Accessory shoe attachment ?

I would like to have the GoPro Hero2 sitting on top of my EX1. Is there an attachment to secure it to the accessory shoe slot on the camcorder ?

Hi Mike

Without getting to fancy and going the DIY route, the simplest way to to get a GoPro Tripod mount and then you find a mini-ball head that has a cold shoe on the bottom and the normal 1/4" thread at the top that will screw into the GoPro Tripod mount....that way you have an adjustable mount that clips onto the camera's cold shoe and screws directly into the tripod mount.

I found my cold shoe mount mini-ball head on eBay

Hi Mike

Metal Mini Tripod Ball Head 1/4" Mount+Flash Shoe for DSLR SLR DC Camera Mini DV | eBay

The source is from China so there is a good chance he lists on the UK site too!!

It's dirt cheap but has survived well so far
