Hot Shoe Accessory

By

from Bear, Delaware  -  Semi-pro Photographer

After purchasing Canon's 6D and I realized it did not have a PC socket/terminal. I had to find an accessory to connect my PC cables. This was the best pick for me. It allows the use of other devices and/or strobes to trip and at the same time you are able to trigger an on camera flash or any other hot shoe accessories. It's battery power and has a test button to check prior to each event or photo shoot. It's a must for Canon 6D accessories.

Debbie A  Will this work on a Sony a77m2?
Debbie A  Nevermind...a77m2 has one built in...
Shopper  can this item be used on a nikon d7000? I have an old Metz 45CT-1 flash with lots of voltage.
ADRIAN W  Dear "A Shopper", I do not have any background in 'Electronics', as such I cannot answer any technical questions about voltages, etc. Having said that.... I have an old "Norman 202" (2) light system that my Grandfather gave me in 1970'ish. Just last year, My Wood Carving group was having a Wood Carving Show and wanted me to Photograph all of the pieces entered and the winners of the awards as well. I was concerned that I would have Voltage surge problems that would "Burn out" my camera. I called "Nikon" to ask if my "Nikon 5100" would be safe if I used the that old but well kept lighting system along with the "Flashpoint Safe-Sync Hot Shoe". No one at Nikon could give me a direct answer. Then I called the "Norman" lighting company and put the same question to them. They did not even have a record of my "Norman 202 lighting system" in their computer and could not tell me anything either. I called "Adorama" and asked if the "Flashpoint Safe-Sync Hot Shoe with PC Socket" would work with my "Nikon 5100". I was assured that it would work just fine but could not tell me if it would stop any potential problems with my "Norman" lights. It would just depend on how much voltage might be involved. In the end, I just "bit the bullet" and bought the "Flashpoint Safe-Sync Hot Shoe with PC Socket", being the only way to sync my lights/umbrellas to the camera. It worked very well and my Nikon 5100 camera did not suffer any damage from the Norman lights, (I could not tell you if there was even a surge problem with the system and sync cords, not knowing how to check for one). I am quite satisfied with this "Flashpoint" product and would recommend it to others in my predicament. It attaches very securely and gave me the much needed PC Socket that Nikon somehow failed to put on my D5100 camera. Happy shooting! Adrian
Shopper  1) Will this safe-sync hot shoe enable an older Vivitar 283 flash usable on a Fujifilm XE-1 camera either directly on the hotshoe or with the PC sync? 2) How does this Safe-Sync adapter compare to the Wein Safe-Sync in terms of quality and reliabity?
EUGENE R  I bought to of them because I was concerned that my Sunpak 522's woyuld cook my camera's which are Canon 60D and 70 D's. This workds fine and doesn't allow the older higher voltage overload to hit the camera!
