Canon M5 Modular Plates

SKU (ST) BCM5 Base Plate


Really Right Stuff camera body plates are all custom-designed for each camera body, and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with 1.5" RRS Dovetail Standard, our plates feature precisely contoured anti-twist flanges for a perfect fit that prevents twisting between the camera and our plate. 

All of our quick-release plates utilize a custom machined 1/4"-20 threaded, captive-style mounting screw that threads into the tripod mounting socket of your camera body. RRS camera L-Plates feature two dovetail mounting surfaces in the shape of an L; one on the bottom of your camera, and one on the left-hand side. This additional mounting option allows you to quickly change between landscape and portrait orientations while minimizing the need to recompose your shot, saving you time and hassle. 

An L-Plate keeps your gear centered directly above the tripod's apex, which helps maintain the best stability possible. RRS modular L-Plates are made from two separate components: a conventional base plate, and a dedicated vertical L-Component that mounts on the left-hand side of the base plate. This modular approach offers the flexibility of allowing the photographer to remove the L-Component for a slimmer profile or when maximum access to the side ports is needed.
