Beachtek Multimount 5D (thanks Edmond Terakopian)

Edmond Terakopian, a DVi member who first told us about the Beachtek DXA-5D XLR adapter, has updated his blog to include another forthcoming Beachtek product, the MiniMount 5D, which provides four accessory shoe mounting points to your D-SLR. Edmond's blog is located at photo this & that: BeachTek Accessories for 5D MkII

Cool looking product but worried what accessories do they think we can successfully mount that close to each other?!

Good question... the idea might be to either use just the top center shoe, or just the top left and right shoes... not sure that you could fit three things across the top row there.

Looks cool. Makes me want to use it as a top handle though, which makes me wonder if it would be safe to mount something so big on the shoe. I'd be a little concern that something might break or bend.

I bought a similar product a while back and ran into the issue where the accessories were to large to be mounted next to each other. Regardless it's quite an interesting product, especially from Beachtek.

A shovel type of handle at last.
Now I can pick my rig up with ease - and possibly destroy my cam's hot shoe by doing that.

Yep. I've always been curious though how strong those hot shoes are -- it would be cool if it was possible to mount a handle grip straight onto the shoe for crab shots.

I was tempted to buy this and use it as a handle as well.
