Hello;

I am not finding any "L" brackets that will accommodate a tall camera [body plus grip] so you may have to use your K3 without the grip for this purpose.

The CB Folding-SB Camera Bracket from Custom Brackets is designed to accommodate any camera with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded tripod mount. It has an upright grip handle with a locking shoe mount on top for an off-camera flash, video light or microphone. A foam grip affords comfort, and black anodized aluminum offers durability and makes for light weight. The bracket is compact--6.75 x 7.0 x 2.13"--and folds up into an even smaller 6.75 x 2.13 x 1.88" for easy storage. It's also maintenance-free, requiring no lubrication.

This I feel is a better option;

The Stroboframe Digital Pro-T Flash Bracket is lightweight (only 14 oz, 396.9 g), compact and fast-handling. It has a swinging flash arm which uses a height adjustment knob to keep the flash centered over the lens at distances up to 10.75" (27.3cm) for both horizontal and vertical compositions.

The top surface of the machined aluminum camera mount is covered by Stroboframe's ProGrip. This is a dense, but thin, textured rubber material that holds your camera in position and provides a solid connection thus eliminating the need for an anti-twist camera plate even when using your heavier equipment.

The Digital Pro-T is designed so that you hold the camera rather than the bracket for a more natural way of shooting. It is very popular with photojournalists and other shooters on-the-go.

Hello;

Essentially, most brackets attach to a camera's tripod socket and have a means to attach a flash or other "shoe" related accessories so in theory all brackets will work on your camera. The grip adds some height so you will want to make sure the flash clears the body.

The Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket is curved so it will work and has a second shoe. We recommend this most for camcorders where the shooter wants to use both a light and microphone.

Polaroid's Dual Folding Flash Bracket For SLR Cameras is a very basic flip bracket. My concern is because the height of the flash arm is not adjustable you may not have enough room in the horizontal position to clear the off camera cable which will be seated in the hot shoe. Also because the flash will be position at the back of the body, use of a long lens [even at the wide angle setting] may cause a shadow in your images.

The Quickshot Rotating Flash Bracket from Vello is unique in that if rotates the flash over the lens which will give you more even lighting for close ups and if used with longer lenses. Because of its design, you hold your camera as normal and not a bracket handle. Over the years, photographers who use it, love it. I personally have large hangs and I would always bang and scrape my fingers moving the flash.
