Default A99 Flash

Hi All,

Does anyone know if there's an adaptor or convertor that will allow a Canon Flash to work on the A99? I have the 60M but I find its not reliable when doing events where I have to use the flash a lot.

Thank You.

Sony A99 has a large center contact on its hot shoe, a Canon flash will work on it in manual mode. I don't think you need to have an adapter for it.

@WCKSer,

Thank You. Yeah I was hoping there's an adapter that will allow TTL to work as well

Default ADP-MMA for auto-lock Sony flash

Sony makes an ADP-MMA adapter for you to use an older flash like a HVL-45AM or 58AM on newer cameras. If you have a 58AM, you may give it a try. This adapter works very well with my 43AM on my SLT-A58.
