Does not work with my Sony A200.
This is the second unit I tried.Both will not work as advertised. I'm using a sony A200 and the flash is a Vivitar modle 2800. The Flash works O.K with my film Minola camers, but will not work with your adapter. I also tried another flash with a standard shoe, still will not work. My A200 will work with a Sony external flash. The camera is not at fault. Again I tried other flash units. I believe this adapter is not wired correct.

I have an approx. 20 year old Nissin 360TW flash and a Nikon SB 600 flash I wanted to use in combo in manual mode for my Canon G11 camera because two Pocket Wizard Plus III units make "mix and match" possible if I can make connections. I also wanted to have a PC connector receptacle available in the mix if needed because the Pocketwizards don't have PC receptacles. The three shoes on the Triple Shoe Adapter made connection of the Pocketwizard III receiver unit, the Nissan flash and the SB 600 flash possible. It works well in manual mode with the Pocketwizard transmitter on the Canon G11 shoe and I get lots of light with old flashes and it's easy to hold without any cords flopping around.
I did read the reviews before I purchased this, but I bought some of these anyway. The threads in this adapter are not 1/4"x20, so THEY WILL NOT FIT ONTO YOUR FLASH STAND. I just want to make sure people see that. The nut inside is smaller than 1/4", making it totally useless. I took one apart to see if I could replace the nut, but it won't hold a regular nut, making it more of a mess than I'd like to deal with. The electronics in this are sound, so if you want to, say, lay some flashes on the ground and hope no one steps on them, this is a great product. I purchased two of these previously from a different website, and the nuts were 1/4". The units are absolutely identical, to the point that they must be coming out of the same factory, so I have no idea what's going on with Adorama's.
As others have noted, the thread on this is incorrectly sized. How the manufacturers were able to mess up a 1/4"/20 thread is beyond me. What's doubly odd is that I have the exact same product from another dealer whose thread size is exactly correct. Theirs also comes with a rubber washer to ensure a tight connection. That said, it does kind of fit on a standard brass plug, albeit very tightly. Pretty flimsy, but cheap enough to have a few on hand. Beyond that, it does the job.
well, it works, but the build quality is cheap and the thread mount stripped out two of my light stand brackets. Adorama was quick to refund the purchase, so no worries.
If it were threaded 1/4 x 20 like most anything in photography I would give it a 5 star. I have 3 of them and I rethreaded them to mount on my stands. Other than that they do what they are supposed to do.-I wonder why Adorama did not use the right thread size. This may work elsewhere (don't know where) but not in the US.
The device does NOT have an universal tripod mount, you can't mount it on any tripod or light stand. Really silly!!
I use it to fire 3 flashs at once, I use light weight flashes. Can give you 2 extra stops. It works very well.
Great little tool. Will fire all connected flashes with one wireless receiver (connected to the adaptor with a 3.5mm plug). Seems sturdy, but 3 flashes would appear to be a lot of weight on this item.
I was extremely surprised that I could use this with three Pocket Wizard TT5s for Nikon. It works well. My only concern is durability over time with the weight of three SB-900s and TT5s attached to it.
This is a great inexpensive way to use pc sync devices with cameras that don't come with a pc jack. I use this on my Sony A200 just for the pc sync capability and fire off my Flashpoint budget studio monolight flash (sku FPBF160). It locks firmly onto my camera's hotshoe mount and releases with a button on the side opposite of the pc jack. I have not yet used the hotshoe mount to fire another flash, therefore am unsure of it's performance, but for pc sync operation it's a great investment!
