Possible solution: L Bracket for K-3 with Grip

I ordered this L-Bracket for the K-3 plus Grip - It will be 10 days before it ships, back-ordered, and then shipment from China could be awhile. Not that expensive with shipping included in the $98 price.

I will post results of how it fits. It does have a plate where the grip mounts that allows a tight fit against a curved edge. The key is if the battery door on the grip is accessible.

GLA-01 Universal Quick Release L-Plate w/ Grip - DSLR Hunter

On another note, after being on back-order for about 6 weeks the grip is finally shipping from B&H - I am hoping the long delay means this one will work with no power on issues - wishful thinking?

It was on back-order. I was told it will ship this week. Once it arrives I will post pictures. I hope it fits good since I use the K-5 w/grip for HDR panoramas to cut down battery changes and have a HDR pano I've been holding off shooting with the K-3 until this arrives.

Sorry to report -- This bracket did not fit the K-3 with Grip. The distance from the end vertical plate to the screw is 12mm short of the tripod hole in the grip. Since the Pentax K-3 is a small DSLR I doubt that this L-Bracket can fit many DSLR cameras.
