    Using a G6 and Metz 52, I'm looking for a bracket that provides more support than just a shoe mount. Something like the Olympus FL-BK04 ,but a little more compact and for a lot less money. :)

    607523.

    My original idea was to get a straight bracket that had some sort of vertical support, mount the flash by the shoe and then velcro it to the vertical element so that there isn't so much stress on shoe during rough handling.

    Maybe something like the Custom Brackets Digital S, with the flash upside down - but it is bigger than I need

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks to B&H for the images.

    Why not get the Olympus FL-BK01 Flash Bracket?

    It's smaller than the FL-BK04 and cheaper.

    I have it and used it extensively with my E-PL2. I should take it out with my E-P5 :smile:
