    This might have been asked before but I suck at the Search buttons...

    I need an affordable but decent bracket for my D300 plus SB600-900 speedlight

    in the $150 range :smile:

    Ah, yes..sorry. Mostly for my portraiture and wedding work, outside/inside.
     
  5. I had the Joe Demb flash bracket for a couple of years before I bought the RRS Wedding bracket, meets your budget and is very good.
     
  6. A tad late, but you might take a look at the Stroboframe flip flash brackets. Well-made, and will do the job. They sell an accessory anti-twist shoe for flashes, but I just use some velcro and a 1/4 X20 bolt, and nothing twists, ever.

    Thanks, yeah not too late yet since I'm broke. lol

    Not sure I should buy something when I'm not making any.

    But good to know in the future in case I get some biz.

    Same here, I just use a one inch square of felt fabric between bracket and flash shoe, nothing twists ever.

    Might check B&H and Adorama used department, sometimes they have these online. I paid $20 for a fine used Stroboframe flip bracket. If I used it all day every day, then one of the pricy ones would be more convenient, and would seem important. But the flip works fine, gets it done, and is more then plenty for me, I don't use it often.

    I use the Stroboframe Press-T bracket for my wedding work. D700 and SB800. It's perfect for me. I find them on Ebay regularly for about $40.
