Gets the job done for a while

15 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this to attach a pocket wizard to the bottom of my camera body while having a flash in the hot shoe on top. I just bought a new one because my old one fell apart. I got a good amount of use out of the first one before it broke, and I am expecting the same from the new one.
  • Pros: Good Color Value, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy, Weak

Happy I found this

  • Excerpt: My NEX-EA50UH has two 1/4x20 mounting holes on the slide-out shoulder support. This flash shoe mount allows me to mount a Sennheiser wireless mic receiver. This help with balance and weight distribution. I consider myself more of a videographer - but only had various photographer descriptors, below.

Cheap plastic flash shoe

Chick who clicks, B&H Photo
14 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I expect better from Manfrotto. The two edges that hold the flash in place are thin plastic. I've gone through three of these now, and I refuse to buy another one. For the same price I can get a METAL cold shoe that I know will hold my flash in place.
  • Cons: Cheap plastic
