Hello, I'm looking at the Wimberley F-2 Macro Bracket:
http://www.tripodhead.​com …racket-macro-brackets.cfm (external link)

My setup: Canon 5D with a RSS L-Plate; Canon 100mm lens;

Two questions:
1. How do people like this flash bracket for macro use? Can it also work for general photography?

2. If I attach the bracket to the camera body with the arca-swiss L plate, and use the lens hood, can the flash be positioned around the lens hood? Or would I need to mount the bracket to the lens (using a tripod collar and another RSS plate)?

For question #2, I don't want the hood casting a shadow from the flash.

Thanks!

Well, I went ahead and placed an order for the macro bracket. My plan is try use the bracket mounted on the camera's L plate.

That set up will work fine. Long story why, but I did use that set up with my 24-70. I was able to position the flash so there wasn't a shadow from the hood. There are better Wimberly modules to use for general flash photography. It was kind of hard to position the flash above the lens, but it did work.
