    Vello CB-300 reviews

    Quickshot Rotating Flash Bracket is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for wedding's-I hope! I bought this for a wedding that I have coming up. So far it seems to work good. The bolts needed a little snugging to keep it from rotating on it's own. And it does seem a little more flexible than I had imagined, but not worrisome. The rotating arm is reasonably height adjustable. Enough so that it works on my D7000 with grip and all my lenses. The bracket is easy to install, adjust and operate. The cold shoe raises the flash just a little more than it would be on the hot shoe helping to reduce red eye marginally. So far it seems promising for the upcoming wedding and I imagine that it will operate flawlessly in which case it will earn another star.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Build Being cost conscious about photography gear, I've been trying out quite a few different Vello products lately. And so far, I have yet to be disappointed. This bracket is just what I was looking for when running into the issue of having to use on camera flash and no where to bounce. In fact, I even find it useful even when bouncing in the portrait orientation. I'm right handed and like to shoot in the portrait orientation with my trigger finger on the top. Without the bracket, you have no other choice to bounce flash other than the left side. With the bracket, you now have the freedom again to bounce in any direction you need as if you were in the landscape orientation. I was a bit concerned with the clearance on the right side of the bracket mounted with the lens since the example photos showed a 50 1.4 just barely fitting. Not to worry though. I was able to mount it on a 5DIII and 7D with the battery grip using a 24-70L and 70-200L. It barely cleared it, but cleared it nevertheless. Great overall build and serves its purposes nicely.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No. Just no. I am not a fan. If you want/need the autofocus assist beam to come from the hot shoe and not the flash, this bracket will promise to be in the way. Not to mention, I literally could not figure out how to put the camera on. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's the truth. Also, the grip is on the wrong side to assist in rotating either the camera or the flash. You have to re-position your hand to grab the arm to rotate the flash. No. Just, no. Buy another. ANY other. And go to a store and test it in your hands before you do. There are nuances to this online can't cover. I finally went to a proper, in-person, camera store and walked away with a bracket I feel secure and confident in. I suggest you do the same. But if you do buy online, just don't buy this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash bracket The bracket is easy to use and sturdy. to make the bracket work smoothly, loosen the 4 nuts for the swivel bracket(8mm wrench). Put 1 drop of light weight oil (3 & 1 oil can) on both sides of the arms. Tighten one nut so the bracket moves smoothly, do all 4 nuts the same way. If the bracket seems to loose retighten each nut the same way you did before until the bracket has some tension on it. Don't make the adjustments with the bracket on the camera. The bracket works fine on all my lens's.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best concept for flash orientation I have four Canon digital SLR's and this bracket functions extremely well with each unit . Whether my 5d, 30d , or rebel xti . Make sure to follow the instructions for proper alignment and this bracket should serve you well . I've fine tuned mine and it's a snap to change orientation of the flash . This bracket supports my Canon 580EX II or 420EX safe and securely .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Favorite Bracket This bracket seems to be a clone of the Stroboframe Stroboflip bracket. There are two things I like about it. First, its shape lets it fit into a camera bag, whereas a lot of bigger ones don't. Second, it maintains its orientation when you flip it over. Imagine you're holding your camera horizontally (landscape orientation) and you're bouncing light off the ceiling. Now turn the camera to vertical (portrait orientation) and flip the flash over so that it's still above the lens. With a lot of brackets, the flash will now be pointing to the wall on your right, but this one will still be aimed at the ceiling. If you don't do bounce, this isn't a problem, but I like it this way. When I got the bracket, I found that the flash flipped over a bit too easily. With the camera at my side on a sling strap, it tended to flip over by itself. But there are four nuts that attach the swing arms and after tightening them down just a bit, I find the action is just right. Since I use Arca-type L-brackets on my cameras, I attached an Arca-type clamp to the bracket where the camera would normally go. And forward of that, there's a threaded hole to which I attached an Arca-type QR plate. So now the camera attaches to the bracket and the bracket goes onto a tripod very easily. I also put a small tilt head between the bracket and the flash shoe. This gives me a bit more flash height and lets me aim the flash downwards when using it for close-ups. Without it, the flash would tend to fire over the subject, not at it, and it would light up the background which I might prefer to keep dark to get the subject to stand out better. A small ball head would also work well for this. If you're a dedicated wedding shooter, you may be better off with something like the Custom Brackets camera rotating brackets. You'll get the flash higher above the lens and have a quicker flip-over process. But you'll pay many times more than this bracket costs. For my purposes, I think this is the best bracket around.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its great but do adjust it... This bracket to me is the best design (for there are many different designs). However the shoe on top is dangerous or your flash cable that runs from your flash to your camera. The cable shoe needs to be mounted on the bracket shoe and there is your weakest link. The flash is now mounted on two shoes! When turning your camera the flash might suddenly drop in position. It takes only three sudden drops for the cable-shoe to break. Safest is to screw the cable-shoe directly on this bracket and fix it there. Now it is secure for usage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, a little flimsy After adjusting the tension in the pivot system I was able to use the bracket well. It keeps the flash lined up perfectly. My only concern is that there is a little to much flex in the steel. But at the price it will certainly last long enough to be worth it.
