    Pearstone CSA-II reviews

    CSA-II Universal Shoe Adapter for Canon Camcorders with Mini Advanced Shoe is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 71.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job, could fit better. It does the job it is designed to do, and I much prefer this to having to mount my Rode mic on a separate handle. However, being designed for the Canon hot shoe, it could fit a little better and not totally rely on the tension of the screw to hold it in place. Also, as others have mentioned, on my HF G10 it extends over the zoom control. I would recommend this as an alternative to using a separate mount.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but Essential After going through the transitions of film to digital still and adding video to my process in forensic productions, I have found that it is often the little things that can be essential. I now own 3 Canon Vixia HD Video cameras (not trying to be (Spielberg) for hand held on location evidence scenes, 2 shot productions documentation, and 3 camera interviews. The need to place various accessories on the camera, lined up with the lens, is often a plus. This little adapter is quite solid when tightened down on the mini shoes of the HF G10 and HF S100 cameras, and also elevates the accessory (adjustable LED light, mic, etc) to make using the zoom lever an easy process.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed to Mount non-Canon Mics I use this to mount an Azden shotgun mic on top of my Canon Vixia HF G20 video camera. I am planning on getting an even better shotgun mic in the near future. Unfortunately, Canon has their own proprietary mount for using Canon accessories to the camera. This shoe adapter is an absolute necessity if you want to mount a better quality shotgun mic to the camera. You could spend twice as much on the camera to get a professional or pro-sumer model that has a standard shoe mount, or a handle with microphone inputs, or you could buy this useful, inexpensive little gadget. You could mount a small LED video light on it instead of a microphone, but I use it primarily for a shotgun mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoe Adapter I used it to attach a Rode video mic to a Canon Vixia HFM40. It works perfectly!
    Date published: 2011-09-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great only to hold a mic or light This adapter does NOT function as a mini-shoe. It has no electrical transfer so you cannot use a mic with this adapter as you would with the mini-shoe. I had a microphone that simply had to be inserted into my older Canon camcorder. The shoe connected immediately to the mic and everything was fine... until Canon put a new shoe on it's new videocameras which did not fit the microphone. I thought this adapter would allow me to use the mic, but it did not. It's simply a plastic holder. A good one, but it does not connect to the mini-shoe electrical connection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Shoe Adapter Originally I purchased a Satechi MSA-1 for my Canon HF G10, only to find that when I fastened my Rode Videomic to it that it wobbled back and forth, which produced an audible clunking noise in my recordings.This adapter, on the other hand, is very solidly built and fastens on nice and tight to the hot shoe and does not budge at all once fully secured.My one and only real (minor) complaint would be that it slightly blocks part of the zoom rocker on my HF G10 (which is very close to the hot shoe), but other than that, an excellent and inexpensive adapter.
    Date published: 2012-09-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Design, Shaky Execution The self-contained locking screw is easier to get to than most of this type of gear. And the product meets a definite need that Canon has created in their zeal to be over-proprietary. But the unit tends to be wobbly, due in part to its high profile, and due in part to the plastic used on the lug that fits into a Canon. So, its a useful product --- that could have been executed a little better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and Solid I have 3 Canon Vixia HD cameras (2 HF S100s/1 HF G10) for forensic work: I use 1 camera for hand held, on location evidence shooting, a 2 camera set up for documenting production process, and 3 cameras for interviews. This Adapter is perfect for using an adjustable LED light over the lens plane, using a shoe mount level, and for various microphones. I've used others and it's the best so far. Besides being solid, its height gives me easy access to the zoom bar. After all, it can be these little items that make or break the process.
