Jobu Design FB-TM2 overview

  • 1Description

The FB-TM2 Top-Mount Flash Bracket from Jobu Design is a straight flash bracket that is for use with a telephoto lens and a top-mount gimbal style head. It can also be used with a ball head or handheld. The bracket mounts directly to a replacement foot or lens plate, and therefore doesn't need to be adjusted to shoot in a vertical orientation.

The clamp is Arca-type compatible, and it requires a plate with a double dovetail design. You need 0.75" of free room to attach the bracket to the plate. This allows the lens to shoot in a vertical orientation by simply releasing the lens collar lock and turning the camera. The flash bracket places the flash approximately 12" above the center of the telephoto lens, which extends the light higher and further for objects that are far away.

The bracket is machined from a solid billet brick of 6061-T6 aluminum, and the clamp's locking knob is made of stainless steel. Also, the graphics are laser-engraved directly onto the bracket. Furthermore, the aluminum has been black anodized, which makes the bracket resistant to abrasions and corrosion. Most hot shoes mount right on the top of the bracket, but an ADPT-SC29 adapter is required for the Nikon SC-29 flash cord.

Because the lens rotates on the lens collar, the straight bracket does not require movement
Works seamlessly with Jobu Design gimbal heads

    Jobu Design FB-TM2 reviews

    FB-TM2 Top-Mount Flash Bracket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, great price No complaints - simple design but it works perfectly and you can't beat the price (compared, say, to a ...... albeit this unit has no flash rotation ability).I attach it to the ...plate on my Nikon 500 VR: it attaches from the top of the ...foot at a cutout at the front of the foot that is just the right size as the width of this bracket, and still the gimbal head that I place the lens on can slide forward all the way to the front of this foot, as it can fit underneath where this bracket attaches without interference!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works superbly I purchased this bracket to compliment the nicely designed JoBu Design (JoBu) gimbal head for my longer lens when photographing wildlife. I needed to get the flash off the camera to eliminate the white-eye effect (red-eye equivalent for humans) for wildlife when using my flash with the flash extender (Better Beamer); it gives nice fill light and opens up shadow areas. It has the quick release mechanism that works with the JoBu double dovetailed lens plate; twist the knob to slip it on or off...no tools needed.. The bracket also works with Wimberly, Kirk, RRS and Surefoot double dovetailed lens plates, but at a fraction of a cost. I love it I also use it for photographing people...handheld, which is attributed to it's light weight. So far so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and light I like it becasue it is secure enough I can carry the camera, lens, flash etc by holding the flash bracket. It does a great job holding the speedlight. It would be good if the grip where I hold it was thicker which would make it easier to hold but then it would take more room in my camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another well mad Jobu product Simply does what it says it will, well! A well made simple device to avoid red or steel eye. Assembles easly and is sturdy. Watch that your Arco plates are double grouve type or it won't attach. Good news, most recent plates are of the double grouve type. (The double grouve refers to a duplication of the bottom grouve on the plate that is used to attach to your tripod. The second or double grouve is made upside down above the tripod one to accept the bracket, mounting to the top of the plate.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised Works as advertised. The only issue is that I needed to purchase longer double dove-tail plates to accommodate the increased length needed to attach the lens and flash bracket to tripod head.
