A99's Standard ISO shoe - how strong is it?
Nov 12, 2012

Now that I have a camera with a real shoe, this opens up many things I can attach to it.

For example, I have a handle that I've attached (rigged) as well as a 5" LCD monitor. I had to torque it a reasonable amount before I feel comfortable carrying it around this way.

I've only used the 24mm lens so far - I wonder if I throw on the 24-70 it'll be too much? I'd say the grip + LCD + HDMI cable weigh no more than 2 pounds.

Thoughts?
