p.1 #1 · Off Camera Flash Bracket Suggestions


I am in the market for a flash bracket. I mainly shoot wildlife and at times use my flash with a Better Beamer. Does anyone have any suggestions for an economical bracket that would work for me? Thanks.

I use a RRS B87-B Portrait Perfect package (medium) with my 500/4L IS and Better Beamer. It's not exactly what I'd call 'economical', but with the purchase of a second flash mount pedestal, it lets you mount two flash at nearly opposite sides of the lens, which is great for macro. Mine's slightly older than the current model, link below, but works just great. You might find one used here on FM or on eBay.

other RRS option (but you must have an L plate/bracket as it integrates with it for use)

the simple version:

the very versatile somewhat over the top version:

both fold up very compactly for carry and storage

I use a Newton's bracket. Small compact and it folds flat so I ALWAYS have it in my bag just in case.

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to get the flash off camera check out the Stroboframe Flip 35 bracket.

+1

The B87-B is great ... considering what one pays for the camera body, lenses, and flashes this is not that expensive. From an engineering and manufacturing perspective I can tell you that the parts are worth the price tag - and just in case, the generic RRS components have a really good resale value due to the excellent quality.
