Vello CB-200 overview

  • 1Description

The Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket from Vello is a quick, simple way to switch between vertical and horizontal view with your camera using a shoe mount flash, without missing a shot or changing the look of your light. The Speedy Bracket smoothly rotates your camera, easily switching between horizontal and vertical positions, while keeping your flash stationary and centered above the lens at all times. It will rotate any camera with a height of up to 5.75". It is designed so that you can use your camera's own grip to shoot photos. The Speedy Bracket's cushioned bracket arm can also double as a comfortable carrying handle.

The cold shoe can be positioned in multiple locations or removed altogether, to better accommodate Nikon SC-28 & SC-29 and other similar off-camera shoe cords.

    Vello CB-200 reviews

    Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 88.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised I have a Canon 60D and 70D and bought this in preparation for a class I'm giving in July. There isn't much to say except it works and works well. Read the instructions on tightening the tension as you may find it switches between vertical and horizontal view too easily; however, adjusting is very easy - 1-2 screws and you're done. However, the instructions say use a 3/8 socket and that is way too big.The bracket I bought also came with the cable. Make sure yours does as well.If you have an easy on/off tripod attachment on your camera, you'll need to remove that for this to work. Not a big deal but remember where you put the attachment. All-in-all, very pleased.Nicholas.Nicholas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for events or location shooting Good accessory for events or location shooting when using speedlight on camera (when no option for off-camera lighting stands, modifiers, etc.). Attached to Canon 7D Mk2 w/ battery grip; clears camera during rotation just barely (thumbscrew slightly scrapes the corner of camera). I replaced the thumbscrew holding the hot-shoe clamp with a button-head allen screw, this gave additional clearance. I don't anticipate moving the hot-shoe clamp often - it is an option - but will have to use a tool when I chose to. Nuts that tension unit's rotation from vertical to horizontal did need a little tightening probably due to weight of kit. Not a big deal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Any Vello products I've bought have been well made and fairly priced. The main reason for this purchase was to try to reduce shadows in some indoor situations. So far it seems to do the job pretty well. The tilt feature may not be very practical. Unless you tighten the various hinges the bracket wants to tilt away from the camera which makes things pretty well impossible. With the hinge nuts tightened it works fine with my D610+24-70 but it's heavy and it's difficult if not impossible to tilt the camera from landscape to portrait. It doesn't fold up so it takes up a bit of room in a bag. But it is more or less flat.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Speedy Camera Rotating Flash Bracket by Vello When I mount my Canon 5D MKII, 85mm f1.2 lens or my 70-200 f2.8 and 600EX-RT Speedlite on the bracket I was extremely disappointed and feared that my camera and lens would break or bend the bracket. The mechanism design for tilting the camera from horizontal to vertical may be adequate but only for a light weight point & shot camera & lens. If you tighten all the lock nuts down on the rotating mechanism it gives the unit more rigidity and security but then you cannot move the camera. I have returned the Vello Rotating Flash Bracket unit. I would not recommend this unit

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly what it's suppose to do This device works like a charm. It keeps the flash stationary above the camera so you don't get an ugly shadow when you take a picture vertically. Very easy and simple to use, you just screw your camera to the bottom plate with the provided fastener and you're good to go. I have a Nikon D700 and D90 and it work just fine with both, plenty of space. The screws were a little loose out of the box, which might be fine for some people, but I prefer them tight so the camera doesn't move by accident. You can easily adjust the screws with tools. Also, in case you don't already have them, you will need an off camera flash cord and flash.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It worker, but... Vello generally makes very good products at very good prices, but this flash bracket has a weakness. Your flash fits into a small shoe, which in turn slides into a small holder, both units then attaching to the top of the bracket via a small knurled screw. This screw, tightening by your fingers, is the problem. I used the unit in a cave and after 30 minutes or so the small screw came loose, disapprearing into the darkness, and my flash unit fell off the bracket, luckily into my hands (Vello's connecting cord helped the flash from hitting the ground). A larger screw with a better finger grip would greatly help ensuring the flash stays attached to the bracket.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit bigger camera / battery grip Reason I purchased: I cover events (charity dinners, banquets) for a local magazine. I have to use a flash and I have to work alone. With vertical shots, it's difficult to bounce or point the flash without getting bad shadows. I can't just shoot horizontal (with the flash above my camera). What I don't like: this really only fits a smaller DSLR. I use a battery grip on my camera (so I don't have to reach over my camera for vertical shots). This device doesn't work with the battery grip - the camera becomes too tall and won't rotate without hitting the handle on the left. The rotating platform is also too loose and can begin to rotate when I am holding the camera for horizontal shots. I can't afford a $200 custom bracket, but I can see how those are worth it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Close, but not quite right I bought this because I wanted the camera rotator. I took the flash bracket off and cannot talk about that part. This did not meet my expectations or my need. When at the horizontal and vertical stops the camera mounting plate is neither horizontal nor vertical. See the attached photo it pretty clearly shows that the tripod mounting plate at the bottom and the camera mounting plate above it are not parallel. It seems otherwise well made.
