    Phottix BG reviews

    Varos Pro BG Multi-Function Flash Shoe Umbrella Holder is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive for umbrella holder! I don't know what type of flashes and umbrellas Phottix expects you to put onto this thing but it could easily hold 30 lbs. Flash shoe itself is not as strong but it is removable. Curved bolt covers all 3 bolts hold much stronger than regular bare bolt ends and they won't damage your umbrellas and stands. I think it's worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design and execution This is perfect for my location needs where an umbrella and a flash is all I need on a tripod. Very well made out of cast and machined metal it is designed to last. Really like the built in carrying hook.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best out there I've used many angle supports and this is by far the most durable. With unique useful features you can understand it was designed by a user. It's built like a tank. This is the last one I'll have to buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Own several! I now own three of these and have turned a few other photographers onto them. Absolutely the best umbrella amount I have found, extremely well-made. Very solid, lots of options for how you want to use it. I especially like that the umbrella hole is slightly angled to help get the flash head centered in the umbrella, it also has a nice ratcheting action.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product, great job Phottix! This is my first Phottix purchase and it will not be my last as I prefer well made and sturdy products over cheap junk every day of the week. The Varios Pro BG flash shoe holder is exactly what I need for my Nikon 910 flash. Very happy customer here!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phottix Varos Pro� Great Buy Have tried many flash and umbrella holders. This is the best one I have found. Very sturdy. Does the job.� Didn't think much about it when I purchased the product. But, it has a place to hang a counter weight which really works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought this years ago... I use this with a flash and a shoot through umbrella for outdoor portraits. I have only used it a few times since I got it but it has proved invaluable. And I think I will appreciate its versatility the more I use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for it's purpose Unsure why I have been purchasing other more plasticky shoe/umbrella holders. They have broken. This falls and the stands themselves are more likely to break. So glad I got this. Will get more for the future.
