  • 180° Tilt / 360° Rotation
  • Standard Shoe Mount Fits Most Cameras

Polaroid's Swivel + Bounce Lighting Shoe adds a new level of versatility to your on-camera light or flash. Attaching directly to a camcorder or DSLR's accessory shoe, the unit provides 180° forward and back tilt along with 360° rotation. This effectively lets you position your light at any angle the scene requires, from bouncing off the ceiling, the floor, a side wall, or an off-axis card or reflector. With the built-in standard tripod thread, you can also mount the shoe to a tripod or stand to serve as an off-camera light source.

Combines 180° front-to-back tilt with full 360° rotation to allow nearly unlimited positioning of your light source.
Standard shoe mount fits on virtually all cameras and camcorders with a lighting or accessory shoe.
Designed to accept all standard flash units and video lights.
Built-in tripod thread for use with remote lights and slaves.
Large molded locking screws keep lights in place.

          I use this Swivel + Bounce Shoe with the Vello CB-510 Bracket and a Becsor LED-125 Light to "Modulate Brightness" when doing up close Video of Musicians Singing. My Panasonic DMC-ZS20 fits in this combination perfectly producing Full HD in the AVCHD Format!

            Finally! I've found the perfect combination of mounting devices to make it possible to mount my FS-CF Pro DTE Flash Recorder to my Canon XHA1s camera! The Polaroid Swivel/Bounce Lighting Shoe coupled with the
            K-Tek KTKSPT Shoe Plate Mount allow me to connect the device to the hot shoe mount, then via velcro strips, the Flash Drive mounts both out of the way and close enough to the firewire connector that the 12" cable reaches! I've been looking for this setup since I bought the camera two years ago!

                I use this on my home made fig rig to tilt a 4 channel mixer. Great up and down support, but will swing around if I tilt it too far one way or the other. Other than that, mostly metal construction. Im not affraid it will break.

                Comments about Polaroid Swivel + Bounce Lighting Shoe:

                I bought this to attach a video light to my Canon XA10. The shotgun mic holder was too close for the light to fit so I needed a riser. This was the perfect height. I bought this one over the Bescor SA-1. I like it and it works well but it has some quirks. What I like most is that the construction is 90% metal. Both shoe mounts are metal and the body is metal too. The only plastic is the screw nob. What I dont like is that it is very difficult to get fully tighted. I felt like I was going to strip the threads. For some reason the screw nob not only tightens the tilt but also the swivel function. This means ocassionally the light would twist around when I leaned my camera forward. For the price I am happy and it will serve me well.

                    I intended to use this for mounting my 430ex off camera, but the swivel is too weak to keep my flash in position, even when I tightened the knob all the way.
