    Flashtrigger for SB28

    Hi all
    Those of you who has the SB 28 might think as I do. The testbutton is to difficult to use as offcameratrigger because its so small.
    I have been using my sekonic 308 meter as flash trigger but would like to come up with something smarter. Maybe a hotshoe with comekind of cablerelease ? Any ideas ?
    Regards Søren

    You can adapt an accessory shoe that was meant to put a hot shoe on an older non-hot shoe camera. It'll have a PC cord on it.
    Then you could put either a microswitch or momentary contact switch on the end of the cord.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Soaren - I had the same problem with my SB-25, as I like to make multiple flash exposures with the shutter held open.
    My solution was a generous blob of hotglue on the test button.It makes it easy to locate and trigger without looking, and because the glue is almost tranparent you can still see the readylight.
