I was about to ask how many of u using it and got any recommendations on where to buy, how much and which models.
Btw, the flash bracket can help in 2 things:
1. bring up the flash unit much higher above the lens so that can greatly reduce redeye
2. when shoot in landscape, use L bracket. Then quickly convert to C bracket (by folding out the extension) when shoot in portrait. This will give flexibility to where your flash will be pointing. If never use C bracket, there will be a left or right side shadow behind your subject.
the main purpose of using (flip or rotating) Flash Bracket during events is to keep the flash always above the camera lens even shooting in portrait orientation, so it will not cast a ugly shadow at the side of your subjects for vertical shots.
another reason is to bring the flash further away from the lens, so it will not cause redeye effect if the flash are too close to the lens axis.
if you not always shooting events with direct flash or with omnibounce, and not always shooting Caucasian (very easy to get redeye effect compare to Asian). You need not to have a flash bracket.
