      It does the job it is designed to do, and I much prefer this to having to mount my Rode mic on a separate handle. However, being designed for the Canon hot shoe, it could fit a little better and not totally rely on the tension of the screw to hold it in place. Also, as others have mentioned, on my HF G10 it extends over the zoom control. I would recommend this as an alternative to using a separate mount.

      Good Design, Shaky Execution

      The self-contained locking screw is easier to get to than most of this type of gear. And the product meets a definite need that Canon has created in their zeal to be over-proprietary.Read complete review

      The self-contained locking screw is easier to get to than most of this type of gear. And the product meets a definite need that Canon has created in their zeal to be over-proprietary.

      But the unit tends to be "wobbly", due in part to its high profile, and due in part to the plastic used on the lug that fits into a Canon.

      So, its a useful product --- that could have been executed a little better.

          Comments about Pearstone CSA-II Universal Shoe Adapter for Canon Camcorders with Mini Advanced Shoe:

          This adapter does NOT function as a mini-shoe. It has no electrical transfer so you cannot use a mic with this adapter as you would with the mini-shoe.

          I had a microphone that simply had to be inserted into my older Canon camcorder. The shoe connected immediately to the mic and everything was fine... until Canon put a new shoe on it's new videocameras which did not fit the microphone.

          I thought this adapter would allow me to use the mic, but it did not. It's simply a plastic holder. A good one, but it does not connect to the mini-shoe electrical connection.

                It fit a little loose and it doesn't tighten down easy which during use I find myself holding it with my hand when possible. Price is fair but would like something that locks in place a little better.

                    I use this to mount an Azden shotgun mic on top of my Canon Vixia HF G20 video camera. I am planning on getting an even better shotgun mic in the near future. Unfortunately, Canon has their own proprietary mount for using Canon accessories to the camera. This shoe adapter is an absolute necessity if you want to mount a better quality shotgun mic to the camera.

                    You could spend twice as much on the camera to get a "professional" or "pro-sumer" model that has a standard shoe mount, or a handle with microphone inputs, or you could buy this useful, inexpensive little gadget.

                    You could mount a small LED video light on it instead of a microphone, but I use it primarily for a shotgun mic.

                        I purchased a light for my camcorder which is used to video nursing simulations and do faculty interviews. Upon receiving said light, I realized it would NOT fit my camcorder properly. I could mount it, but it was smashing into my zoom toggle button. Surely someone made an adapter to remedy this issue. Of course! Ordered adapter and voila! It works perfectly.

                                  Because Cannon tries to make some of their customers use the Mini Advanced Shoe accessories, this little adapter is almost necessary if you have incompatible existing equipment. Much easier than buying new (expensive) equipment.

                                    An external microphone is far better than the built-in one on the camcorder but needed a shoe adapter to hold the microphone. This adapter locks on to the camcorder and holds the mic securely in place.

                                    So it is a lock-on, hold-on adapter.

                                      I own A Vixia HF M500 and this shoe adapter does the trick for being able to use my mic on the camera. I made my own boom pole for my Rhode Video mic and although it comes in handy I needed to use my mic on board my camera as well. This shoe adapter can be useful for doing indoor shots or outside shots depending own your location.

                                      This item did just what I wanted and the construction quality is very good. The only thing I would change is that the body still slightly overhangs the zoom lever for no reason. With just a little re-design, this would not be an issue and there is no reason why it has to be built the way it is. Still, a very good quality product that exactly meets my needs at a reasonable price. I would certainly recommend this item to anyone considering purchasing it.

                                        I purchased one for attaching an external mic or small light when needed. It fits well and does the job. I agree with other reviewers that it could be a little more sturdy. It held a long shotgun mic and shock mount with ease.

                                          I have 3 Canon Vixia HD cameras (2 HF S100s/1 HF G10) for forensic work: I use 1 camera for hand held, on location evidence shooting, a 2 camera set up for documenting production process, and 3 cameras for interviews.

                                          This Adapter is perfect for using an adjustable LED light over the lens plane, using a shoe mount level, and for various microphones. I've used others and it's the best so far. Besides being solid, its height gives me easy access to the zoom bar.

                                          After all, it can be these little items that make or break the process.

                                            After going through the transitions of film to digital still and adding video to my process in forensic productions, I have found that it is often the little things that can be essential.

                                            I now own 3 Canon Vixia HD Video cameras (not trying to be (Spielberg) for hand held on location evidence scenes, 2 shot productions documentation, and 3 camera interviews. The need to place various accessories on the camera, lined up with the lens, is often a plus.

                                            This little adapter is quite solid when tightened down on the mini shoes of the HF G10 and HF S100 cameras, and also elevates the accessory (adjustable LED light, mic, etc) to make using the zoom lever an easy process.

                                              So far this has been a great piece of equipment. It fits perfectly on my canon vixia camera. I use my camera for youth sports, weddings, and general home use.
