A99 Multi Interface Shoe

I hate it!

The new Sony A99 has so much going for it but it makes you live with this adapter. I miss the ability to quick release the flash without leaving this big knob of an adapter on the camera. I use several different flashes so this compounds the irritation.

I can no longer use my F20 as a substitute for an internal flash. On the A900 you can fold it down and it is very compact. With the A99 and the adapter it sits an inch in the air no longer able to just be left on and folded over.

I had a perfect setup with my better beamer and external flash. Now I have to use this adapter and it stands an inch tall and blocks the view of my Red Dot sight looking over my camera.

All of this just so the video which I never use has audio connections.

Where is the F20 flash with the new interface shoe?
Where is the flash extension cable with the new interface shoe?

We shouldn't have to use this clunky adapter!
