      The product takes time to get use to if you haven't added extra bulk to your system in the past. Not meant for battery grip would have been nice if the bracket could accommodate the extra 2" to clear the hot-shoe with battery grip. Easily swings position.

      I am actually going to try attaching the bracket to my 400mm and my 70-200mm tripod collar to move the flash further up the lens using a better beamer for nature shooting. The Bracket arm acts as a sturdy GRIP helping keep the camera/lens from shaking while hand held.
      While connected to your SLR as in the brochure, the flash "off" hot shoe casts a pleasant and less harsh light on your subject, if you use the flash correctly.

          Comments about Custom Brackets Folding-S Flash Bracket:

          Eliminates side-shadow when using flash in portrait orientation.
          PROS: Solid construction, positive "flip" with spring-loaded detents, folds very compactly, spare parts available if you ever need them.
          CONS: About an inch higher than needed for my 5D3 (no grip). Can only mount to left of camera (5D3), so my right hand is underneath for portrait mode.
          Would definitely recommend to a friend.

          Mounting on right side may not work

                This is a very well made bracket! However, it may not be possible to mount it on the right side (shutter release side) of some cameras, such as the Canon EOS 7D (even without battery grip). The distance between the tripod screw and the hinge bump on the bracket is not wide enough by about 1/4 inch to accommodate the 7D width when mounted on the right side of the camera. This makes the bracket unusable if you shoot portrait orientation with the grip at the top (right hand above the camera). The CB Folding-T Flash Bracket should resolve this issue.

                    I was concern about the quality when I ordered this bracket because after all it folds up, right? The bracket is very well built and locks solidly in the open position. It collapse easily and takes up very little room in my bag. The top bracket that holds the flash can be adjusted to securely hold the flash mounting bracket to prevent the flash from moving.

                    The bracket is made out of aluminum and has been designed to minimize weight without sacrificing durability. In short a great product that is produced in the U.S. for a change.

                      I'm a photo enthusiast, and this is my first flash bracket. I use it on a Nikon 300s with 900 flash and 1.5 foot (18 inch) Vello TTL flash cord. Works great. Easy to attach items to the bracket and they are held securely. Very lightweight.

                        I have used this bracket a couple of times and it's a must have if you're doing any type of event photography like I do. It's super easy to set up and really gets the flash nice and high off of the camera. I have a Canon 5d Mark iii and it's great, without the battery grip though, and feels natural. It has a nice foam like grip on the side, but watch out for the top piece because it doesn't lock. It can easily flip back over with a little bit of force. All in all, I would definitely recommend this product.

                            This high quality bracket was delivered to me in Australia in very quick time by B&H. The S-Bracket is light yet strong, folds up quickly and stows away in my medium sized camera bag. I'm using it with a Nikon D5100 and SB700 flash. It looks smart and is well made. I can't fault it at the price.

                            The product is awesome and secure. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. However, do to this it does add some weight to your camera and therefore you can have more camera shake when holding in your hands. This is something I am having to practice so that I can get rid of us as a tripod is not always an option for me to use.

                              Got this bracket specifically for orienting the flash for portrait images, since I had never used one before I didn't realize that in portrait position the flash is horizontal, like it would be if you turned the camera with it attached, only difference is it is above the camera. Not sure if there are any brackets that adjust so the flash is vertical in portrait position, but for this bracket you'd have to bounce off a wall instead of the ceiling I think, I haven't been able to contort the flash otherwise...other than that the bracket is sturdy, I find it awkward and slightly cumbersome since I don't have any experience with them, but I'm sure you'd get used to it with more practice. Also with a shorter lens in portrait orientation it can get a little side-heavy.

                                Very well made and quite functional. I love the ability to fold it up. It's quite a good bracket, durable build, nice functionality.

                                Left off a star because it's not ideal and I was not happy about having to buy the small plate that keeps the camera straight on the frame. Actually I made one out of a piece of hardwood trim board and it looks awesome stained and in place with a couple brass screws.

                                Only thing I would change in the bracket is for the top to have ability to lock when flipped. I say "ability" cause I would not want it to snap locked with every flip.

                                Overall, this is a good purchase.

                                        If you have a large camera like a Canon EOS 1D Mk III (et. al.)it just barely barely fits. A smaller camera, like a EOS 40D fits fine.

                                        Aside from that it's a good sturdy platform that changes from landscape to portrait quickly keeping the flash centered over the lens.

                                        Folds up very compactly. A great value for the money.

                                          Comments about Custom Brackets Folding-S Flash Bracket:

                                          I shoot very few "people" events, and because these events are usually held in badly lit places such as museums, use of a flash is a given. In the past, I spent a lot of time fixing red-eye after my shoots. I finally purchased the Folding-S Bracket, and red-eye is a thing of the past.

                                          The bracket is very easy to use, even in portrait mode, and it folds up small, fitting easily into my camera bag. Just make sure the joints lock up when switching back and forth from portrait to landscape mode--in the heat of the moment it can happen that the arm holding the flash does not totally lock unless you are deliberate.

                                          Flip to vertical position does not lock in place. Need to take caution.

                                              Comments about Custom Brackets Folding-S Flash Bracket:

                                              I find this bracket to be balanced and light weight. My only wish is that the grip were a bit bigger. I think that would make it more comfortable to hold.
