fitted, its, well you guessed it, narrow. Be aware that it makes the camera quite big, wide that is, when mounted with gps. Even a big camera bag gets small really quickly. Fits the camera perfectly, balancing is also perfect. Protects the camera well, mines taken some beating, broke a 24-70II literally in two when the camera fell flat on the back, but the camera is without a scratch (the bracket is not but hey..). Fits the RRS heads with lever-release clamp like the BH-55 LR (they warn that it might not, but it does).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised I wanted to purchase a bracket that would not mare the bottom of my new 1Dx and this product does just that, and makes it easy to switch between vertical and horizontal shooting without having to adjust the tripod height each time. This well built L-bracket allows easy access to the battery and all your other connections when mounted on the camera.
    Date published: 2012-12-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little less than I had expected The Kirk L-plates I had purchased for several other cameras all worked perfectly; this one is a little tight when trying to open the connection doors. I can get them open to attach cables only by sliding the plate a bit away from the body. Otherwise well made and sturdy.
    Date published: 2013-04-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product for all my cameras I bought one for my 7D+grip and for the 1Dx. I think that product is essential for everybody with a DSLR.
    Date published: 2013-01-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Also works with 1D X ii Curiously, B and H indicates only that it is for the 1 D x. I called, and it works with the Mark II as well. Price is substantially below Really Right stuff and unlike RRS, no transportation charge. This is one piece. RRS is two pieces, apparently for video. Since I am not into Video, not an issue. Solid. Good fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BL-1DX barcket for Canon 1D X I use kirk tripod head and this is a must have for tripod use. Very easy to change between portrait and landscape use. I let it also be installed in normal use without tripod.
