This adapter cable has a hotshoe specifically designed for the Sony ⁄ Minolta proprietary hotshoe. The attached cord provides a sync connection to a Pocket Wizard, an Elinchrom Skyport receiver or a CyberSync receiver.
This cable provides direct and reliable function. It avoids the need to use the unreliable PC sync connector or the need to connect several sync adapters in series (which often results in misfiring).
The hotshoe’s base has a ¼ inch - 20 threaded hole (see inset). This threaded hole allows direct connection to many popular flash brackets including the FlashZebra.Com Item #0041. This hotshoe screws directly onto the threaded spigot provided with many of the popular umbrella adapters. Or the hotshoe can be placed on a common tripod for ad hoc light stand use.
So, this adapter solves two distinct problems in connecting popular radio slave units to the Sony ⁄ Minolta flash units for off camera use: a reliable miniphone plug sync connector, and the standard ¼ inch – 20 threaded hole for easy off camera mounting of the flash.
Disclaimer: This cord will NOT function properly with the following Sigma flashes: Sigma 530 DG Super, Sigma 530 DG ST, Sigma 500 DG Super, Sigma 500 DG ST.
