    Maybe I haven't been using the correct keywords in my searches but I have not been able to find an Arca-Swiss compatible L-bracket for EM5 w/ HLD-6.

    Is that because no-one has brought one to market yet?

    Pre-answering the inevitable 'Why?' question: I really like the vertical shutter release when shooting portraits from a tripod. Yes, I still use one of those antiques . . . :smile:

    TIA for any assistance with this!

    OzRay, thanks for the quick response. I should have said 'dedicated' bracket -- I already have a universal one and though it works, it's cumbersome.

    I've been looking for the same thing for the E-M1 and hld-7. It seems like nobody wants to make dedicated brackets for use with the grips.

    I think you would be better off getting an L-bracket directly attached to the body and use a cable release for portrait orientation.
    Any L-bracket attached to the HDL-6 would stack up 3-4 mounting screws and be pretty sloppy.
    I guess for portrait sessions with flash it doesn't really matter, but that is likely to be a pretty small user base.

    We have a brochure showing all of our L brackets and plates. An email to me will get you the PDF to look at.
    We have several brackets in both classic and monoballfix sizes.
    Be well,

    companies like RRS may see enough of a business case for L plates for the bodies......but how many OM-D E-M1/5/10 owners are using battery grips? I have yet to see someone use a battery grip on a M43 body in the field.
  8. I'm unaware of a battery grip for the E-M10, but the Oly grip never leaves my camera. I have also yet to find a need for my tripod in the field, but I keep looking.
