#12. "RE: RRS L Bracket Obstructs Connector Cover." In response to In response to 0
I'm a little confused by all this . . .
My RRS D800 brackets (w/ & w/o battery pack) have an adjustable mounting screw so that you can back off the bracket from the left end of the camera if you are in the habit of using that door. About 1/4" gives you easy access to the door.
It appears to me that that option allowed RRS to make the bracket a bit narrow on that end to minimize the added dimension to the camera.
I think the cutaway is not to get your finger in there ('cause it doesn't with the bracket tight against the left end of the camera body) but to provide additional clearance for cables.
