Supersized Universal L-Bracket Announced by 3 Legged Thing

Simon Skinner - 5 years ago

Following the success of their QR11-L Universal L-Bracket, announced here back in July 2017, 3 Legged Thing has announced two new supersized L brackets suitable for use with full-sized cameras, and cameras with battery grips attached

The QR11-FB Universal L-Bracket has been announced today at CES in Las Vegas.

3 Legged Thing Founder and CEO, Danny Lenihan, told PhotoBite: “When we launched the QR11-L in July 2017, we were really excited about introducing a truly innovative Universal L-Bracket to the market, but had little idea it would quickly become the best-selling L-Bracket in the world. Many of our customers, both trade and consumer, asked us to make one for full-bodied and gripped cameras, which led us to design the QR11-FB. We’re excited to launch it on the world stage that is CES, in Las Vegas.”

Designed to make the switch from landscape to portrait quick and easy, and crucially, retain the sensor position for better continuity and streamlined workflow, 3 Legged Thing’s QR11-FB Universal L-Bracket is a quick release plate with a 110mm working base which is compatible with standard Arca Swiss® style clamps and heads. The QR11-FB comes with triangular pads, designed to tessellate and provide as much surface contact as possible on the baseplate, which translates to more grip and a more secure connection.

The QR11-FB Universal L-Bracket has a 126mm vertical aspect, and thanks to the additional 1/4″-20 threaded hole, allows for the addition of accessories such as monitors and microphones and other standard 1/4″-20 fittings.

It also comes with dual strap connectors, for compatibility with all standard camera straps and specialist connectors, and is the only sling strap compatible L-Bracket available today.

The vertical aspect has an opening which may also allow access to the cable or battery doors, depending on the camera design. The new bracket will be available in two colours; Copper and Metallic Slate Grey.

Pricing and availability

The QR11-FB Universal L-Bracket will come in at just £59.99 and will be available from 30th January 2018.
