I will be doing a wedding anniversary shoot in a couple of weeks and I have been debating the purchase of a Really Right Stuff WPF-1 Wedding Pro Flash Bracket. I've watched the promo video on the RRS website. It certainly looks sturdy and versatile enough. My Speedlight is an SB-900. The price of the flash bracket and "L" bracket for my D300 are within my budget and they are readily available from RRS. Haven't checked the on-line camera stores yet.
Does anyone own one or have you used one? I'd appreciate your opinions about its quality, ease of operation, etc.

I'ne used a variety of flash brackets over the years. Currently I use the RRS Portrait Perfect bracket, which I like much better than any other I have tried. The Wedding Pro bracket came out after I got my bracket. I think I would have gotten it had it been available. My previous bracket was the Stroboframe Press-T, which flips the flash like the Wedding Pro. I liked that bracket, but it was bulky and did not fit in my bag. Often when I needed it - I did not have it with me. It was just too hard to carry. I am a big fan of RRS products. Either RRS bracket will fold flat and fit in my camera bag. That alone is worth it in my view. I keep an L plate on the body anyway.
One advantage of the Portrait Perfect model is that the belt slot on the soft case of my SD-8A or WT-4A slips onto the MPR-CL rail that is part of it, effectively mounting the SD-8A/WT-4A on the camera.
