Off Camera Flash Gear - Ianiro Kupo Grip

There is a load of gear on the market for photographers who shoot with Speedlites and small hot shoe flashes. The good people at Ianiro UK have created a off camera flash essentials kit providing you with durable and sturdy kit which will give many years of service.

The items when bought together represent a saving of between £10 and £13.40. Were you to buy similar items from another big name manufacturer the same kit would cost between £118.00 & £161.00

It’s been said before, buy cheap, buy twice. Whilst Kupo Grip & Support is less expensive than other brands it is not inferior in any way. I started using Kupo gear about a year ago after experiencing difficulty obtaining Manfrotto gear. In my experience Kupo Grip is solid, well made with an excellent finish.

What's in the kit?


Handy Stand, also known as the Nano stand. Compact when folded (49cm), weighs 1.1kg and extends to 2.27m



Umbrella Swivel Bracket allows you to use brollies with a shaft diameter up to 8mm. The large friction lock will allow use of larger brollies.



Hot shoe adaptor fits directly to the thread on the end of the 055 Handy Stand or to the Umbrella Swivel Bracket with the aid of a Universal ⅝” Stud.



Camera Flash Clamp allows you to position you flash when and where it’s inconvenient with a lighting stand. I use these on the end of a lightweight ⅝” boom or even with the help of my 1420 VAL Spigot on the end of a painters extension pole.



Universal ⅝” Stud - you can never have too many of these which is why there are two included in this deal!
