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.

Figure 1-1) Mounting speedlights to light modifiers with the Godox flash bracket

Godox manufactures flash brackets for three different mounts of light modifiers:

  • S type: Bowens,
  • S-EC type: Elinchrom, and
  • S-C type: Comet.

  1. The Godox Speedlite brackets are part of a new breed of speedlite brackets, supporting the flash directly via the flash head. This reduces any stress on the flash foot, and any radio triggers attached, which in turn reduces the chance of damaging them or unreliable connections with the triggers.
