The Really Right Stuff B5DS-L Set utilizes complex 3D machining for excellent surface area contact across the entire mounting face, ensuring a truly outstanding fit. In order to maximize rigidity when the vertical component is slid away from the body and maintain the best interface with the base, we utilized our patented 2-piece modular design L-plate.
The B5DS-L Set also utilizes a custom designed, free-floating cable strap anchor that securely fixes the vertical L-Component to the camera body without negatively impacting the L-Plate's parallel alignment to the image sensor. The unique split-body design allows the cable anchor to slightly expand creating a better fit and better securing the L-Plate to the camera body without introducing uneven stress.
RRS 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-Plates have all of the same advantages of our amazing L-Plates, but 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 added L-Component for a slimmer profile, or when maximum access to the side ports is needed.
