The Versi Standard Speed Ring by Chimera has everything you'll need to expand the capabilities of your on-camera flash. The basic speed ring accepts any 4-pole Chimera softbox. The included Versi Bracket allows 4.5-7.5" flashes to be centered in the ring while mounted to the included sliding shoe. The knurled knob that locks the shoe has a 1/4"-20 tap to accept a threaded light stand, stud, or stand swivel.

  • Versi Bracket

    The Versi Bracket by Chimera is a great solution for mounting your shoe type flash onto polycarbonate 4-pole or metal Octa 8-pole speed rings. The bracket is a real enhancement to previous shoe mount adapters. Front height adjustment has been added as well as a base offset that accommodates the PocketWizard Flex TT5 radio receiver as well as other models and brands. The package includes the base offset, threaded thumb screws and mounts for polycarbonate and Octa speed rings.

    Multiple mounting holes on the bracket base allow positioning of your flash at the correct distance from the speed ring.
    The bracket off set allows the use of PocketWizard's Flex TT5 while centering the flash.
    The thumb screw has a threaded bottom hole to accept 1/4"-20 optional stand adapter studs for placing on a light stand.
    You can use the #2688 Slave Adapter (optional) to mount other radio receivers besides the Flex TT5.

Versi Standard Speed Ring is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not optimal for C-stand I'm using the speedring with Chimera's #3860 and a c stand as a hairlight. The speedring probably works well on a lightstand, in which there is no rotational force on the thumbscrew-spigot connection. However on a C stand-hairlight arrangement, the axis of the thumbscrew-spigot is HORIZONTAL; the weight of the softbox/speedlight/pocketwizard now applies a ROTATIONAL force, and the thumbscrew and spigot will inevitably loosen, and the hairlight will not hold its position precisely where you would like. The recommendation has been to screw it down real tight, but as anyone who has worked with male spigots knows, screwing it down real tight is not the answer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool People have complained about this being plastic but it is incredibly sturdy. There is a little wobble in the mount and it does slip a little when you are pulling on the speedlight but I would gladly buy more of these. In fact I own the octa version too. These are tools made to last.
