Cold Shoe Flash Mount

Rated 5 out of 5

I recently decided to apply more effort to building my skills in the use of off-camera Speedlight flash. I found the Vello cold shoe on B&H, and the price of approx. $5.00 seemed like an easy investment, especially knowing that the material the cold shoe is made of will not have a negative effect on the electronics of the flash and camera.

If you need it, buy it.

Vello products are well made. A bit expensive, but hey, you get what you pay for. For use where you lighting unit cannot accept a cold shoe attachment. Just screw it into you ball head or similar, then slip you lighting unit into the cold shoe.

Great product. Worth the price.

Vello products are very well made. You can see and feel the quality. Quality materials. I guess you get what you pay for. A bit expensive though.

Adequate for flash on a light stand. Wish it were a bit thicker, the threads on my stand are longer than the threaded mount.

Use in macro to position multiple flashes. Works fine for the price.

question

The Canon flashes quick release system (like the Canon 600EX-RT) has a PIN that drops into a hole that helps secure it. Does this shoe have the hole to secure the flash?
Asked by: Patrick
I don't have this particular model but I do have the Vello HSA-PSN ADAPTER FOR a Nikon and it does have the hole you are referring to.

question

Does this work with a Nikon SB-800 speed light without damage to the pins? I can't tell if the tapered ramp area is wide enough to accommodate the pins on the bottom of the speed light.
Asked by: burke
The tapered area is for the spring loaded locking pin, the rest of the pins are already tapered at the tip, so it makes no difference. I have this and am happy to use it with my SB-910

question

is this or the Joby Universal Flash Shoe thinner?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Joby measures 1.9 x 1.2 x 0.5 (30 x 29 x 11 mm) - we don't have specs for the Vello but the Joby looks to be a little shallower. The flash may sit a few millimeters lower.
