Constructed from lightweight, machined aluminum alloy, the 16" Multi Boom Flash Bracket from Phottix is a convenient way to use 1 or 2 shoe mount flashes with a standard bounce or translucent "shoot through" umbrella, as well as with softboxes with umbrella-type setup and breakdown. The Multi Boom Bracket consists of a base plate with two knurled knobs attached to flash shoes, a 16" riser-like boom section and a removable padded grip section.
The bracket is designed to make it easy, no matter what the size your flash or flashes, to center the light source in the umbrella or softbox for even distribution. The knobs that connect to the flash shoes on the base are captive to prevent loss but positionable anywhere along the bar. The shoes are removable and can be replaced with shoe-type radio transmitters if desired. The entire assembly is stable enough to sit flat on a table or the floor when needed. The 16" "pole" part of the bracket is tapped in several places along its length to center the base-mounted flash units or to establish a lower center of gravity for stability. A removable padded handle allows an assistant to hand-hold the bracket and a light modifier as is often done at weddings. The handle has an eye bolt to attach a counterweight or battery when using the unit as a boom. The entire system folds flat and stores in an included case.
Mount 1 or 2 flashes with or without hot shoe radio transmitters. Plate is centered inside umbrella-style softboxes or an umbrella such as the Phottix Easy-Up Umbrella

Mount the base plate in choice of multiple pre-tapped positions on handle for different flash setups or lower center of gravity
