    find a bolt-on shoe mount?

    I'd like to get a shoe-mount so I can stick a Voightlander viewfinder on my 4x5. Does anyone know where I can buy a simple bolt-on non-hot-shoe shoe-mount device that isn't tall? I really just need the folded sheet metal, not a contraption.

    Thanks

    I would be surprised if you can't find one somewhere, but I would be equally surprised if it isn't cheaper to buy an old wrecked camera "for spares" and take the accessory off it...

    The Argus C-3 has a bolt on shoe. If you can cannibalize one, your in bizness.
    Also, Voigtlander has a multi-shoe (cold) thing for using a finder and a meter, or whatever on the rangefinder bodies. Cameraquest.com sells those.

    Maybe in one of those bins at camera stores where they have old cameras for a few dollars and you can take one off. Possibly from a cheap Russian camera.
