    Can anyone tell me the advantages to purchasing a more expensive flash bracket ($200) versus buying a general "L" bracket ($50) to use with my Dedicated TTL Flash?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Some models allow you to rotate the camera while keeping the flash above the camera. This is very useful if you switch from portrait to landscape orientation on the go. (say, at a wedding).

    Some models are bigger and can handle a bigger camera. Some are made tougher than others.

    Just like anything else...you get what you pay for. You may not need the expensive one...but somebody does.

    the strobo frame "L" flash bracket is inexpensive and gives you the ability to rotate the flash for vertical shots keeping the flash above the camera.

    It works great
