    I know it’s a new body but I would have thought companies would have been all over the D850 to get L brackets on the market but I can’t seem to find any

    Any D850 owners got their hands on one yet?

    I just bought the Sunwayfoto L bracket for mine, was happy with them on other caneras and this is fine as well. Kirk have one out and so does RRS i believe but both double the price of the Sunwayfoto one and for a basic piece of kit its just not worth it for any gain you might get. I have used Kirk in the past and they are good quality but no need on an L bracket.

    Forgot that Markins do one for the D850 as well so a few options depending on your budget.

    Yup there are plenty of L-Brackets available. I have a Kirk (which is expensive).. if I was to buy one of the cheaper ones that are available now I'd go with the Sunwayfoto as I've used them on other cameras and have been pretty happy with them.

    Sorry to bring this up again but I still haven’t picked as I can’t decide between 3

    KIRK
    Really Right Stuff
    Sunway Photo

    What’s the difference or benefits of getting one of the expensive ones over Sunway photo?

    I’m a believer in you get what you pay for but.... this is just a small metal bracket

    Thats the way i saw it when i got my D810 and bought a Sunwayfoto and bever noticed any difference in use. I had a Kirk and it felt a bit heavier but they both fit the head the same with no movement. Likely to be different grade metal but ask yourself if that will really make much difference to you as they are all aircraft aluminium. I use the Sunwayfoto on my D850.

    Thanks .... totally agree I think I want a list of reasons why I should pay a lot more I just can’t see it!

    I used a Neewer one on my D750 and if they made one for the D850 I wouldn’t hesitate to order one but they don’t

    Think ...... Sunway it is

    If you're going to narrow it down, go between the Kirk and Sunway. I know someone who just got the RRS and got stung with customs etc and cost him over £200

    Then think you can get almost 3 Sunways for the Price of the Kirk.

    Only reason NOT to get the Sunway is if you would feel safer with your gear on a Kirk and don't mind paying the extra for the peace of mind.

    I've got the Kirk as it was available sooner when I got my D850 last year.

    I used to be religious about using only RRS or occasionally Kirk products. One time I needed a bracket quickly and so bought the iShoot one from a local supplier. I've never looked back since. Cost me £30 something instead of nearly £200 and frankly I can barely see a difference and it does the job just as the RRS and Kirks did. Try one of the Sunway or iShoots, you've little to lose and it'll probably save you hundreds in the long run.

    Sure, if your purpose is only to mount it both vertically or
    horizontally on the head.

    Better Kirk or RRS will protect your camera if ever dropped,
    as a student on mine made the experience. Materials being
    the key feature here Duncan! :cool:

    I'm not sure there would realistically be any difference if dropped, K. An L bracket provides no impact protection and if the bracket breaks on impact I don't think the camera would suffer more or less because of that.

    ... as long as you don't need access to the earphone/microphone ports... which I don't, so yes I agree, I'm keeping the old gripped D810 L-plate too. :)

    Cool improvements were coming with the D850.
    Being a photographer, I have nothing from video
    improvements or better access! :D:cool:
