The new PCL-5DIIIG follows a little different design pattern than the former PC-5DIII specific plate and the PCL-5DIII Specific L Bracket for the Canon EOS 5D MkIII which ware released about a year ago.
The new L bracket is not a Skeleton type but rather a Hollow-Out type as we shall see further.
The L Bracket
|Dovetail Width:||39 mm|
|Mounting screw thread:||1/4"-20 UNC|
PCL-5DIIIG L bracket is precision CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminium with high quality surface anodizing. The vertical plate is braced to the massive looking base plate with two wider bars than its PCL-5DIII sibling which is intended for use without a battery grip.
Convex edges both at the front and the back sides of the base plate prevent it from moving or twisting, while extra strap loops exist at the end of both base and vertical plates.
The package except for the PCL-5DIIIG L bracket, will include also 4 x M3 safety stop screws, 1 x 1/4"-20 captive screw and 2 x Allen wrenches for the M3 and 1/4"-20 screws respectively.
I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
