The patented Phottix Varos Pro S Umbrella Holder was designed by professional photographers to mount a hot shoe flash and umbrella to a light stand or tripod. Perfect on location or in the studio, umbrellas provide soft light and are great for portraits or special effects. The new Varos Pro is 300% stronger than previous versions and features Aluminum alloy body with a metal coldshoe, 3/8” and 1/4” female threaded insert, male 3/8” and 1/4”screws included.
The teardrop-shaped umbrella mount accepts umbrella with shafts 7-10mm and the 8 degrees slanted umbrella mount allows more light to hit the center of the umbrella. The patented umbrella clamp has been redesigned to offer 300% more locking force while keeping umbrella shafts more secure and damage free. The 180 degree tilting mechanism supports up to 55 lbs (25 kg). New locking features holds the bottom lugs secure until locking button is released.
