Default shoe mount flash umbrella holder question...

Larson, the Reflectasol Umbrella people, used to make a J-shaped flash
holder with a umbrella/stand mount.


"zeitgeist" wrote in message

I have a Sunpak 383 shoe mount and a 24 in. silver umbrella. I have a

holder for this combo which attaches to the light stand, but the output

the flash is directed 1/2 to 2/3 the way away from the center of the
umbrella because the flash is held on vertically. Is there a holder

which could hold the shoe mount flash so the light is directed to the

of the umbrella?

duct tape the flash to the shaft,

does your flash swivel all the way around so the sensor points towards teh
if not you will have to use only manual power, no auto exposure unless you
can ttl through your camera system.

see if you can just bend the umbrella shaft so its more in the center. or
bend the piece where the mount fits. I did that to a mount that had a
quarter 20 screw mount (that's the tripod screw thread) that was long
enough, just whacked it and it bent enough to allow the flash to aim more
towards the center without smashing the threads.

I'd just buy a bigger brollie
