Off camera shoe for Canon A-1/AE-1p
Although I rarely do flash photography a need has arrisen, and I'm trying to solve a problem. I use Canon A-1s and AE-1 Programs primarily, and have several dedicated Sunpak strobes. The problem is getting them off the camera without loosing the dedicated function. I'd read somewhere a while back that that Off Camera Shoe 2 for EOS will work, and in this hope have recently ordered one. But I wonder if I've made the right choice. Does anyone have any experience with this solution, or can anyone recommend a different solution?
Canon A1 off camera strobe
I have a couple of A1's, and since there is no ttl flash ability on the camera all a dedicated flash will give you is a flash ready light in the viewfinder, I just use a 1meter coiled flash sync lead, and a bracket.
