When setting up a macro shot, there's already so much to juggle. You have to have something like this in order to keep from losing your mind. The 330B in particular is well made and very reasonably priced, if not the absolute last word in flexibility. For that, you might consider the Novoflex at a much higher price (Is it ironic that the Novoflex price is $330.99 or what?)

This unit is very heavy for field use, even with only one arm attached. It does not detach very easily, so transport can be a problem. When set-up, it works well, so long as you keep it on a level plane and use the angle adjustment, but then handling shots is nearly impossible. Rotating the bracket is extremely tenuous, as the screws cannot hold the weight of the unit plus a flash (I use a 430ex II). Also, if your diffuser falls off, putting it back on is basically impossible while the unit is attached to the bracket. Folding it up is easy enough, once it is detached. Would be fine for studio and shots where you have a tripod and plenty of time to set up.

    Comments about Manfrotto 330B Macro Flash Bracket:

    I use this for macro photography. Holds the flashes well even though they are plastic on the bracket. Overall it serves its purpose. I wish it had something to be able to rotate the flash to better position it on your subject.

      Comments about Manfrotto 330B Macro Flash Bracket:

      useful for controlled situations, but not really for outdoor backcountry photography... somewhat flimsy... flashes may slowly slide out... and flash shoes are plastic, which I expect to break and become losser over time...

        Comments about Manfrotto 330B Macro Flash Bracket:

        I use this bracket to mount my camera and flashes when I in particular photograph smaller animals. Even for it small size it is durable and very easy to use. The only downside is, I would say, the screws that hold the arms. They tend to loosen up frequently resulting the flash swinging in front of you when you are taking your shots. Sometimes this can be very annoying. That is something that probably could be fixed relatively easy.

            Used with MT-24 EX it increses flash's versatility.
            Helps to eliminate flatness in macro images.
            Quite heavy and somewhat problematic in setup.
            Would have much preferred Wimberley brackets, but my pockets aren't deep enough.

              This really allows flexibility to have 2 lights/acc to use at once. I have used it for macro with 2 led light panels, and flash on camera. works on tripod or by hand. Light. durable. only wish the flash brackets would allow you to lock flashes in. Think I may make that with my dremel.

                          I am using this product to shoot macro of water droplets and insects. It is an awesome little device the only draw back I have run into is when it is mounted on the tripod the arm brackets hit the tripod and dont allow for complete articulation. With a little modification this problem can be resolved. Other then then great product.
