Good pictures Neil. Wondering if you can help me on something different.
I have a Metz 76 MZ-5 and a Canon 5D mkII. I find the Metz braket system poor and I am looking for a compact, well designed, lightweight and more sturdy alternative. I have looked at RRS but they have stopped making their Metz adapter brackets and they look as though they don't accommodate any hammerhead flashes on their camera bracket systems. Custom brackets looks bulky and I have seen many reports that they weigh much more than the alternative manufacturers.
