My HVL 60 won't interface with my Flash Wave radio triggers because the new "standard" foot is...."non-standard". There's no sync terminal on the flash. It's wildly complicated to use in the wireless mode on camera. And there's no off camera sync cord made by anyone on the market.

Here's my latest work around: http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/2013/06/a-small-victory-against-engineering.html

It's a full on rant but at least I am now able to trigger both variants of Sony flashes with my "industry standard" triggers. But, of course, only on manual...

Grrrrrrrr.
