    I have an Olympus E-M5 and an L-Bracket for mounting to a tripod with a quick release. Unfortunately, the L-bracket partially prevents connecting a remote trigger. There is a gap between the camera and the L-bracket that would let an elbow connector adapter be inserted. Do you know if such an animal exists?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hello,

    No, I am sorry. You have have better luck reversing the L bracket to the other side of the camera.

    Thanks

    Thanks. I wish the bracket was long enough to reverse it.

    Hello,

    Which bracket and what are you wanting to do?

    Hi Chuck,

    I am using an RRS L-bracket for a Panasonic GH1. I was considering the Sunwayfoto DPL-03 Universal L-Bracket Quick-Release Plate but I think the screw in tripod connector piece on the vertical part of the bracket will line up with the remote connection.

    I see that RRS is coming out with an E-M5 version and there is also one at https://www.mu-43.com/f42/grip-option-27093/index5.html#post284006 although the latter appears to block the remote connection!

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hello,

    This looks a lot slimmer. The Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket is a dual-sided bracket that mounts to an Arca-Swiss-style clamp in either landscape orientation or tilted 90° for portrait mode. This enables efficient changes in the orientation of your camera, without the need to tilt your ball head and re-level the shot. In contrast to tilting the head 90°, when you tilt the bracket your camera remains centered over the tripod.

    Chuck,

    Thanks but that one requires an additional plate for the camera. Maybe JTec will come out with a simple one.

    Thanks again,
    Steve
