L plate for Nikon D500
Leofoto LPN-D500 L-plate for Nikon D500
For the Nikon D500 dslr camera Leofoto has designed a robust L-plate that provides maximum support. The Leofoto LPN-D500 L-plate for the Nikon D500 supports the entire bottom plate of the camera and, thanks to the thickening under the handle, offers extra protection against bumps when you use the camera. The individual parts are all CNC-machined from a single piece of aluminium and anodised black for high durability.
Nikon L-plate with Arca-Swiss coupling
Leofoto has the LPN-D500 provided with beveled edges over the entire length of the base plate and grooves in the L-plate. This makes this L-plate Arca-Swiss compatible with both horizontal and vertical use. The L-plate measures 103mm x 50mm x 86mm and weighs 110 grams. Although this L-plate is lightweight, it is very strong. The base plate and the L-plate are connected by means of a robust hexagonal screw. You can change batteries when the L-plate is mounted under your D500 as Leofoto has provided openings for access to the battery door and cable ports.
An L-plate 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-plate, 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.
