This arrived a couple days ahead of schedule and is awesome. It is very compact and fits my camcorder perfectly. I wanted expand my vlogging to inside my car. The design allows me to mount the camera the light and shotgun mic at just about any angle, while keeping the setup compact. I am using with the wildly popular RAM mount suction system, which allows mounting to windshield or car passenger side window. It is light and strong. I am waiting for the mic and light. I will try to send pic once all is received.

I use it to hold a Canon Vixia video camera at the bottom of the arc, a Genray LED panel at the top of the arc, and the RODE Link wireless microphone receiver in the middle the arc. It is easy to adjust and holds well. Great value for the dollar.

Good bracket with support of two accessories

By Alex

I am using this bracket to attach microphone and light for my video camcorder. I really like the ability to attach more than one accessory. The shape is also good. I have subtracted 1 star because parts of the hot shoe is glued so I am not so sure about long term reliability. Also the screws do not hold the bottom two parts secure enough. With regular use, they get moved. There should be at least clickable lock or something at 90deg, 180deg, etc. Other than that, it is a good product for the price.

Does just what I needed it to do

Feels solid, easy to use. Slightly heavier than I expected, but not too heavy. Plenty of ways to adjust it so that you can get it set up just right. I like that the cold-shoe mount pieces have small rubber/plastic disks between the bracket itself and the metal C arm, which work well to keep them from slipping. It works great with both my small camera and my larger DSLR (which is a Sony alpha). I've used it both with and without a tripod, and it does just what I needed it to do.

An accessory that should be in every camera bag

By Nicholas
Rated 5 out of 5

Over the past couple of years, I’ve discovered that accessories are just as important as the camera they work with when it comes to photography and videography. In 2016, I decided to beef up my camera rig for shooting on-location video and I realized that I needed a shoe mount that would accommodate more than one accessory. I invested in a triple mount bracket that has served me well. The only issue with it is that it’s a bit awkward in its shape. I have used other multi-accessory brackets that are straight pieces and they all just seem to get in the way. You can imagine my excitement when I came across the C Bracket Shoe Mount from Ziv.  This one-of-a-kind mount makes it possible for you to add a light, microphone, monitor, or other accessories to a mirrorless camera or DSLR. As the name suggests, the bracket is is shaped like a “C” and it is designed to wrap around the lens of a camera so that your accessories really become an extension of the camera rig instead of an annoyance. The bracket attaches with a ¼”-20 camera screw and includes two position-adjusted cold shoe mounts. It will work with most DSLRs, compact camcorders, and mirrorless cameras. The Ziv mount can be operated from the right or left hand side.  So, how does it work? Well, the bracket attaches to the bottom of the camera via the ¼”-20 screw (included). You then have the option of attaching the entire rig to a tripod or monopod because there is a ¼”-20 screw hole in the bottom of the thumbscrew that is used to secure the mount to the camera. There are two cold shoe mounts that can be positioned anywhere on the arm. This makes it very easy to place your accessories where you need them for your shots. One of the coolest things about this shoe mount is that it’s just a ‘shoe’ mount and it doesn’t take up the hot shoe mount on the camera itself.  The Ziv Dual Shoe C Bracket is a remarkable accessory that I think should be in every camera bag. I tried it with two different sizes of DSLR -- a Canon 5D Mark IV and a Canon 70D -- and it worked perfectly with both. I found it very interesting that you can swivel the arm to either side of the camera body or move it so that it’s sitting directly next to the lens. I tried it several different ways and found that it wasn’t hindering camera operation at all. In doing some research I came across a review that stated this bracket was “too small to work with anything but a small point and shoot camera.” Given the fact that I tried it out with a full frame camera holding a 24-70mm lens, I would say that their opinion is a little flawed. Their review didn’t say what camera they tried to use it with, but I can say that I didn’t have any issues with the bracket at all. I received this product in exchange for my honest review

question

Hi, I would like to use it as external mount for my remote, so the flash still works. would this be ok to use with G16 mounted all together in a day trip tripod? Or do you have any other recommendation?
Asked by: Arvie O.
This bracket can be used to add more shoe mounts or you may use the Vello CB-510 bracket which would also sit between the camera and the tripod's quick release plate.

question

Do you recommend this bracket or theVello CB-510 to use with a flash and a remote? This is to be used for weddings. Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
It should be fine with a flash and remote. Just keep in mind this is meant to go over the lens not the camera. Also, if you need to move around handheld I do not recommend this, it is tedious to anchor the camera securely, and if you move around it might come undone, same with the flash brackets. It is fine with a tripod through.

Do the shoes move quickly to keep the flash and bounce the same between landscape and portrait shots?
Asked by: Neal
The shoes of the Ziv Dual Shoe C Bracket will adjust easily via the adjustments knobs and will easily adjust to another location. The speed of how quickly the shoes moves, will be determined on how fast the user moves.

question

Can I use this bracket to mount 1 microphone and 1 camcorder on a tripod such that the camcorder points straight ahead and the microphone points 40 degree away from the direction of the camcorder ?
Asked by: Thanh
This bracket will allow you to mount the camera and a mic on a tripod. The mount will also allow you to point the mic in a different direction. Not sure about 40 degrees, but it does allow you to change the direction of the mic.

question

Can this hold the weight of a speedlight or would it be flimsy? Also, I am using the Nissin Di700 speedlight, the shoe mount is very tight on these flashes, would it be possible for an employee to test and see if the cold shoe on this bracket would fit well with the Di700 speedlight? Thank you!
Asked by: Jason D.
Hi there Jason, It is strong enough to hold a speedlite but what you have to do is ensure that the shoes that you are using are all locked properly as it has been the only issue I have had with it as the shoes sometimes unlock themselves, especially from the bottom part. So, when I attach this bracket to either my Canon 70D or Sony a6300, I have an on-camera light, a rode microphone, and my speedlite. This ensures that at any moment if I need to switch back from videography to photography then I can. However, I prefer attaching my Canon speedlite to the shoe of the camera as the electrical components work perfectly for the Canon and with the Sony 6300 as the 6300 is pretty much compatible with almost anything and if not yet, soon with firmware updates. So, in a nutshell - yes, it will work but prepare also to know that your camera will be heavier with the more you attach. Or, if you attach your Nissin Speedlite on the bracket, it will greatly unbalance your camera handling as you and I both know that the speedlite should be locked to the shoe of the camera. To me that was a great investment because I do both photography and videography. However, how you utilize it, you'll simply have to think if this is an investment for you or not. I hope this helps.
