I have the Arcatech one that fits into the camera hotshoe but any of the ones listed above (for the hotshoe) should work fine.

Got the generic Adorama one this week. Ordered on Amazon.com and delivered in 3-4 days by USPS. It works fine.

which is better, the arcatech or the manfrotto. they look identical to me but the manfrotto is $10 more.


I tried to write my signature, but my pen ran out and I put a big scratch on my monitor

look on ebay. I got one exactly the same as the arcatech and then manfrotto for about 10 bucks shipped. I like mine alot because it also protects the hotshoe!

I got mine from hvstar.net when I ordered my filters. I believe it was around $3, and looks identical to the ones on B&H

As far as the hotshoe level goes, get the least expensive. I spent the money for the Manfrotto, but a less expensive one will also do the job.
