About Manfrotto MS050M4-RC4

The Manfrotto L bracket is a unique accessory designed for all the professional photographers who would like to change photo formats in an easy and fast way by quickly flipping the camera from horizontal to vertical position. Manfrotto L Bracket combines lightness with maximum support. The magnesium structure provides a sturdy solution in terms of stability, lightweight and transportability for all types of equipment. Special anti-rotational systems perfectly fit around the camera body guaranteeing a strong and firm grip keeping stable any heavy professional equipment. This accessory helps to extend the vertical and horizontal range of movement, keeping the camera's weight centered over the tripod and avoiding lens movement when flipping from landscape to portrait position.

The L Bracket is adaptable to different models of camera body maintaining high level of precision and ergonomics. The RC4 quick release based on the 410PL plate provides a quick and stable lock for heavy equipment thanks to the large contact area.

Couldn't live with out it


from Mountain View, CA  -  Pro Photographer

The only problem is that with the camera mounted you can't access eith the usb conector or the film cards. I shoot tethered so the choice was easy for me, but it's a choice that has to be made.

Works - Except


from Fort Worth, TX  -  Pro Photographer

It does make it so the camera can be placed on the tripod head in the vertical position. However, the use of Allen screws instead of winged screws makes it difficult assemble and mount the camera. My biggest issue is the fact that no thought was given to the use of accessory connections (USB, HDMI) through the accessory connect door on the side of the camera. The plate that is suppose to keep the camera from rotating on the mount screw is blocks the door. The only way I can use the accessory connection is to mount the camera all the way to the top of the L-Bracket and not use the plate. I use the HDMI output to feed a 24" monitor. The HDMI connector and cable just barely fits between the camera and the bracket. The bracket is usable but the camera can rotate on the mounting screw. The instructions are confusing. Plus, they are so small I had to use a magnifying glass to read them.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a Manfrotto 468MGRC2 Hydrostatic Ball Head with the RC2 Rapid connect system. How will this fit on the plate. Do I need to get something else to make this fit on my present head?
Jerry F  This L-Bracket has an RC-4 mounting plate. It is much larger than the RC-2. It is not compatible with the RC-2 Quick Release. It seems Manfrotto does not have an RC-2 version of their L-Bracket from what I can see on Adorama's web site. If it is important to you, perhaps you could call Adorama customer service and ask. Compare your ball head with an RC-2 QR: with an RC-4 QR version of your ball head: I'm sure you will see the difference right away. I hope this helps.
