Professional photographers whose assignments require the constant use of a flash unit need a flash bracket that is equal to the task—long hours, quick shooting, unfamiliar environments, crowed rooms and impatient clients and subjects. To operate successfully under such conditions, pros, and the amateurs who want to shoot like them, need a precisely designed and manufactured flash bracket that is durable, versatile and reliable. The ProMediaGear Boomerang Flash Bracket is that product.
“I’ve used a few different flash brackets, some good, others were not worth talking about…there has only been one flash bracket that has stood out above the rest. That is the ProMediaGear Boomerang. If there was one word I could use to describe this flash bracket, then it would be ‘precision’. The craftsmanship and engineering of the Boomerang is very amazing. I can go from landscape to portrait orientation, quickly and effortlessly. Removing the bracket from my camera takes seconds by unscrewing a stationary wheel that screws into the mounting plate that is attached to the camera! ProMediaGear has raised the bar in flash brackets. I can imagine other companies trying to emulate what these guys have created…it’s that good!” Alex Schult, PhotographyTalk.com
The people at ProMediaGear knew that flash brackets must endure an enormous amount of use, and the resulting wear and tear. That’s why they approached the design of the Boomerang Flash Bracket as a precision instrument, and not some mass-produced piece of equipment. That starts with CNC, or computer numerical machining process, so each Boomerang is manufactured and assembled to match highly accurate design parameters. Then, aircraft-quality aluminum T6061 and titanium metal alloys are used. This makes the flash bracket is both lightweight (approximately 14 oz. [400g] depending on configuration) and exceedingly strong.
This is by far the very best flash bracket I have ever used! I have tried many—and returned them all, or else they are collecting dust in my closet. This one is ALWAYS on my camera! I am an event shooter and I needed a flash bracket that was lightweight and easy to use while running-n-gunning. This is the ONE! Plus, when I show up with this, people are thoroughly impressed. I love this bracket!

One of the unique features of the ProMediaGear Boomerang Flash Bracket is its 90-degree rotation of the flash around the lens, locking the flash in place, so it is always positioned above your camera. Shadows from the subjects are no longer a concern and the rotation is very smooth, with bearings of the highest standards. With this rotation system, you can move from portrait to landscape orientation quickly and easily, so you’re able to frame the best composition for every image.
Durability doesn’t mean much without equal attention to versatility for the hard-working pro photographer. The Boomerang Flash Bracket is compatible with most camera bodies from the major manufacturers: Canon, Nikon Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, etc. The bracket is also designed for use with many custom or universal camera plates, featuring Arca Swiss quick-release compatibility, and quick-release functionality from these plates. Just as much attention has been given to the construction of the body plate, which is built to eliminate any twisting, so the flash head points at your subject accurately.
ProMediaGear provides you with many options to configure your Boomerang Flash Bracket specifically for your camera. These include custom plates/clamp; a quick-release system; a left-sided arm orientation instead of the standard right-sided arm; a captive thumb screw instead of the standard Allen screw; a camera stand; and white, silver or gold instead of the standard black.
ProMediaGear is so confident in the build quality and reliability of its Boomerang Flash Bracket that each purchase includes a one-year warranty, a 30-day, money-back guarantee and free return shipping within the U.S.
“I've been using this sexy Boomerang Flash Bracket for a month now and just love it. It certainly complements the Canon Pro Bodies. It's made with such precision that it complements its smooth operation. The flash cord thumbscrew is a definite asset. Get the red. It's downright sexy!”
