The Hot Shoe Extension by Rycote makes it possible to attach multiple devices such as lights and microphones to a single hot shoe on your still or video camera. With its ability to rotate 360° you can get creative with flash or lighting by reflecting it off any wall or ceiling. Plus, position a microphone to get the best balance according to the location of a sound source. Depending on the kind of device you're connecting, creative possibilities are seemingly endless with this hot shoe extension.

For ultimate versatility, use the hot shoe extension in combination with the 3/8" Boom Adaptor Swivel by Rycote and mount additional cameras, sound recorders or any other device with female 3/8" threading onto the hot shoe extension.

    Hot Shoe Extension is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice piece Bought this for my Canon Vixia HF G10 video camera, which has a mini shoe at the very back. I need to mount an Azden dual channel wireless receiver and a SunPak LED light. The hot shoe extension is 8 in. long and rotates and slides fore and aft for easy adjustment. I use it with a Pearstone mini shoe adapter. To prevent the whole unit from being front-heavy when loaded, I attached a small wooden leg that rests upon the camera top and it affixed with a bit of velcro to keep it from sliding. Works great. (as an alternative, I might look at the Opteka X-Grip (B&H # OPXGRIPBK) along with this extension. Made of strong plastic, so it's very light, but solid.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's alright. I've used this hotshoe extender for a couple weeks now and the plastic construction is proving to be negative. When I bought it, I assumed that it was aluminum and why wouldn't I? Nowhere in the description does it say that it's plastic. So, when I got it, I decided to try it and see how the plastic would do. The verdict is that my hotshoe mounted components are coming loose inside the extender. I wouldn't worry too much about it, but I have $1500 in devices attached to this plastic extender. I think I still have time to send it back. I'll certainly try. I would not recommend this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLASTIC!! I'm not usually the one to write a review unless the product is on either end of the spectrum. Unfortunately, this one is on the bad side. Perhaps i didn't read everything clearly but the extension is primarily plastic. Not very strong ones either. I mounted two Rode NTG-2 and a H4n recorder and it wabbles a lot because the plastic bends and flexes. Anyone looking for extensions of this type, I highly recommend a metal one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works in a pinch The 20 cm Rycote Hot Shoe Extension can get you out of a bind but obviously not sufficiently field tested. Good idea, poor executiion. The device is effectively an extruded piece of plastic that will allow you to attach hot shoe based devices like Senn wireless, Mic iso mounts, LED lights, and so on but way too much flex to be usable or professional looking. Will use in a bind. Possibly retrofit with a metal support bar to eliminate flex. Dedolight has a good hotshoe multiplier but does not have the low profile of this one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent piece of hardware I was a little skeptical buying this, since some of the reviews mentioned that it's plastic and can flex a bit. It is, and it does... but still I count it a usable acquisition. The construction is sturdy enough that I can mount a Senn wireless receiver, Tascam dr100, and small Azden mic without any flex. It fits in my Canon T2i shoe mount, and also has a 1/4 tap so I can mount it on a light tripod. Don't expect this thing to dampen any sound if you record on a device attached to it, though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple tool - easy to customize I use this extension so that I can have a top light plus 2 wireless ENG mic's on my camera for man on the street type interviews where I want better audio. The camera is set up in a way that horizontal mounting of this extension does not work. I simply unscrewed the base of the rail, set a repositioning where the rail is off set and runs in line with the body of the camera and things work great. Sturdy enough to handle the weight of all my toys (though I do plan to balance as I load it).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Metal Nice long extension, but the plastic material didn't give it enough stability to do the job desired. Looking for the same piece in metal

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I needed an extension to mout with a 1/4 thread a top of a light stand for my Zomm h4n and the reciver for my G3 wireless. I first bought the 4 inch version of this but quickly found the two could not sit side by side. This one is perfect. Both units sit firmly on the unit not too close to the ends. Light weight yet tough eneough to handle the rigors of run and gun wedding filming. Great product
