This Hot Shoe Adapter allows you to adapt the B.E.C. box that you have for use where Hot Shoe Mounts are available. Often times this is the only option for smaller DV Cams. The adapter quickly mounts onto the existing slots in your B.E.C. box and you can piggyback another box if needed. This is a very handy device that prevents the need for having another system just for Hot Shoe Mount. The adapter fits into the same slots used when rear mounting the box for larger type cameras. Connecting the two is very quick and easy. If you own a B.E.C. box, this is a must for your kit.
