how to fire external flash on NEX-7?
Jun 12, 2014

Hello everyone, I'm glad to have found this forum.

I bought the NEX-7 alpha when it first came out, and gradually I found that the built in flash to be insufficient for fill-in flash. Seeking a bigger flash, I bought the Sony F-43M flash. I thought since they were all Sony so it should be plug-and-play.. but realize that the shoes were different.

Now I had a Minolta shoe to normal shoe adaptor overnighted to me (

but found that no matter how I play with the settings, I can't get the flash to actually fire.

Is there something that I'm obviously missing?
