Is there a flash coupler that can go between the camera body and the flash allowing the flash to rotate side-to-side? Similar to the Nikon AS-1 Flash Coupler.

I want to be as light and versatile as possible, and therefore use one of the smaller speedlights, but they only rotate up. Yes, I can use my 580ex or transmitters, but that becomes more clunky and overkill than a small, versatile flash.

  • I don't believe that there is, but I could be wrong. What use would you gain from it? Strobes have pivot heads and radio transmitters don't need to be pointed in a direction...what accessory are you using that would benefit from this? (just curious) – OnBreak. Apr 4 '18 at 16:10

  • Gotcha - so a flash bracket would definitely be out as well... – OnBreak. Apr 4 '18 at 20:31
  • Got one of those already ;) – ego_ Apr 5 '18 at 4:47
  • I'm also assuming simply using the AS-1 and manual flash settings isn't an option...? – OnBreak. Apr 5 '18 at 18:59

I doubt you'll find one, as these days, most speedlights have heads that swivel. I'd suggest that you consider trading in a little bulk for swivel capability, and looking at purchasing a Canon-compatible small hotshoe flash with a swivel head, such as a Canon 320EX (270º), Godox TT350 (270º), Nissin i40 (360º), or Meike MK320 (150º).
