    Most tripod heads allow you to shoot in portrait orientation. If it has a 1/4 inch screw, it'll fit you rebel. The link you provided looks like it has bogen's own quick release plate mount. Do you own a Bogen/Manfrotto head?

    I think you're talking about an L plate or an L bracket.... can't remember off the top of my head. However, you might be limited by your "cheapo wal mart tripod". These plates are generally (again, I think) for more prosumer and up tripods and heads. Someone will correct me (please) if I'm wrong.

    For the kind of money they sell those for, I'd get a chunk of steel or aluminum and make an "L" bracket, drill 2 holes and get a 1/4 thumb screw. Wouldn't take more than 15 minutes to make. Get everything at Home Depot.
