      My son works as a video production assistant and I have been thinking a lot about posing subjects, after years doing mostly landscape and travel photography. He bought a set of lights, umbrellas and stands at a pawn shop. One of these mounts and flash sets was among the stuff and I found it fascinating. They give me an inexpensive and effective tool for practicing lighting techniques that have frustrated me for a long time.

      I was not able to use this product because it is not intended for use with incadescent photoflood bulbs. I was allowed to return product for credit.

        Comments about Smith-Victor ULM45 Umbrella and Light Mount (120V AC):

        I purchased 4 of these and love them. For the money, they're a fantastic deal and they feel like they'll stand up to a reasonable amount of use. I've got 50 watt quartz halogen PAR bulbs in them and the bulb holder (plastic) gets warm enough that I wouldn't think about using a bulb as high as 500 watts which they say they're rated for... but that's just my opinion. Anyway, I'm very happy with them.

          This little thing can be very useful for mounting a backlight or fill light in any room or exterior... a little catchlight maybe. I can use the same tripods I use with my Speedlites.

          I hope they last.

            Withe influx of low power consumption quality LED lamps with an Edison base, there is a need in the market place for lamp holders than can be placed on film industry grip or lighting stands.

              I have four of these units for my strobes and to support backgrounds
              They are nicely made and the cost is great for a casual photographer.

                      I purchased these to replace the clamp on lights that will not stay where you place them. This is a great item! They are absolutely what the doctor ordered for small slave strobes and the 40watt reflector lights. Should have found then a long time ago.
