why would get that one as oposed to http://reallyrightstuf​f.com …desc.asp?ic=WPF​-1&eq=&Tp= (external link) ? i assume both have their own uses but what are they?

I chose the WPF1 because of its lightweight and compact design for day long hand-carrying sessions. IMHO this other bracket looks better suited for macro and studio conditions but I could be wrong because I've never used it myself. Regardless, the RRS brackets are solid and quality built tools and its hard to imagine going wrong either way. Congrads to sacral on an excellent buy.

Oh. To the OP or whoever else can answer it.....

Is there a place to mount a CP-E4 battery pack if I were to use the 580EXII on the flash mount? How about cybersyncs, if I used Paramount Cord's flash hotshoe with hotshoe cutout?

Haha! But yeah...unlikely. I wonder how much their manufacturing costs are, since these are all custom made (for the most part). At least the plates.

Man i love this thing. Will be using it for the first time officially this saturday at a big event! WOO!

How did it work out for you - Any feedback on how it works in the field?

I actually had a GREAT time using it. Very easy to use, and the best part is its low profile. I tried that Custom Brackets, but it was just HUGE. The RRS was much better suited for MY needs. Very easy to switch from landscape to portrait. Everything was rock solid, no issues with any loose parts.

I have had mine for about a year. I love it, and it is rarely off the camera. With the 70-200 lens & 100-400 lens, I pick it up by the bracket. It is solid. Sliding from landscape to portrait is fast, smooth and effortless, even with my 580EXII attached. I carry a small allen wrench in my photo vest just to check on the tightness, but have yet to have it loosen.
Quality is simply superb. It actually makes the camera easier to carry. One of the best investment I have made but..... not inexpensive!!!

Thanks- between the feedback in this thread and Ben's detailed review ( https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=544273 ) I think I am sold on this one...

Does anyone NOT like this bracket?

Pretty hard NOT to, until something better gets designed it really is the only/best option out there IMO.

This looks like a perfect solution for my needs. It says it works with a 5D with or without grip, does anyone know if that holds true for the 5DII?

I think it depends on the bracket you decide to get. AFAIK, the brackets that RRS makes are custom fitted. They do NOT have any corking/padding on them, and they are THAT snug, which is a GREAT thing.

Haven't checked the site since i bought my L-bracket + B87 portrait package, but i'm sure that if they haven't yet, they'll soon make a bracket for the 5DmkII
