Product Highlights
  • Adds PC Connection to Camera w/o Loosing Hot Shoe

Vello's Universal Hot Shoe Adapter - PC Connection + Top Shoe allows you to add a PC connection to any camera that does not come with a built-in PC sync connection (excluding Sony cameras with Multi Interface Shoe, or older cameras with Sony/Minolta type shoe), while still retaining the existing hot shoe functionality.

This adapter fits into any standard hot shoe and adds a PC sync connection to your camera, allowing you to connect to a studio flash using the PC connection. In addition, the adapter also features a hot shoe on top (non-TTL), which allows you to keep a flash mounted on the camera (or any other shoe accessory) while simultaneously connecting the camera to a studio light via a PC sync cord. Or, use it to provide a PC connection to a flash that doesn't have a built-in one, when positioned off-camera.

Note! This adapter does not support TTL flash operation.
Note! This adapter does not provide high-voltage sync protection, and is not recommended for use with flash units that have a trigger voltage of more than 6V.

      It might seem stupid to write a review on a hot-shoe adaptor, but this little guy has saved me HUNDREDS of dollars – and when you're shooting for your living, the more you can save, the more you can earn.

      Build quality is stellar! I LOVE the metal shoe mount! Flashed fit snuggly and securely in the hot shoe, I never have to worry about them slipping out and falling off the stand or monopod (which is great because nothing makes you look less professional then gear that fails.)

      I bought these to use some older film flashes with my pocket wizard Plus X's (Another AMAZING product). I like being able to use gear I already own. The flashes still work great – why waste them?

      I use this with a Rebel T2I and the product workds well except I have it in a mobile photo booth so the slighest movement knocks the cable out of the adapter. I have resorted to putting tape on the back of the sync cord and have not had a problem since.

            Hooked to my Nikon D700 I am able to connect a sync cord also with my pocket Wizard 3.
            It has saved me because the sync socket is broke in camera and is not worth fixing. This definatly does the trick.

              This product like almost all of my purchases from B&H is great. However the recent purchase of a Wolverine SNaP-14MP was a complete waste of money. It lasted only two months and now is completely useless.

              Much better than another brand costing half the price of this one. And a threaded PC port too. Very satisfied.

                      It works great, and the inclusion of a top shoe is worth the extra few dollars.

                                        Quality construction, shoes slips on easy and tightens down with ease. The shoe on top means you still have hot shoe possibilities despite the fact you are synced.

                                            I use this hotshot adaptor for my Nikon SB-600 speedlights which do not have a sync port built into them. I need the sync port in order to connect my PocketWizards to the speedlights. This adaptor is a perfect solution. It is well built and does not look or feel cheap. It is a solid piece of gear and I would buy again and again.

                                                Pocket wizard plus III, with two off camera flashes. All Canon stuff works great. Clean, well made, easy to connect. Time will tell how well they hold up. Best bang for your Buck from B & H.

                                                  It might seem stupid to write a review on a hot-shoe adaptor, but this little guy has saved me HUNDREDS of dollars – and when you're shooting for your living, the more you can save, the more you can earn.

                                                  Build quality is stellar! I LOVE the metal shoe mount! Flashed fit snuggly and securely in the hot shoe, I never have to worry about them slipping out and falling off the stand or monopod (which is great because nothing makes you look less professional then gear that fails.)

                                                  I bought these to use some older film flashes with my pocket wizard Plus X's (Another AMAZING product). I like being able to use gear I already own. The flashes still work great – why waste them?

                                                  I got these to use with my Starfire speedlights that do not have a sync jack on them. they attach firmly to my light stands and the flash snugs in nicely to the shoe adapter. well worth the money.

                                                      Bought this to go with PocketWizard because my Pentax Flash units don't have a sync cord connection. This item worked perfectly. Just what i needed.

                                                        This item goes with me whenever I travel. I shoot a lot from older cameras and I have mostly modern flashes, so this allows me to utilize both while only having to purchase a male-male pc connector.

                                                          My new Nikon D-600 has no PC connection, believe it or not! This adaptor fixes that. Works just fine.
