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.

    Doesn't fit bigger camera / battery grip

    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.

    Effective sturdy bracket with nice foam hand-grip; enables flash to sit up high to avoid red-eye. Will be good with wild-life shots as I detest having to photoshop the eyes. Have to tighten camera to cork covered base to avoid twisting. Good price

      Comments about Vello Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket:

      I love this. It's sturdy, works as expected, includes the flash mount, bolts and pad (which other websites' brackets do not) and fits my camera perfectly (Nikon). The only criticism I have is that the bolt holding the camera in place does not get very tight, so the camera can come a little (very little) loose as you use the device, causing the camera to spin a bit as you try to rotate it. This would not, however, deter me from purchasing the product again.

            Really comes in handy for using bounce flash indoors without having to flip/rotate the flash head every time I switch between landscape and portrait shot. This bracket which allows the camera to rotate while leaving flash centered along lens axis practically eliminates right-side shadow when taking portrait shots compared to using flash attached to camera.

            So far so good with this bracket. It's pretty sturdy and the bolts are tight. It's taken a little adjusting of the bolts to work smoothly and keep it from rotating while adjusting my lens. All around good product. I shot a birthday party last wknd. and it worked well. I will be useing it to shoot a wedding in two weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

            Comments about Vello Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket:

            Like the design and functionality of the product, however, a few minor changes would make it much better. Upper flash arm is not adjustable for height. An inch or two of adjustment would be helpful, also a little more rigidity in material choice would eliminate some flex and bounce of flash unit. The foam "handle" could be thicker and a different density.

                      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.

                              Sturdy, great quality, less expensive alternative to the name brand versions.

                                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 $[$].
