Vello CB-485 overview

  • 1Description

The Vello V-Rig 6.5" Triple Shoe Bracket mounts onto a camera's accessory shoe in order to provide three additional accessory shoes for mounting lights, monitors, microphones, or other accessories. The entire bracket, including shoe mounts, is machined from a single piece of aluminum alloy for durability and strength. Also, in addition to the shoe mount, a 1/4"-20 thread is available for attaching the bracket to a tripod, rig, or another bracket featuring a 1/4"-20-threaded stud.

The accessory shoes each feature backstops for greater security when attaching accessories. The bottom shoe that attaches to the camera features a locking pin which keeps it in place and prevents the shoe from rotating during use.

6.5"-Wide Bracket
This V-Bracket's width spans 6.5" and has a tiered design for mounting up to three additional accessories. The wider expanse of the 6.5" bracket allows for the attachment of larger monitors and other accessories.
Machined Aluminum Alloy
The bracket is machined out of a single piece of aluminum alloy, which provides greater strength to the three shoes.
Accessory Shoe and 1/4"-20 Socket Mounts
The bracket can attach directly to a camera via the accessory shoe or, additionally, it features a 1/4"-20 socket for attaching to threaded mounts such as a tripod.
Locking Pin
The bottom shoe that mounts on to the camera features a locking pin, which prevents the bracket from rotating.

    Vello CB-485 reviews

    V-Rig 6.5" Triple Shoe Bracket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started to fall apart after one season of weddings. It's possible that I got a defective one and that they're not all this bad. I can only comment on my experience. I bought this V-Rig to put a light on top of my Sony FS5. I needed something that would place a camera light well above my shotgun mic. About 6 months into my first season using the V-Rig something inside it became loose and now there is a permanent amount of play in it so that the V-Rig/camera light swings back and forth from Left to Right about 1/4 of an inch all the time. This is terrible for me because you can see the light moving as it's reflecting of the subject's face. I ordered a new one from B&H and hope that it's more dependable this time around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got Audio Issues? Get this Bracket If you're running a camera light and multiple audio sources into your DSLR camera, you need this bracket. It's lightweight, transports well, and literally takes 13 seconds to set up - open package, slide onto rig, tighten the bolt and you're done. Cheap, effectively, nice accessory for any DSLR video folks out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent solution for a One Man Band Every once in a while, I'm asked to do everything myself on a shoot. It happens rarely (thankfully), but when it does, the chance for something to go wrong or be forgotten is higher. Interviewing a subject with my Canon 7D, recording double-system sound AND having to use a camera light is a challenge, but I've found that consolidating all of the gear in one place makes shooting much more efficient. Having to do all of this while traveling is what brought me to try this bracket. I can mount a light, a recorder and a monitor on my camera using this lightweight, extremely well-designed product. I can toss this small bracket in my carry-on luggage and don't need stands or an additional tripod. I used it on a shoot in Rome last week, interviewing subjects by myself. It made my life much easier, and kept the workflow moving along. I love this bracket for its high-quality materials, light weight, and excellent design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got the smaller one, but it wasn't big enough I had ordered and am keeping the smaller version of this, but for shooting video, I needed this larger one. I wish that the two sides were closer in height, but it works. On the high side, I put my Video Assist. In the middle I put a shotgun mic. On the short side I put a Zoom H6. Worked well. I might switch the Video Assist and H6 next time, but we'll see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, a bit tall 5 stars for what it is. It is well made and does what it was made for. For my own usage, I wish they had a unit that basically duplicated the right arm on the left - wide, but short. My devices don't need the height, but they do need the width that this unit provides. The 5 inch wasn't wide enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged support! This is a fairly large bracket, providing enough width for a video monitor on my D4s along with a microphone. It provides three brackets. Clearance can be a bit tight, but that's where the multi-function ball heads come into play.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job, inexpensive Does the job, inexpensive, used it few times before returning it, not because of the bracket it self but my lenses are too loud for using a camera mounted external mic, I was picking up noise from the auto-focus motors.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works better as a dual and not triple Not sure the purpose of the middle slot as I can't attach anything to it with the other two slots being used.
