This adapter is used to allow cameras with no hot-shoe - but that do have a PC sync outlet - to use flashes that only feature a hot-shoe connection.

The flash can be mounted unto the adapter, which can then be mounted on the camera's cold shoe, or on a separate flash bracket. The PC end connects to the camera's sync terminal to fire the flash off-camera.

Hot Shoe Adapter 2 - Hot Shoe with PC (Male) Sync Cord is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Know your flash! I purchased this adapter to be used to trigger my Canon 550EX Flash with a wireless system. It is tricky to put on and take off! Be gentle. The pins on the flash is what makes it difficult to put on the adapter. The pins on the Canon flash need to be pushed up while the adapter is slipped into place. I had no problems removing the adapter, I simply hold the flash close to its base and I pushed the adapter out from the back. If this is not done correctly, you can break the flash foot. Be GENTLE! I also use the adapter on my Nikon SB-600 and SB-800 Flashes. The issue here is that the flashes cannot be locked-on to the adapter. The Nikon flashes CAN slip-off and get damaged in a fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should. So far, all of my studio flash cables and accessories have been by Hama, and all have been inexpensive and served me well with no problems. The hot Shoe Adapter 2 is no exception. As stated in other reviews, the fit of the top shoe is somewhat tight, but that just means it will hold the flash tighter. I use it to trigger a Canon 580EX mk I, and becuase of the tight fit the communication pins on the flash foot need to be pushed up when mounting the flash, but that's a negligible annoyance. The flash pins also come close to the metal plate inside the top shoe mount, but there is enough clearance that I have never had a problem with shorting with my Canon flashes. The construction of the unit itself is rock solid, being metal-bodied. I'm planning on ordering more of these for additional flashes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needed some adjustment. I wanted to use this with my new cybersync radio trigger and lightmeter but there was no way that the transmitter was going to slide into the adapter. There are two small springs on either side that I pried out to give me a little extra room and then the thickness of the upper channel was too thick for my xmiter to slide into the shoe. Since the product was realativly inexpensive I decided to sit down with a peice of sandpaper and sand down the thickness of the top of the shoe to accomidate my xmiter. Once done it all works well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wastola this is built very poorly. I was shocked that this got such decent reviews. I guess for the price it's OK and it does function..for now. be aware it smaller than most adapters and fits in a stroboframe type cold shoe adapter, but most built in cold shoes it's just too small. watch you r flash hit the ground many times. you can either bend the adapter so it hold this in and then no other regular size foot on all you other flashes will fit or just gaffer tape it up. Why should one hve to do this? the cord is suc a narrow gauge and the pc is small and slip out of my old cameras most of the time. why didn't I spend twice as much , save myself some grief and get a paramount hotshoe adapter to rollei PC that would last for years??? oh, I know... I'm a cheapskate meathead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For those who don't have PC sync My cheaper flashes (SB600, 580EX) don't have a PC Sync so I got this for them. It's a simple device and just works. I wish the bottom has some sort of locking mechanism though. it would make attaching it more secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job, but not terribly sturdy I use it on a Stroboframe to fire remote strobes using my camera's PC Sync socket. It hasn't let me down. The build quality isn't that inspiring. One decent jolt could easily snap this off. Plus, I have had the spring in the socket fall out a couple of times, but that was easy to bend and put back in so it stays put. It would have gotten 5 stars if it were less expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performer I now have several Hama metal hotshoes. Every other type or brand has broken quickly. It would be nice to have a 1/4 threaded hole and a Nikon lock hole (which is easily Dremmeled). These units are very solid. I just got one with a bad cord, but I expect B&H will replace it with no problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost there... After owning a couple different versions of this by other brand names, I decided I liked the metal construction of this adapter. Unfortunately the adapter does not have a screw thread at the bottom, meaning I still have to use an additional piece to mount this on a stand. Also, the Canon 550 fits so tightly in place, that it takes a little force to get it on. Once on, you can be pretty sure it is not coming off accidentally.
