Good cheap bracket – Universal Plastic Swivel Flash Bracket Reviews

posted by tvrdak on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap. Looks like I will use it until Ill lose it somewhere, because I dont think I need something more expensive
Cons:
Its plasticy, not so sturdy to hold gigantic flasheads obviously. In the hole for umbrela stick, there is a screw that is supposed to "lock" it in possition. And it may damage your umbrella a little bit, if you have cheap umbrella from here. Just a small dent, nothing bad. Also, where you put your flashes hotshoe leg, sometimes its not really tight, even if you use the screw. (might be because of Flash, not this, also its easily fixable)
Other:
I'm using it regularly with my umbrellas bought from here. And it works exactly as you would expect for its price. If you are using it with (especially cheap YN460) flashguns and not so heavy umbrellas (nothing like 2m in diameter), you will be fine.
Bottomline:
Great for photographers on the budget
