2008 post[edit]

As I understand it, a hot shoe is proprietary. One form is a Minolta hot shoe. I wonder if there are standards (i.e. IEEE standards). There is also a thing called an accessory shoe. How is it different from a hot shoe? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hatsandcats (talkcontribs) .

imho, every shoe that is able to trigger a flash is a hot shoe. This basic functionality is not proprietary, but standard. The term accessory shoe may refer to a passive shoe without any electrical connection, or - more advanced - to those shoes used on same camcorders which have additional functions, like power supply for lamps, or mic input.
