my new diffusers get in the way if mounted on the ring mount that comes with the MT24EX but can be placed anywhere with these gorilla type arms.

Certainly very adaptable set up. As regards the diffusers themselves I haven't had the chance to try them on Ladybirds or ants yet which are the typical problem subjects.

how do those "arms" feel, do they seem really solid. Does it look like it could hold up a pair of 270 flash? Just curious.

Shouldn't be any creep with a 270ex just wobble about a bit when moving camera around. Maybe if tilted to extreme angles it wouldn't hold up.

Nice shots, Toby.

Is it a fotopro bracket? I had one before and the arms were a bit flimsy. Yours, however, seems like the newer/improved version. Let us know if a few months if the arms droop.

Threw the box away and no name on unit itself. I doubt there is more than one manufacturer so maybe it will fail later. At least the MT24EX heads are very light.
