Universal L-Brackets


Universal L-brackets are designed with versatility in mind, in order to work with a wide range of different camera models. As camera manufacturers create models with battery doors, camera screw threads, side ports, and rear screens in many different configurations, a universal L-bracket needs to be adjustable to accomodate these varied features.

Our simple universal L-bracket is the QR11 2.0. It comes in two sizes QR11-L 2.0 for mirrorless and standard DSLR cameras, and QR11-FB 2.0 for full body and cameras with battery grips fitted.

Our Ellie L-bracket system is modular, with greater versatility, adjustability, and 4 different base options, enabling it to fit a wider range of cameras.



L-brackets are designed to enable a quick change from landscape to portrait orientation and vice-versa, when using a tripod. They enable the user to maintain a level horizon and keep the camera on the same focal plane, while keeping the weight of the camera above the centre of the tripod - the most stable position.



If you own more than one camera, or switch your camera body regularly, a universal L-bracket can give you the needed functionality without having to buy a new L-bracket for each camera. Thanks to adjustable mount positioning, a universal L-bracket can fit on to a variety of cameras. Look below for more information on compatibility.



All of our L-brackets are compatible with standard Arca Swiss style clamps, which means they can used with a variety of tripods. In addition, our Ellie universal L-bracket system also has versions that are able to be clipped into Peak Design's Capture clip system.
