    So...I lost the hot shoe table stand that came with my Canon Speedlite 580EX. Any idea where I can find these online? I can't seem to turn them up at places like B&H.

    Thanks!

    Well in the meantime you could use a shoe, like a real one. Handy trick from strobist :)

    Contact your local photo shop it's likely to be a special order item and will probably be expensive.

    Amazon... $16 or $28 I believe? I saw it there about a month ago. I am at work else I would find you the link myself.

    I tried Canon first but I couldn't find theirs but here's the Nikon.....

    As you can see while I do agree that everything photo related is $$$$$$ $16-$28 is a little on the high side. I think i you REALLY want the Canon someone With a 580EX needs to find the model nuber on theirs and post it so yo ucan do a search. Nikon has theirs listed on the website so it was easy to find I am sure you can use the Nikon though i is pretty much the same thin except ti has a Nikon name on it.

    Hey, 7.95 is a LOT better than 16-28 bucks for the same thing!

    The thing is, they come with every SB-800, but if you lose or break them, its a pita.

    Of course it's on the high side it's an accessory. I smacked my D200 in a cliff face ages ago and cracked the protective cover on the LCD. That little piece of plastic cost me $25AU ($21US) to replace!

    I understand they do come with every SB-800 I got one with mine but the OP lost his. Well as I said I found it on the Nikon site Canon did not have theirs with a seperate part number a Canon user might help the OP with this one. Or he could just go with the Nikon model as it is prety much the same thing.
