Vello QuickDraw Rotating Flash Bracket

You Pay: $19.95
Product Highlights
  • Smoothly Flips Flash Unit 90º
  • Keeps Flash Unit Always Above the Lens
  • Eliminates Red-eye and Side Shadows
  • Compatible with Most Cameras and Flashes
  • Bottom Mount for Tripod Use
  • Sturdy, Lightweight Aluminum Design
  • Soft Rubber Hand Grip

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)
Width 8" (20.3 cm)
Weight 10.4 oz (295 g)

    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

      Comments about Vello QuickDraw Rotating Flash Bracket:

      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.

                        Got this bracket to try it out, cuz I can't buy the big ticket items. But I was VERY Happy with this bracket. It was AWESOME for the Price. The only thing is, it is a little tight fit with my camera with the battery grip on it, and the arm holding the flash is super easy to flip over. But overall a GREAT product!

                          My old flash bracket (pre-DSLR days) did not have a clamping function like this one, so when using the remote adapter for the flash it could fall off the bracket. This one with the clamp works great - no more worries about breaking my expensive flash. I would strongly recommend this bracket and B&H Photo based upon this purchase experience.

                            I loathe on-camera flashes as the quality of light is terrible compared to off-camera. But who has 3 hands - two for the camera and one for holding the flash.

                            This is a great solution to get the flash off your camera and give you more natural light.

                            It's light, but can be cumbersome.

                                Was much more robust then the picture led me to believe.

                                  This is better than I expected. It works great with or without a battery pack. I will be buying another one for my back up camera.

                                  There are adjustment screws, if you need to tweak the bracket, to suit your brand of camera/flash.

                                  You will not be disappointed with this bracket

                                    It has served its purpose and works fine. I have no experience with any other flash extension, but this seems to do the job. And the price is great.

                                      I use this with a TTL cord to take photos of people when I don't want to have to worry about red-eye. The flash bracket is sturdy and versatile, and I consider it an excellent value.
