The new L plate is designed to sit a little further away from the camera side taking into account the distance required for the side connector port covers to open, since the connector ports are repositioned and modified in relation to the ones found on the previous D800 models,
However, the L bracket is also compatible with the D800 and D800E cameras.
Packaging and Contents
|The Sunwayfoto PNL-D810R comes in the usual recycled carton box with all the necessary screws and tools carefully embedded into the pre-cut foam.|
The L Bracket
|Mounting screw thread:||1/4"-20 UNC|
As mentioned recently in the More of Sunwayfoto Products Adopt RRS Compatibility the letter "R" at the end of the model name signifies that the dovetail design (width and edge radius) is fully compatible with the RRS® Lever Quick Release Clamps.
|The rear of the PNL-D810R L bracket shows the vertical plate modification and laser engraved Φ lens centering marks on both the base and the vertical plates. The Sunwayfoto logo and model name are laser engraved on the right.|
|The angled front side view shows the rear convex edge which prevents the L bracket from twisting, the cut outs of the vertical plate to allow for he side connector covers to open and the strap loop at the end of the base plate.|
Attaching the L Bracket on the Camera
|The PNL-D810R L plate fits nicely on the Nikon D810 without adding too much bulk whatsoever.|
I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
