REALLY confused about the "standard" hotshoe- NEX6
May 23, 2013

So, I've read and searched a lot on the forums/google and I'm still confused about mounting wireless flash triggers on the Nex-6. I'm trying to save money without buying an adapter and buying a third party trigger.

So my options are:

Cactus V5

Yongnuo RF603/602

Do these flash triggers work with the NEX-6?  I've read mixed reviews stating they need mods, work perfectly, or needs adapters.  I'm not sure which to believe.

The flash unit I will be using is the Nikon SB-24 that my father gave me.  It works well when mounted on the camera. I'm looking for another flash too. I've read that the Yongnuo YN460 both works and doesn't work with the 6.

So, I was wondering if someone can clarify the hotshoe (or is it cold shoe?) on the Nex.  I've heard that I need to purchase the nikon versions of flashes and triggers as they work with the nex.


Sony Alpha NEX-6
