canon hv30 – accessory shoe removal

Yes, the tethered accessory shoe is really annoying. Especially when you want to put accessories on your HV30 like this:

Solution found after a search over at HV20.com. Special thanks to Spider.JM for the post and pics!

Its done and I’m proud to announce we don’t need to worry about parts falling into the camera. When you do remove MAKE SURE YOU ONLY CUT ONE SIDE. Otherwise it will fall in… You just need to pull it out after you’ve cut one side.

Tool list:
-Needle Nose Pliers (not required)
-Either Sharp clean Scissors or Exacto Knife

Basically try to stretch it away from the camera so that you have both strands away from each other, then progress to snipping ONE strand. Then just pull the cover out with the last strand STILL intact! Once its out, sever that other side, and make it so theres about 2mm left on the cover so that it will still fit back into the camera.

Pics of my fully accessorized Canon HV30 incoming.
