UNI-CUBE - multi-point mount for universal shoe mounts
The UNI-CUBE adapts a single universal shoe mount to a multi-point mount, or as a simple right-angle mount for easy sight of signals and indicators, as well as recommended antenna orientation for wireless microphone receivers.
It is only compatible with devices that have a universal cold shoe mount. Canon HV20, HV30, HV40 are compatible, as well as most DSLR cameras (Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Pentax, etc) except Sony & Minolta brand. UNI-CUBE should work on all professional video cameras with a mic shoe.
This adapter weighs about four ounces / 100 grams.
This adapter is also compatible with hot shoes that use the universal mount shape, such as Sony’s IAS (Intelligent Accessory Shoe). IAS should not be confused with Sony’s AIS (Active Interface Shoe), which is smaller and completely non-standard. Please check your camcorder’s labeling or your camcorder’s manual to be sure which shoe it has before purchasing.
