Vello's Hot Shoe Adapter to Convert Standard Hot Shoe to Sony Hot Shoe allows you to use Sony or Minolta hot shoe mount flashes (or other accessories) on a camera with a standard hot shoe. Because Sony uses a proprietary hot shoe type, Sony (and Minolta) hot shoe accessories could not be used with any other brand cameras - until now.
In addition, this adapter allows you to add a PC connection to any camera or flash that does not come with a built-in PC sync connection, while still retaining the existing hot shoe functionality (manual mode only, non-TTL).
Note! This adapter does not provide high-voltage sync protection, and is not recommended for use with flash units that have a trigger voltage of more than 6V.
