Product Highlights
  • Canon 3-pin Adapter Connector Fitting the 5D, 5D Mark IV, 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D and Similar Canon Cameras

This Dot Line RS-0424/C3 RPS TTL Tilt Flash Bracket attaches to the base of an SLR or similarly sized camera and provides both a platform for a shoe-mount flash, as well as a TTL extension cable to run between the camera and flash without any loss of flash functionality.

The design of this bracket allows for full grip and control of a camera and minimal obstruction caused by the bracket itself.

In addition, the included off-camera TTL cord features a tilting base that facilitates proper illumination for close up shots.

Adjustable bracket - a shoe-mount flash can be lifted up to 16" above the camera
Bracket design keeps a photographer's hands on the camera, not on the bracket
Tilting feature is useful for macro or close-up shooting

      Comments about RPS Lighting RS-0424/C3 RPS TTL Tilt Flash Bracket:

      I spend about 180 days on the road with my photography and video. I WILL NOT use equipment that is not reliable or durable. This product meets every demand that I have asked of it. I agree with NOODLES. You see a screw loose...fix it! To have equipment simply fall apart at a shoot means that preview maintenance was not performed ahead of time...don't blame the product blame the one holding it! For the money I am amazed at how well this item performs. Hey! If you have another $100 or more go buy another product. But if you want a unit that, for the money, does an excellent job plus gives a professional look then look no further!

        Comments about RPS Lighting RS-0424/C3 RPS TTL Tilt Flash Bracket:

        This bracket has several poorly designed features that make it not worth getting. I suggest upgrading to a much better model. For instance, there is a snap lock in the landscape position but NONE in the vertical position. So, if you rotate the flash to the vertical position, it will just flop back down again. The hot shoe and rubber pads do not hold the flash securely and it will spin. There is almost no way around this. Really a poor design. The hot shoe is threaded aluminum and has only 1-1/2 to 2 threads of engagement; it will strip sometime in the near future.

        This bracket probably can be relied on for a few months but not much more than that.

        This product is just what I expected and more. Some reviewers have said there is no lock in the protrait poition but there is. This might have been more evident had there been some instructions. However, the bracket is easy enough to figure out with out it. It is sturdy, easy to use, and I can't wait till next week when I get a chance to try it out at my first fasion show shoot.

          Comments about RPS Lighting RS-0424/C3 RPS TTL Tilt Flash Bracket:

          The idea of this product is great, but the quality of the manufacturing is awful. I shot one wedding with it working entirely. Two weeks later I shot another, and the screw which holds the remote trigger in place fell out at some point and I was unable to locate it. Three weddings later, the method that allows the camera to be held in its vertical position is no longer working at all. I'm going to be looking for another solution, and will try and return this piece of junk. Hopefully it's not too late.

              GARBAGE! This don't even deserve one star!!! First time I used it was at a wedding and also the last time. It's a good thing I had my old faithful, stroboframe bracket with me. The construction on this thing is so bad. For somebody with small hands or short fingers, it's very awkward trying to press the shutter release button. Also when switching from landscape to vertical...it is very clumsy. My advice....SAVE YOUR MONEY! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

                  I used this bracket once, for a wedding, and never again. It is too cumbersome to use.

                  Comments about RPS Lighting RS-0424/C3 RPS TTL Tilt Flash Bracket:

                  Although I have only used this product practicing for an upcoming event I find that it allows quick conversion from landscape to portait orientation. The bracket is light weight, easy to use, easily treaked to get better flash diffusion and facilitates longer flash range then having the flash mounted on the camera hot shoe.The instruction booklet was non existent with the product I received and I don't know if that is the norm or if my unit was previously opened. Still, looking at the images on the package and B&H's website make it easy to figure out how the unit is assembled and used.Based on very limited usage I would still recommend the product for the amateur photographer or anyone who has limited resources for all of those niceties we would like to have but find it difficult to justify.

                      I have never written a bad review about anything....but this item warrants being the first. Although I bought the Nikon version of this product, the basic bracket is still the same. I used it at a wedding in late December and the thing literally started falling apart during the church ceremony. Innocently enough, the nameplate popped off the handle and could not be replaced...no biggie. But then during the formal group photos, a small spring fell out of the bracket handle, and from that point on, there was no locking mechanism when you switched the camera position from horizontal to vertical. Now I am not hard on equipment, especially things that I am trying out for the first time, but, in my opinion, this thing is a piece of junk....and definitely not worth [$]. Maybe my experience was an anomaly, but just be warned and buyer beware.
