      As a working Professional, I find this bracket to be the perfect blending of Functionality and Affordability. It works exactly as it should, keeping my flash centered above my lens when I'm shooting vertically or Horizontally. It's light weight is a gift when all my other equipment is so hefty.
      The few negatives...It doesn't fold flat to fit in my camera bag (that's what assistants are for, right?) and the foam grip tends to migrate up on the handle.
      All in all, I don't think you can beat this one for the price!

      This bracket is good for the money. I mounted my Nikon SB-600 speedlight to the flash mount. The flash mount didn't take the adapter I have to the PC cable trigger, but I reversed the screw clamp and it fit well.

      The only thing missing from this bracket is a slider slot. The preset holes are a bit awkward at first but it is working at very well! I only wish the flash lined up directly over the camera instead of just off center.

        Comments about Bower Flash Bracket:

        This is a decent flash bracket for the price.you may want to tighten the nut on the flip joint mine had a lot of play when turning camera for portraits flash would really swing over very quickly and hard.kind of caught me off guard. Just tighten and all is good. Attaches to camera firmly but always a good rule to check the wing nut now and then. I use it on a canon 60 D with a canon 430 EX ll flash it performs as should no other problems.

          I would have given it 5 stars, but I was dissapointed that the pad/gasket over the bottom part that screws into the bottom of the camera came off, and had to be located in my bag.

          It is good for what it is, and is ok. I wish they made one of these for lefties though. Then again, nothing is really is.

            Comments about Bower Flash Bracket:

            Very nice bracket, great price. I was concerned this wouldn't fit my D300 with battery grip, but there's plenty of room. I can't raise my built-in, on-camera flash, but don't need to anyway: if I want to command a remote flash with the camera's speedlight, I just raise the bracket arm.

            I recommend the shortest (1.5 ft) flash cord.

            Since the arm can't be locked into position and has no indexed detents, be careful it doesn't swing as you tilt the bracket.

              Comments about Bower Flash Bracket:

              Seems a little awkard to me, but I haven't used a bracket for flash before. My only complaints would be that the articulation is limited and there is no way to secure the bracket when in an alternate orientation (something that could easily have been addressed with the addition of a simple wingnut). Works fine for me, though, and does just what it is supposed to. Fits my 20D/580EX just fine.

                What else can one say about this product. It's great, worth the cash and helps get that flash off the top of your camera. Great for beginers or pros. Get one for yourself even if your just begining flash photography like myself..

                    Use this for events. Good build quality. solid construction. never feel afraid that the flash will fall off, very sturdy mount.

                    the grip can be moved up and down a little which might bother someone but its such a little nuance that you wont notice.

                    will reccomend.

                      This is a great flash bracket for price. Solid construction and easy to use.

                      The foam handle grip is loosely fitted to the bracket, over time I suspect it will crack and fall apart.

                      I was disappointed with how large it is compared to my camera. I use a Canon 7D and the bracket, although it fits, is slightly larger than I am comfortable using. It has an adjustable height but even on its most compact settings, the bracket arm rises 4 inches above the top of my camera. The lower bar is fairly long, with my camera screwed in at a comfortable distance from the handle, it covers the battery door, requiring you to unscrew the bracket to replace batteries.

                      All in all for the price it's a good deal. The large size is easy to manage and not an overall issue.

                                    The flash bracket is one of the best investments I've made. Easy to use and provides great results.

                                        I use this product for event photography, wedding photography and runway shows. It works great and have not had any problems with it so far. I have not found any negatives. The construction of the bracket seems sturdy and well built.

                                          As a working Professional, I find this bracket to be the perfect blending of Functionality and Affordability. It works exactly as it should, keeping my flash centered above my lens when I'm shooting vertically or Horizontally. It's light weight is a gift when all my other equipment is so hefty.
                                          The few negatives...It doesn't fold flat to fit in my camera bag (that's what assistants are for, right?) and the foam grip tends to migrate up on the handle.
                                          All in all, I don't think you can beat this one for the price!

                                          This bracket is good for the money. I mounted my Nikon SB-600 speedlight to the flash mount. The flash mount didn't take the adapter I have to the PC cable trigger, but I reversed the screw clamp and it fit well.
