Sony FA-CS1M Off-Camera Shoe for External Flash with Multi-Interface Shoe (Black)

You Pay: $48.00
Product Highlights
  • Connects Flash to Wired Control System

The black FA-CS1M Off-Camera Shoe from Sony attaches to an external flash equipped with the multi-interface shoe, and connects it to Sony's wired off-camera eTTL flash control system introduced by Minolta. This wired system provides off-camera eTTL exposure control of flash units in cases where the wireless system can't be used. The FA-CS1M gives you the 4-pin port that accepts the system's wired connector. Any external flash with the multi-interface shoe that doesn't already have this 4-pin port is compatible. The required 4-pin connector cables FA-CC1AM, FA-CS1AM and FA-EC1AM are available separately.

Construction Plastic and metal
Dimensions Approx. 1.1 x 1.1 x 1.4" (2.7 x 2.7 x 3.6 cm)

            It's a 4 pin connection so idk if this really works or not as I don't have any cables that will plug into it.

                I bought two of these and a cord so I can hand hold the flash and direct the light. The B and H salesperson was very helpful.

                  This is a great way to get the flash off your camera. Its built solid, and the additional hotshoe on the top is awesome for attaching a pocketwizard. I only wish that the connector turned a full 360.
