Really Right Stuff L-Bracket for Sigma DP1 / DP2 /DP3 Merrill with Grip

CameraPlate

I just got the Really Right Stuff BDP2 Set: Base + L-Plate + Grip for the Sigma DP3 Merrill. This is a really nice handling piece of gear for the DP Merrill, and it also affords a lot of protection to the camera. The grip fits my hands very nicely.

See also L-bracket with grip for the Olympus OM-D E-M5.

The Really Right Stuff L-brackets are available for most cameras. An L-bracket offers the following advantages:

  • Instant mount in landscape or portrait mode on clamp style tripod head (the only kind worth considering for normal field use).
  • Protection at bottom and left (e.g., for bracing against rocks and the like.
  • Optional grip attaches to the base plate (not shown, not yet available, coming soon).
  • High quality anodized perfect-fit construction with unobstructed access to the battery and storage card.
  • Easy on/off with supplied allen wrench.
  • The ā€œLā€ part of the plate is easily removed (e.g. for cycling, etc); for all around shooting, I might do this, retaining the the bottom plate and grip portion (which I am looking forward to, enjoying the RRS grip very much on my Olympus E-M5).

The grip makes handling the Sigma DP Merrill a very secure thing. I like it a lot when shooting. It adds some bulk and weight, so when I don't need it, the whole L-bracket and grip unbolts as a unit in just a few seconds with the supplied allen wrench.
