Hot Shoe Adapter with Safe voltage conversion
« on: December 03, 2021, 04:25:44 pm »

Hi,
I wanted to buy the "Vello HSA-PVU Hot Shoe Adapter with Safe Voltage Conversion" so that I could just use a sync cable in the studio instead of triggers without worrying if the flash pack would damage the camera. Unfortunately B&H won't ship it to Australia as it contains a lithium battery.

(Nothing wrong with triggers, except when the battery dies during a shoot, they do introduce some delay and they are one or two more things to worry about.)

Does anyone know of any alternatives for hot shoe to PC cable conversion with safe voltage (without batteries included) that will ship to Australia please?

Bob

I received a solution on another forum in case anyone needs one. Wein Safe-Sync Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe with PC. A bit pricey though.

Solved hopefully. I have ordered SMDV SM-512 Hot Shoe Safe Sync Adapter through Amazon and they ship anywhere.
