The Flip Bracket With Vello TTL Off-Camera Flash Cord for Canon Cameras Kit
from B&H Photo
combines the compact, lightweight Flip Bracket with the ability to remotely fire off-camera Canon Speedlights using the Vello Off-Camera Flash Cord.
The Flip Bracket comes complete with a machined, shoe-type flash mount, which is interchangeable with other optional flash mounts. Its compact size is perfect for travel and convenient for storage in camera bags. The Camera Flip bracket accepts Stroboframe anti-twist camera plates for a reliably sure, rigid connection. Its low-profile Rotary-Link system lets you turn your camera from horizontal to vertical with a flick of the wrist, while the flash stays centered above the lens. Its cushioned neoprene foam grip is comfortable for both shooting and carrying.
The Vello Off-Camera Flash Cord allows photographers to create unique and dramatic lighting styles that are not possible with a traditional shoe-mounted strobe, by removing the flash from the camera's hot shoe altogether. One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount.
This coiled cord measures 1.5' (0.5 m), which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Shooters looking to mount the flash to a larger bracket or to a stand with an umbrella would probably need a longer version of this cable.
