    Plastic body, metal top

    posted by daihard on 04/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Function/Price = Excellent Holds umbrella's securely in any position. Small, light, simple. Metal plates on the upper half for the flash, umbrella holder is hardened plastic. Adjusting the angle is aided with locking teeth.
    Cons:
    Hardened plastic for the lower base (but handles most loads without stressing any of the parts.)

    Bad design

    posted by thetron on 11/17/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Locks good to a standard lightstand. - Cold shoe has groves so that the pins on the flash can't touch the metal. - A spring secures the umbrella. - hole for the umbrella is big enough to fit larger umbrellas.
    Cons:
    - The cold shoe is way to long - Cold shoue fastens with a screw positioned in the middle of the shoe, but a standard flash sh...

    Not bad!

    posted by Sodapop on 03/24/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Cheap. - Reasonable quality. - Reasonably compact and light. - Flash shoe lockable, so radio flash receivers like the cheap Cactus can be securely locked. - Swivel mechanism uses some simple metal gearing so it doesn't slip beyond your adjustment.

    Pros:
    This device is really well constructed and it`s very useful. It`s very cheap, and pretty safe for the flashes and umbrellas it will be holding. The shoe is made from aluminum and it looks really strong. It won`t make any shortcuts because I`ve measured myse...
    Cons:
    It makes a strange noise when you pull the head up or down. That`s the part that fells cheap. It would be great that it came wi...

    Perfect for non-pro

    posted by mostsb on 01/16/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This flash swivel is nice and cheap. It works well with my Nikon sb-25 and sb-28 flashes. That hotshoe-adapter is good, it´s easy to fasten flashes. Also two bottom screws are easy to fasten. I like that spring in umbrella mount, there is no need to us...
    Cons:
    That clear finished screw is too little, and would be nice if umbrella mount has a little angle so flash would point to center ...
