No, this converts Sony/Minolta proprietary hotshoe to a " normal" one. What I ran across plugs into the little smart port on top of the nex5n where the EVF and flash plugs into and uses a normal hotshoe.
KmH,Sony is really good at devising ways to get into peoples wallets.
I think KmH's comment was a tongue-in-cheek remark aimed at Sony's very (IMO) odd concept of using a propietary hot-shoe/flash instead of the industry-standard ISO 10330 hot-shoe used by every other maker.KmH,Sony is really good at devising ways to get into peoples wallets.
Most of your comments in this section are not helpful and unnecessarily negative. Based on all your comments in here, I would venture to say you are a bitter ex Sony employee or you feel you were somehow wronged by the company. As a Sony user and reader of this forum section I find having to weed through your negative commentary boring and repetitive and wish you would either offer constructive advice and insights or leave the Sony users forum be.
"Then something like the adapter the OP mentioned comes out.. what IF it totally screws up your camera? I can almost bet Sony won't repair (under warranty or not) if you use something like this to do something the camera wasn't designed to do! Good luck with it, though! " - cgipson1
Would you expect Nikon to cover a repair of damage caused by a third party accessory attached to your D7000 or D4? I think you would find the same issues with Nikon customer service given the same scenario.
What I don't understand is the need for a few forum users to come into a specific manufacturer thread and bash that manufacturer. Informative opinion and advice is always needed and welcome, and unnecessary agitation is always unneeded and unwelcome - one of those things we all learned in kindergarten.:hug::
