It looks like it will fit any standard hotshoe and coldshoe and is powered by its own batteries so I don't see that it will do any harm to the camera. Either mirrorless version or DSLR version should work.

No, there is no electric involvement with the camera. Thank you. Then I know. I just wasn't sure if hotshoes maybe come in different shapes and sizes nowadays.

I seem to remember some Sony hot shoes are/were different, as you often see mention in products of simple non-electrical fitments "not for Sony". Might be the obsolete mindset of vendor - Sony Mirrorless, C&N dSLR
