    Default Bracket for a SLR and 2 Flashes

    May I know has anyone tried shooting with such a bracket before?

    Do you have any comment or cost of this bracket?

    Many thanks.

    Actually, besides macrophotography, I'm thinking of shooting group portraits. I have noticed that when I mount a single flash on the hotshoe of the camera and I bounced the flash off the ceiling, there tend to be some light fall-off near the edge of the group.

    So I figure I use 2 flashes. But then I may be wrong. What are your opinions?

    Have you experience that?

    why not use slave flash?

    I did see someone using two flash with a camera shooting fashion shows... probably more for boosting the power than reducing light fall off.

    Stroboframe has a bracket where you mount the camera in the centre and the 2 flashes on the left & right hand side of the camera. The flashes are connected to the camera by the flash sync cord. The whole bracket will then be mounted on the tripod.

    I'm just wondering has anyone used such a bracket before.

    Sometime ago, I was at a wedding dinner where the photographer was shooting with two flashes on a bracket, one to bounce off the ceiling and another as a separate fill flash. Not sure how he mounted the two, but the main (bounce flash) is a big "hammerhead" (looks like a Metz) and the smaller flash is in between.
