Most Liked Positive Review

 

I think I like them :)

I just got mine in today and have set them up with a 45" Westcott umbrella. So far the first con that I don't like is that fact that the umbrella is in a fixed location it can turn up down or anything which is disappointing. Other than that the holder seems very sturdy and adaptable. I plan on using both for the life of each. The hot shoe seems pretty sturdy also.

Not universal 4 Sony

It would be great if it worked on my Sony flash:( wich it would if ) I had the mini stand part to my flash with out that it has been useless to me. So it's not truly a universal...

Not Heavy Duty Enough

By

I bought this to use with my new 7' Parabolic Umbrella and it can't with stand the weight of the umbrella and flashes i attached to it. Luckily I had a Manfrotto swivel holder handy that could handle the load.

You get what you pay for!

By

It broke the very first time I used it. It was windy and the stand with the umbrella felt and that was it for the swivel holder. Since it is made of plastic, it broke clean in two pieces.

Precisely what I needed

By

This thing is made like a tank! I have the ability to crank one of these little beauties out in my basement, but not at this price. This baby is so darn flexible you won't believe it. What I was using was garbage compared to this unit. You have total control of the amount of slippage you need for adjustment. Just take a good look at the quality of the brass inserts - WOW. Thanks Adorama - you did it again.

Solid Mount

By

Pretty good mount, do note that it is mostly plastic, a very hard plastic. It works as it should, it is very good quality, and a bit on the bulky side.

Solid construction

Does the job and well made.

Good to have one in your bag

By

It is very easy to use, and comes with a cold shoe for mounting a flash, which is very useful whenever you don't have an assistant with you. Seems very solidly built

Good enough bracket

By

Well enough built bracket. I felt the screw which holds umbrella shaft is a bit weak for my 7 footer. Otherwise a good bracket.

Questions about this item:

WAYNE F  It's difficult for me to tell from the detail description, so I have to ask: Do either of the adapters included with this holder allow you to mount it to a tripod instead of a light stand? Thanks!
RICK C  Yes, the adaptor with female threads at each end, will allow you to mount the Umbrella bracket to a tripod and not just a light stand. The female threads are two different sizes to accommodate either end of the threaded pin/bolt on the tripod head.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ART G  I bought this unit after reading some online reviews. I wanted a convenient and inexpensive Umbrella Bracket/Flash Mount that also gets good marks for construction quality.
Shopper  Is this compatible with Minolta/Sony speed lights?
RAFAEL Z  Hi there! I recently acquired this item and I used it with a Yongnuo Flash, a Vivitar flash and a Nikon flash and it worked fine with all of them. The shoe mount seems "universal" and I don't see any reason why It would not work with Sony or any other brand. I hope this helps. Good luck, Rafael Z
