Post Re: compatable flash units for K5

I've added links to Gareth's last post to assist. Essentially I think all he's saying is that you can use the item he linked to first (and in an earlier reply). But he finds the supplied foot a bit weak for his regular use, so has substituted these other items. But you could start without such niceties.

Note that you can buy additional receivers later, or instead buy package with 1 transmitter + 2, 3, or more receivers depending on how many flashes you want to use simultaneously. (If you already have optical slaves by any chance, then you could get by with just 1 receiver and trigger the rest from that one using the optical slaves.)

Ron, using the above clamp, hotshoe PC adaptor and wireless trigger/receiver combo (wireless trigger being the later one thats the same as mine I put up) then you'll have a good degree of adaptability as you can then buy a shoot through brolly / reflector brolly for portraits. you could then position the flash on a standard tripod as the top of the clamp where the flash goes unscrews off to reveal a standard 1/4" tripod thread. You could even then buy a light stand for it to sit on instead so more portable and lastly you could buy more receivers so you can fire off multiple flashes simultaneously using the one camera mounted sender!
