The only problem that drives me nuts is the same one another reviewer, R. Shellhamer, has (although it seems to be less of an issue for him/her than it is for me). The damn thing puts the shutter release button on the wrong end of the camera when shooting vertically. It's a royal pain, but can be overcome by removing a few screws, reorienting the mounts, then mounting it backwards on the camera. Really, I don't give much of a rip if the Stroboframe logo faces outward.
At any rate, it's a nifty item that truly improves flash photography. For around $50.00, it's worth owning.
We are used to seeing lighting come from above the subject (sun, overhead lights), which is why camera-mounted flash shots look harsh and somewhat strange.The Stroboframe raises the flash above the camera by about a foot so that the light looks more natural. Combined with Lumiquest's Softbox or Softbox Mini, the light looks very natural and unlike a usual harsh flash shot. This setup is very kind to flesh tones. I wouldn't shoot without it.
I also carry a 2-light and umbrella tungsten setup, in case of poorly lit interior shots, but don't have to use it often.Read more ›
My only beef is that I have to rotate my camera the "wrong" way for a portrait oriented photo. This puts the shutter release at the bottom instead of the top. It works, but is slightly awkward for me. Not a biggie and it really does help the pictures due to the favorable position of the flash.
Vertical shooting: yes, with this product vertical shooting becomes fairly difficult to the point of effectively ruling it out. However, I shoot vertically about 4 times a year. That's not 4 sessions per year--4 frames. If you are someone who does a lot of vertical shooting then I would recommend steering clear of this item. For me, someone who rarely ever does shoot vertically, this does not bother me at all.
Camera and/or flash coming loose: I have not experienced this issue at all, not even a little bit, not one time. All I did was tighten the bottom screw down fairly tight. I didn't use a pair of pliers to tighten it or anything; just my hand. The camera stays in place perfectly all the time. This may be, however, because I have a Canon battery pack on the bottom of my camera which also has grip to it. I haven't tried mounting the camera directly to the bracket so I don't know if that would cause the slippage issue or not. Anyway, for me this is not an issue at all. Also, in all positions my flash has remained in place as well. My flash is attached to a remote cord so actually it is the remote cord which is screwed down technically speaking, but regardless everything has stayed in place in all positions. I have experienced no issues with anything coming loose. Now, I did just buy this and I have only used it a few times so I can't speak to long-term reliability in this area. If it fails down the road I will come back and revise this review, so if you are reading this then everything is still fine.Read more ›

Metal frame a little stiff when moving the flash arm...but it's new.....
Has gotten easier to adjust in a few uses.
Pretty good. It requires a tweaking at first to get things right, but so far, it has worked pretty well. I like it.Published 7 months ago by JoPho
