I received my Delta Flip Flash Bracket yesterday and when mounting my 20D on it I found the thumb screw provided is too long. It tighten up about a quarter inch before holding the camera down into place. Has anyone else had this issue? I know I can add some washers to make it work but I am wondering if they didnt put the wrong thumb screw in the box. Thanks for any help.

i'm not familiar with delta brackets but it's likely that long to allow the use of an anti-twist plate. If you don't have one try a rubber washer.

Yeah, I just received mine last week with the same problem. I was about to shorten it when I remembered I had one from an old bracket.

The extra screw I had is the "captured" type (it won't fall out when you unscrew the camera). Someday when I get time (:rolleyes: ) I'll drill and tap a hole for the screw.

C'mon Delta, how hard would it be to have had that standard?

Anyway, that aside, I really like the bracket.
