Will RRS custom brackets for the 10D fit the 20D?

[font color=\'#000000\']Call them. They will give you the straight scoop.

Smart money says "no way Jose." My guess is they are already working on a 20D L Bracket (with and without the grip).

Same deal with 3rd-party RAW convertors (PS CS and C1). The 20D convertors are "in the works."[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I just talked to Kirk.  They have a 20D on order and expect to have brackets (for body, and body and grip) ready 2 to 3 weeks after they get the 20D.  It should be reasonable to assume that RRS will do the same.

That's are there is to do, except wait.  And, get the 20D.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']Since you already have the 10D bracket, you could take it into a shop and see how well it fits the 20D.  While it may not be a perfect fit, it might fit well enough to be usable.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']And my guess is that since the 20D is smaller, it will probably fit, but the front lip won't quite hit the body and the side relief holes might not be in the right position to pass the cable release through. But it may very well be usable, just tighten it down properly so it doesn't want to shift or pivot about the screw.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I had this reply from RRS:

Hi Andrew,

Unfortunately, the contours of the new Canon 20D are different from the
10D, and it also uses a completely different battery pack. We are in
the process of creating a new custom L-plate for the camera, but we
haven't started one for the battery pack yet. The camera L-plate should
be available by the time Canon starts shipping.

Anyone want to buy my B56L for the 10D?[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I have the B56L bracket for the 10D and BG-ED3 grip from Really Right Stuff. Does anyone know if this bracket or the other custom brackets for the 10D from RRS will fit the 20D? The RRS website does not show any useful info in this regard.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I suppose that someone state-side could call RRS, or Kirk, and ask.  Then post the answer here.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']The 20D is a smaller camera then the 10D. Since the L brackets are custom made for the camera I highly doubt the 10D bracket will fit on the 20D.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']The differences between 10D and 20D, however slight, are the reason that Kirk will take 2 or 3 weeks to design, test and make brackets.  RRS ditto.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']My 20D is on order, and I'm sure when they become available I'll get a custom bracket.  I've got custom plates on my D30 & 10D, and will probably go for an L bracket with the 20D (plus grip).

However, I also have a Wimberley P5 generic plate, which really does a good job on all the bodies I've tried it on.  This way I can use the 20D with my A-S gear immediately I receive it (with or without grip) and when I get an L bracket for the 20D+grip I'll be able to use the P5 on those rare occasions when I work without the grip without investing money in a custom plate which I would rarely use.

The P5 is a great product.  Not quite the same as a custom bracket, but worth a look![/font]
