Solid and well built.

Sunwayfoto produces excellent accessories for the DSLR market and this "L" bracket is no exception.

It is just too much hassle to take off the bracket.

Blown away by this purchase... plain and simple. I am using this on a Canon 7D or a 5DmkII. Exceptional quality at a fraction the cost of the big boy vendors offering; like RSS, Acratech, Kirk, etc. Sure it doesn't look as pretty but man, I'll take the 200-300 savings at put it towards another lens or whatever! Fits like a dream, has more functionality for me in that it has multiple mounting screw sites for my Black Rapid hookup and still fits into my Acratech GPs ball head securely. Battery doors still fully accessible. Really couldn't ask for more. There is a review here dinging it because you can't access the side jacks but apparently that guy does not know that you can take the covers completely off and then have full access. I highly suggest this purchase if you're a photog with money to burn but still gawk at a 300+ dollar piece of metal. Bottom line : If you want a pretty one spend 300 bucks... if you want a functional one (it's still quite handsome) and also end up with a little extra cash afterwards, this is the way to go.

This is a very nicely machined bracket. I use it with my 5dmk2 along with an angled usb cable (usb connector at a right angle) and a wired remote - no problems. It's very stable: I photograph a lot of artwork so it's all about stable.

As it's universal I'm also adapting it for my e-pl2 for both mounting and as a useful small grip. With minimal machining (in my case this means hacksaw and file) I can both clear the battery door and center the lens on the tripod (Olympus that's nasty - that's P/S kludging you schmoes ) .

Also, being universal, I don't have to keep buying stuff. Now I'll admit that rss etc is very pretty but by the time you've purchased their special extenders that actually let you use the camera functions - you're over a couple hundred benjamins lighter - it's too much for a cheap b*stard like me. Or - I can get this clamp and 2 bottles of good scotch - I know what my choice is.

I also use sunway clamps etc and find it all very good.

I purchased this item and never really used it. When I decided to use it, i realized it was not as the picture showed. Brand was the same but the frame was very different. I'm very disappointed at the product and at my self for not double checking. You just cant trust all the venders on Amazon!!!

I've used a number of Sunwayfoto products and they're all well machined and far cheaper than premium brands. This L bracket with a Sunwayfoto arca-swiss compatible base clamp fits my Panasonic GH3 or GX7 micro four thirds camera and works well for me. I like L plates better than movable mounts because of lower size and weight. Changing from horizontal to vertical takes about three seconds.

Fantastic, solid metal construction. The camera mounting screws are threaded into bracket so they will not fall out easily. I bought this bracket to add a female thread to the side of my camera like I have at the base of the camera for vertical portrait shooting.

I use this to mount my canon 5dii on a video/fluid tripod head (manfrotto 128lp) as it does not rotate my camera body into a vertical position like ball heads or other photo tripod heads. Using this bracket actually feels more solid than engaging some vertical feature on some tripods.

However, you will need a right angle USB adapter if you need to tether shoot using a canon 5dii. The body is so wide that this brackets widest setting will still inhibit the USB port on the camera.

I considered leaving the bracket on at all times but, the bracket will limit the access to the usb and mic terminals, which I access often for video work.

I was surprised to learn that if I had an Arca Swiss mounting on my tripod head I would only need to rotate my camera and mount without an additional quick release plate as this bracket is a molded Arca Swiss bracket on both orientation.
