Sony FA-CS1M overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Sony FA-CS1M reviews

    FA-CS1M Off-Camera Shoe for External Flash with Multi-Interface Shoe (Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The only show in town for wired A7 off camera flash This is the ONLY option Sony offers for wired off camera flash with the A7 series. It works fine with my A7II and HVL-F60M. The only cord that will fit this item is the FA-MC1AM cord, which has about 2 feet of useful length. The only proprietary aspect of this cord is the size of the plugs. Otherwise it is an overpriced four wire conductor. There is an extension cord that will add another 2 feet, should you also need that you will be well over $$to get your flash off the camera. There are numerous other third party off camera hot shoe-cord combinations for other cameras, many of them well below $$for the entire package, some with longer cords, unfortunately none for the Sony multi interface shoe, yet. One star for the monopoly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money! 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay for what it is... I bought this before receiving my new Sony A6300 camera because I was under the impression that the camera hot shoe would not trigger basic non-MIS strobes such as Nikon SB800 and studio systems. As it turns out there IS a center pin on the camera shoe that does provide basic sync functions so I didn't really need this item for immediate needs. Neither camera shoe nor this allow non-MIS strobes any sort of communication nor automatic TTL capabilities so your old strobes will need to be used manually which is okay for me because I usually just use the built in strobe on the camera for point-and-shoot applications. When I get out the big strobes I usually do manual set-ups anyway and only need the sync. I did keep it because I figure on eventually filling out my Sony system with one of their MIS Strobes. I'm trying to build a decent travel kit without hauling around my a Nikon B8000 and all it's lenses and I like doing macro work where having the strobe a little off camera is a must. the Sony 90mm macro lens gets in the way of the strobe when on camera. Meanwhile I also bought the Vello 3ft MIS extender which also provides basic sync for non-MIS and gives a little off camera reach with simpler cabling. What I really wish for is a simgle strobe show standard to cover all the functions but that will never happen!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my problem - works great! Sony didn't make it easy, but this shoe was the final link to allow me to use off-camera flash with my Sony RX-10 camera - works great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thought this had 3 pins like Canon 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.
