The FA-HS1AM hot shoe adapter makes it easy to attach third-party hot shoe flashes to Sony DSLRs. Basically, it allows you to convert your Sony proprietary hotshoe to a standard hotshoe. The unit has a built-in sync voltage protector to protect your camera’s circuit board. The mount is even stable enough to hold larger third-party hotshoe flashes. In addition to all of this, standard pocketwizards can now be used with your Sony camera, which opens up a whole new world of studio lighting. The unit is battery powered and has it’s own battery check LED.
Note: The adapter does not have a pc sync port. If your camera does not have one, you will have to use some sort of radio system to trigger studio strobes.
