    I'm finding that an item that is sorely lacking on a Red (Red Epic in my case) is a simple/dumb "hot shoe." I'm sure there a ways to fix one to a body with all the different top and side plates, but if a guy like me with a bare-bones Red Epic wanted to mount one to the side of a camera body, that is sturdy and practical, does anybody have any tips on doing it?

    For a cold shoe just bolt one of these to one of the female 1/4" 20s on the top of your body. If you want it on the side use a rib plate, top plate, or similar cheese plate with side female threads. I'd never glue anything if it was me.

    Thanks Ian. B&H have several options that I'm exploring.

    I got the Wooden Camera one ages ago, it's been good! Are Wooden Camera OK on Reduser at the moment?

    So far that looks the handiest. Wooden Camera prices too ;-)

    But many thanks!

    Lots of options. I bought one of those wooden camera cold shoes before I realized that you can buy the same thing for $5 anywhere else.

    I think the best option is a long nato rail and a cold shoe that mounts to it. They’re very cheap on amazon. Works well for mounting a small shotgun mic.

    Thanks Alex, I'll look into that this evening. I want to mount an articulating arm but most are 11" so I have some figuring to do.

    for additional mounting points on the sides there are right and left side plates available at Smallrig
    I have the Red grip on the right but the left plate is very useful!

    I purchased a NATO Rail Mount with a removable cold shoe.
