    Which reminds of another question: I will mostly use the TLR in natural light situations but what about studio strobe? Is there a pc link on those bad boys?
    I'm sure I'll be corrected if wrong, but a "cold shoe" is basically an accessory shoe, to which a flash unit could be attached to the camera. And yes, the lenses have a pc socket. I use my C220 with strobes and monolights all the time.

    Since the lenses are all leaf shutters, you have X-sync from B to 1/500, which gives you a lot of control. Having to remember to move the PC-cord when you change lenses (actually to re-attach it...) is the hard part.

    About the only thing I use the flash shoe for on my cameras is to hold a bubble level. It is placed a little too close to the lens axis for more than fill-in - but aren't all camera shoes?
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    I believe that a Cold Shoe is a flash/accessory shoe that lacks the built in electrical contacts to trigger an appropriate flash unit. You just have to use PC cord.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
