Thanks Coyote - I'm not 100% sure yet what I'm going to do.

I am selling a Pixel King trigger with 2 receivers, not sure if it is suitable or fit your budget ?

Godox is the most economical and flexible advanced wireless system out there. I'd be looking at Godox for sure if I wanted new flash gear.

The flashes are spoofed to operate as if on the camera shoe, so their wireless functionality is not required, but they must obey the pre-flash TTL protocols, so film-era flashes are not suitable.

Alternatively, you could use the current MI-shoe remote units with your 42s and the relevant converters, but the cost would be high.


Thanks Ian... having a look at the Odin / King units it seems like they're carrying inflated prices because they're discontinued.

Hello,

Can anyone advise if there's any remote triggers that work on the old iISO hotshoe (A77) that will allow me to adjust the power of the flashes remotely (& I'll assume I'll have to get corresponding brand flashes to allow this?)

Up to now I've used my old Minolta 4000AF (3x) and HVL-F42AM's (2x) for anything I've needed, but more recently it seems like a big hassle to go around adjusting flash powers on any/all of them one by one. I currently use the Aputure Trigmaster Plus Transceivers which I've found quite reasonably priced / good quality.

I would like HSS but I'm not sure any unit will allow this on the old iISO shoe? What are the options? I don't use multiple flashes very frequently, but it's nice to have the ability. Depending on price I might have to live with the hassle...

TIA!



Adrian

[QUOTE=IanL] I don't have an oscilloscope, so I have tried to make some measurements of the two "main" hotshoe contacts on my a77II using a multimeter. There appears to be some ac-like voltage on the contacts.

Go to simple things.
glad it is sorted
Pete

^ Then I have no explanation as to how raising the pop-up could overcome a problem caused by an intermittent contact that needed cleaning... except as a coincidence.

Actually with the adapter I needed in order to to use ISO, that raised up the transmitter high enough that the pop up did not even touch.
