    I thought my 580EX had input for my wireless flash trigger. When I discovered it didn't, I picked up this inexpensive hot shoe/tripod mount and it worked like a charm. Now, i use my Canon flash off camera as a hair light and trigger it without wires.
    The people at B&H are knowledgeable and helpful. I can't stay out of this place.

    Be careful. This is not what you may think. The "hot" shoe is only on the top of this "adapter." I bought this thinking that it would work with my Nikon D7000 as the D7000 does not have a PC cord connection built into the camera. I bought this thinking it would work. I guess I didn't read the description closely enough so shame on me...but, the description should be more explicit so people don't make the mistake that I made. This "adapter" is for mounting a device that connects with a hotshoe to a tripod screw. Just read closely as I did not. The three stars are for the description of the product not the product itself.

      Recently I purchased the Hot Shoe/ Tripod Mount by Nisha. For years I've really only don natural light or on camera flash. Now I'm experimenting with side strobes using the pocket wizard. The B&H STAFF were extremely helpful and knowledge able about what my needs would be. Thank you for your help

          I used this for an extremely old flash to connect to a PocketWizard Plus III for off camera flash. The flash didn't have a PC sync and this adapter gave it one.

            Useful to trigger a remote flash. The pin connections were a little tight, but acceptable.

                  Comments about Nisha Hot Shoe/Tripod Mount:

                  I got this to replace the two other tripod hot shoe PC mount that were made of plastic and snapped in half after a few uses. This one seems much sturdier, but the flash doesn't like to stay in it despite locking it down. It fell out 3 times sitting straight. Now I tape the flash in the mount with gaffer's tape and it works fine.

                    I bought this mount to attach an LED light to a tripod, and it does the job pretty well. And it's a lot more affordable compared to some other products that were twice the price.

                      Works great i used it on a tripod, I used it on a Light stand, I used on a Tripod witha balled head, I prefer using it on a light stand with a balled head unit to give me maximum flexability and still be able to use my tripod for my camera. The PC ports gives me the flexability to attach a trigger, such as a pocketwizard without interfering with the Flash unit.

                          It works well and for the money, it's a great value.

                          Have to be careful and lock the flash tightly or it may come off at angle.

                                Be careful. This is not what you may think. The "hot" shoe is only on the top of this "adapter." I bought this thinking that it would work with my Nikon D7000 as the D7000 does not have a PC cord connection built into the camera. I bought this thinking it would work. I guess I didn't read the description closely enough so shame on me...but, the description should be more explicit so people don't make the mistake that I made. This "adapter" is for mounting a device that connects with a hotshoe to a tripod screw. Just read closely as I did not. The three stars are for the description of the product not the product itself.

                                  I attach this mount with a quick release plate and use it on my tripod. This is very quick and convenient way to make use of your tripod as a light stand if you don't want to handhold your speed lite.

                                          I thought my 580EX had input for my wireless flash trigger. When I discovered it didn't, I picked up this inexpensive hot shoe/tripod mount and it worked like a charm. Now, i use my Canon flash off camera as a hair light and trigger it without wires.
                                          The people at B&H are knowledgeable and helpful. I can't stay out of this place.

                                                I use this to use a tripod as a flash stand and it works perfectly. Despite it's cheap plastic look in the picture it actually is very solidly made.
                                                Even if you think you won't use it that much it's a great little piece of gear to have in your bag just in case.

                                                  Comments about Nisha Hot Shoe/Tripod Mount:

                                                  I recently upgraded my tripod, and thought I'd turn my old tripod into an off-camera flash stand. This hot shoe does the trick, and you can't beat the price.

                                                  The only objection I've had so far is that the flash seems a little wobbly in the mount. Not enough that it's a concern - I just can feel a slight wiggle, and occasionally hear a click as the spring in the shoe pushes to stabilize the flash.

                                                  That said, it isn't a problem and the price is right -- I'd buy it again.

                                                  I use this on a tripod for a slave flash. I also use a dual flash bar for a DSLR and a Flip Ultra HD videocam mounted on a monopod. I modified a gooseneck with this on it to hold a SL-20LX Universal LED Camera Light between the cameras. It's used mostly as a video light as the DSLR has a hot shoe flash mounted, but it is sometimes used for photos instead of the flash. Great price for such a handy little tool.
