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. Also, an L-Plate keeps your gear centered directly above the tripod's apex which helps maintain the best stability possible.
RRS modular L-Plate systems have all of the same advantages of our amazing L-Plates, but are made from three different components:
1. Conventional base plate
2. Dedicated vertical L-Component that mounts on the left-hand side of the base plate
3. Custom grip that mounts on the right-hand side, significantly improving the handling performance of small camera systems.
The modular approach offers much greater flexibility, allowing the photographer to remove the added components for a slimmer profile, or when maximum access to the side ports is needed.
