  • The Explorer VX-UN Vertical Explorer Universal L Bracket is designed to fit a large range of DSLR / Mirrorless cameras to provide flexibility between horizontal and vertical shooting positions and to help maintain balance through the center column of a tripod.

    Multiple 1/4” mounting threads are located on the bracket’s bottom and side to support accessories such as video lights or microphones connected via mounting arms or cold shoe adaptors. Anti-slip rubber pads and dual safety stops minimizing lateral movement for security and help to prevent the camera from accidentally sliding out of compatible ARCA / RRS quick-release clamps.

This can provide multiple options for compositions while still maintaining balance and even weight distribution on a tripod.

    • Better weight distribution and balance through the tripod
    • Maintain composition when changing from horizontal to vertical orientation
    • Great for panoramic shots in both vertical and horizontal orientation
    • Allows for a full range of motion in portrait / vertical orientation when using a ball-head
    • Maintain access to the accessory ports on your camera (custom-fitted L-Brackets)
    • Acts as a protective shell around the camera body
