About Kirk

The Kirk L-Bracket for Nikon D800 and D800E allows you to switch from portrait to landscape orientation and vice versa with your D800 or D800E - efficiently, without the need to tilt your ball head and re-level the shot.

On both of its sides, the lightweight aluminum BL-D800 L-Bracket is compatible with Arca-Swiss-style quick-release clamps. It mounts to the bottom of the camera via a standard 1/4"-20 screws. The single piece of machined 6061TG aluminum preserves your access to the battery compartment and the camera strap loop.

What's not to like?


from Redwood Country  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have been buying and using (and sometimes abusing) Kirk Brackets since the Nikon D100. They fit precisely and hold up to anything I have thrown at them. My only nit to pick on any of them is the price, but I suspect the captive audience has something to do with that.


You Can Trust All Products from Kirk


from New Mexico  -  Photo Enthusiast

A USA made product displaying outstanding quality and fits the D800 perfectly. I have several Kirk products and they are all excellent in terms of functionality.

Best L bracket for the D800


from Cincinnati, OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

I did a lot of research before I bought an L-bracket and finally settled on the Kirk. The feature that gave it the edge for me was the fact that I could still access the side panel of the D800 to attach an HDMI cable without having to loosen and move the bracket. Overall, it's very solidly built and fits like a glove on the D800/E. It's a Kirk, I'd expect nothing less :)

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What function does this bracket serve?
XIAOBING Y  It let the camera gravity center close the tripod head when you shot vertically. It also useful for shooting multiple images for stitching a panorama photo.
Shopper  what is this used for?
steve g  An "L" bracket has 2 Arca-Swiss plates so you can avoid flopping into the notch of the ballhead for vertical shots.
Shopper  I have a Zeikos 77" Tripod - will the Kirk L-Bracket work on my tripod? Don't know if the tripod head features a Arca Swiss compatible quick release
JOSEPH P  The bracket is great but it does require an Arca Swiss compatible head.My Manfrotto tripod required a new ball head but no regrets, I bought a Vanguard head and this pair work better (quick release)than the Manfretto system in my opinion. try it, you'll like it. Have fun.
