General Brand SF947 reviews

Flash Accessory Shoe with Tripod Socket is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well, it's cheap.... $. The main weakness is the metal bracket is screwed to a block of plastic, and the screws wiggle in that block, so a mounted flash is held relatively securely to the metal plate, but the whole construction wobbles.For my own use, I'm unscrewing the metal plate from the plastic block and bolting it to something else, so that's only a minor drawback. So the bottom line is that yes, I'd recommend this to a friend but only to specific friends for specific reasons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk This shoes was a piece of junk. The plastic 1/4-20 threads got stripped the second time I screwed it onto my tripod. I have been meaning to send it back but really do not want to waste the time. I want to tell everyone to never purchase the piece of junk ever. I am getting a second Nikon AS-19 Speedlight Stand instead ( now that they are in stock). These work great for just a little more money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bad decision on my part I thought this simple flash shoe accessory with the 1/4-20 thread on the bottom would be the simplest solution to mount my Nikon Speedlight onto a tripod for use with a PC sync cord. Nope! The non-insulated metal pan apparently shorts out the trigger circuit, so the flash wouldn't work when using this accessory. Adding insult to injury, the accessory is so flimsy that my Speedlight promptly fell off and crashed to the floor, damaging the plastic jam nut. Save your pennys and buy a better one with a stronger mount and a flash circuit built in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from inexpensive and built that way fills the bill but is pretty loose - my flash fell off the lightstand more than once with this adapter. hard to tighten the flash down tight enough to be secure

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's a lightweight I use the shoe to mount 2 Vivitar 283's or 285's on a single bar. The plastic piece is fine and strong enough. The metal shoe is not heavy enough.
Date published: 2008-05-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A light-duty solution. This is a quite light-duty item, but is what I expected and suited my intended use (adding a cold-shoe to a toy plastic camera to hold a small shoe-mount exposure meter) adequately. The plastic base is hollow, except for a bar of plastic through the center to accommodate the tripod thread (just plastic, no metal insert) and the two attaching screws for the metal shoe. One reviewer said the screws were falling out of his sample, but if the one I received is any indication, the Chinese have discovered LocTite. The shoe itself is rather light in construction, with no tension adjustment (if your flash unit has a screw-down safety wheel this is no problem), and I definitely would NOT entrust a heavy, expensive flash unit to it. I would recommend this item only for a non-stressful, occasional-use situation, such as I had in mind.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy Construction The concept is good: a raised accessory shoe. But the 1/4 threads are made of plastic and after a few uses, they'll be stripped. The metal cold-shoe itself is well built, but it's not securely screwed into the plastic and it wobbles a little. The price is right, the construction poor.
Date published: 2011-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I needed Its simple, and it does exactly what is asked of it. I actually bought this piece for the metal part to rig it onto an old camera for flash support. Welded it on, works great. It was useful for my project.
