I know a lot of questions are asked about this and it seems very much a personal choice but I just can't decide.

I cannot try the brackets beforehand in person without a bit of a drive so I am first seeking advice.

I have been leaning towards the stroboframe press t or the custom brackets cb junior. I don't want something too large and too goofy looking. I'm sorry I just find some of those really big brackets a little too much for me...

I like the idea of being able to change the orientation of the flash over the lens when doing vertical shots. I tend to do a lot of verticals so I like this option.

I mainly plan on using the bracket on the camera when doing candids and quick grab shots.

I find the handle on the cb junior seems to be in a useless spot. It appears as if it is only to carry your camera with?

I already own a sc29 off camera cable and I like the flexibility of using a bracket to keep the flash off camera so I am not slinging the flash over my shoulder on a dangling cable. Or do I want to attach and reaatach the cable when needed if not using a bracket.

I am wondering if there is perhaps another option to using off camera flash that isn't as bulky as a bracket?

These are just some random thoughts any advice would be appreciated...


thanks
