    Hasselblads and Pocket Wizards

    I have a silly question.
    I have been using my Hasselblad 503CW in the studio with Pocket Wizards to connect with my strobes just fine, I just have one question:
    - How the hell do you attach the transmitter to the body conveniently?
    I guess the "proper" solution would be that rail shoe accessory which I must track in ebay (found it once but the deal went sour), but it seems to be kind of a problem sticking out on the side.
    I hang the wizard via its cord around the WLF,
    but is there another way?

    How about one of the handles that have a flash shoe, either Hasslblad or otherwise? Vivitar made a nice one that I had with my first Hasselblad. This one might be a possibility too, http://cgi.ebay.com/Collectable-Hass...QQcmdZViewItem

    Hasselblad makes a flash shoe clip that can be clipped onto a lens shade for any lens. It seems like it might be what you need?

    get a cheap L-bracket with grip handle that has an accessory shoe on top, and put the Pocket Wizard on the shoe.

    Thanks, I guess that's what I'll do.
    I hope its not a problem to use with the quick release plate of my tripod.

    shouldn't be a big deal- just screw the QR plate into the bracket, then attach the bracket to the camera.

    I've just tried it with an old bracket I forgot I had and although the bracket stays well on the camera, the plate is quite loose underneath.
    I have to come up with something, like a rubber to squeeze between them.

    I use one of those Hasselblad accessory flash shoes that mounts onto the accessory rail at the side of the camera. Works perfectly! Another idea would be to get a prism viewfinder with a flash shoe.

    Get the PME or PM 45 or 90. They have a hotshoe on top. That's what I use.

    Thanks Art and Jamie, but getting a new viewfinder is way out of my budget at the moment.
