The CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Camera Bracket from Custom-Brackets is a simple and easy-to-use bracket that features a 180° pivoting flash arm that keeps the flash centered above the lens in both horizontal and vertical positions.

The CB Digital-S model is built from black anodized aluminum, with two 1/4"-20 posts to mount a camera and flash, as well as a 1/4"-20 thread to mount the entire system onto a tripod. Slightly shorter than the "T" model, it will accommodate smaller SLR cameras that do not have an add-on power grip or booster. The camera can be mounted with the comfortable grip on either right or left side, and shoe mount flashes can be mounted with the optional FT-JR accessory.

Black Anodized Aluminum Construction
Machined from black anodized aluminum, this bracket offers added strength and versatility with its lighter materials and black finish.
Versatile Pivoting Arm
Its pivoting Arm has spring-loaded tension, a maximum 180° of rotation, and a 1/4"-20 post to mount a flash. The FT-JR accessory permits shoe mounted flashes to be used (sold separately).
Maintenance- & Lubrication-Free Design
Designed to be easy-to-use and maintenance-free, you won't need to oil or lubricate this bracket's arm or features.
1/4"-20 Mounting Posts & Thread
Ready for a large SLR camera and accessory flash with the two 1/4"-20 posts, it is also tripod-ready with a 1/4"-20 thread on the bottom of the bracket.
Reversible Comfort Foam Grip
Easily swap the comfortable foam grip from either the right or left side of the bracket.
Lens-To-Flash Distance: 11"
The bracket's nominal lens-to-flash distance is 11" (30 cm).

      The CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Bracket is a very convenient and efficient way to use a flash off camera. In all the pictures I've taken using it--quite a few--I never had to worry about "redeye." Moreover, because the bracket makes for a fixed off-camera flash positioning, the resulting pictures are predictable and consistently well-lighted. I no longer worry about how high I should hold the flash or, worse, whether the equipment is facing the subject. I use the bracket with a Nikon Coolpix 8700.

      I got this bracket because the weight of the camera (Nikon D7000) and speedlight (SB-900) was bending my finger nails. I am hoping I am going to get used to it. The handle, which is covered by the spongy stuff that many handles are covered with, is a bit on the narrow side. Now my finger nails are digging into the palm of my hand. The other issue I have with this bracket is that the top piece that holds the speedlight can flip over on its own. There is no adjustment to tighten that hinge to stop it from doing that. There are also a number of holes on the top of the bracket that are for attaching the cable to the flash unit. The holes have no thread except for one. Attaching the speedlight cable is not an issue however it is hard to tighten it down. I have had the speedlight swivel and will be adding a washer to tightn it down. There are also no instructions with this bracket. I was told to just look at the photo on the front of the box. The bracket does fit nicely into my camera backpack.

          Comments about Custom Brackets CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Camera Bracket:

          Started using the bracket pretty quickly at a couple of events. Not bad construction. Seems pretty sturdy. A good investment for something simple to get the flash off your camera. The only issues are:
          1) When turning the camera to vertical position, either hold the top of bracket (where flash connects) or pivot the arm beforehand. Otherwise, arm will just fall due to weight of flash. If your flash is secure, you should be fine. But if not...well, hope you have insurance!
          2) Bracket doesn't fold. so storage in a camera bag can be tricky if you already carry a bit of equipment.
          Overall, I am satisfied with the product. I've been using it for most events since I got it. It's worth the investment, especially if you don't have much experience with brackets and are looking to experiment a bit.
          BONUS: Makes me look more "official"!

          Happy capturing from Chicago

              Comments about Custom Brackets CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Camera Bracket:

              I purchased this just to get my flash off my DSLR, and allow me to flip my flash when I go to portrait orientation. My expectation was to have something strong enough to keep my camera and flash together without being too flimsy. It works as I had hoped and holds my camera/flash solidly. Because it is a 'short' bracket, it allows me to use it for urban/photojournalist field trips and not get in the way like a larger bracket. So now I use it more than I originally planned and prefer to keep my camera/flash mounted to it.

              When I first got the bracket, I thought some of the parts were made of thick plastic because the bracket is so light and the black paint seemed more like plastic than painted metal. However, after close inspection, you can see it is CNC machined aluminum, assembled with metal screws in all the right places. This makes it strong and lightweight, a real plus. The top part of the bracket which holds the flash maintains position through a ball and spring mechanism with notches for each position. It's not so strong where you need a strong arm to flip it, but not so weak where the flash bounces up and down. The foam grip for the left hand is comfortable, but I anticipate it would tear after a few years of use, but I'd hope to get my money out of the bracket by that time.

              Before buying this bracket, I noticed others had complained about their mounted flash swiveling due to the lack of a metal bracket 'holding' the hot shoe connector square to the frame. The only lock down is the thumb screw through the top plate of the bracket. To eliminate this issue, I purchased a $.39 rubber washer to go between the bracket and my hot shoe connector. With this solution, there is enough friction to keep the flash snug without any movement.

              Unless you're looking for a bracket to hold a softbox, three speedlights, drinks, and a ton of other accessories, this is a great bracket for simple uses.

              Comments about Custom Brackets CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Camera Bracket:

              This is a good flash bracket that is strong and attaches easily to the camera. I would also recommend that you buy an anti-twist mount for your flash gun to keep the flash gun lined up with the shooting area, otherwise you are reliant on tightening the thumb screw to keep it in line, which is not very effective.

                I recently bought the CB digital-T (tall) bracket and returned it because it was too bulky and awkward for me. I decided to try this one (S - short) and it is perfect. It securely holds my camera and flash. It is much more compact than the CB digital-T bracket. This size is perfect for my small hands and gives me more stability when shooting. There is just enough room inside the bracket for my camera, battery grip and flash cord (leaving about 1 inch of space between the flash cord and the rotating arm.) Love it!!!

                      I purchased this bracket to mount a video camera from the sunroof of my car. I have a suction mount which would mount the camera inverted. This bracket has threads and slots which gave me the versitility to use in this odd manner.

                      I would have given 5 stars but the hinge doesn't lock. Which this is most likely fine if the product is used as advertised, I would like to be able to lock it for my use.

                        It's a simple flash bracket. Top flips over for vertical shooting. I can't see needing anything more in a bracket. Hinge might be a little flimsy but if not abused should last.

                          The CB Digital-S Flash Rotating Bracket is a very convenient and efficient way to use a flash off camera. In all the pictures I've taken using it--quite a few--I never had to worry about "redeye." Moreover, because the bracket makes for a fixed off-camera flash positioning, the resulting pictures are predictable and consistently well-lighted. I no longer worry about how high I should hold the flash or, worse, whether the equipment is facing the subject. I use the bracket with a Nikon Coolpix 8700.

                            Bracket is used to get the external flash unit above and away from the D-SLR camera, to reduce red-eye, and to produce a better bounce flash.
