I purchased a Shure VP83 LensHopper Shotgun Microphone from B & H for my Nikon D610 also purchased from B & H. This adapter works perfectly to attach the female end to a light stand and the male end to the bottom of the Shure Mic to pick up the sound better when shooting video.

very poor quality

The threaded  swept at the first use. It's useless now.  It's very cheap but very poor quality.

This adapter works, but doesn't provide much of a stable base to support a camera firmly.

Snap / break easily - do not overtighten.

Comments about Impact Small 3/8" Female Threaded Adapter to 1/4"-20 Male Threaded Post:

These are functional but being brass metal they're soft and snap / break if you over tighten. We're all guilty of over tightening in our industry cause we know €hit happens.

Didn't work for me

Comments about Impact Small 3/8" Female Threaded Adapter to 1/4"-20 Male Threaded Post:

Was probably using it in the wrong capacity -- using it to place a camera on a slide mount -- but it broke after one day of use. Seems to have a very low tolerance for supporting anything on the stem as we were just using it vertically to hold a 10 lb camera.

      This piece works as described. I use it to attach a recorder/monitor to my shoulder rig. It is sturdy, easy to use, and feels like it will last for quite a while.

          There are so many combinations from light stand to various lights, and this will make my life so much easier. Sometimes I need a ¼" 20 male to male and I stack and stack adapters and still can't get there. This simplifies attachment for me. I may need another...

            This was the key component needed to solve my problem of being given old light stands that had an old size male thread. After many searches online I called BandH and the rep solved this problem immediately with this adaptor. Thank you for enabling me to use my old light stands.

                    I use this to go from my boom pole into a UE bluetooth speaker. That way when my producers/directors request playback on a previous take, I can complement my department's work with an on the fly mix. Plus it gives me practice to recreate the scenes from other movies.

                        I needed this adapter to hold my radio popper and remote flash on a tripod. It is perfect! The durability is has no limit for me.

                          Stuck this baby on the end of my boom pole, attached one of my GoPros to it and got some great overhead shots of a recent Longboard skating competition. Boom pole adjusts quickly, is lightweight and handles the GoPro well. Very inexpensive way to get a high angle shot in a matter of seconds.
