    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.

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

        The hot shoe is pretty good. I use it for my Zoom H1 attach as a good external mic to my camcorder and dslr.

        Stability of the shoe depend on what device you use. For example it is pretty stable on old Canon 300D, but not very stable on the new Canon 6D. It seems the shoe basement too thin for every equipment. But you can use it with understanding of such caveat.

                  This is very useful, but they should have separator between the screws so that they don't get stuck while unscrewing.

                        I used this to mount my Zoom H2N recorder onto a cage. It works really well, not too long or short for my use and fits perfectly on the cage. Its also pretty easy to remove off the cage as well for changing the SD card on the Zoom.

                                I used this product to attach my Iphone to the top of my DSLR hot shoe. I use it with Triggertrap.

                                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.

                                Works just like it should. Nothing special but resolved the issue I needed it for. Seems to be good quality.

                                    This fits my Canon DSLR perfectly.. I use it to attach my Zoom H2 digital audio recorder to it.
                                    The product is well made and feels very sturdy.

                                    This does the job. It allows me to mount my GoPro on top of my DSLR (when used in conjunction with the GoPro tripod mount).
