... when I read some of the initial reviews about poor quality and craftsmanship of this product
on January 4, 2016
I had concerns when I read some of the initial reviews about poor quality and craftsmanship of this product, but I figured the low cost was worth the try. I have to safe, I'm glad I took a chance! After receiving this flash bracket and umbrella holder, I'm not sure what product those bad reviews were talking about! This thing is quality built of good, strong, sturdy, molded plastic. The wing nuts to attach it to the tripod and adjust the angle are both solid and hold very well. The adjustable hotshoe slot to attach the flash was easy to tighten, and maintains a firm grip on my speedlite in all positions. The screws to tighten down the hotshoe and the umbrella are both made of quality metal, are large enough to get a good grip and tighten by hand, and have a screwdriver slot big enough that you can use a penny or dime to further tighten it down if necessary.
I haven't attached an umbrella to it yet (I don't get my umbrella until tomorrow), but I don't anticipate any problem with that feature either. I attached this unit to the top of my Cowboy Studios flash tripod. I mounted my Newer Speedlight II to the Cowboy Studios remote control units, and attached them to this flash bracket. All without any problems, no falling over/off, no problems!
I think this is a GREAT flash bracket for an amazing price!
