The Digital Pro-T and Digital Press-T are flash-rotating brackets. Both are light, compact and fast-handling. The flash arm swings to keep the flash centered over the lens for both horizontal and vertical compositions. These brackets do not require the use of cable release.Unlike conventional brackets, the Pro-T is designed for you to hold the camera rather than the bracket, providing a more natural way of shooting. It allows you to switch between horizontal and vertical compositions instantly.
 The Press-T is a slightly shorter and even more compact version of the Pro-T.It is popular with photojournalists and other shooters who work out of a camera bag.How Does It Work?
The top surface of the camera mount has a machined cross-sectional recess and is covered by dense textured rubber material. This ultra thin barrier, grips the bottom of your camera body and provides an extremely solid connection. When your camera is securely mounted, this design concentrates the maximum frictional force to the outside edges of the mount to prevent twisting.Key Features
 • No camera plates required
• NEW adjustable flash height knob
• More robust camera...

The Stroboframe Stroboflip VH-2000 is the  ultra-compact, "gripless", flash rotating bracket.  It cradles the camera unobtrusively while maintaining an over-the-lens flash position with a design that lets you hold the camera rather than a grip, and rotate the flash for horizontal or vertical composition.What's more, the stress and weight of the flash unit is transferred from the light-duty camera shoe to the rugged Stroboframe mount. The Stroboflip is made for shoe-type flash units.
