I just received my SUNWAYFOTO PCLO-R5 L-Bracket for Canon Eos R5/R6.

It works great. Contrary to reports, you can fold the articulated screen completely forward while mounted.

However, when the camera is mounted vertically, there's not enough space between the side of the bracket and the camera body to fold away the usb and HDMI cables. Seems odd that they make such a big deal of the fact that it's got the opening for the cables but that you cannot use the main function of the L bracket with the cables plugged in.

Am I missing something?

It seems that I would need one of the sides to extend 1.5" past the bottom of the camera to make it work. I don't suppose anyone makes something like that?

Seems like on the R6 it would be better to have the side bracket on the grip side of the camera but then you'd have to have the bottom open for the battery compartment.

looks like the smallrig one will work.

The bracket extends .9 inches beyond the side of the body. Now sure how sturdy that would be when extended though.

After fooling around with the Sunwayfoto bracket, it also allows you to extend it about an inch but there is no opening for the cables to escape through the bottom like the small rig which means you'd have to bend them at a right angle. I could find usbc and microhdmi cables that bend toward the back of the camera but then they would interfere with the articulated screen facing forward.
