Advice needed - Acessories to shoot vertical with tripod?
Feb 9, 2014

Hi all,

I will be trying to do some night shots with my gear ( K5II & K30 ).

I have a fairly sturdy tripod but need an accessory to be able to position my camera vertically.

I believe I need an L-plate ( or is it something else ? ). Could you guys recommend one that does not cost an arm and a leg ( it is just for occasional use )?

Also, I understood some ball heads would allow for same. So buying a new tripod with the adequate ballhead could allow for same? Right? Any recs ?

Thanks guys!
