Kaiser 201301 overview

  • 1Description

Put any shoe-mount flash in this Kaiser PC to Hot Shoe Adapter and that flash will fire when the 11.5" (29.2 cm) PC male cord attached to the body of the device is inserted into a camera's PC socket and you activate the camera's shutter.

The bottom of this device has both a flash shoe track, so that it can be inserted in other flash shoes, and a 1/4"-20 threaded tripod socket, so that it could be placed upon a tripod, table top tripod, clamp or any other device with a 1/4"-20 threaded screw.

Kaiser 201301 reviews

PC to Hot Shoe Adapter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best made hot shoe adapter I've used the other brand that is a few dollars less and easier to find. That has done well except for one time when the housing broke open at the seam or join line. The Kaiser has 3 screws that join both halves. The other brand has 2 screws that only join the metal shoe to the top half of the housing. The Kaiser has a heftier design that exudes quality, strength and reliability. The threaded hole on the bottom side is also deeper. There's not much to say about the PC cord and connector. It's good and it don't look flimsy. Paying more for the Kaiser may lower your funds, but what you get out it is negligible in the long run where you need it. This is one valuable hot shoe that will be with me a good long while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as advertised I am using this adapter to mount a sensor for a Sunpak Auto 611 on a Mamiya TLR so that I can utilize the Automatic Exposure feature of the flash. The adapter appears to be of solid construction and easily inserted into the cold shoe. The notch in the forward part of the adapter accomodated the guide pin on the camera shoe mount. Functioned perfectly. Price reasonable. Durability is to be seen. I will not be mounting a heavy shoe mounted flash on this unit to test strength but construction looks and feels solid. I am very satisfied with this purchase.I bought another brand locally at a similar price and found it flimsy and difficult to mount on and remove from the camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I use this in order to connect my old Quantum Radio Slave II receiver to my Vivitar 285HV flash (for strobist purposes). I read the reviews of the cheaper PC-to-Hot-shoe adapters and they were negative, so I bought this one. It does the job..although the plastic still seems pretty cheap. It doesn't have a locking system on it, but it does have a screw mount at the bottom of it for a light stand. The PC jack is actually a very tight fit onto my Quantum receiver unit..it barely fits. But it does work well. I don't trust it enough to use it without any stabilization, so I also bought some gaffer tape to stabilize it even more when the flash is attached. I am confident in its electronics, though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thank God for Duct Tape I own a 1D Mk. II and a 580ex II and bought this adapter because I was having problems with my hotshoe and didn't have time to send my equipment in to be repaired b\c of a shoot, so I got this as a temp. fix. Unfortunately, the cord's connection to my camera body were loose as well as the connection to my camera's hotshoe (especially with the weight of the flash). The only solution was duct tape. Also, the cord is so short, I could only use this with my flash mounted on the camera, leaving me with a very limited control over my light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with Kaiser PC adaptor Need this to connect a flash that does not have a pc socket (Leica sf24) to a pc socket on a camera that does not have a hot shoe. Like my Leica M3 Works great, but the routing of the cable is a bit fiddly to make sure it does intrude into the eyepiece. Not a fault of the adapter, as it meant to be used off camera, not on a cameras's cold shoe. But, this is as good as it gets for a camera with a cold shoe and pc socket, so recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and Durable Product I use these to fire remote Canon 550ex's with Quantum Radio Slaves (since the 550's don't have a pc connection built in). I've tried other brands, but they don't fit well with the Canon flashes. No complaints of any kind on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket! Use Strobist style with my Canon 580EX Flash heads and they fit like a glove. Nice fitting PC to Socket connection to radio triggers. The PC to PC cord is longer than others at around 15cm and works well for a quick set up with my Lastolite Ezy Box softbox. German made and have served me well over the last 2 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with Leicas I didn't buy my Kaiser adapter from B&H (sorry!) but if the model they are selling is the same as mine--and I don't see why it wouldn't be--it has another useful feature that isn't shown in the photograph. On the front of the base of the adapter there is a small notch cut out. The pre-hot shoe Leicas have a little post which sticks up in the front of the cold shoe which slides neatly into this notch. The PC-hot shoe adapters I have seen from some other manufacturers lack this cut out, and so can't slide fully into the shoe like the Kaiser can. So this adapter will convert your M3 and some other Leicas (if you have the proper adapter for your M2 or M3--they need a special attachment to convert their proprietary socket to a standard PC socket) into a camera with a proper hot shoe. Besides that, the Kaiser does seem to be much better built than similar adapters I have used by other manufacturers, which tend to fail under the slightest stress. This version might be a bit more expensive--but I think it's worth the few extra dollars for the higher quality.
