Mine has arrived and it's very good quality anodised black aluminium.

Rubber pad grips camera well.

Could do with a rubber washer under the bracket to stop tripod knob marking anodising when tightened, but other than that a great little cheapie!

I had to destroy the hot shoe to get the FL-36R off. :eek:

The center pin of the flash foot decends into the hole in the middle of the shoe, efectively locking the gun to the shoe.

I've sent them a message, had a reply and I'm awaiting the out come.

I really should have spotted the hole before I attached the flash. :o

Same here, but if a chamfer is cut into the shoe so that there isn't a hard edge to retain the pin, then it would work OK. If this is jammed on too, then there are other suppliers of blank flash hot shoe mounts to replace it.

The supplier has said they will send me a replacement, so just need to see if it turns up. I'll probably just fill the hole with a small plug of plastic or Araldite. I have a PC Skt hot shoe with a 1/4W hole in the base that will serve as a replacement, so not too much of an issue.

My FL-36R came off without too much of a struggle but I'll have a look at what you've reported and maybe fill any hole too!

Just created a little chamfer with a pair of scissors and now the flash comes off perfectly. Took 30 seconds!
