RX1 dead hotshoe
Jan 18, 2013

None of my external flashes will work in my RX1. One is an ancient Vivitar 283 that I have had forever (I checked trigger voltage when I got it and it is safe) the other a cheapo generic flash. Both units worked  on all my NEX and m4/3 cameras I have owned over the last few years. I just use them in dumb dumb manual mode, no dedicated  metering or anything. They just wont fire when I press the shutter on the RX1. Is there a switch or menu option to activate the hotshoe, or is my camera going back? I have checked and it appears to be making good contact.

Sony RX1
