Really Right Stuff is versatile mounting platform with a robust right-handed grip for improved handling and shooting stability. The L-plate is an Arca-type compatible plate that facilitates easier, more stable switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations when working atop a tripod. The L-shape of the plate also benefits shooting in vertical orientation with panorama nodal slides, for maintaining a consistent nodal point, and shooting in horizontal orientation with side-mount gimbal heads. This specialized plate is also designed to replace the original Leica base plate and features a foam gasket for dust and moisture sealing. This plate has a magnet that ensures full camera functionality when it is properly attached and a tool-free wingnut screw is available for easy removal and replacement.
