You might check out the Stroboframe Press T - or the Camera Flip model - The camera flip model might be a tight fit with the bigger battery pack attached. I use it on a D1 & the camera can rotate - but it just barely fits when shooting vertical photos.

The Stroboframe QuickFlip is the one I use with Fuji S2. I have used it with a D60 with the BG-ED3 as well.

thanks...I have looked at this one, but wasn't sure how well it worked with the bg-ed3. I think it is the one to go with now

Clint,
I like the Stroboframe Pro-T for the following reasons.

I came out of the world of photojournalism where you have to be fast and steady. I hold my cameras in the classic "rifle" position: I lay the barrel of the lens in my left palm. The palm is up with the thumb toward the filter end of the lens. My left handles the zooming and steadies everything.

I use the custom function on my Canons (#4?) that allows me to activate the autofocus with my thumb using the CF button on the back of the camera and I fire the shutter with my right index finger. (yeah, I know this sounds basic but not everybody who reads this will as experienced as you are.)

Because of all this, I chose the Pro-T. When I shoot vertical, the flash flips up above my right hand, keeping it over the lens. The Pro-T is also higher than the Press-T. I want to make sure that the shadow caused by the flash falls behind the subject and not on the wall behind them.

Another advantage I've found: when shooting horizontal, I flip the flash over to the right and I can shove the camera into a limo or other car window, or use it to fill in under a cowboy hat or baseball cap --- always a necessity in Texas..

The position of the bracket Vs. the vertical arm of the bracket allows me to fit my fingers around the accessory grip between the grip and the arm.

It works for me,
Bruce

I'm not sure what that is, but if it's some sort of quick release system, the answer is no. I generally leave the body attached. I have four A2s
