I'm planning to make a small home "studio" so I do need more external flashes, umbrellas, softboxes, etc.

Currently I have A200 and 2500D Flash. I want to add 5600D in future, and another 2500D. So I need, if i've interpreted correctly, off camera shoe OS-1100, and off camera cable OC-1100. And in future I'll also need an splitter, to connect the third flash.

As I can see, some sites claim that these are compatible with A200, some not. I was unable to find on main site page with "supported accessories".

and also, theese things are damn expensive. I have some advanced knowledge in electronics, and I trully can say, that self cost of such devices shoul'd not be more than $3.

So, maybe someone made pinout of minolta hot shoe?

Yes, I've also found that contacts by myself. ButI want more, to get info how camera adjusts flash power, which signal enables AF assist lamp and more.

Anyway, thanks!
