L plate for Canon 5DIII with battery grip
Leofoto LPC-5DIIIB L-Plate for Canon 5DIII with battery grip
The Leofoto LPC-5DIIIB L-Plate for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera with mounted battery grip is extremely strong yet lightweight. The base plate and the L-piece are CNC machined from a single piece of aluminium and anodised black for high durability. Leofoto has provided the LPC-5DIIIB with V-shaped grooves which makes this L-Piece Arca-Swiss compatible for both horizontal and vertical use. The L-plate measures 117mm x 85mm x 136mm and weighs only 153 grams. You can still change batteries when the L-plate is mounted under your Canon EOS 5D mark III, as Leofoto has provided openings in the L-plate for access to the battery door and any cable ports.
An L-Bracket for ease of use
An L-plate or L-bracket can maximize the stability and ease of use of your camera on a ballhead when changing from a horizontal (landscape) to a vertical (portrait) shooting position. Thanks to the L-bracket, the optical axis of the lens is always positioned directly over the centre of the ball when shooting portraits, and the camera weight also presses directly on the central axis of the ballhead. The Arca-Swiss quick-release coupling also allows you to shift the camera on the ballhead for perfect positioning in relation to the subject. Leofoto supplies specially adapted L-plates for specific camera models, both for DSLR cameras and for compact system cameras and digital compact cameras. As soon as new cameras appear on the market, Leofoto designs a new L plate for that special camera model.
