Thanks, Jim. That is certainly a lot cheaper than the Minolta Adapter which runs $89,and thatisn't worth it. Do you know if Nick's adapter would work with my Sunpak 433D?
The reason the Minolta PCT-100 is so expensive is because it has built in Voltage Protection (for use with older strobes). It's only for use with PC Sync Cord attached flashes (it doesn't give you a hotshoe).

Nick's adapter does not have built in voltage protection. The Minolta FS1100 has no protection either (the FS1100 can give the 5D an ISO standard hotshoe).

Chances are, the trigger voltage is relatively low with your Sunpak (most Sunpaks like it are). But, I'd measure it to be sure.

You'd need to make sure the foot you have for it will work with an ISO standard hotshoe if you go with Nick's adapter (the same applies to the use of a Minolta FS1100).

I use the 433D with a 5D and FS1100 with no problems. Once you figure out which settings you like it's easy to use. Very similar to using it on the Panny. I use it an Omnibounce and get great results.:|
