3 Legged Factor (3LT) simply introduced Freya, an L-bracket designed to suit the favored Fujifilm X-T5 particularly, and Shutterbug obtained a pattern to judge a number of weeks earlier than launch date. Here is our rundown.
In the event you did not know, the primary goal of an L-bracket is to offer an Arca-Swiss appropriate pair of rails (a base and an upright) to facilitate camera attachment to a tripod in horizontal and vertical orientations. The L-bracket is used as an alternative of the mounting plate equipped with the tripod head.
Most examples have been refined to accommodate the attachment of assorted equipment, e.g., microphones, area displays and lighting gadgets. They’re very useful, particularly in the event you shoot loads of video.
The Downside with Odd L-Brackets
Though L-brackets are extraordinarily handy, they continue to be barely underutilized by photographers and video shooters. A part of the shortage of recognition stems from their typically one-shape-fits-all design. In too many circumstances, L-brackets intrude with the battery compartment cowl and/or articulated camera monitor—customers should take away the bracket to vary batteries and in some cases the reminiscence playing cards as properly. There goes the comfort facet.
3 Legged Factor, working in cooperation with Fujifilm UK, has resolved these points for customers of Fujifilm X-T5 cameras in a grand approach. Following the success of its Gracy L-bracket for Fujifilm GFX 100S and 50S II cameras, 3LT created Freya, a devoted L-bracket that doesn’t impede camera accessibility or operate. (3LT offers brackets, tripods, and different equipment anthropomorphic names, therefore the Gracy and Freya monikers.)
The Arca-Swiss appropriate Freya L-bracket offers X-T5 customers unfettered entry to the battery cowl and facet I/O ports. Moreover, cut-outs alongside the bottom and within the upright permit the rear display screen to be opened and angled. An indent within the upright accommodates the camera’s strap lug. The form of the bottom ensures a safe match, and a 1/4-20 stainless-steel camera screw attaches the L-bracket securely to the camera. As well as, 3LT provides an adapter that permits the usage of Peak Design’s well-liked v3 Seize Clip system
Comprised of aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, Freya includes a 1/4-20 threaded gap in its upright for the attachment of the aforementioned equipment. The bottom part of Freya may be prolonged for use with cables when in portrait orientation. 3 Legged Factor provides a cable administration bracket that slots onto the upright. Additionally, the bottom can be utilized alone if the only real intent is to connected to a tripod in panorama orientation.
As a frequent Fujifilm X-T5 person, I connected Freya to my camera and nonetheless have not taken it off. It attaches securely and offers simply sufficient additional grip on the lefthand facet (a bonus past authentic goal). Freya may be very top quality and engaging as properly. Extremely beneficial.
