Product Highlights
  • 0.25" Thick Aluminum Bracket
  • 180° Articulating Flash Arm
  • 1/4"-20 Camera Mount Thumbscrew
  • Adjustable Machined Aluminum Flash Shoe
  • Made in the USA

The Flash Flip H.O.T. Bracket for DSLR Cameras from Flash Frame features the same design as the FlashFlip FP, but rotates in the opposite direction of other similar brackets. With this bracket your hand stays on top of the camera - even in the vertical position. The platform base is offset to allow clearance for any hand size.

The bracket has a steady platform base that allows you to stand the entire assembly up (camera, flash and bracket) for easier access and more stability. In addition, the base also has more surface area that makes it ideal for larger cameras like medium format or digital SLR cameras.

The design of this bracket keeps the flash high and directly over the camera lens in both horizontal and vertical positions. This eliminates red-eye and unwanted side shadows. By having the flash high above the lens, shadows are cast behind the subject and are therefore not seen in the photograph. It works with most SLR or medium format cameras and shoe-type flashes and has a locking shoe and 1/4"-20 flash mount.

Material Bracket: 0.25 thick x 1.0" wide aluminum bent at 90°
Handle: soft foam handle
Articulating Arm 180° hinge on a nylon bushing with flash shoe tightened via thumbscrew
Camera Mount 1/4"-20 thumbscrew post
Dimensions Bracket: 9.5 x 7.0 x 1.0" (24 x 18 x 2.5 cm)
Base Plate: 3.0 x 3.5" (7.6 x 8.9 cm)
Weight 1.0 lb (0.45 kg)

      I bought this for shooting weddings and other events with my Nikon D-80 and SB-600 with SC-29 cord. Well constructed (nice to buy something good and solid made in USA). While it does add some weight, it's not too heavy. Well balanced. Easy to go from horizontal to verticle frame. And no side shadows!

      I tried using this product at weddings and events. I thought that the price was right and a Stroboframe would not accommodate my camera. I was shooting a Nikon D70 at the time and thought this would work with a flip feature to allow for vertical shots. The product is lightweight and you hold the camera to use it, not the grip. However, it is too lightweight and the flip feature doesn't give you a secure feeling. It is very loose. My SB800 flash twists and gets off angle. There is no anti-twist plate for the camera. The screw that holds your flash cord (SC29) is just that: a cheap little screw. I have lost that after several uses. Thank goodness they included another one on the bottom arm. You can't find them at Lowe's. Get a good "Custom Bracket" and forget trying to same money if you really want a bracket that will do the job. I learned my lesson about trying to save money real fast. If anyone would like to buy this bracket I know a guy who would part with one really cheap.

              Great bracket for the price. Works very well in horizontal position but could be better shooting vertically. Somewhat hard to get to shutter release if your camera has a power-grip attached.

                        I bought this before taking senior pictures of my nephew, and found it to work as advertized. Keeping the flash far enough from the lens to avoid redeye, both in horizontal and vertical shots, is a snap; and switching from one orientation to the other couldn't be easier. I like having the bracket on the right, too. It's convenient to be able to have my right hand on top of the camera for vertical shots. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that the screw only protrudes a millimeter or so, making it a bit tricky to get it started into the tripod reciever at the bottom of the camera. Once in place, however, it grips securely. All in all, a great purchase, and one I will use frequently.

                        The Flash Flip H.O.T. is BETTER than the two earlier model Stroboframe brackets I own. It's not as bulky as the one bracket with a rotating link, while its construction provides a good carrying handle for the fully assembled rig. It comes with a well-constructed shoe, but one which comes off easily, to allow mounting of the distal end of the Nikon SC-29 (into which my SB-800 fits.) Yes, the overall rig gets a bit heavy, but it balances well, and as noted, can be carried easily. Finally, as advertised, this bracket allows one to shoot verticals with the right hand on top, the more comfortable position.

                          The bracket is well constructed, and has just the right resistance on the 'flip' to stay in the right place.
                          Only one reservation: I use it with a Sony A700 with vertical grip. When the camera is in the vertical position, the bracket partially obstructs access to the vertical release. (I have to use the middle finger, rather than index finger, to fire the shutter.)

                          It is worth to bring this handy tool when you go to take pictures with flash light. Mostly brackets have their handle on left side but this one has its right side which makes easy to control your camera and lens.

                            If your tired of those flash shadows to the side on vertical shots this is the answer. Easy to move arm with enough friction to hold it in position. You do need a cable to connect camera to flash and a Minolta / Sony mount would be nice, otherwise it's great.
