    Not sturdy enough to hold an umbrella

    By Rommel

    Comments about Dot Line Umbrella Mount for Speedlights:

    Not sturdy enough to hold a flash and an umbrella. No matter how I tight the locking pin but the umbrella keeps falling. Don't waste your money on this.

      Comments about Dot Line Umbrella Mount for Speedlights:

      I've used this mount to angle my flash and it's attached flash-mounted lightbox, towards my subject. Works like a charm for my needs. I don't own an umbrella, but maybe one day I will give it a try since i have this mount.

            Not something I would mount my Nikon 910 Speedlight on. The flash shoe slips off very easily. Just not well designed.

            The umbrella mount works perfectly. Holds the umbrella nice and steady and the head works perfectly with my Nikon sb800.

              Comments about Dot Line Umbrella Mount for Speedlights:

              this product is easy to use and the ball joint makes it very versatile. Others have complained about the angle of the hot shoe being crooked, but it is completely adjustable, they just did not know what they were doing. I do recommend this and have since bought another one of these for my other light stand.

                You mount this adapter directly on the a light stand's threads. The Speedlite slides on just like your camera's hotshoe. A ball mount allows infinite angles for perfect illumination.

                Hotshoe Doesn't line up

                By Mike

                Comments about Dot Line Umbrella Mount for Speedlights:

                Hotshoe bracket holder does not line up with hole for umbrella, making one have to swivel speedlight 15-45 degrees in order to shoot through umbrella. Broke on 2nd usage, poorly made. Not recommended

                One fatal flaw

                By Mike

                from CT

                Comments about Dot Line Umbrella Mount for Speedlights:

                I love the design for the most part. Fits on standard light stands, has 3/8 and 5/8 screw adpapter. The one fatal flaw that i found is that plastic show mount on the top of the item does not line up at all with the hole for the umbrella. I thought that maybe it was just manufacturing issue, so i tried to tighten to make it line up and the screw broke. I supose that this really isn't a huge problem because normally you can just swivel the speedlight but to me it didn't make sense.
