    I am using this with a Nikon D300 with MB-D10 grip and a Nikon SB-910 flash. I mount the flash bracket on the right side so that I can flip it so the flash is above the camera in a "normal" portrait orientation (right side of camera and shutter release on top). This works very well and is extremely intuitive -- within a few minutes you will naturally flip the bracket and rotate the camera in one swift motion. The bracket does have some movement to it, but it's extremely sturdy and has proven to be durable. I think the construction and quality of materials is very solid and professional -- I have confidence it will last a long time.

    This is the tall (T) model that elevates the flash above a pro or gripped body and it does that very well. It's still easy to bounce the flash and works well for large open areas where the ceiling is higher or non-existent (in which case you'd bounce off a wall or diffuse and go direct). I also use a Gary Fong Lightsphere and it works well together. Of course in a smaller space you could probably do without the bracket.

    The folding option is fantastic and allows it to tuck nicely into my camera bag.

    I have a RRS L-Plate installed on my MB-D10 and the CB bracket with anti-twist plate mount perfectly to the bottom of the RRS L-Plate. I have no problems holding the camera just as I would normally for portrait or landscape shots -- basically just ignore the bracket and hold the camera like you normally would. The foam grip is basically padding for the back of your right hand as you hold the camera. It's a very effective bracket.

    All-in-all money well spent with no regrets.

          Comments about Custom Brackets Folding-T Flash Bracket:

          I use this flash bracket for photographing sports and portraits. It is very well built and works exactly as advertised. Completely eliminates red eye and gives a much softer light than with the flash mounted in the camera's hot shoe. The only downside is that you pretty much have forget about using a strap.

                  This is a superior quality bracket that folds for easy storage in your camera bag. The fit, finish and sturdy construction make this well worth the price. After a thorough comparison of camera brackets, I couldn't find anything else that came close to the overall quality and convenience of the Folding-T by Custom Brackets. Highly recommended!

                  Works well for D300 and SB900. Somewhat awkward maneuvering at times when flipping flash. Item is durable, slipped out of hand first use with camera and flash. Saved camera and flash leaving scratches and chip on mount. Did not affect the use of mount.

                        Comments about Custom Brackets Folding-T Flash Bracket:

                        I initially bought the custom bracket junior version, only to find it is a very awkward shape to fit into a gear bag. So I exchanged it for this version, B&H were prompt and efficient with the exchange and I am so much happier with the folding version. It's cheaper too. The trade off is that the handle bar doesn't telescope, (moving the flash further from the camera). So it's personal choice and I prefer the convenience of the folding bracket.

                                I purchased this bracket after reading all of the reviews. This is my first flash bracket. I love the way it folds. Took me a little while to get it just right to hold flash firmly. Used with Canon 7D with battery pack and 580EX flash.

                                  I have a Nikon D300 with battery pack and it fit's with room on side for your hands. This model is for extra room on top and it still has about 2 inches of room on the top of the camera. Side swivel locks into place for flash and the build is great. Would buy again!

                                    there is lot of options out there for brackets.
                                    all the features on this one can be compared to any other, but what makes the price point difference worth it for me is the folding capablity. it is GREAT. can through it in my camera bag. fits everywhere.

                                      Does what it says. Folds flat for storage. Fits great in gear bags. Very well made.

                                          I shoot with the Canon 5D and use the battery pack as well. I often use the focus and shutter buttons on the battery pack and this is one of the few brackates I found that claimed to work on the right side of the camera with the battery pack. there is room for your hand to grab the grip in the horizontal position, but I have small hands. I had to screw the braket onto the camera with a slight angle toward the lens so my wrist wouldn't push so hard on it. Overall, it works great. After a full day of shooting a wedding I had a couple day bruise on the wrist. No other complaints yet! Only shot with it twice so far though. Wedding and grad pics.
