The Wizard W-73 Camera Positioning Bracket from NiSi is a rotating collar that attaches to select mirroless camera bodies, allowing the camera and lens to easily rotate between portrait and landscape orientation without having to remove them from the tripod head. This feature is particularly useful for landscape photographers, real estate photographers, and studio portrait photographers who need to quickly change their camera's orientation.
Unlike traditional L-brackets, the Wizard W-73 is designed to work seamlessly with cameras that have fully articulating screens, allowing the screen to be positioned without any compromise. When positioned at 180 degrees, it can also be used for low-angle or macro shooting. The Wizard W-73 features tactile, haptic indicators at 0-, 90-, and 180-degrees to ensure that camera alignment is always maintained. A large, knurled locking knob makes it easy to secure the camera in position. Additionally, the camera is mounted with the sensor positioned in the center of the lens ring, ensuring that the center point of the image is always maintained. The Wizard W-73 features a rubber ring on the inside to ensure the finish of lens barrels are always protected. The outer diameter of the lens mount must be smaller than the inner diameter of the lens ring, lenses with an outer mount diameter larger than 72mm cannot be mounted. To check lens compatibility, measure around the lens near the lens mount to ensure it's less than 72mm.
The Wizard W-73 is constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, making it both rugged and lightweight. The mounting foot is Arca-Swiss compatible, providing wide-range compatibility with most tripod heads and clamps. It also features a 1/4"-20 thread mount so any quick release plate can be attached, making it compatible with almost every tripod. The base of the camera mounting plate stores a magnetically mounted Allen wrench for securely attaching the 1/4"-20 screw to the camera body.
