Re: HOW TO flash mount removal + step by step pics

the only reason I hesitate about this is in the day that its extremely hot and causes the plug to come or slowly melt. I don't know how hot it would have to be, and I'm probably over worrying, but now I don't have to worry about it lol.

Otherwise your idea works well...I think the main point is to do SOMETHING as opposed to not doing anything lol

Well there you go. For anyone who buys this flash, remove that pin immediately! You will save yourself a LOT of heartache, and hopefully you won't lose a camera in the process like I did.

Alternatively, you can fill in the hole in the flash mount that the pin drops into with wax or some other removable substance. The flash fits securely enough on the mount with the tightening of the screw that the locking action of the pin isn't necessary.
