p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Need an L plate for a camera that is not available


Never had an L plate before i bought my A7r. Sold the A7r recently and picked up a Contax RX SLR. I can't go back to not having an L plate.

RRS understandably doesn't have an L plate for this camera. However they do have them for a 1-series. This obviously isn't going to be a perfect fit, nor will it be ideal.

So my question: is there a universal L plate on the market? The RX measures roughly 6" long and 1.5" wide on the base. So something in this neighbor hood. Doesn't have to be RRS brand.

long shot, but thought i would ask. A universal plate would work as well. Would prefer a name brand plate as my Sirui plate always loosens up....

search on EBay - I have seen generic L plates around
Better quality and higher pricing:

Many such items on Amazon. Most of the far east imports are under $50. I have one on Sigma Merrill which works just fine.

Try 3 legged thing - they do a universal plate - very well made. No idea about the camera you mention or if it would fit.

thanks for the suggestions! When i look on eBay, a lot of the L plates are much shorter than my camera. Will have to see the dimensions of the 1 series Canon or similar larger cameras to see if they are at least the same length.

Sunwayfoto DPL-06R is a good universal L plate. I use it on a borrowed Nikon D800 and it's fine. And if I remember not that expensive.

ProMediaGear are currently selling the PBX3 universal base plate on their web site but apparently not the L bracket plug-in to the PBX3. The B&H link above shows the two joined parts as "currently unavailable". I use their PX3 plate; it's good quality.

thanks for the help! The ones linked at B&H are too short, as my Contax RX is just under 6" long. I will look at the sunwayfoto ones as well. I am sure there is one out there

**EDIT**
i'm an idiot as i didn't realize that the L plate doesn't "need" to go across the whole length of the camera. I was looking at the RRS 1 series Canon versions, and they only go across half the base of the camera....

RRS used to have a generic L bracket but it does seem to be on their site. You might want to call them.
