CMS-FLAT v2 - Canon Mini Accessory Shoe to Universal Shoe Adapter
NEW: Now with all metal construction, and easier to use than original CMS-FLAT
If you have a non-Sony SLR and your microphone doesn't fit, try the UNI-FLAT.
This adapter converts Canon’s proprietary “Mini Advanced Shoe” shoe to a universal “cold” shoe. The Canon Vixia HF10, HF11, HF100, HF20, HF200, HG10, HG20, HF S10, HF S100, HF M30, HF S20 and HF S200 are known compatible. Other Canon camcorders with the “Mini Advanced Shoe” should be compatible, but have not been tested by DM-Accessories yet. Canon Vixia HV20, HV30 and HV40 do not need this adapter.
This adapter tightens down securely, it will not rattle or fall out. The universal shoe mount is powder coated aluminum, the knob is anodized aluminum and the base is stainless steel.
There is no electrical connection made with this adapter, it is a cold shoe mount only. The base of CMS-FLAT stays clear electrical contacts by a wide margin to protect against accidental contact.
The colors are offered for color matching reasons only, either adapter will work with any Canon camcorder with a mini shoe. Both color coatings are equally durable.
The silver colored adapter is shown on the HF100.
