    Flash Bracket

    This flip flash bracket will center the flash over your lens. Excellent condition. Very well made, but I can't find a brand name or model number. So here's my description:

    - all metal (anodized aluminum), except for plastic (or nylon) pistol grip
    - base supports 35mm or medium format camera
    - pistol grip, can convert from right-handed to left handed
    - metal cold shoe with locking screw
    - adjustable flash arm swings (flips) for horizontal or vertical perspective

    Conceptually like the Stroboframe Quick Flip, though with a more substantial grip and more adjustments.

    $30 plus actual shipping. 5 day return privilege (less shipping). % to APUG.

    And if you recognize this and know the manufacturer, please let me know.USD
    Price : 30.00

    Do you feel it would work with my C330f?

    Possibly with a WLF, definitely with a prism. As currently configured, the flash holder is on the same vertical axis as the tripod screw. So the flash will interfere with viewing through a WLF. You can move the tripod screw back about 1/2" and the flashholder foward about 1/2" - but that still might not be enough.

    I'll PM you with an alternative.

    In the second pic, you could also put the shoe on the opposite side of the horizontal sectioin.

    True, I didn't think of that. You can also flip that arm vertically to achieve the same effect. What you loose is having the flash on the same vertical axis as the lens.
