The Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket from Vello is a quick, simple way to switch between vertical and horizontal view with your camera using a shoe mount flash, without missing a shot or changing the look of your light. The Speedy Bracket smoothly rotates your camera, easily switching between horizontal and vertical positions, while keeping your flash stationary and centered above the lens at all times. It is designed so that you can use your camera's own grip to shoot photos. The Speedy Bracket's cushioned bracket arm can also double as a comfortable carrying handle.

The cold shoe can be positioned in multiple locations or removed altogether, to better accommodate Nikon SC-28 & SC-29 and other similar off-camera shoe cords.

      The bracket works fine with my Nikon D700 and puts the light exactly above the lens in both positions. But, it doesn't lock in the horizontal position and when I carry it around at an event, the camera kind of hangs at a 45 degree angle and looks kind of silly. When you shoot horizontals you must hold the bracket in the correct position with your other hand! If the bracket locked in both positiions I would give it 5 stars. It seems well built, especially for the low price.

      Reason I purchased: I cover events (charity dinners, banquets) for a local magazine. I have to use a flash and I have to work alone. With vertical shots, it's difficult to bounce or point the flash without getting bad shadows. I can't just shoot horizontal (with the flash above my camera).

      What I don't like: this really only fits a smaller DSLR. I use a battery grip on my camera (so I don't have to reach over my camera for vertical shots). This device doesn't work with the battery grip - the camera becomes too tall and won't rotate without hitting the handle on the left. The rotating platform is also too loose and can begin to rotate when I am holding the camera for horizontal shots. I can't afford a $200 custom bracket, but I can see how those are worth it.

        Comments about Vello Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket:

        I have a Canon 60D and 70D and bought this in preparation for a class I'm giving in July. There isn't much to say except it works and works well. Read the instructions on tightening the tension as you may find it switches between vertical and horizontal view too easily; however, adjusting is very easy - 1-2 screws and you're done. However, the instructions say use a 3/8" socket and that is way too big.The bracket I bought also came with the cable. Make sure yours does as well.If you have an easy on/off tripod attachment on your camera, you'll need to remove that for this to work. Not a big deal but remember where you put the attachment. All-in-all, very pleased.Nicholas.Nicholas.

            Combined with a Vello off camera flash cord the rotating flash bracket creates a nimble combination. My first session after buying the bracket was with seven cavalier spaniels. Using this set up and tripod I was able to efficiently go from shooting on the tripod to free hand and put the flash in any direction I needed. This is great when working with dogs or any other subjects otherwise challenging to control. Especially seven exuberant and friendly dogs! It's not what I would call super light weight which is the only reason I don't give it five stars.

                  Solid feel and function. Works exactly as you would expect although swing motion is slightly stiff at first and you have to get used to how to hold and move the camera because it just is a different tactile experience than just holding the camera. Only complaint is that screw that holds camera to plate falls out if not screwed into something. Love the extra holes along the arm which I will likely use to attach either other cold shoes or mics or whatever. A few edges not machined to a smooth surface. The whole thing is escellent for under $[$].

                        I recommend the bracket as it is very practical and light, also is of good quality. Not recommended for DSLR that are equipped with Grip (Battery Pack) since the bracket is small and difficult to move it.

                            Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket by Vello

                            When I mount my Canon 5D MKII, 85mm f1.2 lens or my 70-200 f2.8 and 600EX-RT Speedlite on the bracket I was extremely disappointed and feared that my camera and lens would break or bend the bracket. The mechanism design for tilting the camera from horizontal to vertical may be adequate "but only" for a light weight point & shot camera & lens. If you tighten all the lock nuts down on the rotating mechanism it gives the unit more rigidity and security but then you cannot move the camera. I have returned the Vello Rotating Flash Bracket unit.
                            I would not recommend this unit

                                ...check your fit.

                                I purchased this to use as a smaller and lighter bracket to use with my Powershot G1X and other smaller cameras. The immediate problem I discovered was that the off-center placement of the tripod socket on the G1X puts the camera in a position where the lens hits the bracket's rotation arm, and can't be used that way. My other cameras work fine with the bracket, though.

                                The bracket's rotating action appears adequate, and it is fairly well-made for the price.

                                Just make sure to check out how your camera is going to attach first...

                                  The foam handle smells a bit :(
                                  I have never used one of these but it did a fine job in getting the flash off camera.

                                        Bracket works for what it is designed for, nothing special about it. Good for the price. Cons. You cannot use a battery grip if you are flipping between landscape and portrait. Flipping mechanism is loose while in landscape. I had to modify by adding tape to one of the flipping bars

                                          I thought this might be a little bulky or heavy for its price, but I was suprised to find how balanced and easy to use it is. Love it! Great deal

                                            I bought this bracket for my new 580EXII. This is bracket is great; it rotate 90 degrees. It's light weight; but durable!

                                            The bracket works fine with my Nikon D700 and puts the light exactly above the lens in both positions. But, it doesn't lock in the horizontal position and when I carry it around at an event, the camera kind of hangs at a 45 degree angle and looks kind of silly. When you shoot horizontals you must hold the bracket in the correct position with your other hand! If the bracket locked in both positiions I would give it 5 stars. It seems well built, especially for the low price.
