It's a bracket... it's cheap... it works

I bought this mainly for use as my macro rig. Used Adorama's shoe mount ball head for the flash. This bracket serves its purpose well. The grip could be better though (made my own padded cover). If you don't want the camera to turn on the bracket, use an anti-twist plate.... pretty simple.

Useless as flash bracket

In addition to other complaints, when bracket is on the left side of the camera, leaving the right hand for the shutter and other controls, the flash faces backwards.

Great product

By

I bought this to mount my gopro with external mic (videomic pro). It works perfectly, the handle is big enough for you to have a good grip and light enough for you to hold it for a long time (at least as long as your gopro batteries last). No complain, it works for what I need it to and good quality for the price.

works as expected

By

I mounted this on a Nikon D-610 so I could use my current Olympus flash and drive is as a slave. Fits the camera body nicely and is small enough to fit into my bag.

Handles nicely

By

from Conroe, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great accessory handle for the money and just overall. Easily allows for multiple hotshoe accessories to be attached without much difficulty. I would recommend attaching your camera first, as the bottom tripod mount screw can be tricky as it slides through the movable slot. It holds my Nikon D7000 plus battery grip quite well while also accepting a video light and external microphone on the side mounts. Allows microphone to be far enough away from lens noise(silent wave motors still make noise on video if mic is close enough) to cut down focus noise substantially, though not completely, but that also depends on your mic choice. All in all I'd buy this product again and another for a friend.

good design, well-made, very low-priced

By

from Denver  -  Photo Enthusiast

Rigid yet light-weight bracket, very comfortable grip with a slight--just the right amount--of stickiness. The second shoe is great, allowing both a microphone and light to be mounted on one bracket.

Useless

There is no way to secure a flash unit to this bracket rendering it completely useless. I returned it.

This Product is awesome

By

from Sanger, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this with my GoPro Hero2. The L-Bracket gives me a stable way to hold my GoPro and with the shoe mounts I am going to be able to attach an external microphone. The L-Bracket is light and the ruber grip makes it nice to hold.

Quality and Affordability

from Peoria, Illinois  -  Casual Photographer

I have some friends that are "Ghost Hunters" that use this at the old Hospital in the area. It allows them the ability to hold the camera with one hand and other equipment with the other hand easily.

Questions about this item:

Jon R  Hi can this be used with a canon t4i dslr and on a tripod?
ERIC B  Sure. Just keep in mind that the "hot shoes" are metal and potentially could short out a flash attachment. I use mine with a video light which has a plastic (non conductive) base.
Jon R  do you use led video lights?
