    I bought this clamp as a replacement for the incredibly cheap one that came with my bargain-basement Strobist kit. The hot shoe adapter is a nice touch and fits my 580EXII pretty well. I can't always clamp the 580 down until it clicks, but it's pretty secure. The ability to swivel the hot shoe adapter is a big plus if you rely on Canon's line-of-sight wireless.

    The tilt adjustment is pretty nice. It's not exactly fluid, but works well with a big lever that makes adjustment easy.

    I do wish the umbrella clamp had a spring in it to allow easy adjustment, but the thumbscrew is okay.

    All the adjustment screws thread into metal inserts, so stripping any of them is unlikely.

    Works great. I use it to have a softening umbrella while doing portraits on the go on a monopod for thin tripod, mostly at weddings.

    It's not especially well made and I don't expect it to last years as it's all plastic but I am glad I bought it and am happy with its performance.

      Comments about Interfit STR117 Umbrella Bracket with Shoe Adapter:

      This product is exactly what I was looking for. The only thing that could be any better is if it were made of lightweight aluminum. The plastic, however, feels strong and I'm confident that these brackets will perform well.

      I use the brackets for supporting two SB800 speedlights to add to portraiture and wedding photography.

          Comments about Interfit STR117 Umbrella Bracket with Shoe Adapter:

          I use a couple of these to mount speedlights to stands and attach umbrellas, I have had no issues with them. They are plastic, not metal; I'm sure that keeps cost down, but I am worried about the umbrella clamp becoming stripped. It is fairly difficult to turn. They also are fairly large and awkward to pack in my case.

                      This is a great flash bracket. It's a pretty basic design and it's built from sturdy PVC with just a bit of metal hardware, but it's strong and light and it does what it's supposed to. It has more than a 180-degree spread and the handle that tightens the primary pivot can be unlocked and moved once the joint is tight. This way you can be sure the handle will be out of the way no matter how you tighten it. Well done, guys. My only design change would be to put the base tightening screw to the side so the shaft of the umbrella could never hit it.

                        Comments about Interfit STR117 Umbrella Bracket with Shoe Adapter:

                        I'm hoping to start using umbrellas for light modification and my budget is tight so this was the answer. The build quality is certainly suspect and tightening the hot shoe has an annoying habit of twisting it out of alignment. It certainly seems to be flexible in how it will mount to my light stands. It's light and will tuck into a bag pretty easily, though I think long term use will render it useless. If you're in a pinch it will work fine but not for pro use for sure.

                        Inexpensive. It's good for moderate use. I needed to mount my on camera flash to a stand with an umbrealla. This is an effective solution. If I was using it everyday, professionally, I probably would have looked for sturdier construction. But for my use, the price was great!

                          I use this with a 45 inch umbrella and a Canon 580EX II flash, and it seems to be a good buy for the money. I took off the hot shoe adapter -- it was flimsy compared with one I already had. The angle of the hole for the umbrella seems to be straight, so my flash doesn't sit exactly center behind the umbrella. It doesn't affect the light emitted, as far as I can tell, and there is a swivel that can be used to aim the light.

                            Works great with my Canon 580EXII speedlights, especially given the great price.
