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??)

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.

Is this adapter compatible with the shoe on the EOS RP?

Unfortunately it is not compatible with the EOS RP as that camera does not have the Multi-Function Shoe.
