    Flash & umbrella brackets

    Just after some recommendations for flash/umbrella brackets. I have bought a 43inch umbrella and will be using it with Nikon SB800/600 speedlights. Seems to be a large variety of products out there so would appreciate any feedback.

    Cheers

    Leigh, site advertiser Servaas Products sells one that does the job well.

    Good to know, Andrew. I'm also looking at these as well as an umbrella and stand. The Servaas stuff seems VERY reasonably priced.

    These are metal ones which I find better for outside, but I have the plastic ones for inside and they are fine.
    Cheers, Lani.

    Thanks guys. Lani I read on Strobist that they warned about using the flash with a metal hot shoe bracket and to cover it with tape before mounting the flash? Supposedly causes electrical issues. You haven't had any problems I assume?

    Cheers

    No on the one I have, the hotshoe part is plastic, it is the rest of the bracket that is metal.
