Works well with the SB900

Mount the SB900 in the cold shoe and put it in remote mode. Use the pop up flash as the commander.

Cannot trigger flash

This adapter is only realy useful for holding a microphone. Contrary to another review, a flash mounted on this shoe cannot be triggered by a V1 or V3 camera because only the V2 has a pop-up flash. This is a cold shoe. Besides, a mounted flash inhibits the V2's built-in flash from popping up enough to trigger another mounted flash.
In other words, if you want to trigger a regular Nikon Speedlite (SB800 / 600 / 700...) you're best to use a Nikon 1 speedlight that triggers a separate slave shoe that in turn triggers another flash -- that's the safest and surest way to make sure an external flash can fire properly. You'll have to shoot in manual on the on-camera flash, and M or (regular, non-TTL) auto on any other flash.
Otherwise, you'd be better off with a tripod-mount-screw-on bracket

Only a cold-shoe!

PostedNovember 28, 2012
This is a nice camera system, but it desperately needs a hot-shoe adapter, or at least a cold-shoe mount with a PC-sync port. This accessory is strictly a cold-shoe adapter for mounting microphones or other cold-shoe accessories like leveling bubbles. Off-camera flash is critical in many applications, and using optical triggering is a method of last resort for most serious users of off-camera flash.
Many reviews call this accessory a hot-shoe adapter, but that is not correct. Nikon itself does not describe what kind of shoe this is (hot/cold) I have one, and it is absolutely a cold-shoe adapter.

This is a COLD SHOE adapter since you cannot trigger flashes, like the SB-900. It ha limited usefulness, especially since the Nikon website does not even have a picture of this. If there were a picture, almost no one would buy this.
