The Dot Line RPS Digital Flash Bracket includes all the necessary components mounting a flash above the lens of cameras featuring Canon's 3-pin connection. Included are the required off-camera shoe cord that maintains full E-TTL and E-TTL II flash control, even with the latest digital cameras, and an electronic cable release that allows triggering the shutter directly from the bracket.

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. The rotating camera platform the flash centered over the lens both for horizontal and vertical compositions.

    RPS Lighting RS-0420/C3 reviews

    Digital Flash Bracket Kit for Canon 3-Pin Cameras is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, Not Great I received this bracket as a gift and used it for about one week with a Canon 5D and a 580EX. The are only a few issues. First, you can only lock the bracket in the vertical position, not the horizontal position. Second, the TTL Flash cord does not connect properly. The leads do not line up properly and the camera loses TTL flash unless you wiggle the flash in the hot shoe. Third, at full extension, the arm of the bracket feels a little bit loose. Fourth, the trigger button feels cheep and is made of light plastic. Other than that, the bracket is good. The flash gets very high and the grip is comfortable. It is lightweight and relatively strong. Expertise: Beginning Pro Problems Encountered: Off Camera TTL Cord does not line up with leads on my 580EXTrigger button is cheap plastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact, but cheesy cords This bracket has worked out fairly well for me except the original off-shoe cord lasted two months and I'm waiting for the remote cord to go next. The replacement cords are much better but not compatible with the Canon EX580 Mk II flash shoe boot. The camera plate also tends to flex after using it for a year; play in where it slides in the verticle rails.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice It is big, but there's so much that can be done with it. The swithcing from vertical to horizontal shots with my Canon EOS30D is done in a fraction of a second. You can take pictures with either hand at any position. I did search around for which bracket to choose from. As much as this bracket costs, it well worth the price. Comes with a carrying case which is very useful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I use the bracket to get the flash off the camera. I have an extension cord for the flash/camera connection, but it gets tiresome holding the flash with one hand and the camera with the other. This bracket has an 18 extension arm that allows the flash to be positioned well above the lens. With some form of light modification (a small softbox or a Lumiquest Bounce) it gives great butterfly lighting. Don't know how I ever got along without it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad-has a flaw I did a fair amount of research on flash brackets before making a decison to purchase this one. The trigger is very touchy, and can rapidly fire shots if the camera and bracket are laid on it's back. Ah, the fun of the on-camera delete function! Once I used this bracket for about 15 minutes I felt very comfortable with it. Switching between landscape and portrait is very quick, this is a huge plus for me. However, the reason I would not suggest this product, and the reason I gave it 3 stars, is a fit/finish issue. Once the camera is mounted to the bracket, the bottom horizontal bracket rattles and is not tight to the vertical support. Positioning the camera tight against the vertical support helps, but the risk is run of maring or damaging the finish on the camera. All funtions of my 40D and 580EX work perfectly with this unit. Had it not been for the rattle/looseness issue, I would have suggested this product. ... I am in the process of setting up various lighting equipment that will eliminate the amount of flash I use.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Design This bracket is so poorly designed on so many levels. Firstly, the cable assembly that attaches to the camera flash sync is poorly made. I had to fuss with it a few times in order to get it to work. When I am paid to photograph I don't have time to play around with poorly constructed cables. There is a snap-lock when the camera is in the landscape position BUT not in the vertical (portrait) position. DUH!!! The user has to slide over a rod to stop the camera from swinging out if you don't swing the rod into place. Really an awful design. Also, the hot shoe for the flash does not stay in place on the top bracket. The hot shoe has 2 screws that prevent it from sitting flat. OMG, are they joking? No matter how tight you turn the hot shoe retaining screw, the flash will still easily turn. Brilliant!! And finally, the rubber self-stick mats that go on the top of the flash bracket do not stick. When the flash turns (as stated above) the rubber mats turn as well. Just a worthless product, in my mind. I did purchase Custom Brackets Digital PRO-E Camera Rotation Bracket and can not be happier with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKED PERFECTLY This is the first time using anything like this. It worked very well for me when shooting a wedding. It was quick and easy to switch form horizontal to landscape. With the camera, heavy lens and flash, it was quite heavy after about 3 hours of pretty much continues shooting. Would highly recommend it for anyone needing something like this for their photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did its job, worked like a charm! Use this product in our Wedding Photography. Set up remote lights around the dance floor and trigger them from our cameras with our speedlights. Only thing about the one I purchased is that a little lever that allows the bottom arm to fold up (so it fits in the black carrier) was a bit bent.
