Hampstead, MD—As the exclusive distributor for Phottix products in the United States, OmegaBrandess launched the Phottix Umbrella Swivel US-A3—an affordable umbrella swivel for off-camera flash.
The US-A3 is made from a durable aluminum alloy and fireproof PA66 plastic. The ball head is designed to be easy to adjust for fast on-scene lighting changes. And with an 8mm locking umbrella-mounting hole, the US-A3 will accept most standard-size umbrellas. Included are a locking ring and a metal cold shoe for mounting flashes.
The device’s 3/8-inch threaded female lug (with 1/4-inch threaded insert) mounts onto many light stands. The 1/4-inch cold shoe adapter is included to mount the US-A3 to a hot or cold shoe accessory, allowing the mounting of small monitors or other accessories to the flash shoe of a DSLR as well, where it is important to be able to position the item at different angles.
The Phottix Umbrella Swivel US-A3 retails for $24.99. omegabrandess.com
