Works!

By

from Florida  -  Pro Photographer

Very solid, works as advertised. Some have remarked that the umbrella hole is too small. Actually, you just need to give it a good, firm push to pop it in. Once in, the umbrella shaft slides as necessary, with plenty of friction to keep it in place. I like to mount it on a monopod so my assistant can maneuver with it. Unfortunately, the thumbscrew used to tighten the flash mount on the side gets in the way. Went to the hardware store and replaced that thumbscrew with one that has a smaller profile. (Thumbscrew has an M4 thread.)

Good Multiple Mount / Needs Add'l Part

By

from Raleigh, NC  -  Pro Photographer

Good: allows easy attachment of 3 cold shoe devices (in my case 2 wireless lav mic receivers and a shotgun mic) and it's strong. Not so good but you can work around it: the nut on the very bottom that attaches to the camera cold shoe does NOT screw all the way down (a poor design). BUT you can put an inexpensive garden hose washer or similar rubber washer between the nut and the shoe, and it tightens down just fine. OR you can buy a cold shoe with screw adapter to replace this one (http://www.adorama.com/BR1VISLCSTA.html). This is what is should have had in the first place. You can find these for less if you shop around. Bottom line: This is a strong and effective multi-bracket mount. The cold shoe connection has to be addressed, but for this low price is probably worth the little extra effort to make it work properly. I didn't use the umbrella hole, so I have no comment on that.

Great for video. Able to put 2 lights and a mircophone made my shoot very easy.

Great for what it is.

By

Solid flash and stand connections. Had no alignment issues like other reviewers. A perfect way to put multiple hotshoe strobes on top of a light stand. The only drawback for me (and the reason I only gave 4 stars) is that the umbrella hole is small and friction-fastened rather than fastened with a screw. Hex-shank umbrellas are not likely to work well - in particular if you are inclined to choke in on the umbrella to change the quality of light. In can live with that drawback, especially for this price. But it is still a little annoying.

Great for the price

By

from Denver, CO  -  Pro Photographer

I use this in video production to attach a LED light, wireless lav, and a shotgun mic to my dslr. Great piece of kit for a great price. You have to tighten the knobs on the bracket itself to make accessories secure, you cannot just slide accessory in and tighten on the accessory itself, not a big deal in my opinion. I had a hard time keeping it secure to my camera without a wiggle at first, but to solve the problem I took one of the two tightening screws used to secure the bracket to the camera, and relocated one of them to the top, above to the inside of the square and that solved the problem.

Very hard to get the umbrella in

By

from Dallas, Tx.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It will hold three flashes as advertised. It is sturdy nad steady. However, getting the umbrella through the hole is very difficult. I removed the screw and the metal holder, but that makes it too loose. So I put it back in, but I can barely get the umbrella in the hole and not through totally. So I would only use these when I have no other alternatives.

Alternative Use of Tri-Shoe

By

from Tow, TX  -  Pro Photographer

Had trouble keeping Pocket Wizards attached to OCF. This solved my problem and is more secure than velcro or straps.
