Following the success of 3 Legged Thing’s QR11 Universal L-Brackets, the British manufacturer has announced that Zelda, an L-Bracket designed specifically for the Nikon Z6 and Z7 will go on sale in February.
3 Legged Thing Founder & CEO, Danny Lenihan said:
“It is a testament to how far we have come as a company, that we were contacted by Nikon in August, a few hours after the announcement of the Z Series cameras, to develop and manufacture a camera-specific L-Bracket.”
Aircraft-Grade Magnesium Alloy
Available in two colours (copper or metallic slate grey), the Zelda is milled from a single block of aircraft-grade magnesium alloy. It’s designed to fit the Z 6 and Z 7 bodies while still giving full access to the battery door, memory card slot, and side ports. There are also indents that ensure the cameras’ rear screen can be tilted while the bracket is in place.
The Zelda attaches to the camera using a 1/4-inch-20 stainless steel Stagsden bolt, and a locator pin fits in the base of the camera to prevent slippage. The bracket is Arca-Swiss compatible to enable the Nikon mirrorless cameras to be mounted quickly in Arca-Swiss type tripod heads.
There is also a 1/4-inch-20 thread on the vertical arm to enable accessories like a sling-strap or microphone to be attached.
There are also security screws on the horizontal and vertical aspects for extra security when mounted on a
In addition, a 1/4-inch-20 screw thread on the base of the Zelda to allows it to be directly connected to any mount of that size.
Commenting on the collaboration, Nikon UK Marketing Director Jeremy Gilbert said:
“It’s been great working with Danny and the team at 3 Legged Thing on the brilliant L-Bracket for our new Nikon Z Series. Having had the prototype for a while, it’s definitely one of the most useful accessories we’ve used and I’d happily give it my personal recommendation as a piece of kit you’re unlikely to take off your camera.
