Opteka Double Shoe Bracket

Opteka releases a dual cold shoe bracket that mounts to your camera's hotshoe. It's a simple way and inexpensive way to mount two accessories directly to your camera such as an LED light, microphone, or audio recorder.

The Opteka looks to have a shorter profile, but it is very similar to the Dual Light and Sound type bracket found below.

If you really want to load up on your hotshoe, another slightly more expensive option is the Alzo Multi Mount. This includes a microphone / portable audio recorder shock mount, 4 cold shoes, and 1/4-20 holes for even more accessories. It can be used on the camera, but we often use this type of mount on a light stand config (seen below).

    @jared - The correct term would probably called cold shoe since there are no electronics on it to fire a Flash. The hot shoe of a camera has connections for flashes.

    I apologize for asking such a simple question but what is the difference in a hot shoe and a cold shoe?

    Any resellers for the Alzo Multi Mount in Europe? I can't find it on eBay and Amazon.com dosen't send it to my location.
    It would be perfect for my rig :)

    @getem - For one it's waaayyy cheaper. LOL. Also some accessories can't be mounted that closely together on the J-Cube. I guess it depends what you need to mount and how much you're willing to shell out to do so.
