Flash Bracket
 
What will be the most popular one wedding photographer use for canon 1D series? I was doing some research online and see some strange design. Some say good and some say it doesn't stand still and too loose.

Im a quick release kind of shooter so my options are limited. RRS sells some nice gear along these lines. If you want something that folds up small then this is good but you will need an L bracket for it.

Another great choice is this one

Custom Brackets also makes a huge variety to choose from. Just watch out for the ones where the handle is on the right. A bit hard to hold up and operate the shutter when they are both on the same side.

That is one nice looking flash bracket. Just wish I could find a flash brachet like that with a trigger on it that fires the camera. Use to have one in my film days, you could adjust the lens focus with your right hand and snap the shot with your left. This way you never had to take your right hand off the lens and that saved time adjusting both focus and f stops.

I see what you mean...

One solution is to hook up a wired remote and tape it to the main handle of the bracket. It would enable you to trigger the shutter with your left hand and still operate the zoom with your right hand.

In my usage experience, it has not been an issue to adjust the zoom with my right hand and then reposition my hand to operate the shutter. Of course, now that you have raised this issue, I'm sure it is going to be a huge problem:D!

Just looked at the link, and found, further down the page, an accessory trigger-http://alzodigital.com/online_store/selection_flash_bracket_shutter_release.htm

Looks like fun, but I have more fun making up my own.

:oThanks both for the link and telling me to read all the instructions.:o That bracket system is as close to what I use to use and a lot more. Now all I have to do is wait for my birthday to get here in May. Well at least this year I can answer the question; what do you want for your birthday.:D
