Are there any hot shoe adapters for a NEX-3?

Ext Flash vs viewfinder and flash voltage...

I used the Sony flash with my NEX-3. Just tried manual mode and no the viewfinder doesn't change (ie will be as dark as you manual settings suggest). You might want to see if the "hot shoe adapter" also tells the camera that a flash is attached and whether that uses a different exposure setting for the view versus the shot...

Just got a NEX-6 and the non-Sony external flash with that has the same problem. But a half-shutter press gives ~ 1/2 second of auto exposure view - enough to compose. Also I use the Wein safe voltage adapter to use my Metz 30 from the 80s... nice to have a power-flash on the camera!
