question

Is the hot shoe mount detachable on this item? Can I also use this as a standard 492 Ball head?
Asked by: Anonymous
The cold shoe does not come off the ball head. And it supports no more than 4.4 lbs total.

question

are there threads on the bottom of the hot shoe so it can be attached to something using a screw instead of the hot shoe? Can't tell as there are no pics of the bottom of the hot shoe itself
Asked by: Anonymous
The shoe mount can be removed. There is a screw that holds the shoe on that can be removed. Then the mount can be screwed onto a light stand or other devices. I believe it's a 1/4' thread.

After tightening mine on top of my camera, after a while the bottom ring tends to loosen itself. Anyone else have this issue? I've nearly had my shogun slide off because of this issue.
Asked by: STEFAN
The problem is with the bottom ring, the silver looking ring. That's the ring that becomes loose.

question

I have the bmmcc and it only has a 1/4 input, not a hot shoe. Will I need a hot shoe adapter with this manfrotto product?
Asked by: marc
They have a version with no hot shoe. But, this one DOES have the shoe mount. You can see it in the 2nd photo for this product, see if that's what you're looking for. Hope that helps.

Will this fit the hot shoe of a nikon d700?

I purchased it for mounting a Ninja 2 on a D610 and D7100. Which it does extremely well. I also happen to own a D700, and confirmed that it fits without any issues.

question

Will this ball head work mounted on the hot shoe of the Sony A7s? No shorts ? Want to connect the Sony A7s to the Atomos Shogun.
Asked by: Charles
I have used it on my X70 and X180 which have an MIS, so far, no problems, but I would be afraid the lack of deep slot in would make the physical connection a bit haphazard and delicate.

question

Can I use this ball head with a platypod ultra and a mirrorless camera?
Asked by: Julie G.
I use it with my Sony a7 iii and it works great it will give you angles you need but not much on height but when it locks its best out there and very good build and it should work with your base adapter
