Really Right Stuff L-Plate for gripped Canon 5D Mark III

I finally received my Really Right Stuff L-plate (Item Code: BGE11-L) for the BG-E11 gripped Canon 5D Mark III.

The fit is excellent, just like the RRS  L-plate for the (BG-E6) gripped Canon 5D Mark II. RRS had issues with their L-plates and basic camera plates for the ungripped 5D Mark III which resulted in a recall and revised version of those plates.

Thankfully, the L-plate for the BG-E11 was designed correctly and it has a glove-like fit. If anyone was waiting for early reports on the RRS L-plate for the BG-E11, rest assured that it fits properly.

The RRS L-plate has relief cuts to allow the rubber door covers to fit between the L-plate and the camera body. The RRS L-plate is designed to allow the battery magazine to be removed/inserted from the grip while the L-plate is attached.

I’m glad RRS included the gap between the vertical side of L-plate and the port side of the body with the BGE11-L. I still have my RRS L-plate for the BG-E6 gripped Canon 5D Mark II and that plate does not have the gap.

Don’t hesitate to pick up the Really Right Stuff BGE11-L if you need an L-plate for your gripped 5D Mark III.

    Hi There, thank you for brief review of the RRS BGE11 L Plate, I have looking at picking up one myself, just wanted to check on one thing, can you use the BGE11 L Plate on the 5DMk3 with out the battery grip?

    No, the plates for the 5D Mark III with and without the grip are unique. So if you get the RRS L-plate for the 5DIII *with* the grip, you cannot use it on the 5DIII without the grip.
