Hey guys

Im looking to get an L bracket which works nice on the A7r. It should of course be possible to change batteries, memory cards etc so i dont have to remove it everytime..

Thanks

the best is the RRS bracket, however, even with the cheapo neewer, you will be able to change batteries. I had both, stuck with RRS for a different reason, had a really convenient knob at the bottom to adjust

I use the cheapo chinese L-brackets for all my mirrorless bodies and they're actually very nice, unlike some of the chinese DSLR L-brackets. If you want the best though, it's either RRS or Kirk.

the neewers are pretty good, great even. My biggest gripe is the slot for cable release. I cant even find a right angle cable, so that slot has become useless. Problem is that the slot is right in the middle, and the RRS bracket has a marking for the center for panorama sake.

I stuck with the RRS one for the ability to quickly pull the bracket outwards to stick in my regular cable release, however, I dont bother with that anymore and would be better off with the neewer. Good thing is that I got the RRS version for half price second hand. I wouldnt pay full price for the RRS version, the neewer one is good enough.

I ordered a wireless remote for the A7 cameras so that issue will be non existant (if it does what i want)

The regular, cheap L bracket works great. This camera's achilles heel is the use of L brackets on a gripped model, in my opinion.

I have two brackets for gripped models and they suck. I don't use em... should probably just sell them to someone else who hasn't figured this out yet... lol

Thats not so easy lol. I tried to sell a Sigma 24-70 2.8 which i simply didnt like and to sell it to someone knowing they dont know yet that this lens is not good it takes a lot of rudeness hahaha

That's probably true, David! Besides, I don't horde anything anymore, except photo gear... (I may have a need someday! ha )
