    This bracket secures well to standard sized light stands. I have had it for a weekend and used it a few times already. The strong solid metal suprised me. If you want REALLY light materials, go for plastic instead. But this piece will stand up to much abuse. It's thick walled socket seats nicely on the light stand once the knob is fully unscrewed to allow clearance. And once snugged onto the light stand, I just leave it there. The black knobs are plenty large enough. I am using a Raven 8' black general use light stand w/ 33" umbrella's / Olympus Fl-36R flash. One important thing I noticed that I was researching and worried about is: when using cold shoe flashes, one reviewer stated that if the metal contacts of the flash shoe continually make contact with a metal surface, it could short out the flash and damage it. This bracket has a recession in the center under the area the flash foot sits, allowing enough space that the metal does not come into contact with the contacts on my flash. That was as important to me as the sturdiness of the knobs and solidarity of the bracket itself. The knurled umbrella knob could be slightly larger, allowing more torque to be applied when tightening/ loosening the umbrella shaft. That is my only gripe, although a small one. This is a good unit to purchase.

    For use only with smaller light modifiers. The flash attachment is fixed to the adapter with screws so it can't be rotated in order to position the flash's infrared eye toward the camera. Also, it's hard to put enough torque on the screw that holds the umbrella shaft in place due to the small size of the screw head. A thumb screw should have been used here like everywhere else. This was a big disappointment and is definitely for low-budget studios.

    Best Uses

    Comments about Interfit Metal Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Flash Shoe:

    I have 6 of these that I use for weddings with OCF. I sometimes use them for portraits with small umbrellas.
    When you turn the top half of the bracket and lock it in, the teeth hold it in place. Very important that these have teeth for locking. some others do not. Seems mostly well made and the secondary lock for the flash hot shoe is very necessary and appreciated. The bottom knob which locks the bracket to the stand seems to come a little loose from time to time, but it's acceptable.
    Would recommend.

      Comments about Interfit Metal Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Flash Shoe:

      This isn't the strongest bracket available, but it's better than many of the common plastic brackets that are being sold today. It will work with most studio flat units and probably with lighter hot lights, especially those without fresnel lenses.

        Comments about Interfit Metal Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Flash Shoe:

        I purchased a couple of these to use for my Nikon SB910 Speedlights.

        My first impression was the great feel of metal. It has a nice weight and solid feel to it. I really like the screw on it that secures my flash in place. It's snug, easy to screw/unscrew unlike other similar products I have that can be a pain in the butt to unscrew. I trust my SB910 on it.

        No complaints so far. I've had mine for a couple months now and have used it mainly for outdoor/indoor portraits using a 32" shoot through umbrella. It's a simple yet effective setup and this bracket does it's job.

          I had bought a flash umbrella and stand with a similar clamp made of plastic and it broke during the first shooting session, almost cracking my flash. This one is built like a tank and has been very reliable. Great value for the money!

          Comments about Interfit Metal Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Flash Shoe:

          A friend recommended I try doing Off-Camera Flash (OCF) shooting. I purchased this bracket for an outdoor photo shoot this past weekend.

          I mounted the bracket to my light pole and secured my Canon Speedlight 580ex and Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce OM-EY (also purchased from B&H), prior to the shoot. Arriving On-Location, I just had to setup the light pole and power on the flash – ready to go. The bracket allowed me to quickly adjust the flash in any direction needed. I haven't used the Umbrella slot yet, but it looks as if would hold just fine.

          I recommend it for anyone wanting to use speedlites as an OCF. My only recommendation would be to have a larger knob to tighten it down.

                        I bought that one because I wanted a short shaft between the tilt join and the cold shoe, so the flash is not too high from the middle of the umbrella hole

                        The product design have been change a bit and the shaft is now much longer so it doesN,t do what I wanted from it

                            This bracket secures well to standard sized light stands. I have had it for a weekend and used it a few times already. The strong solid metal suprised me. If you want REALLY light materials, go for plastic instead. But this piece will stand up to much abuse. It's thick walled socket seats nicely on the light stand once the knob is fully unscrewed to allow clearance. And once snugged onto the light stand, I just leave it there. The black knobs are plenty large enough. I am using a Raven 8' black general use light stand w/ 33" umbrella's / Olympus Fl-36R flash. One important thing I noticed that I was researching and worried about is: when using cold shoe flashes, one reviewer stated that if the metal contacts of the flash shoe continually make contact with a metal surface, it could short out the flash and damage it. This bracket has a recession in the center under the area the flash foot sits, allowing enough space that the metal does not come into contact with the contacts on my flash. That was as important to me as the sturdiness of the knobs and solidarity of the bracket itself. The knurled umbrella knob could be slightly larger, allowing more torque to be applied when tightening/ loosening the umbrella shaft. That is my only gripe, although a small one. This is a good unit to purchase.

                                Strong! Flash shoe holder is made of metal so wont break on me. Umbrella screw works well and secure.

                                  I needed a lightweight cold shoe solution to put on a hand held light pole. this does the trick. I use monopods and paint poles to hold lights where I need them at local events and soccer games. Works great when I put an SB-900 on it.
