Exceptional quality & craftsmanship. The PLNZ67 is a customized fit to my Nikon Z 6 body, which eliminates twisting & allows quick orientation from horizontal to vertical positioning on my Arca-Swiss compatible ball head attached to a tripod. It's lightweight yet strong and fits my Nikon Z 6 and ball head perfectly. You can even attach ProMediaGear's BBX Boomerang Flash Bracket to the bottom plate, which is great so I now I can swap the Boomerang between this body and my Nikon D850 (which also is attached to a ProMediaGear plate). The bottom of the plate offers a port for PMG's Quick Release Plug (much better than the QD Connect system. It's secure & operation is smooth and positive and will use it with my Hold Fast Gear straps) and there's a built-in slot for magnetic storage of the supplied Allen wrench. The PLNZ67's vertical bracket allows clear access to port doors on the left, as well as protect any cables or adapters attached to them. It even protects my Nikon WR-R10 adapter when inserted in the bottom DC2 port. You can even slide the "L" out if you need more room for thick tethered cables. I can also confirm that this L-Bracket does NOT interfere with the FTZ adapter mounted on the body. You can remove the FTZ without first removing the camera from the tripod. You can also attach the L-Bracket to the FTZ, if desired. Access to battery compartment is also confirmed. This L-Bracket's finish is beautiful, mechanisms are fully functional, a perfect right angle bracket and very sturdy in use during my night cityscapes. In my opinion, this is the best premium L-Bracket yet made for the Nikon Z 6 / Z 7. Recommended.
I need an L Bracket for my Z 6 II that can open up pretty wide for tethered shoots even in Portrait. It opens wider than a Really Right Stuff Bracket. The materials are solid and the machining precise. I have another one for a Nikon D500 - With the Battery Grip attached. At the time PMG was the only one. The twin Stainless Steel rods for the extension allows a wider opening and a stronger no flex connection at full extension.
Excellent, solid, custom fit and finish to the Nikon Z6 body. Love the fact that it can be used on the Z6 body and easily moved to the FTZ adapter too. No issues with interference with the various ports or buttons...just loosen two hex head screws on the bottom of the plate and move the vertical plate out of the way. The allen key is secured in the vertical plate and held captive by a magnet and is visible at all times. The QD mount feature has positive and solid engagement to the bracket too with 4 ball bearing detents. I chose this L-Plate over the Smallrig, Kirk, and Really Right Stuff solutions.
Over all it seems to be a high quality product; the only downside I see is the difference of around 1 mm between the axes of landscape and portrait position. This difference was identified by an expert who configured my panoramic system. Depending on the panoramic motif you shoot, deviation from the nodal point can effect the result. Arca-Swiss compatibility: it fits, but not perfectly the expert said to me. If you buy the related Cold Shoe you'll be good advised to buy the anti rotation pins too. Regrettably I did not. Anyhow, I'm sure I'm going to take good photographs with it. Whoever buys from Europe should not forget that the import tax makes the purchase considerably more expensive.
I previously purchased similar brackets for my D-810 cameras. The design of the bracket mounts firmly and quickly to the tripod. The camera remains solid in the mount whether it is landscape or portrait. The sliding side mount allows easy access to the ports on the side of the camera. The additional flash bracket is perfect for event photography. The flash bracket fastens securely to the flash bracket making it a one piece unit that can be handheld or tripod mounted that gives fully flexibility for your flash.
