I've been shooting more and more with a 200-400 and bought a better beamer flash extender, but am coming to the conclusion I really need to get the flash more above the camera. Also would prefer not to have it rotate with the camera into portrait mode.

Easy, e.g. the RRS brackets are perfect.

But they are $240. So are most of their competitors, at least in the same ballpark.

OK... i spend a lot of money on camera equipment, but it's a relatively non-precision bracket of metal, it's not electronic...

Am I missing something?

are there other alternatives, something perhaps not as pricy?

Or is this just what it is?
