The ProMaster 5" Cold Shoe Mount attaches to the base of any camera using its tripod port. The mount extends to the side of the camera and provides a cold shoe to mount an accessory like a microphone, LED light, and more. It is particularly helpful with small cameras lacking a shoe or for any camera when an additional shoe is needed. This Cold Shoe Mount also gives a fast means of connecting your camera to a tripod. The round mounting knob at its base is compatible with Dovetail (Arca-type) tripod quick releases. A threaded 1/4"-20 port in the base gives even more mounting possibilities.
