RPS Studio RS04240N10 Flash Bracket

I use mine for taking school pictures; prom, homecoming, graduation and such. I use a Nikon Speedlight with an external battery (Quantumm) and a Graslon Insight Diffuser on the flash. It comes with whatever remote release connection you need (two different ones are currently available for Nikon) and the off-camera flash cable. If you have more than one brand of camera, you can buy different remote switches (say, for Canon or Sony) and easily switch between them. I happened to have an SC-29 Ni...

I use mine for taking school pictures; prom, homecoming, graduation and such. I use a Nikon Speedlight with an external battery (Quantumm) and a Graslon Insight Diffuser on the flash. It comes with whatever remote release connection you need (two different ones are currently available for Nikon) and the off-camera flash cable. If you have more than one brand of camera, you can buy different remote switches (say, for Canon or Sony) and easily switch between them. I happened to have an SC-29 Nikon off camera cable, which provides AF illumination from the camera hot shoe mount, so I don't use the one that came with the unit, but the remote cord works just fine; it is very comfortable and can be moved to either side of the unit very easily. The mount for the flash can be extended quite high and angled up or down as you choose. The mechanism to switch the camera from horizontal to vertical is smooth and very intuitive, and has a positive lock you can use to keep it from moving at an unwanted time. I abandoned my stroboframe for this unit and never looked back.

Skipped small details, painful

Overall, this bracket is as described, and fits the bill for economy flash brackets. However, some things keep me from rating this highly. 1) the shutter release plug angles directly into the supporting hand for portrait mode. It frequently will work loose and thus you lose some pictures. 2)the shutter release trigger sticks out too far for either my index finger or my thumb. Awkward holding of the petite handle for the big-finger trigger. 3) The screw for said trigger interferes with the rel...

Only about 50 thousandths of an inch would clear it up. 4) Most PAINFUL is the tiny point for the flash shoe lock. 18 hours after my first gig with this, my finger still hurts from trying to pull up the pin. I'm going to solder on a pinhead.

Good but not perfect

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

So far everything is working well. It is easy to set up, adjust, and take down. It also gives plenty of options for where you set the flash. It seems well made and no major issues so far. The big complaint I have is you can not "lock down" things. For example if you let go of the handle and hold the camera it starts to flip. Also the 10 pin connector leaves a something to be desired. Getting the camera plate off can take 3 hands if you do not have a good place to set the camera down Overall it works well and is not too bulky to carry around. It could use a few improvements but none of them are major.

cool idea, not well executed

By

from Lansing, MI  -  Professional

The idea behind this flash bracket is excellent, the manufacturing of the product however is sub-par. I shoot with a Nikon D300 and the bracket has a hard time staying in the horizontal position, it keeps wanting to partially rotate to the vertical position. I do not have the problems that other people have had with the shutter release pin or the hotshoe pin. My main complaints on this are the fit and finish is weak, the cords for the hotshoe and shutter release get in the way of the viewfinder occasionally and there is a severe lack of competent instructions. This bracket isn't bad for the money, considering the amount of adjustability and control you can obtain from this, and as photographers, we know it's all about the control.

Questions about this item:

Jennifer H  Can this be mountable on a tripod? If so - Which tripod will hold its weight?
David A  Is the standard thread mount on the bottom of the screw or on the metal plate itself?
Benito T  Would it be compatible with Nikon D7100?
Benito T  I do have a nikon d7100 camera and I would like to know if possible to use this bracket on it?
BRIAN J  This bracket is really quite nice, but you need a different connector from the 10 pin that comes with this one. The correct switch is available for this bracket, and is easily changed on the bracket with I believe only one screw. The remote you need for the D7100 is a more flat connector; kind of reminiscent of a mini-USB connector, if you are familiar with them. You might want to call an Adorama rep to make sure you order this bracket with the correct remote. It is a very nice bracket. The camera locks into the vertical position very solidly in addition to the spring switch that must be depressed to move from horizontal to vertical. The controls are easy to reach and work smoothly.
