Lastolite 2408 Flash bracket
Review Date :
Versatile flash bracket that can flip from landscape to portrait orientation
|Pros:||Well made, good for vertical/horizontal shooting|
|Cons:||No tilt functionality|
Using a ﬂash gun off-camera is gerenally better than putting it on
the hotshoe, especially if you can ﬁnd a versatile bracket that offers
some height extension. This new Lastolite model offers that and more.
Its crowning glory is the ability to ﬂip the camera from landscape to
portrait format without moving the ﬂash position, which it achieves via
a vertical rail on which the base plate slides up and down.
quick-release plate that ﬁxes to the camera can slide along the base
plate for horizontal positioning, and there are two levels of vertical
extension from the grip. The ﬂash-shoe on the top can also be replaced
with a spigot attachment if preferred.
VerdictThis is a clever, well-made device thatʼs robust enough for professional use - as youʼd expect for £60.
