Unread postby cenwyn » Fri Mar 05, 2010 1:55 am

Hi,

I would like to connect my Konica Minolta 3600HS flash to a tripod for wirelessusewith my a700.

Can someone please guide me as to the type of connector shoe I will need?

Thank you.

The foot that came with the flash has a tripod socket in the base. just attach the foot to the tripod and attach the flash and your all set

There are also third-party flash stands available with 1/4" metal thread on the bottom. Do a quick ebay search with the words "Minolta flash stand" and you should find some $6.00 options if you do not have your original.

Now why didn't I think of looking under the stand!

Thank you!
