    I have one similar to this. Functions well, but is on the cheap side for sure.

    That looks like MacGuyver's Stroboframe.

    I dont have a bracket but I do love those hot shoe clamps. I bought 2 of them and although for what they are, they are expensive, the lock in a flash on my stands beautifully. highly reccomend

    No, i know that it casts a shadow, but using a better bounce card, or off camera flash fixes this without the need of that heavy ass frame. :rolleyes:

    better bounce might help soften the shadow, but its still side directional and the catchlights will be offputting.

    off camera is always the way to g,o when its possible.

    I like mine just fine though if I could have I would have built my own. I priced out the materials and I couldn't build it for the price I paid.

    I have a small machine shop at my house and usually save a lot of money by making stupid hunks of metal with holes in them, but this time I had to deal with weight and light metals get expensive very fast.

    i try off-camera as much as possible, but soft directional shadows suck in portrait mode
