I meant this is only non TTL ?.

Yes, this solution for sure is not TTL.
Actually if you look on HVL-F7S specs, is not TTL neither....

And I'm learning from Zack Arias workshops to use full manual solution, so no need TTL, just manual settings.

Great idea.

But, the use of an opto-isolator would be safer for the camera. (eg MOC3030 + a resistance for LED)
Some flash have high voltages.

Thank you for your search.

Yes, I know that, but I built this based on my needs only.

My YN560II is low voltage strobe, and my older flash (a Braun BC31) that use to be high voltage, I already include the optoisolator circuit inside one year ago.
So no risk (for me)!

Every one can improve for sure this solution.

Actually I want to modify some hot shoe to attach in the top of the flash, then an small WLL transmitter can be attached directly on flash body.
