Just starting out I wanted something that will fill my needs for now and this is a great combo for that.
I bought this for the umbrella and holder to attach it and a speedlite to a light-stand. The bracket is mainly metal and tilts, too. The combination works well, and made it through an entire event even though some kids knocked it over a few times. But I did need to replace the umbrella afterwards due to those falls. The bracket is fine and I still use it. I tried the Micro Apollo softbox, too, and you can use it even without attaching the velcro to the flash. The umbrella folds up very compactly and has a plastic cover on the piece that expands/collapses it so you don't pinch your fingers. Nice touch. I haven't opened the reflector, but it's nice to have.
