The Di400CR bracket is designed for the photographer who requires tripod rotation as well as hand held flash photography. Newton's patented rotation system keeps the flash directly over the lens in either vertical or horizontal positions for better Red Eye and Shadow Control. All of the Di brackets are made from 6061T aluminum, milled not bent for strength. The foam rubber palm rest and overhead flash holder on the Di is adjustable. The rotator can be moved from left to right to allow for large lens use. The bottom plate and camera plate has a 1/4-20 tripod socket for use on a standard tripod. This bracket replaces the N7800M.

NOTE: Flash holders are not included and must be ordered separately.

    Comments about Newton Camera Brackets Di400CR Camera Rotator Bracket:

    My primary use for this bracket is shooting low-light events using a monopod or tripod (with lenses which don't accept a tripod ring). I find my Bogen ball heads get in my way when I'm changing camera orientation and are too slow to operate, so this bracket solves this issue.

    I tried the Bogen elbow bracket, and it was inconvenient since I had to attach and release the bracket from my monopod for each change of orientation. I bought the Stroboframe Vertaflip PHD Bracket and found it too wobbly and returned it. I bought the Stroboframe Pro-DCRS Camera Rotator Bracket and found it wouldn't stay in place unless overtightened, then it was difficult to move; I returned it, too. (Thanks for your patience, B&H!)

    I use Bogen RC2 releases, so I've put an RC2 plate on the bottom of the bracket and a Bogen 3299 quick release adaptor where the camera's supposed to go. Now this bracket can snap onto my mono (or tri)pod just as my cameras do, and my cameras can snap onto it!

    I usually don't use flash when using a tripod, so I've installed an off-camera cord to the top part of the bracket and replaced the screw which attaches the flash upright to the rest of the bracket with a knob. Now the off-camera cord and that upright are separate from the bracket in my kit, ready to quickly install as a unit if I want to take a long exposure (for the background) flash shot with the camera in either orientation.

    The bracket is exceptionally well built and the design is a piece of ingenius simplicity.
