The Kirk Macro Flash Bracket with Quick Release allows you to quickly add to your camera a multi-joint system for holding and adjusting your flash or accessories. For quick and secure mounting of most cameras, this bracket features an Arca-style quick release clamp. This will require the use of a readily-available optional camera plate, including camera specific models with additional features or enhanced security.

The deluxe joint system features a pivoting ball head just above the handle, this allows for easily adjusting the position of the flash. There are even multiple positions for the shaft, making it easy to get the flash into custom positions. The flash shoe quick-release plate features an anti-twist lip and there is a lock pin on the mount for additional safety.

The L-bracket is adjustable, meaning precise adjustments are easily made and there are sensor guides for checking placement. Also, aside from having a 1/4"-20 threaded socket, the base of this bracket is Arca-compatible for use with an Arca-type tripod head.

    Macro Flash Bracket with Quick Release is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very well made, but expensive bracket I bought this QR bracket because I was tired of my home made bracket that offered little in terms of quick attachment or flexibility. The Kirk bracket offers a very easy method of attachment, especially since I no longer need to unscrew my arca plate off my camera to attach my home built bracket. The Kirk bracket offers many options in terms of flexibility as to where you can position your flash. For true macro work, you probably will only use a handful of these options though. And while the new design offers more options than the older version (based on what I have read about the old version, never used it), I felt it could offer a bit more flexibility. The ball socket right above the handle is not a flexible as I would want it to be. The cut outs (just like on a ball head when you would want to point the camera straight up or down) for moving the arms at a 45 degree angle cannot be individually rotated and lined up, so you are kind of limited as to how you can position the arm the flash bracket attaches to. Its hard to explain. I would also want the ability to position the flash further back instead of having it hang further out past the lens hood. This would not be a problem if you were using a 150mm-180mm macro lens that is longer, but I am using a Tamrom 90mm VC. I liked to angle the flash right behind the lens hood, and with the Kirk bracket I can only do this when I position the flash on the right side of the lens. Cannot do it when its on the left side of the lens. Extra icing on the cake would be if it could fold down flat.
