    Does anyone know if such a thing exists, or if there is a 'universal' bracket that would fit well?

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    I just made myself one like this: Universal L Bracket The bracket mounts to an Arca-Swiss plate on the camera.

    The advantage of this design is that the L-plate doesn't have to stay on the camera when it's not needed. The disadvantages are the extra weight and bulk associated with the clamp. Life is a series of tradeoffs.

    The one I made for myself cost around $50 IIRC for a Chinese L-bracket and a Chinese lever style A-S clamp (which is faster to work than the screw clamp Acratech uses). It took some machining, though.
