Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount

You Pay: $18.95
Product Highlights
  • Mount & Sync Up to 3 Flashes
  • Uses Standard 1/4"-20 Thread Mount
  • Built-In 3.5mm Jack for Sync Cord
  • 3.5mm Jack Supports Wireless Receivers
  • Mix and Match Flash Brands on Adapter

The FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount from Impact allows you to mount, sync and fire up to three flashes from this single adapter. You can fire the flashes at full power for greater light output or, for faster recycle times, fire them at half power to conserve the energy. This unique adapter features a female 1/4"-20 thread for universal mounting, and may be combined with an umbrella or other similar lighting accessories (all sold separately).

The mount has a 3.5mm jack that allows you to use a sync cord to connect the adapter to your camera or wireless receiver. If you own an Impact PowerSync DC Radio Slave System or a similar wireless unit, you can fire them all with a single receiver attached to the adapter. While not designed for use with high-voltage flashes, you can mix and match flashes from most major digital camera manufacturers without issue - though the electrical requirements should always be considered beforehand.

Mount and sync three different shoe-mount flashes with a single bracket, and fire all three with a wireless receiver. You can also mix and match flashes from most major digital camera manufacturers.
The adapter has a female 1/4"-20 thread for universal mounting, and a 1/8" (3.5 mm) jack for a sync cord or wireless receiver.

      I just needed something to help combine my speedlights without having to use another system of lights, ie Alienbees, etc on location. I also didn't want to have a receiver on each hotshoe to trigger the flashes.

      This simply gets the job done. I can trigger all 3 flashes with on receiver and now I have plenty of flash power.
      Be careful when attaching the PC cord. One of my triggers wouldn't work, but a newer trigger worked well, however, the speedlights didn't like me messing with the PC cords while the speedlights were on, so I hope I don't blow anything up.

      A very small unit. Simple design. Should work with low to moderate use. Have my doubts about its stregth in holding the three speedlights securely while up on a lightstand Possible light modifer such as an umbrella attached to light stand may be unsteady. Cost is very low. We will keep as a possible back up if needed on inside work should our other heaftier unit not be available.. This unit does have a port that accepts a 33' impact sync cord ( a plus )

          Don't expect to use it a lot, but when you need that extra stop of flash... Works as advertised. Construction is a little light to hold 3 full sized speed lights, but it does. Note that the offset shoe on a Flex-TT5 precludes it from being mounted on this adapter. Velcro it to the light stand.

            Simple, easy to use, and I wonder why more companies don't make things like this. All you need is a sync cord and you can fire three flashes with a single receiver. I put this at the end of a monopod to make a light stick in a shoot recently, and if you have an assistant that knows how to light (or follow instructions), you can move fast fast fast. Anyone shooting weddings or events can get a lot of mileage with one of these. Will likely order another.

              I use this product when I just one a single light source, but need a little extra power than one speed light along can give. My speedlites feel secure in the hot shoe brackets and it gives me ample power when using larger umbrellas or softboxes for an on location shoot, when strobes are not an option.

                I could have given this 5 stars if it has a one foot cable included. I'm trying to use this with my Pocket Wizard Plus II. I'm now looking for the 3.5mm male to male mono cable to buy before I can use this thing.

                  Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

                  I like being able to use 3 flash units on one umbrella to help knock down the ambient light.

                  It does add noticeable weight at the top of the light stand so you must be prepared to secure the stand much more than before. I also found that I must place the 2 heavier Lumpro 160's on the side mounts and the Nikon SB600 on the top to keep everthing well balanced.

                  It does work well.
