If you buy a couple of these your options will increase I guess?

on every stand I've seen from the cheapest to the more expensive types if you just take the ISO shoe adaptor off it leaves a threaded post the Sony flash foot fits.

Sony doesn't make speedlights. it could confuse people you ask questions of if you use that trade name generically

This arrangement works ok for most things I’ve found, the Manfrotto bracket on top of the adjustable angle light stand head is separate, and you will need another spigot to put it on if you want to use the bracket. The reflector lock screw is visible as part of the adjustable angle head. You mount the flash in WL mode onto the plastic foot thingy that comes with them. As far as the F42 not firing I don’t know what’s going on there, my A100 fires both of my flashes in WL mode, the Minolta 3600HS(D) and the Sony F56 which is the same as the Minolta 5600HS(D).
