Hi, people,

I thought of an other solution for the incompatible external flash. I mean incompatible because of lack of a hot shoe or synchronisation, or too high a flash trigger voltage.

Have a look at:

Any comments, suggestions or improvements?

Hi E Pericoloso Sporgersi,
About the diaphragm idea to “reduce” the salve cell sensitivity, I am a bit surprised to see it works for you, may be this camera does a preflash really at “low power” .
Most of flashes “reduce the power” by reducing the “on time” of the bulb , this mean this idea could not work well.
But your idea is indeed the cheapest “slave preflash adapter” ever seen

About the led ring , this is great. Another member here have his home make led ring also.
You may want to add a schematic to your page to be complete ?
