What radio trigger with A700?
Aug 15, 2009

I'm looking to be able to use my A700 in tethered mode with studio flash. I've found that tethering prevents me from firing a flash unit via the PC socket, so I'm looking for a radio trigger setup that works with the A700.

I've got the Sony hot shoe adapter (which I'll need for any of them) and I've borrowed a Microsync transmitter and receiver. Problem: When mounted on the A700, no flash. Everything seems to be working, but the A700 just isn't firing the flash. It fires a shoe-mounted flash just fine, and shorting the pins on the hot shoe adapter fires the radio trigger, so I think everything is working. My suspicion is a voltage issue of some sort.

So the question I have is what brand folks are using with their A700s? Pocket Wizard? Microsync (arguing a problem with my camera body, though I don't know what it would be)? Other system?

Thanks!
