K-Tek Shoe Department Optimizes Camera Accessory Mounting
In an effort to find a home for the many audio and video accessories that shooters would like to fit on or around the camera, K-Tek has introduced the Shoe Department. This series of adapters optimizes accessory mounting whether it’s for lighting, audio, viewing, or video streaming.
K-Tek’s Shoe Department offers 2 shoe bars; an aluminum 6” or 9” shoe bar on a Delrin shoe, shock mounts on a shoe, shoe plates which provide a flat surface for mounting audio transmitter receivers or recorders, a Mini Ball Head on a shoe, offset shoe adapters and extenders, and the newest series of Wiggly Arms on a shoe.
Wiggly Arms currently come in 6” size and can be shortened by taking out sections. Two of the models have a fixed Delrin shoe at one end and either a 3/8x16 or 1/4x20 stud on the other. The third has a shoe at the base and a removable flat aluminum plate on the other end. When the plate is removed there is a 3/8 x 16 stud.
All K-Tek Shoe Department products are made in the USA. Constructed out of machined aluminum, most feature an industrial Delrin shoe.
US prices for K-Tek’s Shoe Department products range from $22 to $85. -- Digital Video
