Review of the Lastolite 2408 Flash bracket
Model: 2408 Flash bracket
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.
The 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.
Well made, good for vertical/horizontal shooting
No tilt functionality
This is a clever, well-made device thatʼs robust enough for professional use – as youʼd expect for £60.
