One thing though, im sure some of the newer photographers wont know this, but when you take the bracket out of the packaging you need to swap the places of the gold parts that screw inside.
meaning- the gold piece that goes onto the stand, and the part on top with the cold shoe need to be reversed. the way it comes package- when you adjust the angle of the swivel by releasing the lever and moving it, the umbrella will not swivel with your flash- this is the wrong way. by simply switching the pieces around- it corrects it, that way when you adjust your flashes angle- the umbrella will move with it- which is thew hole point. Its nothing major but its something that needs to be done before mounting an umbrella.
other then that- the product is great, pretty sure I will not have problems with it
The weakness in the design is the plastic screw and fine, shallow threads for the umbrella holder (all other threads are metal). This screw could be over-tightened, stripping the threads in the swivel bracket. Be careful and you're okay--my umbrella hasn't exactly fallen out of the bracket yet! The overall build is acceptable. Considering the cost of most photographic equipment, at this price the build is exceptional. I wonder just how much better a more expensive bracket can be.
For Minolta/Sony users, the removable shoe mount covers up what we need, the 1/4" thread, so we can simply remove it and attach whatever we like; the stands that come with our flashes, or the Sony FACS1AM Off-Camera Shoe for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera Flashes.
I recommend this swivel bracket for anybody getting into off-camera lighting. For a sturdy kit with maximum versatility and minimum expense, I recommend pairing this bracket with the Adorama 40" White Interior Umbrella with Removeable Black Cover.
I ordered the exact same item a couple of weeks ago and guess what? The shoe don't fit. Not even close. I've been reduced to using the flat plastic table-mount thingy that came with the flash to attach it to the bracket. The little aluminum shoe is way too big to hold the flash securely.
Yes, I emailed adorama. No response. If you have any doubts about cheaping out and getting this item versus paying double to get a more ruggedly made one, my advice is: go with the more expensive option. This one has been hit or miss for me.
If you've got your own cold shoes, or don't need them, this is great.
Otherwise? Might want to go with a different swivel holder.
