question

The Bolt VS-260SMI Flash for Sony Cameras on the B&H web site appears to show one type of shoe in the first two photos and another type of shoe in the last three photos? The last three photos appear to show a shoe directly compatible with the Sony A6000. Which shoe will we find on the flash that will be shipped to us?
Asked by: Douglas
The Bolt VS-260SMI Compact On-Camera Flash for Sony Cameras comes equipped with the Sony Multi-Interface Hot Shoe, which is the hot shoe listed on all of the images on the webpage, simply viewed from different angles. As the Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera uses the Sony Multi-Interface Hot Shoe, the Bolt VS-260SMI Compact On-Camera Flash would be compatible for use with the Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera.
