Ready your camera to efficiently capture both horizontal and vertical images using the LBS-K1 L-Bracket Side Plate for the Pentax K1 DSLR from Kirk Enterprises. This item is designed specifically for use with the optional Kirk PZ-163 camera plate. Attach the two pieces to create a custom made L-bracket to fit the base of your Pentax K1 DSLR, and mount onto Arca-type compatible quick release platforms. With this setup, you can quickly flip from portrait to landscape orientation and back without the need to tilt your tripod head and re-level the shot. The assembled L-bracket permits the use of your camera strap for added security. These plates are machined in the USA from lightweight aluminum alloy, with sensor centering lines cut into the sides to help with setting up panoramic shots. To gain access to your camera's battery pack and side ports/slots, simply loosen the bracket and slide it away from body.
