Now the Cold Shoe is on the other foot!

When you just HAVE to add some 1/4x20 threaded item to your camera and all you have is a cold/hot shoe. I use it to attach a little shade umbrella to my Sony A1U while shooting long exteriors and works like a charm.

Adorama phone rep. unknowledgeable

I called Adorama's sales representative asking specifically if the shoe to tripod adapter fit the Sony/Minolta propriety flash. I was told "it fits all flashes". Click. It does not fit Sony/Minolta late flashes.

small but so important

Adorama service has been as good as it gets. This purchase is such a minor piece of gear but you absolutely need it when you need it and it does exactly what it was supposed to and I trust it no mater what angle the camera is on.

accessory

By

from conneautville, pa

A customer asked if this could be used on his tripod. The answer is "no" since it's menat to be used in a hot/cold shoe of a camera. I use it to attach my Zoom audio recorder to my DVX-100 camcorder.

not too bad

By

from DC, the Nations Capitol  -  Professional

this piece isn't too wimpy, I wish the metal part that goes into the shoe was a little beefier.. I have this for mounting a Quantum Q-Flash to stroboframe so we'll see how long it takes to fail. There are only a few options for 1/4-20 to hotshoe and this will be fine for a light head like Norman/ Lume but I'm a tad nervous with the Q-Flash.

Works great. Added a small ballhead to the top of a flip-frame so I could add Swivel to a Speedlight with no swivel. Now I can bounce anywhere .

After 20 some years, I finally found it.

I use it on a camera handle mount to attach a wired TTL flash which can be detached to shine on the subject at any handheld angle I want off the lens axis. Great gizmo.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOE W  I tried to assemble a kit of all possible adapters that I might need to use the LED light.
Shopper  Will this work with the Flashpoint 160 LED light? I really don't know much about any sort of mount attachments
JOE W  I have done a "dry run" with both of the identified products, and they do connect together. I have not tried a field test of this set up, so can't really say whethey they work under operational stresses.
JONATHAN F  Are there two knob pieces, i.e. one that can spin up to tighten against the threads, and one to spin down to hold the adapter (and whatever is on top) snug in the hotshoe?
NEIL H  Yes, that is correct. It has proven very secure in my uses.
