Every so often, over now nearly 40 years as a professional photographer, I've come across a product so good that, when combined with the standard bits of kit from the camera manufacturers, adds to the value and performance of those manufacturers products. Quantum batteries for your Speedlights for example, and the Wimberley head on top of anybody's tripod. And now this- the Boomerang Flash bracket. If you have to use on-camera flash regularly - just go buy one of these brackets. Like all great design, it's beautifully simple, elegant and so easy to use. Not only does it eliminate the problem of the off-side shadow throw (when using on-camera flash) in a portrait/vertical configuration, but because it gives just that much extra distance between the flash light path and the lens axis light path, it also eliminates 85% of the nasty bounce back hotspot when used in the landscape/horizontal position. A great, well made, well designed addition to any photographer's kit bag.
