I recently saw a guy at a bird sanctuary with a speedlight mounted to a holder that looked like a strap around the lens with a shoe on top. This particular lens was a 500mmF4, or maybe it was a 600mm. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just a Wimberley or RRS flash holder, but I could be mistaken. The guy and his camera disappeared before I could get to him.

I've just spent two hours searching forsuch a flash holderto no avail. I have the off-camera shoe cord. Does anyone have a flash holder like this...even seen one?

Thanks.

Well, I can say that I have the Wimberley off-camera bracket and like it a lot.
But I have never see one like you describe.

Sorry,

Eric

Thanks anyways, guys. I guess what I saw--or thought I saw, rather--was just a result of too many hours in the sun that day. I was hoping for a solution that wouldn't set me back another few hundred dollars, but I guess it doesn't exist.

Have a good one.

Bill
