A Perfect Solution,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ePhoto Vbracket Hot Shoe V Mount Dual Bracket for Video Lights, Microphones or Monitors (Camera)
I got this to use primarily on my Canon XA10 video camera. I needed a higher mount for the shotgun mic and a separate mount for a continuous video light. It serves its purpose quite well. The Canon XA10 has a detachable handle with XLR inputs and a cold shoe. Unfortunately, the shoe is so far forward that if you use a decent shotgun mic, the mic will be in frame in your wide shots. This bracket solves that problem by lifting the mic higher. The bracket is VERY sturdy. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is that it takes some maneuvering to get the thing onto your camera and to get your accessories mounted onto the bracket. The mounts are tight. Hopefully, this will improve as it is "broken in." But, really, it's a pretty small complaint. A great solution at a low price.
