Custom Brackets CB FOLDING TA overview

  • 1Description

The CB Folding-TA Flash Rotating Bracket from Custom Brackets features an Arca Swiss style quick release clamp for camera attachment. An Arca-Swiss style camera plate is required (not included). Spring-loaded pivoting tension makes it easy to rotate the flash from horizontal to vertical position, and a flash anti-twist mechanism is included, as well. A foam grip affords comfort. In addition to the standard 1/4"-20 flash screw, the bracket has a 1/4"-20 tripod mount. By attaching an optional Arca Swiss style conversion plate, such as the CK-500 from Custom Brackets, to the underside of the CB Folding-TA, you can mount the bracket to a tripod that has an Arca Swiss style quick release.

Made of black anodized aluminum alloy for durability and light weight (13.4 oz), the bracket is 9.75 x 8.25 x 2.75" when in use, and folds flat to a 9.75 x 2.25 x 2.75" profile for easy storage. Pushing two buttons allows the bracket to be folded and stowed in almost any camera bag. The Folding-TA accepts virtually all cameras, including tall ones or those with add-on vertical grips and battery packs. It's also maintenance-free, requiring no lubrication.

    Custom Brackets CB FOLDING TA reviews

    CB Folding-TA Flash Rotating Bracket with Arca Swiss Quick Release Clamp is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fails to do the one thing it says it will do. I purchased this bracket specifically because the description said " The Folding-TA accepts virtually all cameras, including tall ones or those with add-on vertical grips and battery packs." When I mounted it on my D850 with the MB-D18 grip the upper arm hit my body at the hot shoe and rendered the bracket useless. Not only would it place the speedlight exactly where it would be if it was in the hot shoe it prevented me from using my remote trigger or my flash cable. Makes me wonder if the person who designed this had ever used a camera before or had only seen pictures of one. I didn't try this on my D5 but I don't think it is worth the trouble. The only reason I'm holding onto it is it fits my D500 if I don't use the grip so I will get some use out of it. If you have a point and shoot go for it, anything larger and there is no real advantage to using this bracket. First 2 star review I think I ever wrote.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy. Good for a nature photographer. This can be used as an over-lens flash bracket, with a quick horizontal-veritical change to keep the flash up and over. This can also be used as a modestly adjustable macro bracket if you put the flash on a small ball head. I haven't used this long enough to comment on durability, but it certainly seems to be well built. Folding it a great feature for a photographer like me, who carries everything in a backpack.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arca fit issue The bracket is well-made, lightweight, and the folding mechanism works easily. Nevertheless, the Arca plate i have with an Oben ballhead does not properly and securely fit on the bracket's Arca mount. The plate is too thick, or the grooves on the mount pate too low. I am returning the bracket for the equivalent bracket with the traditional screw mount and anti-twist plate.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs improvement The bracket works as intended. However I found the thing wobbly when using it with a Canon 600EXRT flash. Also the top bracket flips for portrait shots but does not lock into place. I found the flash will flip inadvertently when carrying the camera with the bracket and flash. I ended up buying the Wimberley F1 bracket after it flipped one too many times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & versitile Arca style mount is monitory for my system. Tripods to jibs to motion control to flash brackets. Fast & secure. Like all CB products - fantastic build quality and durability. Awesome as a veritable macro bracket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Very sturdy but not for huge flash units. But folds for very compact storage and is exceptionally well made overall.
