"L-bracket for D7000"


Atlanta, US
          

I exchanged emails with Really Right Stuff about the availability of an L-bracket for the D7000. They indicated that design of an L-bracket won't start until they get a production camera. Once they get the camera, it will be 5-7 weeks before the L-bracket is ready for distribution.

The dimensions have not changed much from the D90, I wonder if the D90 L-Bracket will fit (although you would not have access to the side ports by the looks of it.

< I wonder if the D90 L-Bracket will fit>

Good question.

My D300 L Bracket fits the D90 nicely. My D70 and D200 L brackets will not fit my D300 and my D300 bracket will not fit the D70 or D200. Sometimes the changes are VERY small. The problem ares are the access slots on the side and the bottom of the LCD.

The D7000 will require more use of the side access flap since it does not have a 10 pin connector and uses the mini USB on the side instead.

I like Kirk L-Brackets. Here is their announcement of a bracket for the D7000.

I use RRS L-brackets, but can probably answer. The differences are very small and probably don't matter in many cases.

RRS says it is better to use RRS brackets with the RRS lever release since there is little room for adjustment to accomodate small differences in clamp groove design. With the regular screw release it does not make any real difference. This may just be sales spin since Markins does not have a similar requirement on their new lever release.

Another factor is the Kirk is often a little cheaper by $10.

These are custom designed items. There can be small differences in features and access to the areas on the side of the camera. The Kirk bracket on the D70 allowed a little easier access to the flap on the side. Another example - the D300 L-bracket from RRS had a slot rather than a single screw hole to allow small differences in positioning. The Kirk model (I think) had a single screw hole allowing no variation.

And of course, buying the Kirk models through the Pro Shop helps support Nikonians.

For more thoughts and discussion you might want to post in the tripod and support forum
