    Vello CB-900 reviews

    CB-900 Flexible Macro Flash Bracket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vello Flexible Arca Style Flexible Macro Bracket CB-900 Vello Flexible Arca Style Flexible Macro Bracket CB-900 The Vello Macro bracket is a very easy accessory to get hooked onto. This unit is straight forward and so easy to use. A Cold Shoe with a 12 padded flexible are allows you to place your flash or constant light just right for the perfect up-close picture. I found that when doing a photo shoot that by holding the padded flex arm as a handle and the shutter side of the camera it gives you the ability to hold your shots steady and very stable. It will work with any 1/4 - 20 mount or any camera or video camera. It will fit to a flash, LED light. This is a great accessory for anyone that need light up a small items you photograph. I would recommend this to all who want better images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Flash bracket I've tried. I love this flash bracket. I've bought 4 or five others in this price range and wasn't satisfied with any of them. The really nice thing about this is the flexible support. It's plenty long and sturdier than I expected. It looks very much the same as a microphone goose neck. What I discovered after just a short while of working with this is with and extention flash cord to the Flash mounted on the bracket, It easier to switch between landscape and portrait mode than even much more expensive brackets I've tried. Would definitely recomend this, especially for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Goose-neck needs work I bought this to try for macro lighting. I'm using it with a full sized flash, TTL cord, and a lightweight light modifier on the flash. The goose-neck is a little frustrating. The angles you can achieve are limited as it's stiff enough that it's hard to bend more drastically and ends up just kinda leaning over. At the same time it's loose enough that it droops a little as you use it with a flash on the end. For the price this is okay. I do really like the bottom bracket which allows the whole thing to sit flat on a table. In the end I'll keep this and try it out more but may end up sticking with a left handed bracket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bracket at a good price I bought this bracket together with the Vello Mini Softbox for close up macro shots. The best part is that I can use Nikon's CLS wireless control so I don't even need a remote cord. This simplifies the setup and reduces leverage on the arm since the flash is mounted directly to it. Even when my SB-800 is positioned so there's no line of sight from the built-in flash, it works perfectly and has yet to misfire even once after several hundred shots. I did have to add a slightly larger washer to the screw which attaches the arm to the base as the connection was a bit unstable before. The bracket and softbox together were less than 40 bucks and it all fits in my bag. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great item! There are a lot of crazy expensive, spidery looking contraptions out there for macro lighting. If you like to travel light and use a small strobe or LED light,� then this is well worth a look. It's durable and well-made. It looks like it will last a very long time. A tad heavy but it balances well when mounted. If the cold shoe does not stay rotated where you want it, just stack some lock washers on the 1/4-20 stud and tighten it down. A gem of a product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with steadicam! I decided to try this as a solution for holding an led light next to my camera while it's on my one handed gimbal (zhiyun crane) and it works great! Screws into the bottom 1/4 20 of the gimbal grip. Turns it into an easy to use two handed gimbal and gets that led light up near the camera. It's flexible so I can bend the light to point wherever as I need to while filming. Love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good for the Price. Looks reasonably well made and the flexible arm is more convenient than a rigid arm with ball and socket joints. Seems to have a good balance of flexibility and sturdiness, at least with a smaller flash unit attached. The grippy rubber on the base makes for a firm attachment to my camera. All up, much better than I expected for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's good but... The shoe mount at the top is screwed in. So, if you want to rotate the flash a bit, instead you will just loosen it. It's still worth the bucks though. Nice and stable.
