AS-N1000 Multi Accessory Port Adapter
Only a cold-shoe!
This is a nice camera system, but it desperately needs a hot-shoe adapter, or at least a cold-shoe mount with a PC-sync port. This accessory is strictly a cold-shoe adapter for mounting microphones or other cold-shoe accessories like leveling bubbles. Off-camera flash is critical in many applications, and using optical triggering is a method of last resort for most serious users of off-camera flash.
Many reviews call this accessory a hot-shoe adapter, but that is not correct. Nikon itself does not describe what kind of shoe this is (hot/cold) I have one, and it is absolutely a cold-shoe adapter.

Review of Nikon AS-N1000, Port Adapter
This is a COLD SHOE adapter since you cannot trigger flashes, like the SB-900. It ha limited usefulness, especially since the Nikon website does not even have a picture of this. If there were a picture, almost no one would buy this.
