Default Speedlight Bracket for 5700

Can someone recommend a bracket to use with my SB-50DX so I can take vertical shots and not have the flash on one side of the object?

The Stroboframe Quick Flip 350 may be suitable for you. Check here http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/DigiCam...-Flip-350.html

It does not matter because the mentioned bracket is [color=#FFAAAA"]not[/color] camera specific. It is designed for 35mm SLR cameras, and, as a result, can be used with the 5700. I used it with my 5700 a couple of times.

Thanks. This is the idea... just seems big and clunky... how did it work when you used it? Did you like the results?

Big and clunky? Yes! However, if you have a battery grip, the situation is not that bad. See the image below:


I have a number of brackets, and the above is the only setup that I used frequently. Because I also shoot film with SLR, this setup makes me more comfortable.
