I have had my HD1000U since Spring of 2008 and also have noticed the shoe being a little "loose." I think it is the design of the mount. I have a monitor arm and invert bracket for my Ikan 8000HD and with the battery on, it seems to really stress the shoe, so I now tripod mount my monitor or use a superclamp on the tripod arm instead. I think it is one of the camera features that SONY cut back on to keep the cost down. So far, I have had no issues with it when using my interview light or wireless receiver, but it definitely seems less robust than it could be.

Ed - How did this work out for you? Mine continues to be just as loose as it was on day one. Any updates? Thanks.
