The QuickDraw Rotating Flash Bracket from Vello positions your flash unit well above the camera body and can quickly and smoothly rotate the flash 90º as you switch from horizontal to vertical shooting. With the flash detached from the body you are less likely to get red-eye effect, and with the rotating mechanism the flash is always above the lens, eliminating side shadows and providing a balanced and effective illumination.

Five mounting holes on the camera platform allow for almost any camera to utilize the bracket. Choose the hole that best balances your camera and tighten it in place with the mounting knob. Attach the flash unit to the bracket's accessory shoe by loosening the red knob, inserting the flash into the accessory shoe and tightening. Connect your flash cable to the flash unit and wrap it around or secure it to the bracket arm and you are ready to shoot.

The flash arm rotates 180º with a smooth and easy flip for when you need to shoot vertical. The padded grip is a comfortable way to stabilize your camera when shooting and is strong enough to be used as a handle for the entire system when not shooting. 

The accessory shoe can be positioned in one of two locations or unscrewed and removed to accommodate the Nikon SC-28 and SC-29 or other off-camera shoe cords. 

Adjustable cold shoe accepts almost any shoe-mount flash or accessory
Comfortable, soft hand grip can be used as a carrying handle.
Can be used with or without battery grip
Sturdy, lightweight aluminum construction
Locking mount for use with a tripod
Lens-to-Flash Distance 11" (27.9 cm)
Bracket Height 8" (20.3 cm)

    When I was looking for a bracket, I was looking for something that would accomodate my Nikon D90, 7000 with [battery drive} and D3000. I was not disappointed. This product fits me perfectly. Great quality for the price. I don't think this product could handle
    a very heavy camera with drive with flash. However,if you own the above with a SB 400, SB 300
    SB 600 SB 700 or SB 800, or similar, this unit will do the trick.
    I should also say something about customer service at B+H. Excellent. They really have your best interests at heart and they REALLY know their product{s).
    Canadians out there. This bracket is as good if not better than what we can find in our local stores;especially on price point.
    I purchased this product by the way.

    the overall construction is amazing for the cost it has two short falls one livable the other possible catastrophic, the first is if you use a sync cord and the 1/4-20 stud you have to realy crank it down other wise if you try and turn your flash the whole base turns, this i fixed by getting another knob that was big enough to grab and also replace the oem pad with a rubber washer. The second is the 1/4-20 base knob for the camera, the stud is made of aluminum and is necked down to pass through the frame and spin so as to allow the knob to tighten Imo i feel this is a weak point, this knob also has a threaded hole in it's base for tri-pod mount putting even more stress, my fix was to replace this knob with a stainless steel shaft this i did on a lathe but with a hack saw and a file one could make a new knob. The new knob is a bit larger size with a 1/4-20 brass insert from hardware store same for stainless steel bolt you cut up to make a shaft. to me it was well worth the effort to make an awesome flash bracket now 5 ***** bottom line, I trust my own engineering in Metal fabrication and the OEM knob failed my QC test [*] replace shaft or a [$] lens or camera body, you choose

      This product is well made and very convenient to use. It allows me to have one flash close to the camera, while the camera's hot shoe is used to hold a radio trigger used to trigger remote flash lights.

      As a casual photography enthusiast interested in flash photography, I needed a cheap way to get my flash out of the hot shoe. This fits the bill. My only complaint is the cheap, shoddy construction, but you get what you pay for.

                Barely holds my 580ex flash.
                Does not lock in position and slides forward with any weight.
                Doesn't go into natural position with TTL cord on camera hot shoe.. leaves flash tilted.

                Reduces red eye

                      I like being able to shift this into vertical when shooting a portrait. It moves into place easily. I was concerned about being able to tighten the flash on it without slipping and so far it's been fine. When I opened it it had a horrible smell, that's still airing out. But other than that I like it. It helps reduce distracting shadows and red eye, for an affordable price.

                          The bracket has a solid metal construction. However, the foam covering the handle is loose, rotating and sliding up and down, making it difficult to hold the camera when mounted on this bracket. I had to cover the metal handle with some tape and then pull the foam cover over it to make the foam more stabile.

                              When I saw this item on B&H's site, I couldn't believe the price. Just for kicks, I ordered one and tried it out with my Canon 70D and 430EX II flash.

                              It worked as described, and did it smoothly without hassle.

                              This is a bargain! FIVE stars.

                                    Ordered this to elevate my shoe-mounted flash just enough to eliminate red-eye without the nuisance of pre-flashes. Works great. I especially love the foam grip.

                                    Great for a first flash bracket purchase. Helps you get a feel for what you may ultimately want. Camera mouting thumb screw is alluminum so a trip to the hardware store or online bolt vendor is on my to-do list.
