BBX2 Boomerang Flash Bracket Overview
The ProMediaGear BBX2 Boomerang Flash Bracket is the updated version of the BBX flash bracket. It has the same quality as the older model. But with some improvements.
ProMediaGear designed the boomerang flash bracket to fit all types of cameras. It fits regular DSLRs and mirrorless cameras available in the market.
However, there is one problem that customers suggested improving on - ergonomics.
Hence, the company created the BBX2. It has better ergonomics without sacrificing quality.
The main difference between the original version and this one is the disconnecting knob. The first version has a protruding knob that is uncomfortable to some users.
With the new version, the knob is removed making it more comfortable to use.
In addition, the BBX2 Boomerang Flash Bracket is a universal bracket that fits any camera. It allows you to quickly position your flash above the lens in any shooting orientation.
Moreover, the smooth action and precision operation make it fun to use. Also, it has an adjustable height mechanism. This allows for fine-tuning of the flash arm location to fit various camera sizes.
The Boomerang places the flash away from the hot shoe. It allows unrestricted access for a wireless controller/transmitter.
Lastly, the flash plate is capable of mounting wired and wireless flashes or battery-powered flash heads. You may use either a flash sync cable or a trigger when shooting. It all depends on your style.
Why use a flash bracket for your camera?
Using a flash bracket positions the flash above the lens. It eliminates shadows and red-eye which greatly improves the lighting quality of your photographs.
With that in mind, post-processing images are also easier. There's no need to remove red-eyes and polish images individually on editing software.A flash bracket is also perfect for shooting fast-paced events such as weddings. You can easily change your composition without sacrificing lighting quality.

Not sure if I like it. I don't like the fact you have to remove the bottom assembly, which has two screws to remove to replace batts when shooting. I think the one for the Larger cameras, the BBGv2 is a better choice cause you are still able to access batts, and it folds down easier.
Thank you for writing a review and for sharing your feedback.
It appears that you're using our universal plate not the custom fitted one for your Sony camera. A custom designed plate would be the best option to mount a boomerang to a camera. With the PBX3 plate, you may also try to take out and move the position of the mounting screw to see if it will work to give you more room and allows you to access the battery door easily. Will you be using a battery grip for your camera? If so, we can exchange the original boomerang to the BBGV2 if you prefer its bottom assembly.

The BBX2 allows me to use a Profoto A2 on top of my Leica SL2, with Profoto I have TTL and HSS. This flash bracket is the best out there, period! I had an issue with the profoto connect pro, and the issue was that the signal was affected by attaching the A2 with metal parts. At first I used the plastic adapter that comes with the A2 and worked fine, I used the promediagear BLSA adapter. Then, I was experimenting with a ball head to quickly move the A2, for example, to bounce the light from a wall, doing it with the profoto A2's adapter is not easy and not practical; when attaching some metal parts to the A2, the profoto remote stopped working, I'm still doing experiments to fit a mini ball head so I can rotate the A2 in any direction as quickly as possible, but so far with the BLSA and the profoto A2 adapter, this flash bracket solve my flash photography with the Leica SL2.
Exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Easy to use and intuitive, although assembling the parts was tricky. A simple Google search for the video helped. Comes with a metal Cold Shoe Adapter, Allen key wrenches and Arca Swiss compatible bracket plate for Nikon D850. The flash bracket's finish is beautiful and mechanisms are fully functional. It's lightweight yet strong as my light stays up and properly positioned. I also like that you can fold it down to a compact size for storage/travel and the hidden magnetic compartment to store the included Allen key wrench is a plus. The lever on the locking arm is intuitive and works as expected in horizontal or vertical orientation. I recommend you get a plate specific to your camera for a perfect fit & to eliminate twisting. This flash bracket is ideal when shooting events and/or when using strobes & light stands aren't feasible. This rig will be my go-to bracket when using a Speedlight or LED video light. Recommended.
This is a must of you want to use flash properly and reduce glare , red eye or blown highlites. The build quality is exceptional and the design is genius. Not to mention the impeccable service PMG provides. Love these people. You cannot go wrong buying promediagear. Period
