Top Customer Reviews
This latest bracket is for KAEZI's off camera flash bracket/umbrella holder.
When you look on the Internet, a lot of these cheaper brackets look the same and makes you wonder if they are all from China and they are all rebranded. Some mark them up so high and some keep them low.
With the KAEZI version, here is my thoughts:
I. LOOK AND FEEL - While these bracklets look the same on picture (makes you think everyone uses the same image), the good thing about the KAEZI bracket is that it's not plastic. I'm guessing it is made of anodized aluminum metal + ABS(Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). So, it's good to know that it's not tough plastic nor are the screws.
I. SPEEDLITE TEST
Attached a Speedlite and did a shake test....and the bracket was able to support the weight of a big YN-560 speedlite and the tranceiver as well.
Did a swivel up and down and noticed that this bracket makes the noise clicks when you swivel up and down. Most brackets I use are silent, this one makes the noise but it was not a big problem for me.
II. UMBRELLA TEST
Has the umbrella lock on the front to keep things nice and tight and the tightening screw as well. Held the umbrella quite fine during a recent photo shoot.
III. LIGHT STAND TEST
Has the lock for the light stand and once again, no problem attaching it. As always with brackets, try not to over-tighten them or you might accidentally strip them.
For a bracket under $20...let alone under $10, the KAEZI will work for many photographers on a budget. Would I attach an Alienbees to it, probably not...that's why you spend more for that assurance.
Especially for high end strobe, if you are spending several hundred on a high-end 580, then yeah...for that protection and that piece of mind, get yourself a Manfrotto bracket. But for the budget strobist, this bracket is perfectly fine for your needs. At under $5 (not inc. shipping), it does the job!
Now to the somewhat negative areas. The flash holder is not the easiest to tighten. It is a small gnarled adjustment screw that is difficult to tighten enough so the flash will hold securely, also the way the holder is machined, the locking mechanism of the flash (Nikon SB-600) will be of little use. The work around is to tighten with a pair of pliers until the flash is secure. I also added an elastic band to secure the flash in the event the screw loosens.
Next is the umbrella holder. There is a metal pressure tab which makes the umbrella shaft slide in under some amount of pressure. This is good since the screw adjustment to tighten the umbrella in place is screwed into the styrene with no metal insert and strips instead of tightening. For now the pressure tab seems to hold the umbrella in place, but I am sure it will lose strength over time. My work around is to add my own metal insert which should solve the problem.
My recommendation is, if you are handy and can do a little modifying it is still worth the price compared to the more expensive brackets. If however you are not the handy type I would go with a more expensive model like the Manfroto bracket.
