Vello HSA-CSC overview

Vello's Hot Shoe Adapter - Converts Sony/Minolta Hot Shoe to Standard Hot Shoe + PC Socket allows you to use standard hot shoe mount flashes (or other accessories) on cameras using the Sony/Minolta type hot shoe (not for newer Sony MIS type shoe). Because some Sony cameras use a proprietary hot shoe, standard hot shoe accessories can't be used on them - until now.

In addition, this adapter allows you to add a PC connection to any camera or flash that does not come with a built-in PC sync connection, while still retaining the existing hot shoe functionality (manual mode only, non-TTL).

This adapter does not support TTL flash operation.
This adapter does not fit Sony MIS (Multi-Interface Shoe) type cameras
This adapter does not provide high-voltage sync protection, and is not recommended for use with flash units that have a trigger voltage of more than 6V.

Converts Sony hot shoe to standard hot shoe
Adds PC socket to cameras or flash that don't have one built in

    Hot Shoe Adapter - Converts Sony/Minolta Hot Shoe to Standard Hot Shoe + PC Socket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Works as advertised. light weight - Gives us the ability to use external flash - I have tried both Nikon and Canon and Bower flash in manual mode and they all worked fine. So this does not give you TTL - you need to get a Sony compatible flash for that. But with some practise most of us don't use TTL anyway - this adds a little bith of height with the none Sony flashes but not much to worry about - maybe later they will make a similar unit that is a bit thinner - but a great price and with advertised functionality it is a must have for us with NEX body's - that is to say those that do have other flashes and do not need TTL -

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! After ordering the wrong shoe adapter for my Sony A55, I was happy to receive the correct one. The return on the one I ordered and the shipment one the new one was made quick and easy with the help of B&H customer service and ordering. They researched the correct shoe adapter for my camera and the rest was a breeze. Adapter works as it should, and all is well. Thanks

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I needed This takes standard hot shoe flashes and adapts them to the older proprietary Sony/Minolta hot shoe. NOT the newer Sony multi-interface shoe like I needed. I returned it because the description wasn't clear. I didn't even know there was an older style of hot shoe. The new multi-interface shoe works with standard hot shoes, but it's not a secure or consistent connection. My pocketwizards work most of the time, and a flash attached directly hangs off the back a slight bit. I'm sure it works like it's supposed to, but I couldn't tell you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best alternative from other 3rd party's Unless you go for the Sony expensive branded adapter, this is your next best thing. I've already tried 2 other adapters and they all snapped off after a few mounts and dismounts from my NEX-7. This is the only durable one that's lasted after a month use. I've used it on my NEX-7 with a Pocketwizard as well as a ETTL Canon cord and they both work as they should (minus the TTL portion, all manual flash of course). There is that one slight problem with such a snug fit on to the NEX-7 that if not mounted all the way on, it does not get a connection to fire the flash off. A simple dismount and remount will solve that. No biggie. Other than that, it works great and as expected. Off camera flash on a NEX-7 .. what more can you ask for?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, honest product Got this adapter to work with my Sony A350 & A55 to use with a studio set up. For the price of the product and the recommendation from the B&H rep I couldn't turn it down. Been using it for the past few weeks and have had nothing but success. It is easy to take on and off the camera so you can easliy switch flashes. The only issue I have had is that it makes it a bit hard to get a good solid connection with my eyes and the eye piece. But it is easy to work around. I would highly recommend to other Sony users.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thank goodness for converters Thanks to Sony's proprietary hotshoe, I had to buy this little gem. It's well built, but doesn't like plastic mounts. Not sure if this is a universal issue with hot shoes, but when I attach my shotgun mic that has a plastic shoe, its difficult to squeeze into the metal on the hot shoe. Over all I'm glad this is available and happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adaptor. I have a Sony alpha 100 camera and can use my old Minolta flash with my camera rather that purchase a $200+ Sony Flash. I also use this with a Bolt light ring too. this works great and has allowed me to save money for additional products down the road from B+H photo. There are no drawback to this adaptor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Unfortunately this is a must have item if you're enjoying or joining the ranks of mirror-less NEX lines. Do I have to buy this adapter? Yes... this brand? no. I do trust Vello. I love problem solving and they take a lot of the problem out so you can get back to shooting asap.. Strobes. Pocket Wizards. Sony NEX-7. Nope..not without this. So..I will say I love this item. Without it I'm an angry person. With it..i'm still angry. But at least I can use strobes.
