Dave, in that 2nd shot using photoflex heavy duty adapter, how is the dual flash bracket attaching to the photoflex adapter? I am not DIY kind of guy so if this solution works I will look into it.
There isn't much DIY'ing involved. All you need to do this is an additional "L" arm from Jerry and a Manfrotto 014-14 adapter.
Here's an overall view of the DVM:
The Manfrotto adapter's 1/4-20 stud is inserted into the hole at the rear of the lower "L" arm and secured in place using a Stroboframe locking cold shoe. I used the cold shoe rather than a 1/4-20 nut because this way I have a convenient place to attach my PocketWizard Plus II.
Here's a closer view:
with a 5/8" receptor at the rear of the lower "L" arm there are many tilt options available. A common double-ended stud (http://www.adorama.com/LTPCSR.html
) will allow you to attach the Double Vertical Mount to any heavy-duty flash tilter such as the Photoflex shown in my previous post.
If your light stand has a long, Avenger-style stud on top, a better approach is to use an Avenger long double stud (http://www.adorama.com/AEE250.html
) or a length of 5/8" rod and an Avenger D200 grip head. This photo (pardon the snapshot quality) shows the DVM mounted on a length of 5/8" aluminum rod (from Home Depot) which is, in turn, inserted into a D200 grip head:
As I mentioned in my prior post, Jerry has a nice canned grip head-based solution that you might want to seriously consider.
