samael9, a simple PC port on the 60m would have been nice :)

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!

Thank you for that  video.

YES,  I ran into that as well.

My RadioPopper Manual Hot Shoe adapter , would not work with the 60m.

I had to dig out some cheap old  adapter  I had laying around , and that worked!  For exactly the reason you describe in your vid.

And yes, for some crazy reason  ... I probably spent  15 min. looking for a PC port on the 60m.  Fully expecting one on the SONY top end flash.

BUT,  really  ... this flash needs to be triggered with a Radio TTL  system.  With TTL and Control.  (not go old school manual)

* But whatever the system you choose  ... it also needs to be able to  MIX  TTL and manual strobes.   That is really useful.
