Will this fit the Canon HfG20?
Asked by: Joseph
No, the Canon AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter (B&H# CAOCSAADE1) is designed for Canon cameras using Canon's new (as of 2021) Multi-Function Shoe. Currently (as of November 2021), that Multi-Function Shoe is only present on the Canon EOS R3 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) (B&H# CAER3) and the Canon XF605 UHD 4K HDR Pro Camcorder (B&H# CAXF605).

Would this allow me to use the new DM-E1D microphone intended for the R3 on my R5 as though it was an R3? (In other words, it would appear in my R5 menu??)
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the Canon AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter (B&H# CAOCSAADE1) is for adapting the soon-to-be-released (in October 2021) Canon Multi-Function Shoe which will be found on the Canon EOS R3 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) (B&H# CAER3) and the Canon XF605 UHD 4K HDR Pro Camcorder (B&H# CAXF605). The purpose of the Canon AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter is to allow that new Multi-Function Shoe on the aforementioned cameras to be used with legacy accessories (e.g. the 600 EX II Speedlite) while maintaining the weather resistance of the Multi-Function hot shoe on the EOS R3 and XF605. Your Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) (B&H# CAER5) has the legacy type of hot shoe, so it's not designed to take the Canon AD-E1 Multi-Function Shoe Adapter. Even if the adapter were fitted to the legacy hot shoe of an EOS R5 or R6, for example, new accessories requiring the new Multi-Function hot shoe will not function as intended in it.

Does this item merely add weather resistance or is it essential for the electrical connectivity of legacy accessories?
Asked by: Arthur
This item does both actually. It's essential for legacy accessories such as speedlights and adds the weather resistance.
