[Misc] Tripod Ballhead Attachment

Click for full size
Hi all,

I'm curious if anyone has ever seen this type of ballhead/ attachment for tripods. It looks like a bracket that attaches itself to the corner of the camera body and allows you to swivel the camera from Landscape to Portrait and back again (and lock in place with that grey handle) ...without losing your composition or having to move the whole tripod.

Check out the attached picture.

I can't seem to find something like this or this particular brand. I looked on this photographer's site (Joel Grimes) but can't find it.

Thanks!

It looks like a Really Right Stuff ball head and an L-plate.

There are quite a few manufacturers make "L" brackets for the D800 with grip. A few listed below

Awesome thank you!.....Now I would need a ballhead that is compatible with these L Mounts correct?.....or could I use the ball head I have now with is a regular manfrotto one.

Thanks

For quick shots where I have to change angles a lot, I like the Manfrotto ball head.
