England’s 3 Legged Thing announced Zayla and Zayla PD, two brand new dedicated L-brackets, designed specifically for the new Nikon Z 50 camera. Zayla has a standard Arca Swiss plate profile, making it compatible with a broad range of supports. Zayla PD features a footing on the horizontal aspect which enables it to slot into Peak Design® V3 Capture clips in 4 directions and also fits Arca Swiss clamps on both horizontal and vertical aspects, the company says.
“When Nikon first announced the Z 50, we were excited about the prospect of again working in collaboration with one of the world’s most recognized brand names, to create an L-Bracket dedicated to the camera,” says Danny Lenihan, founder and CEO, 3 Legged Thing. “It’s a huge honour for us to be given the opportunity to work on the Z 50, and create this essential accessory before the product was even launched, and is testament to the incredible impact of our Zelda Bracket for the Z 6 and Z 7.”
Precision milled from a single block of aircraft-grade magnesium alloy, Zayla and Zayla PD give full access to the battery door, memory card slot, and side ports with the bracket in place. Both L-brackets attach to the camera using a ¼”-20 stainless steel Stagsden camera screw. The L-brackets feature locator tabs which fit snugly around the base of the camera to prevent any twisting once the camera is secured to the bracket. For additional security when attached to a tripod, both brackets have security screws.
The vertical aspect of both Zayla system L-brackets includes two ¼”-20 female threads which enable the attachment of screw-in straps, or accessory arms. There are also ¼”-20 screw mounts in the base of both Zayla and Zayla PD which can be used for the attachment of screw-in straps.
Zayla and Zayla PD will be available in two colors: Copper (orange) or Metallic Slate (grey). Suggested retail prices are £79.99 / US $89.99 for ZAYLA, and £89.99 / US $99.99 for ZAYLA PD; ZAYLA is available immediately via camera retailers, or direct from 3 Legged Thing’s website. ZAYLA PD can be pre-ordered now and will be available later in March 2020.
