    I recently bought this accessory from B & H as a replacement after I lost the one that came with my Nikon SB-910. At first I din't expect much but it turned out to be more useful that what I had before.

    I like using my two SB-910 speed lights, especially where there is not electricity connection. Using the flash off camera allows me the flexibility to be creative with my lighting and also to when bouncing it off another surface you avoid the harsh light burns on your subject's face.

    Recently, I was shooting at an exhibition where I was using my two speed lights in combination with two strobes and one modelling light. This accessory enabled me to mount my infra red receiver for the flash and the strobe in addition to my two speed lights.

    Also you can use it on a flat surface where it stands on its own or you can screw it on a light stand since it provides for that. The light stand screw at the bottom has a metallic coating, giving it much more endurance.

    It also holds the flash very firm that it cannot slide out. I have had incidences where my flash has fallen down by sliding out of the socket but this one holds very firmly. I recently also used it in a shoot inside a car for advertising, where there was definitely no space for light stands.

    Its quite compact and well build and seems that it can last for many years. It surpasses the one that came with my SB-910. This is a must have for photographers.

    Thanks to B & H for your efficiency in delivery and excellent customer service. You have become my most trusted camera equipment suppliers.

        My flash did not come with the stand. I knew I could use the flash behind my subject. I read the reviews but was skeptical due to price and looking cheap. I wouldn't want to drop it but it is sturdy, and I can even screw it to my tripod if need be. I would recommend this product.

                I use this to mount my flash to use in slave mode. It works great. Didn't think it would be sturdy enough but it provides more than enough support.

                  Comments about Vello Compact Shoe Stand for Universal Shoe Mount Accessories:

                  This Vello stand is an upgrade over the stand that might have come with your Speedlite. It is handy to use for off-camera flash. Your Speedlite mounts in the center cold shoe. There are two additional (side) cold shoes to mount other devices, such as a radio trigger that would connect via PC cord to your Speedlite. In a pinch you could A-clamp this stand to a vertical structure to get your Speedlite mounted on the wall, but I don't think it's intended for this. The bottom of the stand has a threaded brass receiver so the stand can be mounted on a light stand instead of on a flat surface. Construction is more robust than Canon/Nikon original. A good piece of gear to have in your bag, If you light with off-camera Speedlites you'll find yourself using it frequently. Handy for architectural interiors. There is a comparable over-sized stand that's H-shaped, but this one is more practical.

                      It holds a flash, plus two other hot shoe items (such as remote triggers). I was pleasantly surprised to see that it has a threaded base for mounting on light stands or tripods. It is small and easy to stick in a thin pocket in a bag, so you can always have it with you.

                        I was doing a project for a table shot. As you would expect, I lost half the Shoe Mount stands for my SB-900s. You never think you are going to need them until you actually do.

                        So I really didn't want to pay the cost Nikon's price for something I may never need again, so Vello to the rescue.

                        Turns out it was better than the Original stands. The wider footprint came in handy and was much more stable. The stand allows you to orient the hot shoe in different directions too.

                        Now I keep a couple of these in my Stand Bag and one in the side pocket of my camera bag. Its amazing how handy they come in when you take the time to think about it.

                          3 different cold hot shoe spots. Seems like it won't shatter like the delicate ones made by canon. Well made.

                                      Comments about Vello Compact Shoe Stand for Universal Shoe Mount Accessories:

                                      I recently bought this accessory from B & H as a replacement after I lost the one that came with my Nikon SB-910. At first I din't expect much but it turned out to be more useful that what I had before.

                                      I like using my two SB-910 speed lights, especially where there is not electricity connection. Using the flash off camera allows me the flexibility to be creative with my lighting and also to when bouncing it off another surface you avoid the harsh light burns on your subject's face.

                                      Recently, I was shooting at an exhibition where I was using my two speed lights in combination with two strobes and one modelling light. This accessory enabled me to mount my infra red receiver for the flash and the strobe in addition to my two speed lights.

                                      Also you can use it on a flat surface where it stands on its own or you can screw it on a light stand since it provides for that. The light stand screw at the bottom has a metallic coating, giving it much more endurance.

                                      It also holds the flash very firm that it cannot slide out. I have had incidences where my flash has fallen down by sliding out of the socket but this one holds very firmly. I recently also used it in a shoot inside a car for advertising, where there was definitely no space for light stands.

                                      Its quite compact and well build and seems that it can last for many years. It surpasses the one that came with my SB-910. This is a must have for photographers.

                                      Thanks to B & H for your efficiency in delivery and excellent customer service. You have become my most trusted camera equipment suppliers.

                                        Much less likely to strip the threads on this as opposed to the all plastic shoe that comes with the flash...

                                          This is the perfect adapter for attaching a speedlite to a tripod. There are times when you need less than a light stand or don't have one with you. This allows you to use your tripod as a light stand. It has two additional slots to allow you to attach a Pocket Wizard or similar device.

                                          Great price!

                                              It works great and costs little. Nice off camera stand for my remote flash! Makes flash mount on tripods as well.

                                                  The mount that came with my 580EXII cracked- its made very poorly. So I replaced it with this one. This shoe mount is WAY better. Stronger plastic, the threading is reinforced with metal (if you want to mount your flash to light stand) and it has options for mounting your flash in different positions. Love it.

                                                    I chose this stand because of the metal threads underneath the stand, enabling me to connect to a tripod without worrying about stripping the threads. The base is a little bigger in size than the one which came with my light so less likely to tip over, seems to handle the weight of the larger Speedlite, too. Works well .
