Does the Air Direct need to connect or be mounted in the hot shoe of my camera?

Posted by: on Dec 12, 2019

The Air Direct connects to your camera’s USB port, leaving the hot shoe free for use with other equipment. The Air Direct has been designed with flexible options for mounting and use. Our recommended option is to mount the Air Direct Arca Clamp to your L-Bracket.

Other alternative methods for mounting and use include:

  • Mount on the camera’s hot shoe if it is available.
  • Attach the Air Direct to a tripod leg using the StrapMoore.
  • Mount to an arm or clamp with the 1/4″-20 thread on the bottom of the cold shoe.
  • Use a longer USB cable, allowing you to carry the Air Direct in your pocket.
