Cameras mounted to flash brackets of any brand tend to twist or rotate on the camera mounting screw. Cork or rubber friction pads help, but the real solution is to use a camera-specific Anti-Twist Plate. They act as an interface between the camera and bracket, pin-register to the bracket and conform to the camera's baseplate. This locks the camera to the bracket to prevent twisting. Because there are so many camera configurations, Anti-Twist Plates are sold separately.

Please see this link for a list of compatible cameras.

NOTE: Camera Anti-Twist Plates are not compatible with QuickFlip models.

    I use this to keep my Pro-T bracket mounted solidly to my camera. So far it seems to keep the bracket from slipping. I can't imagine how it could slip with this thing in place. None of the stroboframe accessories I purchased to go with my Pro-T bracket came with instructions, but it only took a couple minutes to figure each one out. This piece had a sticker of some sort applied to the back of it, and there were no instructions saying whether or not to remove it, but I quickly realized it had to be removed in order to use the plate properly. The adhesive wasn't easily removed and there are still pieces of it stuck to the plate. My plate appears to have a slight bend or warp in it when mounted. Seems like it might have something to do with the fact that the plate is mounted with a screw on only one corner. It's the opposite corner that doesn't sit flush. But the bend isn't significant enough to interefere with anything or keep it from working properly.

    I bought this to use for mounting a Nikon D7000 to a Stroboframe "flip" bracket. First thing wrong was that the small threaded screw that comes packaged with this twist plate that screws into the top of the flash bracket's camera platform could not be used. The receiving hole on bracket's platform was poorly machined threaded and wouldn't accept the small screw. So actually it was a problem with the flash bracket not so much with the twist plate, but since the are both products of Stroboframe I'm reporting it. Anyway, the small screw was discarded and I used some super glue on the 2 twist plate pins and clamped dried it to the camera platform. The glue did the job of securing the twist plate to the platform. However, once the D7000 with a 28-70/f2.8 AF-S lens (5 1/2 lbs total)was mounted I noticed the overall weight was causing some moderate twisting and that was frustrating. The flash bracket came with a piece of pre-formed self-adhesive cork that was supplied to be used on the camera platform for added grip in lieu of a twist plate. It probaly would do the job if a much less weighty camera/lens combo were being used. However the thickness of the cork and twist plate together added too much thickness for the length of the mounting screw to thread into the camera's receiving hole. However, I was fortunate enough to have had a piece of rubber with the proper thickness laying around and glued that onto the twist plate. That did it !! It added the extra friction needed and right now I'm totally satsfied as there is no twsting at all, but had to do some addn'l tasks to get there.

              This is my second anti twist plate for the Stroboframe bracket. The first was for my Nikon F4 and D70. I needed the 300 slr for my Nikon D300s and SB 800. It's simple to install and it works as it should. A must for wedding fotogs.

                Comments about Stroboframe 300-SLR Camera Anti-Twist Plate:

                It was recommended I use this product and so I ordered it with my stroboframe bracket. Personally I think the anti-twist plate should be included WITH the bracket but anyway.... I find attaching this bracket is very difficult on your own and not something you want to try in a hurry. Its very difficult to hold the bracket, position your camera on the screw, and try to hold the plate in position so it doesnt slip around while your trying to attach the dang thing. Very frustrating indeed. Unfortunately it's something needed but I thing the makers need to go back to the drawing board on this one.....Why would you not include this automatically on the bracket so it wouldnt be so difficult????? It also needs a little pouch or something to put it in for packing with your gear so it doesnt scratch anything. Construction seems to be fine but it's a frustrating little piece to attach.

                    This fits my 50D and prevents the camera from twisting on the verta-flip. I added a piece of gaffers tape to prevent this plate from potentially making a mark on my camera.

                      Make sure you mount using the screw with the recessed section in it. I was using the solid screw, and obviously it was not working. This works with a canon 50D nicely.

                        If you have a flash bracket you HAVE to have one of these. Photography can be a fun and rewarding expereience, or a very large point of frustration if it "ain't your day". If you own a flash bracket and do not have an anti-twist plate on it, you can look forward to a lot of "it ain't you day" events. There's enough to worry about, (ISO setting low or high enough for light situation, white balance set correctly, composition, etc.)without having to constantly re-adjust the camera on the bracket because it loosened up. Again. For the ?th time. If you paid for a flash and a flash bracket, why save the [$] and not get this? This is really cheap insurance.

                              Keeps heavy camera/lens combos from twisting when rotating to vertical with the Stroboframe camera flip flash brackets. The flash Anti-Twist plate is also good for for the securing the sync cord to the flash bracket. This keeps speedlight in alignment by preventing the sync cord from twisting.

                                      I do weddings and I hate it when my flash and camera aren't both pointed where they're aimed. This anti-twist plate fixes that, even if bumped all parts are pointed where I aim them and stay that way.

                                          A must have accessory for my Pro-RL flash bracket that keeps Nikon with larger lens from twisting out of place during weddings. Simple and easy to install and requiring no modifications when using D-700. I would also recommend the flash Anti-Twist plate for the SC-29 when securing the sync cord to the Pro-RL flash bracket. This keeps SB-900 in alignment.

                                              Might not seem like much, but when you're doing a shoot and your camera is slipping left and right on the bracket, it's a real pain. Plus it can make you look like a dunce. This little gizmo stops all of that and let's you focus......on focusing (sorry). Don't let this opportunity "slip" by, add this to your equipment.

                                                I ordered this as the Cork was still letting a slip with the camera. This fixed that ASAP.

                                                After reading many reviews on the flash bracket I bought this anti-twist plate and my camera did not move at all once it was installed. My only issue was working the screw to attach the camera to the plate wasn't easy. You have to carefully work it through the base of the flash bracket or risk ruining the thread. At least they give you an extra.

                                                  The anti-twist plate keeps the SLR body stable on the Stroboframe bracket and once attached doesn't need to be readjusted. Strongly recommend this instead of the cork mounting pad that comes with the brackets.
