    I plan to use this for Fireworks video while doing bulb-mode photography of the Fireworks. This adapter fits my little HD video camera, and mounts it directly to the top of my DSLR. One I get things lined up, I can take stills while recording video. Comes in handy for when you need long exposures while capturing video.

    It is solid, and the camera will likely break before this adapter does.

    I needed an adapter to connect my TTL cable, which lacks a shoe plate, with my speedlight bracket, which can only connect to a shoe plate. It's fine for a cheap solution, though even with the top nut tightened to clamp the TTL cable-mounted speedlight into place, it's still possible for them to turn and unscrew slightly, letting them turn freely on top of the screw, so it has to be handled a little carefully to keep the speedlight securely mounted and facing the right direction.

          Solid

          By Stefan

          from Minnesota

          Comments about Revo Hot Shoe to 1/4"-20 Male Post Adapter:

          Not much to say, it's basically a screw with a hot/cold shoe compatible head. It rose my mic about an inch from the hotshoe on my camera. It's solid and hasn't stripped. Worth the price over @ models for the peace of mind.

                      I use this adapter to mount a Sony digital recorder to the top of my Sony PD170.

                      It holds the recorder securely to the camera.

                        This Hot shoe has done what all other ht shoe I have used in the past could not do which is stay tight so my 360 LED light will not spin or fall off like it was doing before. And super fast shipping. B&H are #1 for good reason.

                                      Solid, simple and it works. I've seen some of these go for $20+ and I don't know why. This guy is a great deal.
