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.

Revo has come up with a dandy design at a very agreeable price point. The metal construction is smooth and the two adjusters thread on the stud like butter in Satan's mouth. The only issue I had was that the stud is too long (which should never be an issue in other aspects of life).

As a result, the peripheral attatched to the top of the adapter can bend the stud if it's too heavy. I use this to support a monitor atop my 5D Mark III and there's about 3/4" of stud just holding everything up. There needs to be a longer nut of some sort to support the stud between the two adjusters. Now things are just getting dirty.

I would recommend shopping around for a more stable option.

Absolutely Great

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

This mount is really great. I've used this to mount my Neewer light, and GoPro. Very simple, although the locking disk were a little bit tight the first time. That really doesn't matter though. It works great!

    Allows attachment of bracket that holds mini tablet or smartphone. Which with a downloaded app allows you to use your camera as a bigger monitor.

        I purchased this to mount my Zoom H6 to my Nikon D90. I chose it over the Zoom HS-1 due to a number of reviews claiming interface problems with Nikons, and this was half the price anyway. The fit to both units is perfect, the knurled disks act as jam nuts to allow good alignment with the sound source and a snug fit by hand-tightening. It fits well in the H6 case.

                    For the price, this can't be beat. I needed a shoe adpater to mount my Gossen DigiSiz meter to a few of my cameras that have no meter. The two knurled knobs can be hard to tighten when right next to each other but hold completely securely. Whether it's on an SLR, TLR, or rangefinder, this works perfectly.

                          I use this product as a cold shoe for my Pocketwizard FlexTT5 transceivers. The Pocketwizard Hotshot break easily when light stands are knocked over. After replacing the hot shoe (3 times @ $20 ea.) I decided to try this as an alternative. Works great for those windy days.

                          The Good:
                          - Perfect cold shoe with a nice fit
                          - the locking disc are extremely helpful keeping the strobe/transceiver connected to the nightstand or bracket.

                          The No So Good:
                          - The screw post is a bit long, preventing me from keeping this attached when using my PocketWizard on camera (it interferes with the camera body buttons)

                                As other reviewers have noted, do not use this tiny accessory for any seriously load bearing task. But other than that one (hopefully obvious) caveat, this is a great, versatile accessory to keep in one's bag. Specifically, I was finding situations where I would have liked to have mounted my small ZOOM audio recorder to the top of a camera being used to shoot video. This makes that attachment a piece of cake.
