    Unlike other cold shoes listed on this site, this one does not have its own fiddling locking mechanism. Instead, it relies on your flash's built in lock, which is exactly what I wanted. It works and behaves just like the plastic flash stand that came with my flash, except it has nice brass threads for a mounting securely to light stands.

    Like others have mentioned, the item I received is slightly different than pictured, but in a good way. Instead of being made of metal as pictured, the base of the shoe is plastic (good for protecting from shorts), and has a locking-pin hole.

    I've attached pictures of the shoe as I received it.

      I purchased this flash shoe to mount a shotgun mic on a desktop tripod for doing voice overs with a mic I already had (on my video camera) rather than buying another expensive mic.

          Holds the flash foot snugly which is good in case I forget to lock it. Looks old fashioned, but well made.

            Have Graflex camera with Schneider-Kreuznach lens but no cold foot flash attachment. Using the Nish flash shoe attachment I was able to adapt camera for a more modern flash - works like a charm.

                    I was looking at an easy to use coldshoe for use with the Canon Speedlite system that would accommodate for the weather sealing skirt on the side of the mount. This cold shoe is similar to the one on top of the camera and is great because of the metal bracket combined with the plastic bottom to mitigate electrical shortage.

                    If you are looking for a cold shoe for Canon Speedlites like the 580EX or the newer 600EX, this is a great choice!

                      At first I purchased the Froyo which costs three times as much as these babies and it didn't even fit the 600 EX RT. The lock lever on the 600 felt so hard to close that I thought it would break the flash. These babies cost 1/3 of the cost of Froyo and work so much better...a nice secure fit and you don't have to force your flash's lock so hard that it would break the unit...would buy again!

                                Unlike other cold shoes listed on this site, this one does not have its own fiddling locking mechanism. Instead, it relies on your flash's built in lock, which is exactly what I wanted. It works and behaves just like the plastic flash stand that came with my flash, except it has nice brass threads for a mounting securely to light stands.

                                Like others have mentioned, the item I received is slightly different than pictured, but in a good way. Instead of being made of metal as pictured, the base of the shoe is plastic (good for protecting from shorts), and has a locking-pin hole.

                                I've attached pictures of the shoe as I received it.

                                    I agree with the previous reviewer that the product is not exactly as pictured. Nonetheless, it is extremely sturdy and functional. The metal top is obviously well secured in the plastic; and the 1/4" socket on the bottom is solid brass, not plastic. And the plastic used in this product seems to be ultra-hard, maybe like cycolac. A bonus for Nikon Speedlite owners is that it has the pin-locking hole so that your Speedlite is securely fastened. Looking at a number of products, I tried it because of the price. Then, liked it so much, I bought a bunch more. Use them on all my flash mounts: light stands, mini-tripods, several different homemade off-camera handheld flash holders, as well as an Arca-Swiss tripod mount. Love it! Does the job for my SB-800 & 600 units. Why pay more?

                                        The picture that accompanies this product is not exactly accurate. It has metal bracket 'arms', but the base area (where the speedlite contacts are made) is totally plastic. The image shows metal with a plastic 'safety' area so your speedlite doesn't short out, I guess. This is affordable and gets the job done 100%. I honestly can't see how other similar products cost any more than this one. If you're just looking for a 1/4-20 thread to cold shoe adapter, this is it. I haven't used it long or in-the-field yet, but I can't imagine anything going wrong...there isn't much to it.
