    This items does exactly what it looks like it would. It gives you a shoe mount somewhere that you need one. In my case, I use it to mount a Zoom recorder on top of a Canon 7D DSLR on a shoulder rig. While not the most practical set up, it gives me an option for tight quarters shooting or where a boom operator is not practical.

    Depending on how you use it, it may be difficult to align your gear because of the tight finger space. But, with a little care, you can do it. I was not able to get a super tight lock down on my gear, but then again, it probably was not meant for the way I use it.

    It is very small, study and handy. You just need to make sure you don't lose it. I like it.

    Cant say a whole lot here it is what it is. This little guy gets the job done, it can be a pain to tighten down all the way and keep secure, but it is small and compact wich works better for gorrila shooting.

    Wish it had a rubber or cork liner at the top where it fastened.

            I use this to mount a LPCM recorder to the hot shoe of my DSLR camera. It stores the recorder securely and keeps it handy.

              Comments about Pearstone Accessory Shoe Adapter with 1/4"-20 Stud Connector:

              This came in a zoom h4n kit I bought. I use this to mount the h4n recorder on top of my Canon T2i (550D) to record live performances. This little guy does its job. My only concern is that there's no way to really secure it to the top of my camera, I'm always afraid it's going to slip off, considering the h4n is rather heavy thing to be on top of my t2i. Also, several times after screwing this onto my h4n and mounting it onto my t2i, I realized the h4n was "crooked", it's parallel to the ground, but kind of faces toward the left or right of my t2i and not straight ahead. Maybe I didn't screw it on right or something but it's kind of annoying. Doesn't seem to affect the quality of the sound majorly though.

                    I use these for my camera lights. I hate the swivel mounts that come with the lights. my lights are so wide I do not need to swivel them up or down. this mount eliminates the floppiness you get from those swivel mounts.
                    I also use one of these to mount my juicedlink box to a shoe

                        I use it for attaching a shotgun mic to my DSLR. A simple, solid attachment that keeps the mic facing forward instead of swaying to the side.

                                I bought this to attach my Ninja 2 to my camcorder as a basic accessory - it has 2 separate screws/dials to secure the unit to the hotshoe and a monitor or another accessory. The dials are easy to turn and provide a very secure grip to the base and the accessory. I wish they included a ball head as well into the unit to allow for some degree of tilting - without it, the accessory is always at right angles to the camcorder and this can be problem if your accessory is a monitor, because you would have to bend or raise for a good view.

                                  For very light accessories this will do the job, barely. I'm using it to hold a Zoom H1 recorder on a DSLR and the threads seem just a tad tight. The locking ring doesn't have any sort of gripping material so it tends to loosen easily and seems a bit loose on the thread so it wobbles as you lock. For light things it will do the job just check frequently.

                                          I use this by inserting the flat plate into hot shoe and then screwing gadgets onto the other end, that is as complicated as it gets.

                                            Comments about Pearstone Accessory Shoe Adapter with 1/4"-20 Stud Connector:

                                            This is a very simple, all metal, anodised adapter with three parts: the shoe mount with its threaded column, the lower screw piece to lock into the hotshoe and the upper screw piece to lock into the tripod mount.

                                            The shoe mount and its attendant screw work fine, fitting the hotshoe well. However, the tripod mount screw piece has a design flaw. Contrary to some reports I found plenty of room between the top of my Nikon D300s and the bottom of the Tascam DR-40 I was mounting to it, so accessing the two screws to tighten them was easy. What was difficult was sufficiently tightening the upper screw against the tripod socket so that the DR-40 couldn't swivel around. The smooth, metal upper surface of the adapter doesn't lock well against the smooth plastic of the DR-40 and requires substantial tightening to ensure the DR-40 stays still.

                                            One could blame this on the DR-40's design, but this adapters design exacerbates the problem.

                                            Apart from that, I'm impressed with the solid build, compact size, and light weight, and I expect this to last forever. Not cheap, though.

                                                Good product work as expected. I bought this device to connect my zoom h1 to my canon t4i and works great, the zoom remain attached withou movement.
