Has anyone used they're flash bracket at a concert? This thing doesn't even fit in my side back i just got, so i'm not sure i want to bring it in. That and I haven't used it yet, so i'm not too sure i want to try something so new either.

Any thoughts?

Sorry, never done concerts before....when I see my cousin in a couple weeks I'll try to get her onto the site...she does photography for a lot of bands and is working in the field in vegas right now.

Hope someone here can help ya out!

I don't think that anyone brings their bracket attached to their camera. I also don't think I've ever had a bracket that fit in a camera bag. I generally bring it in my hand and attach it when I'm ready to shoot. The thing it will do for you is help avoid redeye problems if you are a good distance from the subject and using a longer focal length.

just found out most concert photographers dont use flash at concerts -- they invest in faster glass.

soooo 50mm f1.8 it is! hahaha
