"Flash bracket"


Stockton-on-Tees, GB
          

I'm after a flash bracket for use with my D700 and D300 - I have 2 speedlights, the SB900 and SB800. Does anyone have a particular bracket to recommend, bearing in mind that it must be available in the UK (as that's where I live)?

With my cameras, I have the accessory grips installed. I use an Custom Brackets CB Junior.

Hi Lesley,

The best Flash Bracket that I have found is the RRS Wedding Pro Flash Bracket. They are not inexpensive and require an L-Bracket to mount on the camera which is a significant additional cost. They are extremely strong and fold small enough to fit in your pocket. Really Right Stuff is based in California USA but sell world wide.
I also have a Stroboframe Pro-T that works well on Pro Bodies or the D300 / D700 w/MB-D10. The Press-T would be a better fit if you are not using an MB-D10. The issue with the Stroboframe brackets is that they are large and do not fold making them difficult to pack.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks, Anthony and Marty - I now have some idea of what I'm looking at. I use the MB-10 grip with the D700 so would need a bracket that would accommodate that. Off to find stockists in the UK!

+1 on the Stroboframe Quick Flip. I use a TTL cord or a cheap radio. Simple, cheap, effective.

PS - I mount mine backwards so the flash is above the camera in portrait orientation. I.e., the logo is facing me.
