A little after two months from the release of the PCL-6D Custom L Bracket for Canon EOS 6D Body, Sunwayfoto has announced earlier today their Custom L bracket specifically designed for the Canon EOS 6D equipped with Battery Grip.
Following the design of the also recent PCL-5DIIIG L Bracket for Canon EOS 5D MkIII with Battery Grip, the new PCL-5DG differs from its siblings the PC-6D Plate and the PCL-6D L Bracket.
The new and larger L bracket is not a Skeleton type but rather a Hollow-Out type, which in my opinion offers a more rigid platform for the elongated vertical side.
The L Bracket
|Dovetail Width:||39 mm|
|Mounting screw thread:||1/4"-20|
PCL-6DG L bracket is precision CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminium with high quality surface anodizing.
As illustrated on the right photo, lens centering Φ marks exist on the horizontal and vertical plain.
|The vertical plate is braced to the massive looking base plate with two wider bars than its PCL-6D 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 twisting. However, beside the looks, the L bracket weighs only 139 gr !|
There is no provision for M3 safety stop screws on the vertical plate for security when in portrait orientation. On the other hand there is one 1/4"-20 threaded hole at the uppermost part of the plate for direct mounting on a pod with an 1/4"-20 stud. However it seems to me very offset for the purpose.
The package except for the PCL-6DG L bracket, will include also 2 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.
