    Elements Cold Shoe Adapter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would be ok if you could adjust rotation after tightened I bought this to put on my Sony FX-1 to attach a video light. Other than getting it to work with washers I can't think of anything great about it. I had to add 4 washers to get the correct rotation to stop with the correct alignment so my video light would point forward. There is no adjustment until it runs out of threads which by default on my camera was about 10 degrees off to the right lol. Nice cheap solution I suppose but would have appreciated knowing upfront it was a lottery chance to have it pointed correctly (or supplied me with black washers to adjust)..

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from isn't very adjustable Judging from the photo I thought I could set the cold shoe into position and turn the knob below, which is really cheap plastic , until it locks securely in the correct orientation. No matter how i alter the threads, It's always cockeyed. The paint is kind of rubbery, is it good. No. It's already scratched up from trying to get it to work correctly and being turned against the plastic washer so I can't really send it back. The cold shoe itself is of decent quality. god I wish there was a camera store where i could try before I buy

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works (after mod) with XF100 I bought this to hold a second wireless reciever on my XF100. The bolt that comes with it is a little long for the socket on the handle of the camera, and makes it impossible to get a snug fit as the bolt can twist at the socket and on the adapter itself. I trimmed the bolt with a hacksaw and now it works as I intended it to. I like that I can release a wireless with the small side mounted thumb wheel as opposed to the large bottom mounted wheel on my sennheiser receiver, much quicker and easier.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed in quality I bought this to use on my Wooden Camera Pocket cage and something as simple as attaching a cold shoe should only take a few seconds to screw in and forget about it. The build of this shoe makes an easy attachment impossible as the center screw is not set in the shoe so attaching the mount while using the locking ring to position the shoe leave the shoe head to spin freely until it is screwed all the way down to the locking ring which is always out of position. This is obviously a design flaw and should be addressed in future manufacturing and Ikan should take the $ hit and send everyone who has bought one of these a replacement. Because even for the low price of $ if it doesn't work it is useless. I do not recommend this product as is to anyone in it's current build.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great quality, but it won't face forward. I bought it to attach elements to the Cold Shoe Adapter. Works with any 1/4 20 female receiver screw hole. To be honest, it's well built, great quality, but... you just can't make it face forward as it's supposed to, it always faces aside, no matter how much you try you just can't make it face forward by itself when fully attached. Accessories like monitors or LED lights face to the wrong degree you need them. Seems you need some screw washers to make it face straight; I gave it 2 stars in the review because of it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Their are better This did not work as I thought. I tried screwing it in the top of my Blackmagic Pocket camera but could not get the cold shoe mount to face in the proper direction. Maybe you can figure it out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for a low price I simply needed this to attach my Rode Video Mic Pro to the top of my Sony HDR-FX1. I have had no issues with it, and it came at a great price.
    Date published: 2012-08-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Got this to connect one of my Elinchrom triggers to my Sekonic meter. Now I can triggr my fashes with the meter. Sekonic only has Pocketwizerd triggering inside. Screw this into the typod soket on the bottom of the meter & slid the Elinchrom skypot into the coldsheo. attach the sync cord and your done. works great when you have a spair trigger around. You don't have to take the one on your camera off to take a reading.
