    I own a Sony F43AM flash unit I bought with my Sony A77 and it works fine. Then I bought a Sony A99, the F43AM will not work on that body unless you have this shoe adapter. I believe it will work with many older Sony flash units that have the older flash shoe design. When I bought my Sony DSC-HX50V pocket camera it came with the new flash shoe design. I love bounce flash, and the 50V flash cannot bounce, so now with the shoe adapter I can attach my F43AM flash to my HX50V via the shoe adapter and I can shoot beautiful bounce flash with my HX50V. I am sure Sony made the shoe mount switch for a good reason, I hope they don't change it again or else I will need another adapter. Good product and mounts securely.

    Allows new Sony multi-interface mount accessories to be fitted to auto-lock shoes. I am not sure how durable this will turn out to be and I mad not. Sure that the HVL-F60M would last long mounted on this.

          Comments about Sony Auto-Lock Shoe Adapter:

          Bought it because I wanted to use my newer sony flash F20M on SLT-A65. I had to wait for a while until it was in stock at BH. But BH was prompt in expediting the delivery and I got it much earlier that I though it is going to be.

          The unit works well with HVL-F20m on A65. Fits well and stays tight. The adapter converts the old sony's unique flash mount to the newer multi interface shoe. With multi interface, the shoe gets additional fine connections that I believe needs to be kept covered and protected against dust and moisture. Unfortunately, Sony does not provide a show cap with the adapter.

              I broke the foot on my expensive Sony Flash and could not afford that replacement. This works to allow an adaptive flash.

                  I use this with an A-55 SLT and a HVL-F43M flash. Slides into place on camera securely and the flash slides securely into the adapter; feels very solid.

                  Does the job exactly how I'd expect. It's not as nice as no adapter, but considering one is needed, it does the job.

                            Not a great deal one can say about this accessory. It's well made, fits snugly (with a lock/release mechanism) and permits use of standard hotshoe flash on NEX-7 camera body.

                                          Allows new Sony multi-interface mount accessories to be fitted to auto-lock shoes. I am not sure how durable this will turn out to be and I mad not. Sure that the HVL-F60M would last long mounted on this.

                                            Needed an attachment to use Quantum wireless remote on a Sony Nex7 and this works just fine. After market and other brand flashes also will fire using this adapter although, I don't use if for that. Simple but well made.
