    I recently purchased a Rollei 16 and need help on how to attach my
    Rollei E15 B flash to the tripod adapter.

    Does anyone know of an adapter or bracket that might make this connection?

    Thanks

    I haven't seen one of these for years but don't remember it having a PC connection. There was a dedicated flash gun for it.
    If it does have the PC contact, you could just hold the flash unit next to the camera to use it.

    If you have the tripod adapter, the PC contact is on one of the thin sides. You have to have the tripod adapter to use an external flash. The manual makes no mention of a bracket dedicated to the camera, you could go to an older camera store and root their their junk bin to find something that might work. I believe Rollei made one for the Rollei35 that would work but they are nigh on impossible to find.
