        I bought this to hold a second wireless reciever on my XF100. The bolt that comes with it is a little long for the socket on the handle of the camera, and makes it impossible to get a snug fit as the bolt can twist at the socket and on the adapter itself. I trimmed the bolt with a hacksaw and now it works as I intended it to.

        I like that I can release a wireless with the small side mounted thumb wheel as opposed to the large bottom mounted wheel on my sennheiser receiver, much quicker and easier.

        Judging from the photo I thought I could set the cold shoe into position and turn the knob below, which is really cheap plastic , until it locks securely in the correct orientation. No matter how i alter the threads, It's always cockeyed. The paint is kind of rubbery, is it good. No. It's already scratched up from trying to get it to work correctly and being turned against the plastic washer so I can't really send it back. The cold shoe itself is of decent quality. god I wish there was a camera store where i could try before I buy

        Just what the doctor ordered!

        This is invaluable if you want to mount anything to where a 1/4' mount is available either on your rig or camera. I purchased this to mount my NTG-2 to the right side of my sony fs100 (where the handgrip would go). It's just what the doctor ordered. Solidly build and holds the ntg2 like a champ!

        This did not work as I thought. I tried screwing it in the top of my Blackmagic Pocket camera but could not get the cold shoe mount to face in the proper direction. Maybe you can figure it out.

        I ordered this adapter since I work in ENG and needed an extra hot shoe to mount a second wireless receiver. So far the iKan adapter has worked great. The feel is sturdy and has yet to feel flimsy.

          I bought this for my Sony NC5U. I use it in the rear slot so I can attach my wireless mic receiver or my 7" monitor faster. So far it works flawless.

            Got this to connect one of my Elinchrom triggers to my Sekonic meter. Now I can triggr my fashes with the meter. Sekonic only has Pocketwizerd triggering inside. Screw this into the typod soket on the bottom of the meter & slid the Elinchrom skypot into the coldsheo. attach the sync cord and your done. works great when you have a spair trigger around. You don't have to take the one on your camera off to take a reading.

                I simply needed this to attach my Rode Video Mic Pro to the top of my Sony HDR-FX1. I have had no issues with it, and it came at a great price.

                        This is a great little add on to my HVX-200a. I use my front shoe for an onboard light when shooting so I had no place to mount my field monitor. This little number fits the bill perfectly and mounts in the 1/4 hole near the rear of the camera. Very solid and a great price. I can use it for anything that uses a shoe mount without worry.
