OK, Paul Buff and gang have said they are shipping umbrella mounts for the ABR800 in the next few weeks, but I needed to mount my umbrella more immediately! Since they had already shipped me a replacement camera mount bracket I decided to put the old one to good use. By drilling two holes in the bracket and mounting it upside down on the other it put the umbrella shaft right where I wanted it. I tightened it in place by taking apart a small tripod umbrella mount, but you could use an eye hook or something screwed through both brackets and fastened underneath. This will definitely do until the real thing arrives!
