I use Really Right Stuff L-Brackets on all my camera. Aside from mounting in the tripod head, they also protect the sides and bottom of the camera—out in the field that matters as I often set down the camera on rocks or sometimes brace it on one, etc. So the bracket takes the scratches—mostly:
We are planning on including small strips of temporary adhesive clear vinyl that can be applied to the camera to protect the anodized metal from scratches due to the L-Plate mounting and use.
As shown, the bracket is a prototype, but the production version should be available soon.
The Fujifilm GFX 100 is setting a new bar for medium format, mirrorless cameras. With a camera of this value, you should get the best plate to compliment the camera. The answer: the Really Right Stuff BGFX100-L plate.
The bottom of the GFX 100 plate flanges contour the GFX's integrated vertical grip to prevent twisting, and to enhance the ergonomics of the grip itself. The shape and opening of the upright section gives access to all side ports. The structure that ties the base to the upright clears the battery cartridge while minimally protruding.
The GFX 100-L plate can be slid away from the left side of the camera body. This allows tethered portrait shooting while keeping your lens centered atop any Arca Swiss compatible clamp.
Customarily, with the L-plate not slid away, at integrated strap lug anchor can be used as a secondary attachment point between the L-plate and camera. Both the primary 1/4"-20 screw at the base and strap lug anchor are tightened with the same hex key, which is conveniently stored in the L-plate itself.
All BGFX100-L plates are first CNC machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Every edge and surface is shaped ergonomically and with maximized strength. Afterward they are finished with a smooth matte surface. Finally they receive a Type II black anodizing and laser engraving.
All of our quick-release plates utilize a custom machined ¼"-20 threaded, captive-style mounting screw that threads into the tripod mounting socket of your camera body.
