Compact flash Umbrella!
I had a hard time finding an umbrella this small for my purpose. The primary usage is for interior lighting of rental units, hand held and extremly flexible. I use this with a Manfrotto 233B flash bracket which itself is very flexable and also can be attached to a tripod when needed. The bracket holder is a give away.

Will Damage your flash
It will not hold an Sb-800 flash safely. You can tighted the pin that holds closes the hot-shoe clamp with all your might, untill your fingers go red and it still will not hold the flash in place. The flash will simply slide out. The hot shoe foot doesn't marry neatly with the grooved track on the clamp so the flash can only sit at the very end of the track. If you put it in the middle of the track the grooves don't grab the recessed area of the hot shoe foot at all. It is a bad design and I ...View full Review

Do not rely on this device to hold your flash securely. Along with this holder I purchased a canon speedlite 600ex-rt and used both at a wedding the following weekend. I had a hard time tightening the grip on the holder but thought it was secure. After some light use I picked up my stand to move it over a few feet and the flash just fell off and hit the floor breaking it. This holder is completely useless if it can not serve its primary purpose which is to HOLD the flash!
Wanted an umbrella that could travel... This umbrella is small enough to fit down the side of your backpack and with the stand mount easily sits on your tripod, great for on the go light control.
Since the umbrellas are small, the flash will not be centered. But you can get larger umbrellas later if you need them. The hot shoe clamps need to be reworked to move smoothly. Remove the thumb screw and clamp jaw and cut about 2mm from both springs. Add a #6 washer under the thumb screw and add some grease on the moving parts. Works great after that. Do not tighten any screws more than is required to hold things in position (just snug) or things won't last. The umbrellas are great and the system works really well for what it is and what it cost. I mount mine on boom mic stands and can get any angles I need.
Bought it on sale, because 2 of these cost the same as one bracket only. Now I have 2 20" umbrellas extra to play with.
To take picture. I can use it in a dark area and the picture come out with light. I can not find any thing worry with this product at all.
I've had great luck with all my other flashpoint accessories but this one was a total let down. I purchased as a small portable unit to complement a full size Manfrotto stand/umbrella combo. Unfortunately this one is flimsy and of cheap construction and feel. You really do get what you pay for. It's a shame I wasn't able to test this before the 30 day return policy ended. My flashpoint shoot through umbrella however has been fine. Stick with a Manfrotto swivel and just purchase a larger flashpoint umbrella instead of this combo.
It's a bit flimsy not sure how long it will last, and the umbrellas are tiny. You're better off just ordering the holder and getting umbrellas on your own.
I needed another umbrella for my LED lights and this was at a good price so I bought it. It turned out a little smaller than I thought it would be but it still works just fine. I could recommend it to someone else.
I bought this for location portraiture. I mount a small off camera flash horizontally in line with the umbrella for head and shoulder shots. It easy to move through narrow doors and around ceiling fans. My only complaint is that it didn't include a sheath/cover for the umbrella. Great product, fast shipping, Adorama is the best.
Great small umbrella for outside portraits. Its fast and simple, and its tiny so its perfect for transport. Make sure you ground your tripod legs, if its windy, it will blow right over.
