Cheap nuts, good bracket

When I received this bracket I immediately went to set it up with my Canon Rebel XTi, with a 135 zoom, and my Canon EX580 speedlite. The adjustment of the bracket was too loose - the flash kept falling over. So I followed the instructions for tightening the nuts on the bracket - and three of the four wouldn't tighten. They just spun around and around. The nuts used are plastic, and three of the four evidently were stripped out when they were installed at the factory. I've replaced those with...

When I received this bracket I immediately went to set it up with my Canon Rebel XTi, with a 135 zoom, and my Canon EX580 speedlite. The adjustment of the bracket was too loose - the flash kept falling over. So I followed the instructions for tightening the nuts on the bracket - and three of the four wouldn't tighten. They just spun around and around. The nuts used are plastic, and three of the four evidently were stripped out when they were installed at the factory. I've replaced those with four nylon-sleeved lock nuts I picked up at the hardware store, made the necessary adjustments, and the bracket works fine now. Just seems for the price that they could use quality hardware in the construction.

Fairly disappointing

Very disappointed in this unit. I liked the concept of the camera rotating but in reality, it doesn't work well. Everything is fine if you're holding the camera body in your right hand and the flash bracket in your left. The problem, however, comes when you move your left hand off the bracket to zoom the lens.

Very disappointed in this unit. I liked the concept of the camera rotating but in reality, it doesn't work well. Everything is fine if you're holding the camera body in your right hand and the flash bracket in your left. The problem, however, comes when you move your left hand off the bracket to zoom the lens. The weight of the bracket (now unsupported) makes the camera begin to flip unintentionally. I attempted to tighten the various nuts but all appeared stripped. They would just spin and never get tight. Even if they did tighten, I suspect you'd have to make it so tight that it would no longer be flip easily. I quickly returned the Stroboframe and bought the Omega FlashFlip H.O.T. (FF400) and it works much better. It allows your hand to be on top when shooting portrait style and you'll never have to worry about it becoming too lose. The FF400 seems to be a much better design.

Not sure

By

from PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is my first experience with a flash bracket so I am not sure how I like this. When I have the camera in a horizontal shooting view, the camera does not stay steady. I wish there was a way to lock it into place. That would limit quick switching to vertical though. Maybe I am missing something. At this time I would not recommend it to a friend.

Four Plus Stars - Improves indoor flash

Might work better with wire connection from flash to camera. When using a remote it gets a little clunky

Won't work with xtra battery pack

By

from Milford, Pennsylvania  -  Film Professional

Not able to use with my 50D Canon because it had the extra battery pack on the bottom. The space under the bar was not great enough and I had to return it. Would work fine if you juat have the standard camera configuration.

Not recommended

By

from Fort Collins, CO

I am a wedding photographer and wanted to purchase a camera rotating camera bracket. I don't like the flash flip brackets because they are uncomfortable on my wrist after a full day of shooting. After receiving the Stroboframe bracket I did some test shooting. To my dismay every time my camera was flipped vertically and I took my left hand off the bracket to zoom the lens the flash would start wandering to the left. I tightened the bracket and it seemed to remedy the problem. I took the bracket with me to a wedding. After almost no use it was loose again and my flash started wandering. I tightened it again to no avail. I shot the entire wedding zooming with my right hand. After returning from the wedding I sent the bracket back and purchased a Custom Bracket. I love it. Yes it was much more expensive, but worth every single penny.

Will not work for Canon 5D II with grip

By

from Houston, TX  -  Tech Savvy

This Stroboframe CameraFlip seems to work well horizontally. However, when shooting vertically, this bracket is not tall enough to accommodate the combination of a Canon 5D Mark II + battery grip + hot shoe. Also, the recomended anti-twist plate would not allow you to open the door of the battery grip, unless you remove your camera from the bracket.

Works well with 30D

By

from Plano, TX  -  Professional

I use this for single flash indoor photography, combined with a diffuser (Canon 30D and 580 EX flash). It eliminates red eye, and reduces the harsh shadow of single flash. It can be a little difficult to mate the mounting screw to the bottom of the camera, but once accomplished I've not had any problem with the camera shifting on the mounting plate. Don't forget to order a hot shoe cord to accompany this product.

Questions about this item:

NICHOLAS B  Will a Canon 50d with the battery grip (makes it larger than the plain 50d) fit on this braket and will it flip as easily as the bare camera body?
FRED D  It didn't work with my DII camera so I through it away. Very disappointing
NICHOLAS B  Thanks Fred. I came to the same conclusion, but luckily I had a borrowed Stroboframe to test. I bought a Custom Bracked from the company in Cleveland. I works great.
