I use this bracket with a B&H-ordered Westcott umbrella (Optical White Satin - 32") on a standard light stand for headshots at work from time to time. I use the bracket only occasionally, but it's been reliable so far. It holds my Nikon SB-700 Speedlight securely, and even has an upward-angled umbrella slot that brings the center of the umbrella up towards the center of the flash area. This makes for more even light distribution, because otherwise, your speedlight is firing largely into the top half of the umbrella. The construction is largely metal and the fit is solid all-around. My only critique is that the knobs are plastic and smaller - I'd like a little more surface area to grab hold of and torque down. For the price, it's a no-brainer.

you put in on a lightstand and you attach your speedite to it and there is a hole to fit an umbrella if you choose to use it.This unit has metal parts , and although a bit flimsy it is much better than the units that are made of plastic which cannot hold the weight of a simple speedlite and break instantaneously. NEVER put an expensive speedlite in a PLASTIC bracket.It is a recipe for disaster. Spend $ more and get the metal one.

I use this with my canon 430ex ii speedlight with umbrella. Works great and the adjustments allow complete control over any direction you might need to position your speedlight for proper lighting.

You need a bracket. This is a bracket. All the spinny things spin and it connects up well to my stand. What else can you say.

Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe:

Took me a while to get use to it - but now I can say it's a good bracket. The only complaint I have is the screw for the umbrella is a little short. With umbrella which have a small shaft, you cannot jam it in the slot. It design factor is small and compact, which is nice.

Well built, well-designed adapter

By George

Verified Buyer

Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe:

I needed an adapter for a light stand that would hold a speedlight and an umbrella, and this product fit the bill. Supplied with adapters, it will fit on almost any light stand or tripod. It would rate 5 stars if it provided a way to center the speedlight output on the umbrella if one is used. Unfortunately, due to where the speedlight fits onto the adapter relative to where the umbrella stalk goes, it aims the flash at the halfway point between the center of the umbrella and the edge. Still, it works as advertised.

Great product for shooting with a flash and an umbrella. I have a Nikon SB900 which I love and this works great with an umbrella for bouncing flash etc.

excellent bracket that allows umbrellas of all sizes to be mounted and tilt controlled. Provides a cold shoe for mounting a flash. If you have an umbrella you should have one of these.

Perfect for on-site portraits

By Larry

Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe:

This replaces an older and weaker bracket and it will last me a long time. I use it for on-location portraits, along with Canon strobes and Freewave Fusion wireless transmitters. Strong, well-designed, perfect.
