About Photoflex

Shoe Mount Multiclamp allows you to attach your on-camera flash to a lightstand and add an umbrella or softbox. The Multiclamp makes it possible to raise and tilt your light - something that is not possible when your flash is mounted directly to a lightstand. Your flash can also be mounted horizontally or vertically and, by using three clamps, two flashes can be mounted together for more lighting power. Moving your flash away from your camera and adding an umbrella or softbox will give you even, diffused light that is flattering to your subjects.

reasonable price and it works great

I use this to connect my Speedlite flash adapter, lightstand and shoot-through umbrella together. It works great and is quite flexible. I'm very happy with this little gadget overall.

I use this to connect my Speedlite flash adapter, lightstand and shoot-through umbrella together. It works great and is quite flexible. I'm very happy with this little gadget overall. Have used it for softening flash everywhere from photographing people and pets to museum exhibits and making stock photos. I did have some trouble finding this on the Adorama web site, because I didn't know exactly what these are called. I do have a couple suggestions for improvements: It would have been nice if there was a hook, or some kind of mount to safely hold a wireless flash trigger. I currently use a rubber band to do that, but it is an accident waiting to happen as rubber bands get brittle in cold weather. Maybe velcro would be a better choice. It would also have been nice if there was a small anvil or something at the end of the screw that tightens against the umbrella shaft. The end of the clamping screw does scratch up the umbrella shaft a bit. If that kind of thing bothers you, it should be possible to wrap the umbrella shaft with something to protect it, but that's too much trouble for my $20 umbrella.

replace the cold shoe, otherwise good

The construction is pretty good, however, I would recommend getting stroboframe brackets or frio cold shoes to replace the original cold shoe. With the original cold shoe, you have to tighten down the lock on the flash and tighten down on the screw to get a tight fit. Stroboframe brackets make it an easy, one step process.

Simple portable lighting solution

By

I use this clamp with Nikon speed lights for lightweight, low power-demand location portraiture. It uses light box brackets I already own. It saves me from hauling Dynalites/heads/powerpacks/cables, medium weight stands, and extension cords. Combined with light stands and Radio remotes it also eliminate cords

photoflex shoe mount

By

I used this for indoor portrait photo sessions. I also use this for my macro shooting work. It is perfect for the price, you don't need all the extra manfroto parts to make it work. I also used pieces of it for other stands and lights ... Will continue to use and purchase, as my light equipment grows.

Sturdy, Flexible and it works well

By

This multiclamp is great for those times when additional small strobes are necessary in multi-light situations.

cold shoe could be better

By

great mount, only complaint is the cold shoe adaptor. the only thing holding the flash (or remote adaptor in my case) in the shoe is a tiny set screw. I purchased 2 of these and one stripped out within the first couple of uses.

So far so good.

Very well priced, I like the product but I haven't had a chance to really get it out in a commercial environment. All my tests have been preliminary, but I don't doubt that it'll work well.

Great Flash Mount

By

This shoe mount is a very well made product. It attaches securely to a standard light stand top, adjusts easily and tightens down perfectly. I comes with two high quality brass attachments and an aluminum shoe, although that shoe may short fire some flashes and may need to be insulated. I use it with a Nikon SB-600 flash and replace the supplied show with a Nikon sync cord. I also use a 32" umbrella with it and the entire assembly is strong and reliable.

Great Product, Great Customer Service!

By

First, this is a great product. It is well built and functions just as it claims to. But what won me over more than anything was there excellent customer service.When I received the Multi-Clamp the little thumb screw that is meant to secure the shoe mount flash to the unit was shorter than is should be. It looked as though the screw was broken off. I contacted Photoflex's customer service through email, and heard back in less than a day. My contact was [...]. She asked if I could take some pictures so that she could get a better idea of what I was talking about. I sent them to her, and she got back to me immediately with a request for the address she needed to send the replacement to. She was quick, courteous, and seemed to care that I had a problem. I really appreciated that. And it was just a little screw! This leads me to believe had my problem been more serious, it would have been dealt with in the same way. Highly recommend this product and this company.
