This is a really cheap way to get an L-Bracket for your tripod. Why use one? An L-Bracket keeps your camera centered over the tripod for added stability among other things. It’s a great addition to anyone who shoots in the studio.

The cheapest one and honestly the only one, that I could find was the one by Kirk Photo. The thing looks great but its 130 dollars. I couldn’t see spending that much on the L-bracket. I mean that’s more money than I planned to spend on the head.
