Lastolite Tilt Head - with locking hotshoe
The Lastolite Tilthead with Locking Hotshoe is designed to allow you use a hot-shoe mountable flashgun off camera. It features a screw locking shoe mount, which offers an additional locking mechanism to work alongside the built in method used on the flashgun. The dimensions of the hotshoe on the bottom of each flashgun can vary from one model/manufacturer to the other. However, the locking hotshoe design can comfortably accommodate these variances.
It features a socket to allow an umbrella with shaft of up to 8mm to be positioned either for shoot through or bounce.
The Lastolite Tilthead bracket will fit onto any standard lighting stand with a traditional spigot fitment. The tilt mechanism features a ratchet style pivot which eliminates any sudden movement when the locking screw is released - a vast improvement over the cheaper non-ratchet heads available from other manufacturers.
Constructed from lightweight cast aluminium, rather than plastic - as you would expect from Lastolite, this is built to last.
