    What are you trying to do Lucki? Both of these are used on a light stand and allow you to attach an umbrella. Not sure I've heard them called a shoe mount multiclamp

    Then that is what you need. I have a couple of lightweight 10' stands with "multiclamps" and umbrellas, and they are very handy. You can remove the umbrellas, shorten them all the way down, and use them as background/hair lights as well.

    TC, that's a pretty decent deal for two full stand set-ups. According to my zip code, with shipping, would be $110.


    The nice thing about these is that you can fold up the stand and umbrella, loosen the swivel on the head, and fold the umbrella down against the stand into one nice compact unit. I can fit two of these into a tripod bag and keep them tucked away in the back of the truck, well out of the way.

    awesome, thanks! I have been trying to get over to strobist and check it out. I skimmed it a few days ago, but really need to study it :D I am also getting the vivitar 285hv...can;t wait to figure everything out! Right now I am only planning on getting 1 of everything (umbrella, stand, flash, trigger), do you think I NEED at least 2?

    I would plan on getting at least two eventually. If you plan on doing some light portraiture, then you will want to balance out. Direct flash is pretty good, but once you start "modifying" it (umbrellas, soft boxes, etc), you lose a lot of the potency. So, you could use a reflector to bounce some fill onto the darker side of a face...but you are now modifying the light twice, which becomes far less effective.
