. . . but I wish I'd read the description properly to see that it was being shipped from China. I notice now that they have changed the name of the supplier and it does in fact now state that it ships from China. That's an improvement. When I bought the item it was not prominent at all and when I discovered that shipping was to take between two and four weeks I was not impressed.

As for the item itself, well it is what it is. Nothing to get excited about. But it does what it is supposed to so no complaints.

This little bit of kit is well made and very useful. It is a convertor that allows you to attach kit with a standard tripod fitting to a standard size flash hot (or cold) shoe.

I use mine to attach a small HD cam to the hotshoe of my DSLR. This allows me to grab footage of whatever I am photographing, hands free. Very useful.

I also have a lightstand that goes up to 4 metres in height. There is a flash mount on the stand so I use the adapter to affix my hd cam to the stand. I can then blast it up in the air for nice high angle shots.

The hotshoe portion of the adapter is metal and i was wary of causing a short when mounting adapter on my cameras hotshoe. I got round this with a small square of black electricians tape.

This adapter is a useful and cheap fix that is genuinely useful.

I have a selection of lighting kit, some v.old. with this I can fix onto fixed shoe and then fit a small ballhead and mount a flashgun on it. you can never have to many things to assist you and for a little outlay even if you don't use them very often they are great when its just what you need.

Simple gadget to allow you to attach another camera to your DSLR's hot-shoe to allow you to video your subject as well as taking photos. Or you could attach a microphone or other accessory which doesn't have a hot-shoe adapter. Seems well made. Delivery was a bit slow though.

Its Ok, even though it looks stronger its made of anodised aluminium and the adjustment wheel thread is not at right angle to the adjustment screw “it wobbles”. Its light, and it does work, and for the price you really can’t complain!!

Not terrible, not amazing. Its a somewhat locking hotshoe mount with a somewhat adjustable amount of screw to go into your devices. Pretty good for the price, but delivery took ages.

It does the job mounting a Gopro camera onto the hotshoe of my DSLR.

i did have to shorten the thread with a hacksaw so that it mounted correctly but does the job.

Fine for occasional use. I bought it to convert my hammerhead type flash into one that can slid into my radio receiver.( It has access
for a 1/4 inch thread on the base)

Does exactly what is said.
Excellent construction and well made. Great addition to my collection of other hot-shoe and accessories for my Camcorder.
