Need some pointers as to where I could source a L bracket for my D90, if anyone can help. Have tried the Manfrotto one, but can't access the cable release plug, also can't use remote trigger as I need to plug it in into the socket. If anyone knows of, or has one tucked away in a box somewhere, let me know please.

The Kirk universal small L-bracket should work, with the LBA-1 spacer block to give some space for the cable. As this is a universal plate, some filing or using a Dremel might be necessary to access the socket. The LBA-1 will reinforce the area where you have removed some metal if you need to do so.

 

The Kirk BL-D90 is out of production, but you might find a used one somewhere. I think ShenZhen ShunDa still make knockoffs that can be found on Aliexpress or Wish. You will still need the LBA-1 or similar to use the L-plate fully with a cable attached.

 

A Novoflex QPL-Vertikal has enough room for adjustment to clear a mounted cable without a spacer, but they are big on a gripless body.

KEH currently is showing a result for the Kirk BL-D90 bracket. As Peter says, you'll still need the LBA-1 Spacer Block.
