The item photographed may not be the actual model but is used for illustrative purposes only.

The Nikon Offset Bracket first appeared in May 1956 along with the newly available BC-IV shoe mounted compact flash unit. The bracket was made just for the BC-IV. This ingenious little grey plastic and metal adapter allowed you to mount your BC-IV and maintain the unique equally unique cordless clash contact feature of the new Nikon S2 rangefinder camera. You could position you flash at a 45° angle and off to the left to reduce redeye and other unwanted side-effects of direct flash. This allowed one to fit the proper finder for the lens or Multi-finder and your adapter could accommodate both items. This is one of the rarest items for the Nikon rangefinder system
