L Bracket K-3, K3 Mk.II, K5, K5 MkII, K5 Mk.IIs.or K-7 (Reduced from $75) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
L Bracket (Really Right Stuff): K-3, K3 Mk.II, or K-7 (reduced from $75)

Asking Price
49.00 USD

Item Location
Coquitlam (Canada)

Item Description
This Really Right Stuff L bracket for Arca-Swiss quick release systems that fits both the K-3 and K-7 bodies (without the battery grip installed). This allows the camera body to be flipped from horizontal to vertical orientation without changing or moving the tripod head. If you have never used one it is incredibly easy to precisely reframe an image from landscape to portrait without fiddling with the tripod head.

This is actually the Really Right Stuff Model BK7-L for the K-7, but with a tiny modification as noted in the picture with the blue arrow it fits the K-3 bodies very nicely. This is not universal bracket but is custom fitted to the body so that it will not twist when mounted and everything is accessible.

An important additional advantage of this particular bracket is that there is a strap attachment on the bracket which allows the camera strap attachments to be both located on the same side of the camera body. A decided advantage for tripod mounting as it keeps the strap out of the way and the body actually hangs better when shoulder carrying.

Hey oneil,

Even with the modification, I'm pretty certain this bracket also fits the K5, K5II and K5IIs.

I compared my Really Right Stuff "L" brackets for K5 and K3II and I'd bet a tall lemonade your modified bracket now fits both body styles...

Fantastic bracket (each direction Arca fitting can slide in fore/aft or side-to-side giving 4 axis of mounting). Surprised it's still available!

Thanks for the tip on the Helicoid Extension Tube oneill. It's fun and functional.
