Photoflex Adjustable ShoeMount 2 - Photoflex have announced the release of a redesigned version of their widely popular Adjustable ShoeMount Hardware, renamed Adjustable ShoeMount 2, for use with all brands of battery powered flash units.
The Adjustable ShoeMount 2 is a sturdy metal bracket that enables any flash with a standard shoe mount design to be used with 23 Photoflex soft boxes as well as many other brands. The new unit comes with a heavy duty reversible 5/8 inch brass stud with a screw on each end (3/8 in and ¼ inch -20) that expands the connectivity options of the bracket to many other types of connectors beyond common light stands.
Also included is a second shoe mount, which can accommodate a radio receiver or be used to hold a second flash unit either on the bracket or on a second light stand. Both shoe mounts are the new quick release design enabling them to remain attached to a light stand as the soft box is pulled away for easy transitions from soft to hard light.
New improvements, features and benefits:
New heavier steel construction to support heavy loads
Aluminum vertical and horizontal adjustment plates for increased loads
Improved quick release shoe mounts for more secure attachment of shoe flash units
New 3/8 inch mounting option allows use with the largest Photoflex Softboxes
New reversible 5/8 inch stud with multiple tightening options for a wide array of modifiers
New removable guide pin allows creative attachment options
