Re: Multi Interface Shoe on the Nex-6

Looking at the photo of the video interface, there are 16 pins or contacts.  On the NEX 6 there are 22 contacts up under the forward end of the SS rim.

I put several Canon flashes on the NEX 6 shoe, and they all worked in manual mode.  So the basic information for sync etc is in those two large contacts (center pin and outside ground--the canon does not use the side of the shoe for ground.)

I suspect that anything made in the past, plus what your imagination could conger up could be built to be used with this hot shoe.   I would love to see the forgotten 3.5 mm audio in jack adaptor, plus some TTL flashes specifically for this camera.
