New WOC Hot Shoe Adapter For Sony NEX 5N. Under $40
We have been using the Sony NEX 5N for our documentary “The Board Of Education” for quite some time and really love it. It has some killer features and is small enough to throw in your pocket with the Sony 16mm f2.8 pancake style lens. The biggest downfall of this camera is the proprietary Sony flash mount. It limits the available on camera accessories to expensive Sony products to the tune of $129 for a hot shoe adapter for the Sony Nex 7. We decided to make our own. Dave Aldrich of Design By Dave on Twitter helped make our idea a reality. The result is a cost effective cold shoe adapter for under forty bucks. The unit shown is a prototype made of plastic. The final product will be scratch resistant hard anodized aluminum. The WOC Sony NEX 5N Hot Shoe adapter will be available shortly. Please stay tuned.
