Kaiser 201100 overview

  • 1Description

This Kaiser "L" bracket is a hinged bracket made of light metal with a resilient contact surface. It features an adjustable 1/4"-20 camera screw, a metal flash shoe on top, and includes a hand strap. Collapsible for easy storage in a camera bag or pocket.

Flash brackets are designed to increase the distance between the flash and the lens in order to minimize the occurrence of redeye and flash-shadows behind the subject.

By using an "L" shaped bracket the flash is slightly off-center, which also adds a little more dimension to the face in portrait photography.

Folding Metal "L" Flash Bracket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite what I was looking for This little bracket does well, considering it's all plastic. I'm using it with my Canon5D, which is heavier than many digital cameras and even digital slr's.It handles the weight fine, but the strap on the grip is awkward and if you hold the whole setup by the handle, it feels like it may break off if abused. The handle isn't too ergonomic, either.Here's one more interesting issue: the flash mount is designed to allow the flash to be tightened and secured to the handle via the normal flash threaded mount. Canon's remote flash cord attaches to the Speedlight in the same manor, but the bottom of the remote cord mount does NOT have any mechanism to tighten itself to any flash mount. It just slides on.Because of this, the flash eventually works its way out of the handle mount. If you're not looking - it could fly all the way out tossing your flash onto the ground.The up-side to that design is that I can VERY quickly remove the flash from the handle and hold it wherever I need it if I like.But frankly, I'd expect to spend less than $20 for this. It does fold up nicely, I guess, though that's kind of a pain as well.It's pretty much exactly what I would recommend to someone who's first getting into photography, but like I said, it's pricey for what you get. Ideally, it needs to have a metal frame, a more ergonomic handle and a resolution to the flash mount issue, which I guess is really all Canon's fault. On a lighter camera, like a Digital Rebel, I think this bracket would be about right. Or maybe for a digital camcorder - something nice and light like that. Expertise: 15 years experience. I own 35mm, 6x45, 6x6 and full-frame digital. Problems Encountered: Flimsy and plastic.Handle not ergonomic enough.Handle strap is awkward. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Promaster flash and bracket kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but effective I use this as a bracket for my Sony NEX-7. Great off camera flash bracket and it's position in conjunction with the camera when you have no choice but to use direct flash. Other wise, I always bounce. I also like the idea that it folds down for easy storage in a bag. I don't recommend using this bracket for DSLR owners due to it's low and close position to the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Nice sturdy construction and it folds up for easier storage. Using with a Canon Speedlite 430EX... It makes the rig a bit off balance, but that is because of the heft of the Speedlite. I would like to try a smaller flash to see if it makes the system a bit quicker to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay But Not The Best The bracket handle make of cheap plastic, it might break on heavy gear, also this bracket make for video light is not for camera flash, if you want put camera flash on this bracket you need cold shoe adapter to prevent metal contact to bottom of your flash it may ruin it. This bracket is good for point and shoot cameras and it's stable. It is too pricey for this bracket

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as earlier model. This is replacing an earlier model and is slightly less well made. You can see where they must have managed to save 4 cents on the manufacture. Or it is a copy since the original has no brand name on it. However it will do its purpose since I only wanted the handle, not the actual bracket.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy not for medium or heavy duty This bracket is too flimsey to use with a Nikon D600 camera.� When only holding the hand grip, the bottom thin metal encased in plastic bracket flexes at least 15 degrees or better.� Not real sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple L bracket that folds up and pack easily. I was looking for a simple L bracket that would fold up and pack easily. This did exactly what I needed.
