Off-camera Flash shoe cord for Sony Alpha / Minolta AF / Konica Minolta DSLR
Item No 270382867512 now being auctioned on eBay.co.uk
This is a Third Party off camera shoe cord for Sony DSLR, Konica Minolta 5D/7D (Dynax/Maxxum), and Minolta film AF SLR cameras (excluding 5000, 7000, 9000). It uses the proprietary flash connection originally developed by Minolta for these cameras – at both ends.
This is an accessory used for moving a dedicated flashgun off the camera - which will give a much better result than using flash on the camera hotshoe – and which is how I ALWAYS use a flashgun. It can be used as far away as approximately 60cm from the camera. I am selling this because I inadvertently bought two cords and so have not used this one.
All the automatic functions of the Sony / Minolta cameras are retained such as the TTL function.
All Sony DSLR Flashguns, later AF Minolta Flashguns (from 3500i, 5200i onwards etc), and Independent brands (Metz, Jessops, Nissin etc) to be used with Sony Alpha cameras (100, 200, 300, 350, 700, 900) and Minolta AF SLR/DSLRs.
