Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between SS2 Port option and QD Port Option?
We offer two types of plate port options. The plate port is the small ring on our plate where a strap mechanism connects.
A plate that has an SS2 Port will only work with OUR ProMediaGear Strap Mechanism (SS2P1/SS2P2)
The QD port will work with OTHER BRAND straps.
How exactly does the Boomerang flash bracket work?
The Boomerang flash bracket attaches to the camera body via a universal or a custom plate. By releasing the lever the bracket rotates 90 degrees around the lens. We recommend watching the video on our homepage that will help you get a better understanding of the flash bracket and many of its features. We have two different models of flash brackets BS models are for cameras that do not have grips/battery packs and BG models are for cameras that have grips/battery packs.
Does the flash bracket come with a plate?
Yes the flash bracket includes a plate. You will need to select your camera make and model from the drop down menu. If your camera is not listed, please select the universal plate
I am confused about all the different options I can choose from when customizing the flash bracket, what should I do?
Please click on the “?” on the right side of the options menu. A new window will open describing the options.
What is the difference between the BOOMERANG flash bracket and the GUILLOTINE flash bracket?
The Boomerang flash bracket rotates the flash around the lens. The Guillotine flash bracket not only rotates the flash around the lens but ALSO allows for a separate rotation of the flash. For example, when taking a picture with the Boomerang flash bracket in a horizontal position, the flash remains in the horizontal position. When taking a picture with a Guillotine flash bracket in a horizontal position the flash can be orientated to a vertical position.
Is the flash bracket compatible with a tripod?
What is the difference between the BBX Boomerang Flash Bracket and the BBGV2 Boomerang Flash Bracket?
The BBGV2 Boomerang Flash bracket is specifically designed for taller camera bodies such as the Canon 1DX or cameras that have battery packs. The BBX Boomerang Flash bracket is designed for shorter AND taller camera bodies so it is more universal. What makes the BBX universal is its height adjustment. Flash arm's position can be adjusted to suit shorter or taller camera bodies.
Sometimes I use a grip/battery pack with my camera and sometimes I do not, which flash bracket should I choose?
If you only sometimes use battery pack please select the BBX Boomerang Flash Bracket. The BBX Boomerang Flash Bracket features a height adjustment which allows the flash arm to be raised or lowered to suit tall and short camera bodies.
Can ProMediaGear flash brackets work with Profoto B2 Heads?
Yes, you will need to purchase our B2 Adapter. It can be found under the category: flash brackets> accessories.
I want to purchase a flash bracket but my camera make/model is not listed in the drop down menu what do I do?
If your camera is not listed we do not make a custom plate for it, please select the UNIVERSAL plate from the drop down menu.
I currently use a RRS L-Bracket, will it be compatible with the ProMediaGear flash bracket?
Yes,you will need to select the CB60 Bracket Clamp from the drop down. The bracket clamp will “clamp on to” the L-Bracket.
What is the CB60 Bracket Clamp and how can it be used with the flash bracket?
The CB60 bracket clamp first needs to be attached a ProMediaGear flash bracket. After it is attached, the clamp will “grab onto” any Arca-Swiss Type L bracket or plate. (Kirk, RRS, Markins etc.)
What is the L-Bracket used for?
L-Brackets are to be used with tripods. They allow a photographer to quickly RELEASE, TURN, AND REMOUNT the camera for either a horizontal or vertical shot.
Are ProMediaGear L-Brackets two piece or one piece design?
Our L-Brackets are a two piece design. This means if you do not want to use the vertical piece you can simply remove it and use just the base plate.
I cannot find an L-Bracket for my camera on your website, help.
If you cannot find an l-bracket for your camera on our website then we do not have one. Although we do have UNIVERSAL L-Brackets that work with many different camera make/models.
I already own a ProMediaGear BRACKET PLATE; can I just purchase the vertical piece of the L-Bracket?
Yes, if you already own a ProMediaGear bracket plate please first verify that the plate has ports on its sides to accept the l-bracket prongs. If the plate does have ports then you will only need to purchase the vertical piece.
What are the safety stops used for?
Safety stops prevent the camera from falling out of the clamp when the clamp is accidentally loosened. All ProMediaGear plates and l-brackets have removable safety stops.
