    This unit has all that you need to get set up. It comes with the hot shoe cord and the remote shutter cord. The unit itself works quite well and I would have actually given it 5 stars except for a few issues...
    1- The after market flash cord needed to be coaxed into working on the camera connect end. Once it got securely connected it's been fine.
    2- The "instructions" that come with it are lousy. They are only for the flash cord, and not for switching from right to left hand or how to lock the camera plate in either position.
    3- The "customer support" for the product through the manufacturer, is a joke. I had to ask the same question at least 6 times and never got the answer.

    With all that said, yes I would recommend this unit simply because of the all in one type package and the benefits from it. The flash cord works, I probably just have a finicky one. It is fairly easy to figure out how to lock the camera plate in either position... in landscape there is a screw that tightens and loosens with a nice sized handle. In portrait mode, you loosen the above mentioned screw, move the "foot" that is connected below the hand grip, you slide the camera into portrait mode and move the foot back into the starting position. As far as switching from left hand/right hand grip mode, all you have to do is loosen the top screw that holds the remote shutter button, and turn it the other way... Pretty simple. The unit is still sturdy with the flash bar all the way up, and it is quite comfortable to use. Just make sure that you buy the correct unit as far as the remote shutter button is concerned. I've read reviews where consumers blame the unit for buying the wrong one...

    I just picked up a Xsi and it worked just fine. it is a light weight frame that flolds down nicely. when extending the flash to the max it does seem flimsey, but the trade off of having something you can hold. the trigger release takes some getting used to, but does work and is in a handy location. it would be nice if you could lock the camera in either the horizontal or vertical position.

    Comments about RPS Lighting TTL Digital Flash Bracket for Canon EOS Rebel Series:

    The worst thing about camera flash, either built-in or hot-shoe, is the effect when it is used on-camera. I have hand-held my flash off camera for many years and, it works great but your arm gets tired after only a few pics. This bracket allows you to get the flash off of the camera by quite a distance; not just a few inches. It is fully compatible with most cameras and even includes a shutter switch on the bracket. Don't know how I ever got along without it!

    Comments about RPS Lighting TTL Digital Flash Bracket for Canon EOS Rebel Series:

    I love this bracket, although I did have one (big) problem. I bought this to use with my Rebel T3i. The cord that came with this will not work with the T3i. I tried and tried to get it to work, and nothing. So I went to my local camera shop and purchased a promaster deluxe off-camera ttl cord to use with this. Now it works perfectly!

    Also I agree with other reviewers...it would have been nice if it would have came with an instruction book, but I think everything is self-explanatory (other than the cord not working for me).

    And other reviews said that the camera itself 'slides', but that is not true. You can tighten it so there is no movement. This is a very sturdy unit once everything is tightened up. Even the guys at the camera store were very impressed with this!

      Can't find anything bad about this product yet. Got it to mount GPS, Flash and mic with a Canon SL1 camera. Best thing about it is, once it is loaded up with all the gear it doesn't feel heavy in the hand and it is easy to mount on a tripod.

          I'm a semi-professional wedding photographer, but have been around for sometime. The RPS bracket is as good as the operator. It's going to be fine for some but a problem for others especially if you are still lamenting about shadows. Removal of shadows is not what you are basically using this bracket for. How about functionality!!!

            I use this product for mostly macro shooting and close ups. The bracket is well built and durable. The only problem I found is thst the included off camera cord does not tighten on the bracket and tends to wobble. However the cannon off camera cord I all ready had tightens securely so problem solved.

              I am a semi-pro photographer, I use this flash bracket mostly for events. It does a great job reducing unwanted shadows to the side of your subject while taking portrait format photos with a flash. The design could be refined slightly. For example, the locking mechanism would be better if it was the same for both vertical and horizontal shooting, also the pins on the flash adapter cord are long, stiff, and slightly rough. I'm sure it will get better with use. You may take a few unintentional pictures due to a lack of a distinct half stop on the shutter release. Over all this product is working out well.

                The only drawback is: the cable used to fire the shutter has a pin that is not compatible to the camera. Needs an adapter to make it work....having difficulty in finding one. This bracket was advertised to work with my type of Canon camera.

                  Big and awkward, but I see no other way they could have done it. This enables direct flash where bounce flash used to be the only answer, although that still created obvious shadows sometimes. Still need to watch for shadows with this, but in different places. Had heard about problems re slipping in the mount, turning in the mount, flash not triggering, all seem to be myths if you ask me - a little common sense and having used a tripod before seem to solve these problems, had no trouble at all with any of the features, and they are all as advertised.

                      Comments about RPS Lighting TTL Digital Flash Bracket for Canon EOS Rebel Series:

                      I had bought this bracket for the sole purpose of eliminating the shadow caused by turning my camera with flash attached to get portrait pictures....I was not expecting the lighting to change so drastically. With the flash removed from the camera, the pictures turned out absolutely awesome. I am a semi-pro wedding photographer who covers wedding with a friend of mine who is semi-pro as well. We photographed a wedding two weeks ago. Was there for over eight hours. In comparing my pictures to hers, the lighting in mine, no shadows is so much better than hers, that we are not using her pictures for the bride and groom to choose from. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a SLR and flash. The only "problem" I had was that the rubber gasket like thing at top where the flash attachs came loose only where the flash was attached. I superglued it down and have not had a problem since.
                      It seems kinda heavy when you first use it, but once you start taking pictures and you see the results, you don't think about how much it weighs anymore. You do need a small screwdriver or other device to be able to disconnect the camera mount plate to change camera batteries. I found that a quarter works wonderfully. I used it mounted on my tripod and handheld and absolutely love it. I loved the ease at which the camera flips from the horizontal to vertical position and back again.
                      I had looked at similar devices on the most popular auction website and they cost at least $50 more than B & H.

                          My battalion commander here in Iraq asked me to take portraits of all our personnel here for the mission yearbook. Much of my photo equipment had been left behind in the States and I was using a jerry-rig for mounting my flash/bouncer combo so that the Lumi-Quest 80/20 bouncer would point up toward the ceiling while I held the camera in the portrait position. This proved cumbersome and I had to re-adjust the height of the flash unit for subjects of differing tallness. In war you can't always shoot with the photo studio you want; sometimes you have to shoot with the studio you have, but with 100 soldiers at a time lined up and waiting to be shot, these inefficiencies were hampering me badly, and a cause of frustration. Desparate for improved efficiency, I ordered this product and it has made my sessions a breeze. The flash is always above the camera where I need it, and I can quickly adjust the camera back and forth between portrait and landscape orientation. I was then able to knock out good, professional quality photos at about ten seconds a subject. This flash bracket is the best [$] I've ever spent. It has proven indispensible. The shutter release thumb switch works brilliantly-even smoother than I had hoped. The grip is comfortable and provides great positive control. The quick-release plate requires a screwdriver to attach it to the camera, so I advise getting a short one, or, if you are a 50-cal machinegunner you might use your headspace & timing gauge. The only other imperfection is that the position locks that keep the camera carriage in the horizontal or vertical position leave something to be desired. The landscape position lock is a setscrew with a star-knob and the latch that holds the camera in the portrait position is a large lever that seems to have been added as an afterthought. The lever holds the camera generally in place, but it does have room to jiggle, so the photographer has to hold the camera tightly to the bracket when actually taking the picture. Still, I love this bracket.

                          I own a Canon Rebel and was looking for a "starter" bracket for doing portraits. I loved the fact that this had all of the wires that were needed to connect the flash unit to the camera, plus the bracket. The shoe mount is a little difficult to get on properly and you need to be diligent about locking the mount into place so that if you move the camera does not slip. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this item.

                          This unit has all that you need to get set up. It comes with the hot shoe cord and the remote shutter cord. The unit itself works quite well and I would have actually given it 5 stars except for a few issues...
                          1- The after market flash cord needed to be coaxed into working on the camera connect end. Once it got securely connected it's been fine.
                          2- The "instructions" that come with it are lousy. They are only for the flash cord, and not for switching from right to left hand or how to lock the camera plate in either position.
                          3- The "customer support" for the product through the manufacturer, is a joke. I had to ask the same question at least 6 times and never got the answer.

                          With all that said, yes I would recommend this unit simply because of the all in one type package and the benefits from it. The flash cord works, I probably just have a finicky one. It is fairly easy to figure out how to lock the camera plate in either position... in landscape there is a screw that tightens and loosens with a nice sized handle. In portrait mode, you loosen the above mentioned screw, move the "foot" that is connected below the hand grip, you slide the camera into portrait mode and move the foot back into the starting position. As far as switching from left hand/right hand grip mode, all you have to do is loosen the top screw that holds the remote shutter button, and turn it the other way... Pretty simple. The unit is still sturdy with the flash bar all the way up, and it is quite comfortable to use. Just make sure that you buy the correct unit as far as the remote shutter button is concerned. I've read reviews where consumers blame the unit for buying the wrong one...
