Adapter holder

Does anyone know of a source? I bought a used XL2 and it was missing this piece, which I need really badly to mount a wireless receiver. I guess I could get it from Canon, but something tells me that's going to take forever. Anybody want to sell me theirs?

Not sure I understand exactly what you mean by "adapter holder". Maybe I don't have one either.

It's a metal (at least I think it's metal) doohickey that screws on the back of the camera to hold certain accessories. In my case, I want to velcro a wireless receiver to it.

Actually, just heard from the seller, and he's found it, but thanks a lot!

Oh yeah. It is called an adapter holder. I always thought it was just a battery holder. It's really ugly not at all like the rest of the Canon stuff.

How about double-sided tape (wonderful stuff) and just stick it to the handle, or on the back of the battery?

I'm looking for a permanent solution. I don't like the idea of putting stress on the battery, and I don't want to interfere with the usefulness of the handle. It is a pretty heavy camera after all. BEC apparently makes a box that will hold my wireless system that mounts on the adapter holder, so that's looking like the way to go.

Marco,

Is there a URL for the BEC box?

Thanks,
Bill
