Robert you need to do some reading over on the general gear forum
It allows you to rotate your camera to the portrait position while keeping the weight directly above the tripod. It has nothing to do with a flash bracket...however, you need one to use some of the RRS flash brackets (wedding pro flash bracket).
I understand. When you take it into portrait position without one, your cam will be off-center weight of the pod.
With a camera and say smaller lens on it, probably not a big deal, but the camera and a 70-200 2.8IS, could make a world of difference.
Thanks for the education, not everyday you get to learn something for free.
I'll check into their flash brackets.
