Plates for Canon EOS R


The Really Right Stuff EOS R camera body plates are the premiere solution for mounting your Canon EOS R camera securely to your tripod. Our EOS R plates are custom designed and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with 105" RRS Dovetail Standard, this plate features precisely contoured edges for a perfect fit with no twisting between the camera and our plate. It utilizes a custom machined 1/4"-20 threaded, captive-style mounting screw that thread into the tripod mounting socket of your camera body. An integrated QD (Quick Detach) socket provides quick attaching and detaching of our QD strap system. The additional 1/4"-20 accessory socket gives users the flexibility to attach other devices and products as needed. 

This plate design utilizes two anti-twist pins to ensure a positive connection between the body and the plate. There is an integrated strap lug for use with hand straps. The battery compartment and all accessory ports remain fully accessible. On the one-piece L-Plate, a gap between the body and the L-portion allows the user to swing the accessory port doors out to the sides while the open-ended corner provides a space for cables to be routed while mounted on a tripod. The plate's L-portion has a cutout in the dovetail to maximize screen articulation and use. It is specifically positioned to maximize screen fold-out angle and is as low-profile as possible to minimize obstruction of the screen - all while maintaining full access to all accessory ports and providing a solid mount to your tripod. Canon's optional right-angle remote shutter release (RS-60E3) can be used while the camera is mounted in portrait orientation. Due to the wide variety of cables available on the market, tethering in portrait orientation with USB, HDMI, and audio cables may require the use of the optional RRS CRS. The L-Plate for the optional BG-E22 Battery Grip is also capable of sliding to increase tethering capabilities. 

Please choose between the conventional base plate or the L-Plate for use with the camera alone for the camera with the optional BG-E22 Battery Grip. 

*Note: The L-Plate is not compatible with Canon's included HDMI strain relief. 
**Note: Our production of EOS R's base is not perfectly perpendicular and square to the lens mount. Due to potential variances in the production process and our very small sample size, we opted to design the plate as if the camera's base was perfectly square to the lens mount. Some users may notice a slight change in framing when switching between portrait and landscape as a result of this out-of-square condition.

Because an L-plate allows the user to mount a camera in portrait orientation without needing to use the ball head drop notch, this feature is not necessary.

Can’t use tethered in portrait orientation.

by JT| 7/15/2019 6:05 pm

The L-bracket does not allow enough clearance to attach a USB-C cable to shoot in portrait orientation, with my Camranger, or tethered for all intents and purposes. I can get the cable relief spacer, but that then blocks the flip out screen when viewed from the front of the camera. I shoot real estate so I must switch between these two arrangements rather quickly, on-site. Can’t find a low enough profile USB-C cable either. Boo.

Tilt screen not fully functional with L-Bracket

Works as shown but if you want to use the backscreen for low shots be warned that you can't tilt the screen as it hits the L-Bracket. The screen can only be positioned pointing backward or forward. I am going to have to get a normal base plate so I can fully use the tilt screen.

Works great for me!

In contrast to the other reviewers, I’ve found the plate to be fully functional for me. The flip screen can be used for low angle shots by positioning it at right angles to the camera. However, I have not tried to use it with a USB C cable, so not sure about that complaint. Though not mentioned here, elsewhere I’ve seen a complaint that there’s not enough room for the remote cable. Not true...at least with Canon cables. It is a close fit and you have to be careful with the cable placement, but that’s always the case (I’ve used these plates for years with a number of cameras). As always, this RRS plate is a finely machined piece of equipment.

Why not modular?

The L-plate doesn't make the tilty flippy screen totally unusable, but it certainly gets in the way and limits the usability. I wonder why there isn't a modular option for this body, seems like the perfect solution.

There should be a modular plate option...

Understand what you're getting when you buy this. I did, but it's still a frustrating product. It's very well made and very secure. I don't mind the limited range of movement for the flip-out screen—I don't see how they could have designed it to make that aspect better.

That said, I just do not understand why they couldn't offer this as a modular plate, like they do with the EOS RP and many other cameras. Even a remote cable release with a right-angle jack protrudes further out than the L portion of the plate. I can work around it—the position of the jack is at the end of the plate, giving me a good portion of plate left to attach to my head, but using a USB C cable is for tethering out of the question. Accessing the ports with this on is frustrating because there's so little room to open the port-covers.

A modular plate would also allow users to remove the L-portion when they want full screen articulation.

A very expensive product to have such easily avoidable problems.
