What is the most versatile and well fitted L-bracket for the FZ little brothers? I'm specially concerned about vertical photos and the size of the camera, thanks!

yeah that's a good one but I don't like the idea of having four batteries for the bracket and then even more batteries for the flash. I actually saw the Vivitar DCR (I think) slave flash. I just wanted to know who has experienced using this kind of flash units with "cold brackets" Thanks though!

I use the Vivitar DF 200 with an L-bracket with the FZ-1. I strongly recommend this set-up. My L-bracket is a Quantary, cost $17(?), well constructed. I bought it because it's the only one my local Ritz carried. I don't go crazy "shopping around" for such low cost items. Don't stress the L-bracket too much. They're all pretty much the same. I wouldn't go too cheap though, 20 buck should buy you a good one. L-brackets are fairly generic, commodity items.
