p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · RRS L Bracket for E-M1 Mk11?


New cam on the way to my house. I almost always like an L bracket. It seems the vertical piece can interfere with the full range of motion of the LCD. The RRS vertical piece at least can be removed and I think moved away a bit to allow for more LCD movement. I am unsure of how much inference with the full LCD movement the vertical piece causes. I am wondering whether to get it or just the base piece. Appreciate any comments.

I got the base plate only because the $100 vertical plate is expensive - relative to the base plate.

When shooting verticals (which I don't do very often on a tripod) I would just flip the camera sideways on the ballhead.

One nice touch by Olympus is that they place the remote port/connector on the opposite side of the camera - separate from all the other ports.

I wonder why it's taking so long for the generic L-plates to hit the market.

I got the RRS L-bracket. I still like to turn the camera itself to change the orientation. YMMV.

I too have the RRS L-bracket, and normally leave the "L" part off (only using it when shooting pano's).

Appreciate the comments. How badly does the vertical piece interfere? I have read some vertical pieces on rrs L brackets can just be moved out a bit w/o removing to allow more freedom of movement. Would be a pain to remove and reattach repeatedly, I think. Thanks.

What do you mean by "freedom of movement"? What are you wanting to move?

The tiltable swivel LCD screen range of motion is reportedly reduced. Thanks.

Yes, it does limit the movement a somewhat, but in vertical orientation the slot in the L bracket helps. Go to the RRS website and click on the photos. If you scroll sideways thru them there are photos of the screen in various positions with the L bracket in place and also pulled out to the side to give more room.

Here's a photo showing how far you can open the lcd screen with the RRS L-bracket in place. There is a hex key held in place by magnets that allows for quick removal of the side plate if needed.
