    Hello,
    I have a nikon d70 and the speedlight sb-800 and I was interested in
    getting a flash bracket. Does anyone have any suggestions? Where to
    go?
    Thanks,

    Matt

  2. Well it depends on how high you want to raise the flash, whether you want the
    flash to be centered over the lens in both portrait and landscape modes, how
    much you want to spend, etc. The usual names are:

    Stroboframe: http://www.saundersphoto.com/html/strobo.htm
    Newton: http://www.newtoncamerabrackets.com/newton.html
    Kirk: http://www.kirkphoto.com/

    Then there is the flash helmet:

    I myself am partial to the Stroboframe Pro-RL when I'm going to be shooting all
    day because it can put the flash up fairly high (18" or so), has a locking
    mechanism so the camera doesn't flip when I'm carrying it between shots, and
    can sit on the ground with camera and flash (though a large flash based softbox
    did make it unstable). For everyday use I use the Stroboframe Stroboflip which
    is small enough to keep on the camera at all times (my camera doesn't have a
    hot-shoe, so I need to have a bracket to attach a flash at all).
