Does anyone have experience of using the PCT-100 flash shoe adapter with the A200?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"If so, does it accept standard flash cable input and does it work well?

I would like to buy one so that I may continue to use my old flash unit. I suppose that this would be much cheaper than buying the dedicated Minolta flash unit...but I'm not sure.

Lists it as an accessory for the A1/A2 so it should work for the A200 also...


May not serve your purpose but I use the FS-1100 for my older flash and to connect to my radio strobe on my A2. Works fine for both.

Hello, this is my first message as I'm new to this site. I am wondering exactly how I can set up my HS3600D flash unit to work with a bracket to help with background shadows and red eye? My A200 and my flash unit neither have a pc connection. What are my options? Thanks.

You have to use both OC-1100 and OS-1100 to made an extension with all electrical control connections (the PC connection solution just provide the triggering signal, nothing else).
Then you can mount the OS-1100 on bracket if you like.
