Product Highlights
  • Provides Three Additional Shoe Mounts
  • Connects via Shoe Mount or 1/4"-20 Mount
  • Built-In Backstops for Secure Mounting
  • Machined Aluminum Alloy Construction
  • Shoes Molded out of Same Piece

The Vello Triple Shoe V-Bracket (4.9" Wide) mounts onto a camera's accessory shoe in order to provide three additional accessory shoes for mounting lights, monitors, microphones, or other accessories. In addition to the shoe mount, a 1/4"-20 thread is also available for attaching the bracket to a tripod, rig, or other bracket featuring a 1/4"-20-threaded mount.

The bracket is constructed from rigid, yet lightweight single-piece aluminum alloy, and the mounting shoes are machined out of the same piece as the bracket, for additional strength. The accessory shoes also feature backstops for greater security when attaching accessories. The bottom shoe that attaches to the camera features a locking pin, which keeps the shoe in place and prevents the shoe from rotating during use.

This V-Bracket's width spans 4.9" cm and has a tiered design for mounting up to three additional accessories.
Machined Aluminum Alloy
The bracket is machined out of one single piece of aluminum, which provides greater strength to the three shoes
Accessory Shoe and 1/4"-20 Socket Mounts
The bracket can attach directly to a camera via the accessory shoe or, additionally, it features a 1/4"-20 socket for attaching to threaded mounts such as a tripod.
Locking Pin
The bottom shoe that mounts on to the camera features a locking pin, which prevents the bracket from rotating.
Mount Type 3x shoe mounts
1 x 1/4"-20 socket
Construction Aluminum Alloy
Dimensions 4.9 x 4.1 x 0.9" / 12.5 x 10.4 x 2.2 cm

      Have only used it a week, so can't determine durability of the bracket's knurled tightening ring to camera hot shoe, but it appears to be made of metal and well designed/made so hopefully there won't be any play in it over time. So far, it performs as advertised and exceeded my expectations in relation to strength and stability. It clamps to my Nikon D800E strongly, doesn't budge when loaded up and is relatively light for an all metal bracket. The backstop on each cold shoe (see product photo) is a great idea for extra reassurance. However, I put my bracket on the camera 'backwards' as I only have a very short xlr to mini jack lead for my mic, the mic needs to be on the low perch to reach the input on my Nikon (may get a little longer cable at some point). I didn't want a big cage set up for shooting DSLR video just yet, so this 4.9 " wide V-bracket was ideal for the few accessories I have (I may even think about the 6.5" model also so I can fit 2 LED-480 video lights securely). Currently, I load the bracket with a Sennheiser ME66/K6 shotgun mic with MZW 66-PRO windshield in a Rode SM3 hot shoe shock mount, a Metz Mecalight LED-480 and a smaller LED-160 on the centre cold shoe. It's all fairly compact and manageable even for hand holding the rig, though I mainly use a tripod for smooth video footage. I am a one man production unit so I've ordered a Fostex DC-R302 digital SD card field recorder to go under the D800E so I will have most of my gear very conveniently placed on my tripod in front of me (the recorder has excellent audio quality also which is a prerequisite for me). I have another 2 LED-480's I can site as required and can put the shotgun on a mic stand if needed using a longer xlr -xlr cable to my Fostex when it arrives. The only annoyance so far is that my Nikon ME-1 stereo mic doesn't fit in the centre cold shoe of the bracket as an option - it's foot is a little too thick. It fits in the other 2 shoes but not that one. Perhaps Vello should revisit this. The bracket has hardly been off the camera since I got it! Very happy with it. B & H were very prompt with their overseas shipping also.

      At first it seemed very sturdy and well made, but I noticed the edges were a bit sharp. I can see myself cutting/puncturing a finger if trying to remove an accessory in a hurry. Granted, it's an extruded piece of aluminum, but a bit of bead/sand blasting might have taken out the sharp edges. Also, the bottom foot is somewhat loose. It twists about 5 degrees in total, which may not sound like much, but I thought this had a more solid foot. I may have to put some JB Weld to make it stay put permanently in one position, then spray that section in black to match.

        The bracket does what it is designed to do, however the fittings are a little tight to start - hard to slide the attachments in

          Comments about Vello Triple Shoe V-Bracket (4.9" Wide):

          I used this on my Panasonic GH4 to mount a shotgun Mic, LED Light, and Tascam DR40. Because all of the weight is secured from one single shoe on the camera, the rig introduced bobble even when on a tripod.

          It was affordable and held what I needed securely, but I am upgrading to a camera cage to allow me to mount a lot of items without the single point of contact that introduces the bobble.

            I use the bracket to balance a camera light and a boom mic and it works really well. It installs easily and balances the two so I can hold the camera steady. Great product!

                Does as advertised for a reasonable price. The only thing I would adjust is the spread of the V. It will not accommodate 3 Nikon sb910's (Not that I need it too, just might as well since it comes so close), and I would expect the same is true for other higher end flashes from equivalent manufacturers.

                            Good useful expansion from one on-camera accessory shoe to three. On a Sony HDR-FX1, I can mount a video light, Sennheiser wireless receiver and shock-mount with shotgun mic. On a Sony NEX-EA50, with the shotgun mic using the camera's mic mount, that currently leaves an available accessory shoe. The offset and height allow the on-camera LED lighting to provide good coverage with little blockage from the camera-mounted mic.

                            Was running into a dual system video recording scenario with DSLR where I needed to fit a small light and my wireless lav receiver. Tried to make it happen with this gadget and it just ended up being too heavy, too bulky, and too cumbersome to operate. It's a good gadget but not for what I need.

                            Solidly built. Smaller than expected.

                              It features nice, solid construction. It's WAY smaller than I thought it would be. My Rode video mic is creating a shadow in front of my light.

                              MY error that I didn't accurately measure and clearly understand what I was buying.

                                Comments about Vello Triple Shoe V-Bracket (4.9" Wide):

                                I am very happy with the performance of the V-Bracket. Great addition to lighting setup for product shots and I've even used it in some special portrait work. On camera - on a light weight tripod (especially for lighting product shots) - easy to setup/breakdown and gets the job done. I like it just as it is - but - it would be great if the outside arms were "flexible" to adjust the spacing between the two. As is, I use 2 mounted onto each other for even more options! Love the product. Would suggest it to a friend.

                                    I love the v-bracket. It's super lightweight, allows me to fit an LED light, and shotgun mic with room to grow and feels super solid. Great purchase.

                                      Works fine on my D600, its just the right size. And the middle position gives you an extra too.

                                            it's metal, and the mounting bracket is secure!
                                            I use this on my gh3 and fit a wireless receiver and juicedlink on it!

                                            At first it seemed very sturdy and well made, but I noticed the edges were a bit sharp. I can see myself cutting/puncturing a finger if trying to remove an accessory in a hurry. Granted, it's an extruded piece of aluminum, but a bit of bead/sand blasting might have taken out the sharp edges. Also, the bottom foot is somewhat loose. It twists about 5 degrees in total, which may not sound like much, but I thought this had a more solid foot. I may have to put some JB Weld to make it stay put permanently in one position, then spray that section in black to match.
