You'll need a "hot-shoe" to PC cord adapter such as theses:

The camera is then set on manual for proper X-sync shutter speed and then it's your choice of aperture / studio strobe combination

Hello, thanks for the reply to my question.... Which leads me to another question. In your reply, you sent me a link to a Nikon AS-15 pc sync terminal adapter, Will this Nikon adapter work with my Canon G5 and allow me to use my studio lights with the G5 ??

yeap!

... so does this Olympus: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=193114&is=REG

... or this Sigma: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=263884&is=REG

or this generic: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=89982&is=REG

-> basically the circuit is "closed" (ie an electronic switch) inside the camera connecting the center terminal of the hot-shoe to its side rail. When this happens it will trigger the studio lights
