The Sony FA-CS1AM Off-Camera Shoe is used to add an off-camera cable socket to Sony Alpha system flash units (or Minolta Maxxum type models), which do not have this socket built into it. You can then use the FA-CC1AM Off-Camera Cable to operate the flash away from the camera. This allows for more flexible flash positioning and more precise light balance control with Sony Alpha SLR camera series.
Also compatible with Minolta Maxxum xi and i-series flashes.
Features a 1/4"-20 threaded socket at its base, which allows it to be used in combination with a flash bracket, stand, etc.
