    How do you rate and item like this. You need it if you intend use a sony flash (HVLF--AM) on your A99. Loose the one they give you with it, then you'll be buying another. But there is a delay between the trigger and flash; so it's not flawless (oh well deal with it, right Sony). Sony is obviously so desperate to be accepted by Photography leaders that they adapted their camera to be use with other manufactures items. All while almost alienating their customers. The one plus to this is now I can use my HVLF58AM flashes with other manufacturers softbox setups.

        It works ... unlike some of the other reviewers are mentioning, I don't experience any wobbling when used with a flashlight.

          Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

          This product allows me to use my older flashes on my a7 camera. I can attach my 3600 HSD and configure it as a remote controlled by my new flash. I have not used it enough to determine how durable it is.

            It works perfectly and I am very happy with the product. Service was excellent and shipping was fast. I would definitely purchase other equipment from this company and would encourage anyone else to buy from them as well.

                    I bought this multi-interface hot show adaptor to use Minolta flash with Sony NEX-6. It works well but the flash seems wiggling a bit. That's why I give this 4 stars.

                      Comments about Sony Multi-Interface Shoe Adapter:

                      I just bought the Sony A7 and ordered the flash adapter for it. I was hesitant at first as I had read some of the previous reviews and people had complained that it comes loose and the flash falls off. Well I have used my HVL F56 flash on the adapter and had no problems. Perhaps the other users didn't have the adapter locked on tight enough. It has worked great for me.

                                          It's small and works fine with my Sony flash. It's so confusing which flash is dedicated that I bought the wrong one and thus this adapter.

                                              Allows use of an IISO flash on my A99. However this HVL-F58Am does not feel secure using this. I feel the flash is likely to fall of in use.

                                                    Able to use my legacy Sony/Minolta flashes with my NEX-6. Works well. Could seat a bit more securely.
