Light stand screw

Yes, they have a tapped brass fitting that's the same as the tripod mount hole on the bottom of cameras. I just screwed a light stand fitting into one to make sure it's the same. Only problem for me is that my umbrella holding brackets have only a cold shoe clamp and not the 1/4-20 stud. So I'll probably just hang them off the side for now.

I haven't had time to fully mess with them, but I turned all four of them on earlier, plugged one into my camera, and it worked nicely as a shutter release both for "half press" and bulb exposures. (It seems to lock open if held for more than 2 seconds or so.) Didn't plug in strobes yet but the LEDs on all four flash when the trigger goes off. They'll get full real-world use on Thursday.
