RPS Lighting RS-0420/N10 overview

  • 1Description

The Dot Line RPS Digital Flash Bracket includes all the necessary components for using a shoe mount flash raised above the lens, off-camera. Included are the required off-camera shoe cord that maintains full TTL flash control (including i-TTL), 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 moves the flash centered over the lens both for horizontal and vertical compositions.

Compatible with Nikon Pro SLR cameras, e.g. D2 series, D1 series, D200, D100, F6, F5, F100, and MC-26 Adapter Cord.

Electronic shutter release to trigger the camera directly from the bracket
Durable heavy-duty off-camera shoe cord
Can be used either right-handed or left handed as the photographer prefers
Adjustable flash extension from 6 to 18" above the camera lens
All metal construction with a rubber grip for comfort
1/4"-20 mounting thread for use on a tripod, and a standard accessory shoe (non-TTL) on the top of the extension post

    RPS Lighting RS-0420/N10 reviews

    Digital Flash Bracket for Nikon Pro SLR is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Ceilings are not a problems anymore I'm an amateur photographer using this bracket for indoor photo shoots where there are high ceiling. The bracket has a good design for getting the flash high off the camera for a better lighting coverage. But during a long photo shoot the bracket does get heavy after awhile when using bigger lenses for low light situations. But this will help build up arm muscles which isn't a bad thing. The only real cons I can say is that there should be a better way of locking the platform in the vertical and horizontal positions. The camera will move during a photo when you get a shot lined up. The safety foot on the bracket is only for a left handed setup. Right handed you will be using your expensive lens to help support the full rig when you set it down on a table.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy flash bracket This is my first flash bracket purchase and used it with a Nikon D300 and SB900 flash head. Asd you may knwo, the SB900 flash head is larger and heavier than its SB600 & SB800 sisters. I used it to shoot one wedding and had it attached to the camera for about 3 hours. After a while, it got quite heavy and cumbersome. However, its usefulness far exceeded the weight factor and my group photos turned out lovely. I like the fact that it includes the TTL cord and remote shutter release cord. The shutter release cord IS hard to attach and feels like it will slip out, but it didn't and all went well. It includes its own carry pouch and is assembled in two pieces. It attaches fairly quickly to the camera (again, this is something you need to practice several times before taking it on an important shoot). It does attach to a tripod, but you need a really sturdy one (mine was not). Before the wedding, I used it every day to get used to the feel and mechanics of it and did several test shots in the church building to make sure the settings were what I liked. It takes some practice and time to get used to flipping it from portrait to landscape mode. Overall, I am pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bracket is good for price but needs more The product is very customizable. The shutter release can be moved below the bracket to be more comfortable. I think more options could be added. The swivel of the camera is nice as it allows the trigger hand to stay stable, but, 1. The release lever is tight, in the vertical position, the release is not used, you have a manual lever to move to lock and release. When you go back to horizontal, the force needed to lock the release is too much. Finally the shutter release plug is very very poor. First it is plastic and does not have a thread to properly secure it to the camera. The plug feels cheap and likely to break. Also, the cord placement is bad, when the camera is in the vertical mode, the plug cord is pressed by the left hand and will cause a failure over time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money This frame has nothing but problems. (1) The camera platform will not lock into the vertical position. You have to hold it there! In the horizontal position there is a very poorly engineered locking mechanism. (2) The plug that attaches to the camera 10-pin socket for the handle-mount shutter release connects at a very bad angle. Instead of aligning up or down the camera body, it sticks out to the side. So if you shoot vertically, it is difficult to control the camera without touching/stressing the plug in the socket. And if you hit the plug, the remote will not work. (3) The cord for the remote flash attachment started coming out within 10 minutes of being hooked-up!! (4) If you mount a camera with a short zoom lens, and try to hold the rig by the padded handle, the frame will flex. I did not even try to use the rig with a 70-200 lens mounted. If you are thinking about buying this setup, do yourself a favor and go look at one first. Try it out. You'll see, and you'll thank me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Unit. Flexible and efficient This is a nice unit that will work for events like weddings, graduation celebrations, etc. If this is your primary type of photography you may want to invest in a stronger construction unit, but for every now and then type of work this is a great unit at a good price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bracket for the money Nicely made product and a good value for the money. My only suggestion for improvement would be that the camera be able to lock in the horizontal and vertical positions. As it is now, the camera only stays in that position through friction and/or gravity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good bracket! I've tried numerous brackets and this one seems the most user-friendly. Solid construction. Take some time to get to know it. This is actually my second one. I wore the first one out over two years of very hard shooting. But then, I'm very hard on brackets.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK. But some quirks Technically, it does the job. But screws seem to get loose on me. Specifically the screw that holds the trigger and the screw that holds the camera into the bracket. My camera ends turning around a lot when attached to it. Moving from portrait to landscape is not as easy or smooth at all, I'm not comfortable with it, I feel like my camera will fall off. One time I used it, my camera turned and ended up facing me. Quite embarrassing as people were posing in front of me during an event when this happened. On a positive note, having my camera off shoe did make my pictures better and saved me a lot of processing time in Lightroom. It is also easy to transport around, that said, give yourself ample time before the event to set it up. Usually takes me 5-10 minutes. Slipping the camera in can also be a challenge.
