    There are many flash brackets on the market so what are some compact ones suited for :43:?

    Ill be using my OM-D with PL 45mm with a FL-300R

    I saw a picture someone posted here with a similar setup and it looked nice but I cant seem to find it.

    This is one I use, slightly customized (I replaced the cold shoe with a live hotshoe):

    I also have another I use a lot on :43: which has two shoes, one which I again replaced with a live hotshoe plus a spare coldshoe on the side. I can mount my LED video light in the second shoe as a focus-assist lamp when shooting still sin the dark (with the flash in the main shoe), or else I can mount an LED light array for continuous lighting in the main shoe for video, with a shotgun mic in the side shoe when shooting video. Very convenient, and also the most compact bracket I've had yet. Sorry I don't have any pictures.

    All of the brackets I use for Micro Four-Thirds are very cheap... like $10-$20 cheap. A far cry from the $150+ brackets that I used on my DSLRs. Small brackets are ideal for the system, and small brackets come cheap. Yay!

    Wow, that's not cheep at all. I can't imagine spending $100 for a simple bracket like that.

    You got the right idea Ned.

    I've used it on a few dozen paid shoots. As long as the ROI is there, I don't worry about the small costs such as this since they're write-offs.
