So this is ONLY for the 5N? Why? Is the C3 hotshoe different somehow?

That wasn't what I wrote. It should work on any shoeless NEX but my reply was about disabling "live view display" to make the display ignore camera settings and show a bright image - which all NEX cameras do automatically when a flash is detected but only the 5N allows the user to do this manually, which is what is needed since the camera doesn't know a flash is attached when using the adapter.

For that reason it will be hard in practice to use this adapter on a camera other than the 5N.
