General Brand VA320 Overview

  • 1Description

This bracket provides an economical way to do both horizontal and vertical flash photography. This "L" bracket features two flash shoes, one for shooting with the camera in the standard horizontal position, and one for shooting in the vertical position.

Flash brackets are designed to increase the distance between the flash head and the lens in order to minimize the occurrence of redeye and to also reduce 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.

General Brand VA320 Reviews

Right Angle Bracket with 2 Flash Shoes is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected This product arrived and was exactly as I expected. One thing to note is that the verticle arm isn't exactly 90 degrees; it's more like 75 or 80. This isn't a problem, and actually provides for a better off-axis point for your flash to sit which further reduces the weird shadows when the flash is directly over the lens. In addition to using this with a Canon 430EXII flash, I also use a small LED continuous light for video. I put my external DSLR mic on the camera's hot shoe and the LED light on the bracket's top-most cold shoe. My handheld shots are much more stable when I use this bracket. Great buy for a great price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, lousy construction I use this bracket to hold a continuous light, LED, on top and a wireless receiver on the side. I've used this for personal and professional applications with a consumer level camcorder where a larger, pro-level video camera was either too large, too intrusive or too intimidating. I enjoyed the simple, light, compact design and low price. Unfortunately, the unit did not last long. The screws that fasten the actual cold shoes to the bracket stripped and would no longer hold my gear securely. The unit may be good enough for occasional and very light use for lightweight gear but nothing more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy the Vello Instead Save your money on this one and pay a few dollars more and get the Vello Flash Bracket instead Vello has silicone rubber on both the top and bottom of the mounting rail so it grips to the bottom or your camera and if you are using it on a tripod the bottom rubber will grip better and prevent slippage. The Vello is $ bucks more and worth it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the price I don't have any other brackets to compare it to but it gets my Canon 580EX off camera. To go from vertical to horizontal you have to swap it onto the other mount but it's fairly quick and easy. I couldn't see the advantage of spending 3x or 4x's the price and still can't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Goody Two Shoes ... I am using it to mount an older Vivitar 283 to my D80. I am using the 283 with a Wein Safe-Sync to isolate the high trigger voltage. I was concerned about the height and weight of the combination of the two on my D80's flash mount. So now I have the Safe-Sync on the camera linked to the 283 on the flash mount. One unexpected advantage of the two shoes on this flash mount is that when I remove the bracket from the camera, I store the Safe-Sync on the second shoe. I never have to look for it.I am a little concerned about the construction, right away I had to tighten the very small Phillips screws that fasten the chrome flash slot to the black bracket bar. And maybe its just my flash unit, but seems that the chrome bracket could fit my flash foot a little more snugly. If I was bumping shoulders and elbows with hordes of press photographers I would definitely want a more rugged unit, but for now, it suits my needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Bracket Solid Price This bracket is a buy. I picked up a similar one that was a buck or two cheaper and I can't believe it but the difference is noticeable. Unlike the other brackets in this price range ($10-$20) this one has a right angle which is huge for me because the more obtuse angle of the others placed my shotgun mic further away from my subjects. This one points my mic right at what I'm shooting. The other bracket I got had a loose shoe within 10 minutes of useage, this one has remained solid this whole month. The grip is also superior

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Little Accessory I got this bracket to help me get my flash off camera and attached to a miniball for some macro photography work and for some event photography. This is a very inexpensive yet very sturdy little bracket. It does not fold but is lightweight enough and compact enough to easily toss into a gadget bag or the outside pocket of a backpack. It holds my 40D with ease and has a comfortable rubberized grip. One of the shoe mounts was a tad loose upon arrival, but this was easily fixed with an eyeglass screwdriver to tighten the small screws in. The bottom of the arm easily attaches to the camera and holds it quite steady. You can also tripod mount this bracket to a standard tripod thread mount size 1/4 making the attachment of a QR plate a cinch. Overall, this is a very effective little bracket and I look forward to using it even more in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh The top cold shoe broke off within the first few minutes that I had this. No worries though, because it was too small for all of my Nikon flashes anyway. I wasn't too surprised, considering the price. This bracket also smells terrible, if that makes a difference to anyone. I'll probably just get a better one next time. I can't imagine it'll be too long until the other cold shoe breaks off as well from the weight of a flash.
