Simple solution to add a regular size shoe to ANY Sony cam is to add a flash bracket - less than $20 typically, and it has the added advantage of giving you a second grip on the camera, which helps stability.

I use a pair of folding flash brackets myself, primarily for the added stability, but then I've got two extra cold shoe mounts for lights, mic, whatever...

And it keeps the AIS Sony shoe open in case I want to mount something that fits THAT!

Flashgun bracket

Yep! I agree (in fact that was my second response in the early days of this thread!)...... Dave, please understand I'm only reminding everyone as we don't want to see this thread go round and round in circles like they can sometimes!!!!

I just order one from B&H Non-Standard Hot Shoe for my HDR-HC7. It is free shipping at this moment. Will see if it works well on my 7.
