Nessary but way too expensive.

This little item is one I need almost everywhere I employ external flash units. It isn't as well designed as it could be--no plastic please. And I feel exploited by the price. There should be many more and better options. I'm sure eventually Really-Right-Stuff or someone else will get into making better flash supports, etc.

difficult to use and slips

Very dissapointed. I ordered two of these to use as a mount atop my Superclamp/miniballhead and also a lightstand/umbrella adapter. It is solid, but the little red dot is too small, slippery, round to tighten it any good. And when it is tightened, it still can slip because 2 metal smooth surfaces will equal slippage with just the right vibration. I'd rather use my Speedlight stand as a mount beacause it is able to lock, and is much quicker to use(no need to twist a puny knob to tighten; just ...

Perfect cold shoe

By

This is a really secure shoe mount for manually operated speedlights mounted to light stands with either 3/8 or 1/4 inch threads.

A great bracket

last year a friend of mine gave me one of these brackets.It worked so well that I've gone out and refitted all my brackets with Stroboframes.

Bracket shoe works.

Attaches to my older Stroboframe. A little sharpe on the edges compared to the current model by Tiffen. But it works fine and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Adorama shipped quickly for minimum cost. I'd recommend it!

Sets the Standard

By

from Redwood City, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

If you want to attach your shoe-mount flash to something else - usually a 1/4 tripod or light stand stud - get this. It's perfectly made and designed and much better than it looks. Has that classy feel I've only seen from brands like RRS, Kirk, Acratech, Novoflex, Arca Swiss...

Very useful

By

from California  -  Semi-pro Photographer

These a great value for the money and very easy to use. I attach these to some flexible arms and are great to position a flash in difficult locations.

Simple, sturdy and a good value

By

from Seattle  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This cold shoe adapter is well designed, well made and sturdy. Those attributes make it a good value because I know I can depend on it and not have to replace it any time soon.

Great little item that converts your light stand or tripod to a hot shoe mount.

Don't buy this! It's NOT Stroboframe!

By

from Sonoma, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Don't waste your money on this. First of all, it's NOT a Stroboframe product, it's a Flashpoint product which is probably why it's so cheap. But the cheap price turns into a total loss because the design makes it unusable. The thumbscrew thread is too short so the clamp won't open far enough to fit either of my Vivitar or Sunpak flashes without popping off. At that point the non-captive springs pop out and get lost. How could Flashpoint design this and not have it fit a Vivitar 285, one of the most common flashes out there? It seems that some customers have gotten the real Stoboframe product here in the past, but this is NOT it.
