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(including newer Sony cameras with Multi Interface Shoe, excluding Sony/Minolta type cameras), 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.

                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.

                                          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.

                                            I use it to connect a softbox on my Canon T1i. I like it it. I like the fact that I can connect a flash on top of it. Works as advertise.

                                              This is the perfect hot shoe when using multiple speedlights during portrait sessions or for adding light to any scene.

                                                  We have a Lumix LX5 and this adaptor works great with an older Novatron power pack with the pc connection.

                                                    i had old sunpak flashes and wanted ot use on canon 60D that i recently bought. I did not consider about the pc sync cord that is missing in 60D. so i found that these converter allow us to use flashes with pc sync on canon camera. so i had tech chat with bhphoto and they confirmed me. it works very well with D60. all you have make sure is that the flash does not required more than 6 volt for firing trigger according to vellogear as well.
