I plan to use this for Fireworks video while doing bulb-mode photography of the Fireworks. This adapter fits my little HD video camera, and mounts it directly to the top of my DSLR. One I get things lined up, I can take stills while recording video. Comes in handy for when you need long exposures while capturing video.
It is solid, and the camera will likely break before this adapter does.

Very lightweight. The problems are:
The locking nuts are too hard to tighten and loosen, too small in diameter and the serrations on the outside are too close together to grip well. I have to use needle nose pliers to tighten/loosen.
The entire item is aluminum and I do not really know if the ¼ x 20 stud is robust enough to use with a monitor without having a fatigue failure.

I got this specifically for putting a GoPro on top of my DSLR when filming/ shooting bowfishing and some hunting. Does as advertised and works well with my Hero 4 GP. The tightening nuts are a bit awkward to turn but, it's not a deal breaker IMO. I do have big old sausage fingers, so I am sure that plays into it a bit...LOL.
These are cool. They are cheap and simple to use, but work amazingly. For starters, these open up huge possibilities for adding stuff on to DSLRs and C series canon cameras, or really any other cameras for that matter. If you have a DSLR and want to mount a ZOOM recorder, throw this in the hot shoe and screw the ZOOM into the quarter 20 hole and viola! Or a light. Or or or... you get the picture. Heck, you could mount another camera on top of a camera with this, maybe you want to throw a VR camera on top of your rig for a cool behind the scene shot, who knows? but seriously, these things are awesome!
Does it's job and is sturdy.
Richard, with white hair & glasses in monitors on 2nd fl was extremely helpful.
Trying to find good monitor for Sony A7II / A6000 / Nikon D7200.
He suggested Ikan, and helped set it up. Thanks for caring!
sturdy, well made
Gets the job done.
sturdy and reliable
Great addition for mounting led camera light on camera
It can come unscrewed pretty easily which can be annoying, but otherwise it does what it's supposed to do.
Great product! Does what is suppose to!
Works great for mounting my Zoom H5 to my DSLR.
Super easy to use! I've been using to hold the mic on my Sony NEX!
I can find no fault with this adapter. Works great supporting an external monitor to the camera. However, I might add a washer between the top wheel and monitor, as it can be a bit difficult to accurately position and secure the screen.
I use this product for my LED light source when I shoot photos. Does exactly what I need it to do, no complaints.
Works perfectly with my camera setup!!!
Excellent device. Use it to hold my pre-amp on my 70D.
Got this to mount my Zoom audio recorder onto my camcorder. What can I say? Good price, works great, solid construction, and I didn't have to go to town to buy it.
It's a solid adapter, the knobs turn of their own volition occasionally and you have to readjust, but that's expected
Great! Works exactly how is should
The problem is I'm not so sure it's compatible with the Zoom H4n. The screw won't totally go in and it's pretty hard to tight up the upper washer once the recorder is attached. Even if it is tighten up my Zoom H4n gets loose after a short while. But I suppose it's an ok post adapter for any other use, not just so great with the Zoom H4n.
