I have a D600 with an L-Bracket attached. I also have a Vello Shutterboss II wired intervalometer. There's no practical way to use them together since the cord goes straight into the port and interferes with the vertical arm of the bracket. Even if I modified the bracket to allow the cord to pass through, the cord would get in the way of mounting the camera vertically. Does anyone know of a right-angle adapter for the DC2 port so I can plug the intervalometer in and allow the L-Bracket to mount closer to the camera? It seems like this would be a common issue for landscape photographers using those cameras with the DC2 port but I haven't found anything regarding this issue.

From what I understand, the Kirk L-bracket allows you to open the port door but the cord would still be in the way of mounting the camera vertically.
If needs must, ya gotta do what you gotta do.
However, I suspect that for some of us who have found that a client wanted xyz, we were forced to simply find a way to get the job done, whether it was comfortable or not. But, when driven by an outside demand, I have found I can work in an unfamiliar manner and eventually get comfortable with what is initially an awkward situation.
Hope a solution is found which is acceptable for you.
Chop the GPS end off the cable and replace it with a 2.5mm stereo jack like here:
Ironheart: My intervalometer doesn't accept a 2.5mm jack. I wouldn't mind replacing it with one that did but I've never spliced wires more complicated than household wiring so I'll have to think about it. This is definitely the closest I've seen to what I'm looking for, though. Thanks a lot!
I just slide the L bracket to the left on my D7100 because the door doesn't fit through the L bracket. It worked fine until I got the D750. Now I just use the D750 as it fits but I can also use Wi-Fi and an app instead of all that. I don't use longer than 30 seconds so the internal intervalometer is good for me. If it wasn't, I'd use Digicam Control via Wi-Fi.
spraynpray: I thought about reversing the L bracket but haven't tried it yet. I know, I know... "> I'm planning to get a D750 soon but Wi-Fi won't help me since I don't have, and have no plans to get, a smart phone or any other such device.
From using it as a navigator to get me to a spot first time there, to finding stars or checking moonphase to make sure the light's right to checking the sun's track, to weather changes, to places to eat etc. etc. I now really wouldn't want to be without one.
I like the longer coiled cable. The short one will need a 1/8 mini M to Fe extension and provides another bit to loose or fail.
Happy Shooting Thanks R
