“We’ve already been inundated with requests for a dedicated L-bracket for the Nikon Z8,” said Stuart Boston, Chief Operations Officer at 3 Legged Thing. “With the huge popularity of our other L-brackets for Nikon cameras, customers trust us to provide a high-quality L-bracket that will help them create amazing images. We’re happy to bring them this new bracket for the Z8.”

These cut-outs facilitate easy access to the camera’s rear tilt screen, camera strap lug, and focus mode button. The L-bracket is also equipped with a rubber bumper inside the vertical aspect, ensuring stability during portrait orientation.
At the base of the L-bracket, a strap attachment lug is included, along with weight-saving cut-outs. It comes complete with a ¼”-20 Stainless Steel Stagsden camera screw, and two Stainless Steel security pins are integrated into the base. A locator pin secures the L-bracket to the camera’s base, preventing twisting or movement.
