Taking pictures with flash requires light modifiers to shape the quality of light. Studio strobes have always been designed to attach light modifiers; speedlights on the other hand were designed to be used as is.
The Godox flash bracket changes this limitation of speedlights. It allows for combining speedlights with light modifiers. Figure 1-1 illustrates the concept. First, the speedlight is mounted into the Godox flash bracket and second the light modifier is attached to the bracket. There is a standard connector at the base of the bracket to attach it to the light stand.
Godox manufactures flash brackets for three different mounts of light modifiers:
- S type: Bowens,
- S-EC type: Elinchrom, and
- S-C type: Comet.
I recently switched from the Canon system to Godox and so far I am impressed. I like that have these options. It will certainly open the world of modifiers to us speedlight users.
