I purchased this item and so far I'm really happy with it. However, I was wondering if there are any options for using it on the hotshoe on the G5 if there's no PC sync port on the G5.

I'm relatively new to external flash usage, so I wanted to know what my options were, if any. It functions well using the IR sensor, but not having to rely on that delay would be ideal.

Steve has a review for the Magneflash here: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_...neflash57.html

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

You need a hot shoe to PC adapter:

Much obliged, KCan.

I talked to a few people here at work, and they recommended the same thing.

Good to know that I can still use the MF57 effectively with the G5.
