The FA-330L Adjustable Locking Triple Flash Adapter with Umbrella Socket by Impact allows you to triple your on-camera flash power when using an umbrella. You can fire the flashes at full power for greater light output or, for faster recycle times, fire them at half power to conserve the energy. The adapter features 3 insulated, locking flash shoes with knurled, screw-down locking pins for secure mounting. The central umbrella socket is compatible with all Impact umbrellas and with most other brands. This allows it to be used combined with an umbrella, light panel, or other lighting accessories. The Triple Flash Adapter has a brass 1/4"-20 female thread for mounting on light stands having a 1/4"-20 male threaded top stud or adapter.

Use up to three shoe mount flashes from single mounting point

    Impact FA-330L reviews

    FA-330L Adjustable Locking Triple Flash Adapter with Umbrella Socket is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Platic base does not support the weight When I need to shoot three flashes on a light stand, I often need to diffuse the light. Putting on anything other than a tiny umbrella will rip the brass spigot right out of the plastic base. Luckily for me, I saw the umbrella start to fall so I caught the rig in time otherwise, I'd have three Canon 600EX crash to the ground. This is barely strong enough to hold three flashes and is definitely not strong enough to hold three flashes AND a diffuser of any decent size. The plastic is simply too soft and just gives way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive 3 speedlite bracket A brutally simple device, priced about a few 6 packs of beer or 1 large delivery pizza and tip. well finished, feels like a dense piece of black plastic. the speedlite cold shoes are screwed in and secured by a large knurled wheel to lock the angles of the shoes relative to the bracket, Not entirely foolproof unless you tighten it to death, but the shoes can be tighten to the bracket and the locking wheel jams up against the shoe. The bracket can be heavy with 3 speedlites attached. great for shooting into a 7 foot umbrella. I suggest using radio flash triggers to fire the speedlites or invest in those newer radio controlled ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Useful This one is very well designed and built, except for problem. The shoe tighteners incorporate a spring-loaded arrangement which is easily backed out too far, causing the springs to boing out into the universe. I was lucky that when my unit arrived, this had already happened in the box during shipment. I was able to find the little springs in the box and be forewarned. Worst case: you can easily replace those 3 shoes for cheap. They just screw on like all the other pieces you have lying around. That aside, it will do the job for the next hundred years or until it gets lost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very sturdy solution to slow recycling This little gadget is very solid and well made and allows me to use three SB-800s on location into a 42 umbrella. For years I've been using a funky French adaptor that I had to drill a hole through to insert the umbrella and I am happy to toss it. This is exactly what I needed to shorten recycle times with my three speedlights at 1/2 or even 1/4 power. A great problem solver at a great price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job! The triple flash adapter does the job. I'm very happy with it. When I use it with a very large umbrella, the centralized shaft connection allows me to use it as a counterweight. I'll explain. I mount the umbrella to a separate umbrella bracket and connect the flashes and adapter on the umbrella shaft on the opposite side as the actual umbrella. I position it all so that it has equilibrium. It puts less stress on the umbrella shaft as well as the angle rachet (of course, it will work the more standard way with smaller modifiers). What could be improved? tightening screws could be thumbscrews that are easier to grab and tighten. Be darn sure your flashes are clamped down tight before you use it. That being said, I'm using it all the time now. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, just what I was looking for. This is a well thought our device. It covers all your needs. I am a professional portrait and wedding photographer. They are well built, durable, and I really like the locking mechanism. They are small and compact enough to fit in my bags and cases. Now you don't have to use velcro for you pocket wizards. The price is fair and I have no problem paying that if the product is worth it. This is my new best friend. I have three, one for each of my camera bags and one for my studio. So I'm never without one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang for the Buck! After considering products costing 20 x as much I purchused this unit to see if it would do the job. And how! This thing is solid and I am able to securly mount 3 600EX-RTs for varied umbrella needs. Great product, Great Price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome unit This is great to hold multiple flashes on your tripod. Just note that the photos show the mount but it doesn't come with the unit.
