Cant Find L Bracket for S 007 FOUND ONE

If you can't find an old RRS bracket, the Arca-Swiss is really a surprisingly solid alternative. I was dubious, but got one for a Hassy X1D that I didn't intend to live as my main camera, so didn't want a dedicated RRS plate for it. Now I think that I won't bother to get any more RRS L-brackets, since the Arca-Swiss one works so well. Here it is very extended to handle vertical tethering. It's quickly adjustable (without tools) into a more compact arrangement. And it has a QD socket, which the newer RRS plates have, but the older S plate doesn't.

Make sure to use the large registration pin. The o-ring goes inside the hole in the bracket to hold it in place and it prevents catastrophic tilting in the vertical orientation. I missed this, but fortunately never needed it.
