    Does anyone use this? Does it fold in half so it'll fit in a camera bag? What are your thoughts on this flash bracket?
    Thanx
     
  2. Demb makes quite a few products , can you specify the exact one or provide a link ?

    I use one of his brackets and really like it. Easy and quick to change orientation. Only problem I've noticed is sometimes the bolt it pivots on becomes a little loose, I keep a wrench in my bag to tighten it. It's lightweight and folds up to a convenient size for storage.
     
  5. I use it and it works fine. The nut refered to is a nylon stop nut which I adjusted once and works great. Mr. Demb will also answer any questions on his product in a timely manner as opposed to other companies.

    Great thanx. I was really looking for something that I could fold and stick in the bag. I have a CB Jr, and I never take it with me. I'm gonna give the Demb a try, and sell the CB Jr.

    I have an older model bracket and love it. The ony thing I can't seem to do is use it on a tripod. Gotta rig up some atttachment to go between the bracket and QR plate. Haven't really played with it much to figure out where I'm going wrong.

    I have one, but have not used it much, since I just recently got it. It seems to be made fairly well. It will probably fit in a bag (depending on the size of your bag), but it does not "fold up". The main thing I like about it, is that it keeps the flash properly oriented when shooting either horizontally or vertically. In other words, the flash is is always sitting "upright", and is not tilted 90 degrees on it's side when shooting vertically. I feel this gives you more flexibility when it comes to bouncing the flash. One drawback, is that the bracket does not raise the flash much higher than the actual hot shoe, when shooting in the horizontal mode. This is especially true for a "tall" camera like the D2X or D3. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product.

    I have 2 of one DEMB model, one for each SB-800, and 3 of another DEMB model, one for each SB-400. The SB-800 bracket is a little hard to store, as it is a large, flat surface. As a result, I leave it at home most of the time. It functions very well; only complaint is the storage. It has a hinge, but does not begin to fold flat. The SB-400 DEMB bracket folds flat and remains on the SB-400 flash. t is fantastic!

    DEMB introduced a newer bracket for the SB-800 after I bought mine. It articulates right to left as well as hinges. You might want to compare the two before you order either.

    Excellent customer service; great company. Very fast answers to questions. Enjoy!

    I am talking about the DEMB Flip It. Sorry for any confusion I caused. I use the RRS Perfect Portrait Flash Bracket.
