With this device I can use the Metz flash that I had bought for my A350. For some reason, Sony decided to change to a different hot shoe sometime between the A350 and the A77 II. I've read some reviews that suggest this adapter fits loosely on the camera. I tried it and found that it fits securely, as does the Metz. It's important to tighten both the adapter and the flash by turning the wheels at the bottom of each. If there's any other problem, I couldn't find it.

Allows an older Sony flash to be used on a multi-interface hot shoe, found on many (perhaps all) Sony mirrorless cameras. In my opinion, the price is not reasonable for the product, but, at the present time, it's this part or nothing, as far as I have been able to determine.

      Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

      I used to shoot with an a700 which has the original Sony style hot shoe. My flash unit, my studio flash trigger and some other equipment I use are all fitted for the original Sony style hot shoe. This adapter slides into my a77 mark II hot shoe and converts it to the original style which allows me to use all on my equipment I used with the a700. NICE!

      Works on Sony alpha a7r for Metz 24AF-1

            I use this on a Sony alpha a7r with Nikon and Leica manual focus lenses (via those lens adapters) to mount a Metz 24AF-1 flash.

            Flash works as expected in TTL mode; no exposure issues on Fill or Slow-sync mode settings on the camera.

            The flash sits very solidly on the camera despite the extra height of the flash adapter.

              Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

              I own a Sony Nex 7 and had purchased a Metz 36 AF 5 flash for my Nex 7. I converted the Nex 7 for infrared photography and purchased a Sony A6000 for regular photography. Of course, Sony had changed the flash foot between the Nex 7 and the A6000. I therefore purchased the Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter to enable use of my Metz flash on the A6000. Not only does this adapter enable me to use my Metz flash on my A6000, but differently than some reviewers have stated, the Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter provides an extremely stable interface between the flash and the camera. The only negative I can think of is that because of the need for the adapter on an extremely small and compact camera, the combination with flash becomes somewhat unwieldy

                  Its hard to say a lot about a hot shoe adapter. This adapter adapts well at both ends.

                  Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

                  I've not tried all the possible combinations - but so far very tight flash-camera connection & effortless translation from old Sony-unique flash mount to the multi-use connection. My only gripe is with the 3d party flash not offering a modification to match the multi-use interface. I've a bit too much invested in the flash setup to buy new to match the Sony multi-use connection. Hence the mandatory do-hickey from Sony. But the Sony do-hickey is measurably better than 3d-party do-hickeys. Tkx to B&H for the help!!

                      I just bought a new A77II and found out my old external flash won't fit. Luckily Sony makes an adapter. It holds the flash tight on the camera and the flash woks flawlessly. Saved me several hundred over buying a new external flash.

                            This does the job - lets me use my older flash unit on my newer Sony camera. If you tighten it and check it occasionally, there is no problem with it falling off, as some reviews had said. It does loosen up a little, so checking is necessary periodically. If not for that, would give it 5 stars.

                                        Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

                                        Allows an older Sony flash to be used on a multi-interface hot shoe, found on many (perhaps all) Sony mirrorless cameras. In my opinion, the price is not reasonable for the product, but, at the present time, it's this part or nothing, as far as I have been able to determine.

                                              works perfectly to adapt native Sony flash (i have the older HVL-F42AM) to the new "multi-interface hotshoe" on the a6000 (or nex6 i assume) supports HSS when the flash is not being pointed upward to bounce. Locks strongly onto the camera so flash doesn't feel loose or link it will fall.

                                              It works but you have to be very carefull or you'll lose your flash...Sony needs to make an off camera flash cord so we don't have to piece meal a solution.

                                                I bought this to use my old flashes remotely with a trigger, so it works as excepted with no issues. I use the remote flashes in manual. Nice to get use out of old Minolta units.
