Using low profile, high voltage Metz flashes
I use a couple of older Nikon and Sunpak manual flashes with my SLRs and they work very well. With a bracket they are fine, but on camera, especially with a dome/sphere, they look huge and unwieldy and I fear I will rip out my hotshoe sometimes.
Looking into the older Metz flashes which are low profile like the SB400 and have good GN of 100 or more with 4 AAs (30 BCT and 32CT). But they have the high trigger voltage. I know the Wein will work, but has anyone tried the Pixel Hotshoe to PC sync adapters? I mean put the adapter on the camera hotshoe, tape the pins on the flash completely before sliding it in the adapter, and connect the PC cable to the flash to fire it?
I know it will be Auto or manual only (no TTL etc) but I am fine - I bounce mostly anyway and tweak the WB to taste. Thanks in advance - great forum.
