Kirk L Bracket For Canon EOS R Review

Updated: May 3, 2020

Thanks for checking out my review of the brand new Kirk Enterprise Solutions L bracket for the new Canon EOS R.

Now I'm sure most of you reading this will know what an L bracket is and what it's for but for those that don't I will explain.

An L bracket replaces the mounting plate from your camera to tripod head and enables you to switch between portrait & landscape styles while still maintaining a balanced centre weight over the tripod head, Its also a very quick way to switch in between and perfect for panoramas as the angle of arc is dead centre.

If your current head is, for example a ball head you will tilt it to the side but it will no longer be a true centre and again the arc of sweep during a panorama will be much wider.

So in short an L bracket has some good advantages over a traditional mounting plate.

As with mounting plates you can get custom brackets to perfectly fit the base of your camera so it will for example still allow access to a battery compartment or card slot etc.
