An “L” bracket is used to quickly switch the orientation of a camera on a tripod head from horizontal (landscape) to vertical (portrait) mode. In addition, in portrait mode, it puts the center of gravity of the camera directly over the tripod otherwise with a ball head, the camera is off to one side!
