Just a little curious Why?

The New Standard Hot Shoe  imho is a great idea  ... because you "Should" be able to use Radio Triggers and Flashes that any other camera can use on there Hot Shoe.  (and still use SONY stuff)

Problem that I "just" discovered ...  that a Standard Hot Shoe Radio Trigger DOES NOT Fit on it.

because the  SONY pins at the end of it is stopping the FOOT from going all the way IN.

Weird ...   There must be a trick to this?


There's a trick. I made a video about my solution. The foot of the f60m sticks out about 3mm farther than a regular speedlipins because of the com pins.


Hope this helps!
