Product Highlights
  • Side Bracket with Two Cold Shoes
  • Attaches to Bottom of Camera
  • Mounts Tripods and Other Gear
  • Silicon Rubber Grip
  • Compatible with Most Camcorders & DSLRs

The Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket with Silicon Rubber Grip is a side bracket that attaches to the bottom of your camera and provides two cold shoes, one on top and one on the side, for attaching lights and other accessories. An included dual-purpose thumbscrew enables mounting the bracket along with a camera onto a tripod, fluid head, ball head or other gear. The thumbscrew features a 1/4" stud on top and a 1/4" female thread underneath. A silicon rubber grip will serve as an effective handle when you use this bracket solely with a camera, and as a pan handle when you mount it on a tripod.

The two shoe mounts will let you light your subjects from the side and will also free up your camera's shoe mount. The bracket is 4.5" wide, 5" in height, and is compatible with most camcorders and DSLRs. The thumbscrew is adjustable 2.5" along the width.

Note! A TTL cord is strongly recommended when using a flash combined with a DSLR. The bracket might not sufficiently support a typical hot shoe flash attached directly.

        Comments about Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket with Silicon Rubber Grip:

        I bought this product because the shoe on the top of my Sony Handycam is sunk down into the camera. This is a way for Sony to get you to buy their accessories. However, I bought a SHURE shotgun microphone because it is better than anything Sony makes, so I needed to find a way to mount the mic. This attaches to the bottom of the camera easily and still allows you to mount it on a tripod/stand. It has two shoes for different placements or double accessories. The only thing that is to be desired is that the ergonomics of the handle are not great. I have big hands and this limits the space you can hold the actual camera, so I'm stuck using the bracket grip.

          I have a small, but still excellent Canon video camera that had one drawback. Its microphones were about useless in doing what I do..that is interviews. I needed a means of mounting my good video mic (Rode) to my camera. This bracket is perfect. It points a good mic at my subject while giving me another handhold on the camera. I could not have asked for a better device! Thanks Vello and B&H!

          good product, not for me

          Comments about Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket with Silicon Rubber Grip:

          The product itself seems great. Solid and well constructed. I just realized after a little testing that I'm not a fan of mounting everything directly atop a DSLR. It all ends up too unbalanced and unwieldy, and this also means a smaller surface area to attach to a tripod (just the area of the bottom knob rather than the much larger area of the bottom of the camera), so I sent it back. However, that's just my personal preference, and what I saw of the product is that it's well made. it's got multiple mounting options and a nice rubber grip that can help stabilize handheld shots. If that's your thing, this seems like a good way to get it done.

            This bracket gives you the flexibility to have your on camera light, wireless mount, and shotgun mic. It' also provides a nice handle to carry around your rig. Just don't tighten the screws so tight that you strip the screws.

                I selected this bracket because reviews of similar brackets by other manufacturers often complained they were flimsy and of shoddy construction. This one seems sturdy. I have only used it once so far, but it seems well-made and has worked well for my intended purpose.

                      This is exactly the product that I was wanting. I needed something to hold my mic, my camera and mount on a tripod, all at the same time. This did it. I have used it once filming, but didn't get much footage. It is a quality build that I think will last as long as I have my current camera and then I my mount my GoPro on it once I upgrade video camera. Thanks B&H for carrying quality products.

If you need more space between the camera and your face this is the answer. Light weight ad yet very strong. I told my wife it will last a life time! Thanks, Irvin

                          I teach a high school Video Production class, and we use Sony video cameras. I bought the Azden shotgun microphone, and needed this bracket to attach the mike to the cameras. It takes some doing (hence the four star rating), but it will successfully attach the bracket to a tripod and the camera. Again, the one star under a perfect rating is because it can be a little confusing to attach all three parts together (bracket, mike, and tripod), but it does attach everything securely.

                            Comments about Vello CB-510 Dual Shoe Bracket with Silicon Rubber Grip:

                            I use this product to hold a LED video light. I use the LED to provide extra light for a better focus in dark venues and this bracket does the trick. It is under 20.00 so it is a real bargain. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for my other camera after using it while shooting events.

                              Perfect accesory for the small video camera I have. Without this simple device I would have a great deal of trouble taking videos.

                                  Takes the weight of the light and microphone off the camera...and the rubber grip provides for add stability.

                                    I got this to hang a light and mic off a little video camera and it does the job just fine... and the price is right
