If using it vertically with cable out the left (bottom), then an extra Arca-Swiss piece is required (can't remember the name but available through ebay) to jack the camera up to make room for the plugs etc.

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

Just bought one from Jack The Hat in Maryport, Cumbria mainly to use with my new Nisi filter system. It a Pig Iron brand whose ball heads I use and can highly recommend, and cost only 17-50. including postage. Arca rails etc. Does not block the tilt screen function and I can also plug in my remote release with no problems. Very well made considering the price. Looked at one from RRS, $175 plus postage and I assume import duty from USA. Ouch. For how often I will use it the Pig Iron is more than adequate. Hope this helps, IW.

I took the side L piece off my E-M1 version so it could be used on the base only for tripod use or making a place for the 'pinky' to sit & only fitted the side bracket when actually needed & maybe the same could be done with the Mk II. Obviously, for longer battery time the HLD-4 will be used instead.

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

I can't find the ProMaster in the UK and I can't find a report of whether it fouls the battery door, ports or screen.

I'm still v happy with my Novoflex 'universal', BTW.

Cheap, but limited screen articulation.

It took a long time for a manufacturer in China to finally come up with one!
This is another ebay seller with that one (as appearing on ebay Australia).

On the other hand, it isn't as good as the ProMaster one.

If you attach the grip the battery can be changed no bother. I have it in the brightest colour which makes it stand out.
That's interesting. I've been put off the 3-legged thing plates because they seem to have a solid base, thus preventing access to the battery. How do you manage this?

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

I bought a cheap plate from Amazon: product number B07D3K24DR (since I can't post a url). However, it does not fit well at all and I am returning it. I think I may have to bite the bullet and buy the RRS version.

On other thing I've noticed about all of these plates; they don't have a tripod hole. It doesn't worry me too much but I suppose if you have one of these straps that attaches via the tripod bush then you might be stuck.

I really wish Meike would make one for this camera. I have their Fuji X-T2 plate and it is a perfect fit and very high quality.

I bought one of these recently. Well made and fits very well. Screen swivel a little compromised, but still very usable.

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

Search this is Ebay:

L-shaped Angle Flash Speedlite Bracket Tray Dual Hot Shoe for DSLR Camera DV

I bought a couple for my A7R but they work fine for the EM-1 too.

I use both cameras with a power battery grip.
