Hotshoe screw adapter

Has anyone used one of these?
Is there any danger in shorting across the hot contacts?

It shouldn't actually touch anything in the hotshoe, the contacts are slightly recessed. Though they shouldn't have a problem even if you do short them.

Probably a Q. The big question is - Is he using the Q as a viewfinder for the K-01 or the K-01 as a viewfinder for the Q?

Ha, yeh - that's cool.
Not what I have in mind though.
Still - the question I think is answered.
Thanks
