I want to learn how to take panoramas, and to do that effectively, I believe I need an L Bracket for my A6400.
So far, these are the two best choices I see:

Any other suggestions? I'm leaning towards the second one because it is cheaper and I question whether I really trust the grip extension on the first model pictured.

I would go with the SmallRig bracket because of the added handle. It increases the grip depth and, SmallRig makes other adapters that you could add if needed. I decided to go with a full cage on my A6600. That gives you threaded mounting holes on all 4 sides for future endeavors. At least, that my thoughts on it, FWIW. :sneaky:(y)

Thanks JD. I appreciate all input.
Can you tell me more about your decision to go with a full cage? I have always been curious why people choose that path?

I did a short review of the UURig R006 a while back. It's a nice l-bracket that also makes the camera a little more comfortable to hold. Only negative is that it makes it more difficult to remove the SD card. I've not tried the SmallRig version but most of their products are pretty good. A full cage will add more weight and protection but I'd normally only use one if attaching additional accessories like a mic or external recorder.

Great review Tim, I think it might be the right tool for me after all!
