    Flash bracket.

    Is there such a thing as a "universal bracket"? Something I could use on both Nikon & Pentax slr's.

    You would of course need an adapter for the electrical connection from the flash gun to the camera.

    please clarify - I use a metz 60 , and an old braun 'potato masher ' flash on camera. Both have a plate that will attache to any camera. Shorter plates were made for meduim format cameras.


    Do you mean brackets that allow you to rotate the body, and the flash stays directly above the lens regardless of H or V 35mm body orientation?
    my real name, imagine that.

    I use one of these on my Canon and it works fine.

    Various frames that will work with a shoe mount flash and flip the flash for horizontal and vertical image. Screws into tripod socket. Many/most adjust to allow flash to be directly above the lens regardless of camera dimensions.

    Good morning, Mike;

    Look also at Custom Brackets. Their rotating camera bracket is very nice. Mine are used with both my film cameras and also my digital cameras.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Agree on Custom Brackets. The quality of the machining and rotating mechanism (roller bearings) is high, and the bracket is designed to sit on a flat surface when not in use, unlike many others that tend to fall over.

    If you're trying not to spend all the $$$ you've got try Porters for a simple "L" bracket with accessory shoe on the handle. They used to be in the $10 range, at today's prices I've no idea.
    Take a look at the auction site for giggles.

    Do they have a website? If the brackets are that good, I might want to have a look.

    Newton Brackets are great. Use one with my Bronica 645 and 45/60 CT Metz flash. Sold by BH Photo
