    Comments about Olympus FL-BK01 Flash Bracket:

    Suitable for sturdy grip of the camera with a mounted flash or led lighting unit.Olympus bracket is very comfortable because it is round and non slippy but the cover around the handle can be peeled off at the end due to cold temperature during shipping . However it is minor as it can be reglued with crazy glue while holding with tape around for hours. Now it is fixed nicely and the metal quality is made in japan into two pieces.It can be used as an universal bracket for any brand of camera or camcorder too...

          Comments about Olympus FL-BK01 Flash Bracket:

          Four times now I have scoured the B&H catalog for this type of flash bracket. Finally I hit a winner. The three priors were all around the $ range and all had some ridiculously obvious design flaw. This one isn't perfect either, but it is very robust and won't fold up or collapse like the others. It stays put with a heavy flash. It also disassembles and becomes as compact as the ones that fold up, albeit in two pieces. The only other immediate shortcoming is that it prominently displays the Olympus logo while sporting all my Canon equipment. The peeling handle cover tape that everyone else is complaining about is nothing compared to how sturdy this thing is compared to the others I have tried. You can swing it around all day with the camera and flash attached and it doesn't squeak, rattle, or wiggle. It's solid.

            Comments about Olympus FL-BK01 Flash Bracket:

            I have been using the Nikon 60mm macro lens to photograph to transfer into iPhotos on my Macintosh computer my 50 years collection of b & w prints, slides, color prints and photo agency submissions. I found that rather than use a tripod it's far easier and the results the same using a "garden kneeler" to steady both my arms plus using a flash bracket, whether or not I use a flash. The bracket allows me to steady the camera much better than I can do by just holding the camera itself with both hands. This bracket gives more surface area and greatly improves my grip. When I use the flash I put it directly on the camera and use a diffuser, so the Olympus connection shoe mount on the top of this bracket, incompatible for my Nikon flash, doesn't affect my application.

              With the addition of the off camera bracket and cord the FL-50R flash has much more flexibility. Great item!

                  I photograph complex interior spaces. I use Canon EOS-1 Ds Mark II cameras. There are times when I need to use my Canon Electronic Flash units and my Speedotron Electronic Flash units together. In that event I mount my Canon ST-E2 IR transmitter on the camera hot shoe and my Wein IR transmitter on the cold shoe of the Olympus flash bracket with a PC to miniature jack cable. This lets me use as many as four of my small Canon 580 EX electronic flash units and two of my large Speedotron 4803CX power supplies with Wein receivers and 8 of my 206VF electronic flash heads together in any combination and with various lighting accessories. This camera / electronic flash configuration allows me to be completely mobile with wireless IR transmitters and receivers.

                    I use this bracket to hold a Panasonic GH2 camera and an Olympus FL-36R flash unit. It is well made, holds the camera and flash securely, and is comfortable to hold in use. That's everything that's needed from a flash bracket.

                      Comments about Olympus FL-BK01 Flash Bracket:

                      I was looking for a small, well-made carrying and Flash Bracket for my Lumix DMC-GF-1. I wanted something that would allow the flash to be raised above the camera and off to the side.

                      Since the Olympus 4/3 cameras have the same pin-outs on the hot shoe, this was the obvious choice. I also purchased a second one for my other GF-1

                      Well-made, small, lightweight and does the job well!

                          The flash FL-BK01 bracket adds a nice professional touch to lighting at a very reasonable price. I have actually used this bracket for several years and bought this as a replacement to the one that got broken at a Christmas party - through NO fault of the bracket :-)
