Does anyone know if a large fixed back horizontal format Chamonix camera can be racked over or put on a bracket to use for vertical shots?

I think Lotus makes an L-bracket for turning big cameras sideways.

I've set up my Korona 7x17" for verticals by adding an additional tripod screw and Arca-Swiss type plate so that I can turn it sideways using the tripod head without the camera twisting on the head (you need a strong tripod head for this, obviously). I usually try to counterweight the tripod leg opposite the camera.
