Sorry for not making myself clear on the hot shoe. I created a shoe mount off to the side of the camera. It is secured by the tripod mount. Here is a very crude drawing of my external flash mount. I'll take some pix when I get home and post. -garman

Snapped some pictures of my S1 IS using the Agfa1280, All the doo-dads included. Still trying to find a way to add the photo assist lamp. I Have the lamp, but it looks like I'm out of space.
So let me introduce to you the NEW S2 IS!!!! :lol:

The lens is a 2x tele from vivitar. I think the total zoom is 20x or 760mm -garman

How do you use that flash? What did you make the mount with?

pagerboy, in the above photo (top of thread) on top of the slave the flash is attached and on the bottom of the slave it attaches to the mount. The slave is triggered by S1 internal flash. The flash mount is a piece of steel I found at home bent it to a "Z" formation and welded the bent areas for addded support. The hot shoe is screwed and glued to the metal bracket. I also have a small wire hooked from the bracket to the neckstrap mount. cheers -garman

Very nice setup, is the u-shaped metal steel or ??

I saw the small wire on the bracket, just curious as to what purpose it serves.

Thanks, The bracket is made of steel. "U" shape device.... I guess you mean the shoe mount. Thats plasic. All I could find. The small wire is a (paper clip) this to prevent the bracket from swinging forward. Also provides more stability.

Hey Garman, it is not 20X zoom. The zoom remains 10X but the focal length range is changed by 2X, that is, instead of 38-380 mm, it becomes 76-760 mm.:P

Yeah Wise, your probably right. I'm just throwing numbers. As I look at your math, it makes more sense. Anyway, Is the 760mm figure correct? -cheers
