All Change for Silly Saturday (SilS31)
So there I was thinking I ought to get myself an L bracket to make it easier to have the camera in vertical (for portraits) on the tripod ... no problem I thought - oh silly me!
There are plenty of these brackets about, made to fit a variety of cameras, with or without a battery box attached, but they all appear to be made for the Arca Swiss quick release clamp ... so I thought I'll just buy the Manfrotto generic version, as my tripods* have Manfrotto QR clamps.
I'll let you check for yourselves how much that costs.
Yes - about the same as a reasonable travel tripod
Still with me? The cost of a generic Arca Swiss type bracket, and three new QR clamps, a set of Arca Swiss plates and two adaptors to fit them to my Manfrotto ball heads ... is less than half of that!
Silly enough for Silly Saturday?
*Edit - could have explained that better!
