        Comments about J-Rod The J-Cube Accessory Shoe Adapter & Mic Mount:

        The J-Cube belongs in your camera bag if you area videographer who shoots video in a variety ofsituations. . I recently shot a video for an outdoor event, a dedication of a small park that honored two deceased fire chiefs. I wanted to utilize two wireless microphones, but how do you do this with your camera mounted on a monopod? The J-Cube is the perfect solution. This ingenious little device attaches to your camera'shot shoe and gives you 3 usable hotshoes: 2 on the sides of the cube and 1 on top. Because my wireless receivers do not have a hot shoe, I decided to purchase 2 K-Tek K-SPT's with flat shoe surface plates. I installed some heavy duty Velcro on the plate surfaces and heavy duty corresponding velcro on the back side of my 2 wireless receivers and then connected the cables to my camera's audio imputs. The plates themselves come with hotshoe connections that allow you to attach them to the hot shoe of the J-Cube. Before I purchased the J-Cube I had to make do with a make-shift way of the attaching the 2 receivers to the leg of my monopod...and it was awkward and un-wieldy If you need light...remember there is stillthat third hot shoe on the top of the J-Cube. With the J-Cube, you have so much more flexibilty and "neatness" to your setup convenience...and wow does it look "cool." The J-Cube has MORE than paid for its self([$]) in my first job. I absolutely love it!!! Gabe deMoura, Professionaol Videographer GATSBY VIDEO PRODUCTIONS, North Providence,Rhode Island.

                  I use the product with an audio recorder and wireless receiver on my Canon 5D MkII and it holds everything without being bulky. This thing is really durable and light-it is aluminum. Not a cheapo accessory.

                          The J-Cube saved me on location with a 5D, field monitor, and a wireless receiver. The J-Cube is strong and light. And as far as being overpriced, [$] for a custom bracket is not out of line if it works. Other manufacturers charge much more for their brackets.

                            I use this when shooting video. It allows me to attach a separate digital recorder to the camera, run a mic through it and into the camera with a cable so I have the redundancy of audio plus it allows me to monitor the audio levels with a pair of headphones.

                            I haven't used my specific mount that much but I have used this accessory on documentary shoots to attach a Zoom external recorder and 2 lav receivers to the top of a 5D handheld rig. It is useful and remains tight so that the items don't break loose.

                            Need to hang two wirelesses and a LED light on my little Canon DV cam and this is the only thing I've found that does the trick. The only complaint is the price but, I guess, when you're the only game in town, you can charge more and it does seem to be well built.

                            I use it to attach my Zoom H4 to my Canon 7D to shoot movies. GREAT WAY to get professional level video for much less than a video camera. The only thing is I'm not sure why the J Cube is still so expensive - it's just an attachment.

                              Comments about J-Rod The J-Cube Accessory Shoe Adapter & Mic Mount:

                              The J-Cube feels substantial in your hand – this is a serious piece of equipment. It is very solidly built, uses high quality components, and adds just the right amount of additional shoes to my camera. The spacing of the added shoes on the J-Cube is just right to mount equipment without any encroachment. And because the J-Cube is very compact, it does not add much height to the camera. It also offers a far more secure mounting platform that does not wobble around and has a low center of gravity.

                              If you have accessories with rectangular hot shoe plates, you will be stuck with mounting them vertically on the side shoes. I had this problem. So I contacted Jeff at J-Rod and he made me a new J-Cube with the side mounts turned through 90 degrees. Now I can mount accessories with rectangular hot shoe plates so that they point forward or backward along the top of the camera, and not straight up. A lot of accessories come with square hot shoe plates which will slide in to the standard J-Cube. But just to let you know that if you need a J-Cube with the side mounts rotated 90 degrees, all you need to do is ask.

                                  I use it on my HDR-FX1000 to hold a light, small shotgun, and wireless receiver. I've tried several shoe solutions and this is far and away the strongest and steadiest. My only complaint is the shoe fittings are a little tight. I hope I don't break an attachment on one of the mounts.

                                    Comments about J-Rod The J-Cube Accessory Shoe Adapter & Mic Mount:

                                    I use the J Cube with my Lumix GH2.
                                    When I first got it, I thought it was a little big, but when I started using it I realized that it is the perfect size.
                                    Not only I need to mount several things at the same time, but also my Zoom H4 recorder, when mounted on the top, wouldn't allow me to properly use the viewfinder.
                                    With the J-cube, I can mount it to the side and it doesn't obstruct the access to the viewfinder. Plus I can place a light and a mic on the extra 2 shoes.

                                      This J-cube I have used about 6 time by know, I like it because is small and easy to carry but it is a little expensive for what it is.

                                        The J-cube helps the small doc filmmaking unit do a reliable run-and-gun operation, by offering additional mounts for lavs/shotguns/lights, as needed. Works great, installs easily. Highly recommended.

                                          I use J-cube with Sony V1 camera. Fits perfectly, even with built in shotgun mic holder, but right side cannot be used...still enough room for my sehnnheiser wireless audio on right and video light on top. Awesome product :)

                                              Originally the J-Cube worked in a limited capacity on my Sony Z-5 preventing the opening of the viewfinder. Upon contacting Jeff Rhode at [@] Jeff went out of his way to come up with a revised j-Cube. By off-centering three of the shoes on the J-Cube, the viewfinder on the my Sony Z-5 can now be opened, closed and rotated with a wireless mike attached vertically on the left side, a horizontally positioned wireless receiver on the right and an on-camera light on top. What was at first frustrating to use is now very useful. Jeff went above and beyond the call of duty in customer service.
