I purchased this camera bracket to replace my worn out stroboframe.This bracket was made with quality materials and has a silky smooth operation. Pros:The flash height is adjustable. Which means, when not in use, you can lower it and store it easily.It has a "foot stand" to support the camera/bracket in an upright position. You can set your camera down without having to lay it down. It's pretty stable too. You can mount the bracket itself to a tripod or monopod. This will keep your camera height consistent regardless of whether or not you're shooting a landscape style shot or a portrait style image. No more adjusting the tripod after you've adjusted the camera orientation. Silky smooth operation.Very solid and professional look and feel to it. Oh, and did I mention the silky smooth operation?!Quick release plates for camera to bracket and bracket to tripod. I had to order the quick release plate for camera to bracket separately though. Now the cons...The price. I did a lot of researching and checked out all the reviews that I could find on this. Although this bracket is probably one of the best you'll find on the market today, it's priced VERY high for what it actually is. I really think the MSRP could have been about half of what they've marked it at and they probably would have made a bigger profit in the long run. But you get what you pay for and if you want a quality, no "herky jerky" movement smooth as silk camera bracket, this is the one. Because of the price tag, I'm finding myself using this more than I did my old stroboframe. The palm grip.This was a thoughtful idea. They put this padded "grip" below the camera lens so that you could support your camera and bracket with your left hand while working the controls of the camera with your right. It works well. It's does provide a better place to support the whole system from. The only problem is that with it there, you can't reach your lens to adjust zoom or focus! My fingers aren't short by any means. I have average sized hands. With this in place, my fingertips can reach the lens and that's about it. Great idea, really. Just poorly placed. I had to take the palm grip off of mine so that I could use the bracket! If it wasn’t' removable, I would have returned the bracket just because of that. If you can't reach your lens, the bracket is useless regardless of how nice it is. Fortunately, for everyone, it's removable. In conclusion, if you're looking for a bracket you can use all day that's built like a tank, operates silky smoothly, looks very professional, consider this one. It's no doubt too expensive for a camera bracket. But again, if you want the top of the line Cadillac of camera brackets this is your bracket. You'll be eating beans and rice for a few months so that you can save the money needed to pay for it.I have no regrets in this purchase and would highly recommend it.[...]Top notch stuff, and it better be for the price.

Worth every Penny

By

from Las Vegas, Nevada  -  Pro Photographer

I was shooting very large convention here in Las Vegas and knew I had to work quickly, efficiently, and be ready at a moments notice. This bracket allowed me to accomplish this with ease style and FLEXIBILITY! I used to shoot casual events with off camera flash hand held which became cumbersome and tiring without a VAL. This bracket got the flash far enough off the camera and at the right "attitude" to accomplish this quickly without an assistant. The build quality is superb, it was carefully engineered and very easy to use. The only negative, if you will, was the price! It was not cheap! But after having used it i know that there is NOTHING better on the market. Highly recommended.

Custom Brackets Digital PRO M

By

from Round Rock, TX  -  Pro Photographer

Not intuitive to connect to the camera but once I had it installed it was easy to use and re-installation will not be a problem. Fairly expensive but definitely pro quality.

Good device for wedding photos

By

from Hayward, Ca.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I do lots of wedding or party type photography and I do take lots of portriat type shots. To avoid shadows the flash needed to remain in the upright position. The device operates very smoothly and it well built. It is very expensive for what it does. I guess I have to eat veggies for few months. The enclosed instructions are very generic and useless. But one can put together the various pieces intuitively.

I have recommended this bracket to many.

By

from Houston, TX  -  Semi-Professional

I have a touch of arthritis, so the left handed grip really helps me support the camera. I feel secure knowing that my flash and camera are not going to end up crashing to the floor (as with less stable brackets.) The swivel/arc allows me to move from horizontal to vertical with great ease, and I especially like that the flash always remains in the same spot, above the camera lense. I love it and so do my colleagues.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Jorge A  Is it compatible with the Nikon D7000 and my SB 800?
ROBERT L  Yes I would think so, it is a universal bracket
Jorge A  Thank you for your answer. I just want to be sure that it would work in TTL as well as manual modes. Please advise.
Traci L  What type of flash would be ideal for this bracket? With a Canon 50D Camera?
SRIDHAR C  Traci, I'd say since you have a Canon 50D and are considering the flagship bracket (I own this very bracket), you are better off going with the flagship flash: 580 EX II. In case you are on a budget, the YN-565 EX is a good alternative. You will also need a Flashgun Cable to connect the Camera's flash hotshoe to the flash on the top of the bracket. Canon sells the OC-E3 off camera flash cord. Again, if you are on a budget, I suggest going with the FC-311 cord. It is long and so you'll end up looping it around the bracket a couple of times. But it comes in real handy if you don't have a wireless transmitter and need to move the flash off-camera a good distance from you. The bracket is really lightweight for me and I like the fact that I can get it to stand on a table by extending its legs. A lot of folks end up putting their camera in awkward positions since there is nothing to support the camera when it is not in use. I was recently shooting portraits and weddings in Sydney, Australia during my brief stay and the other photographers spent time looking at my bracket in admiration since the product is not manufactured in Australia. The Custom Bracket brand is only manufactured in USA and not sold locally in Australia. I know this was more information than what you asked, hope this feedback helps!
Traci L  Thank you. This was very helpful.
Therese M  is a battery grip required on your camera for this bracket to fit?
ANTHONY B  No, a battery grip is not required but it makes it way more convient to shoot with.
