"Speedligth bracket - Strobofram Quick flip 350"



Dear Fellow Nikonians,

After reading the experience shared, I decide to purchase a Strobofram Quick flip 350.

Does any one know the Camera shops in Scarborough area in Canada that carry this bracket.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Admittedly I have no experience with the quick-flip.

I read on a Nikon mail list, someone say when flip the flash it kind of risky game, if he buy a new bracket, he would have choose the camera-flip, just FYI

DW,

I only know of one reputable camera dealer in the Scarborough area, it's Merkle Camera. Try a search for them on Google, I'm sure you'll find it. Otherwise, I would suggest a trip downtown to Henry's or Downtown Camera or even Vistek, they'll be likely to have one.
Keep in mind that you'll also need the SC 17 off camera cord to hook your flash to when on the bracket.

Hi Fellow Nikonians,

When I use the flash bracket, should I adjust the Flash angle as the speedlight is now farther away from my F100.

For example, when I use a 35mm lens, should I manually set SB-28 to 28mm or to tilt down the flash head angle to marco? Will the answer be different if I shoot a close object?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

If you check closely there are two "straight-forward" angles, one for up-close close-ups, one for objects ahead.
If for macro, make your "wide-angle diffuser" come in front of the speedlight lens to reduce the power somewhat.
The focal length on the SB-28 will change automatically depending on the lens used. No need to set it manually.
