    SP Studio Systems SPBRACKS reviews

    Multi-Bracket is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but flash shoe is bad This thing is sturdy, but when you open it the flash shoe is on the wrong end like everyone says, just switch it from bottom to top. The flash shoe is made to try to accompany all types of flashes made by different companies. Thats where the problem comes in. With my Nikon Nikon SB800 flash, it'll slip off easily so I just took my flash stand that came with my flash and replaced the SP flash shoe. Now it works great. very sturdy. But just remember if you don't want to trash the few hundred you paid for your flash you better replace the default flash shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, yet works great. If you are a Strobist, or would just like a little more light in the studio this bracket works great. If your flash can function as a slave, this bracket works great to make an inexpensive kicker or hair light out of your flash. Mount this to a boom, and hang your flash, and you have a great hair light. Small light weight. No worries about hanging 20 pounds over a models head. Mount this and your flash to a short stand and you have a small, inexpensive kicker. Great for providing just a little more light for a full length shot without having to use a huge softbox.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a pretty thing, but it does its job. Just getting into the strobist game with these after having used low power continuous lights in my home studio for product shots. The tilting/swiveling functions work very well, you can aim your light at pretty much anything. It kinda bugs me that the strobe is secured by means of a small screw jamming into one side of the hotshoe. That said, the strobe hasn't come loose in the few times outdoors and indoors I've used it. I think a more confidence inspiring design would be to have a proper block perpendicular to the hot shoe that prevents the strobe from coming off. I'll continue to use these nonetheless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adjustable lightstand bracket These brackets are great! I bought two brackets to use with my light stands and Nikon speedlights. I plan to add softboxes soon. The brackets should work equally well with dedicated studio stobes and softboxes. My light stands have standard 5/8-inch diameter tops, so I removed the bottom removable studs that came with the brackets and mounted the brackets directly on the light stands. This is nice, because fewer mechanical connections make for a more secure system. Similarly, I did not use the included cold shoe, because I screwed my Nikon speedlight stands directly to a top male studs. I prefer the Nikon speedlight stand to the cold shoe, because the speedlight locks in to the stand with a pin. However, having the cold shoe may come in handy some day. Some competing products don't include a cold shoe. Having the removable studs gives me flexibility. In other circumstances, such as when I mount one of the brackets on a tripod, I can just insert the removable stud and screw the combination to the tripod's bolt. Actually, I keep a couple of old tripods for this purpose, and I leave a removable stud screwed to each tripod. That way, I can just drop a bracket on a stud, tighten the securing bolt on the bracket and go. I found the knobs on the securing bolts to be comfortable to use and easy to tighten and loosen. In addition, the securing bolts hold the studs, light stand, umbrella rod, etc. securely, without having to over-tighten them. Similarly, the angle adjusting handle is well designed. It's spring loaded and pulls out slightly, so you can change its angle, without loosening or tightening the angle hold. This is nice, because, after tightening the angle hold, I can make the handle point down, so it won't catch a cable or someone walking by the stand. The bracket allows me to adjust the angle of the light over just about 180 degrees, so I can point a light anywhere from straight up to straight down. The body of the bracket appears strong and well made. Although the body is plastic, it is reinforced in critical places with metal. Everything (except the removable studs, which are invisible in use) is flat black. The price is right, and I can't think of anything I'd like improved.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality = Price This is a great item to have and is offered at a great price, however you get what you pay for in quality - so just consider that. Luckily they are so cheap, replacements are affordable as needed. I had mine for two weeks, and yesterday the adapter fell off of a table (about 3' off the ground) and snapped apart at the joint. It's now unusable. Bottom line: if durabiltiy is an issue for you, you might want to shell out a few more dollars for a metal adapter. Otherwise it works as intended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality bracket This bracket securely holds a flash and umbrella, as expected. Some notes: the fit and finish are not as good as on higher end brackets; the thumb screw that secures the umbrella bites into plastic rather than a metal nut, so it will eventually strip; the cold shoe flash clamp is hard to twist (it's tiny and very poorly threaded). On the plus side, the bracket is easy to adjust for angle and works well enough for the money. There are cheaper brackets available through other retailers, but B&H's honesty and integrity makes the sale worthwhile.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flash Mount Not Secure No matter how hard I tried, I could not get my ... flash to stay securely attached. My flash ended up falling off a fully extended light stand and breaking. I had to swap the flash mount out for a different one to continue to use the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Nokon SB900 Heard all the horror stories about the thick foot on the SB-900 speed light -put your worries to rest. Fits like a glove even with a layer of protective electrical tape on the inside of the foot.Works like a charm, solid construction, raising a $ flash 12 feet off the ground and giving it a substantial lean needs confidence.
