Mounting V5 on Sony / Minolta camera & flash

To add a wireless flash to your current Sony setup with Cactus flash triggers, you will need to first connect the transmitter by using a hot shoe adapter:

If you are using dedicated Sony system flash units with the Minolta shoe, you will need an adapter for the flash:

But if you are using the new Sony flash with Multi-Interface shoe, its centre hot shoe pin location is slightly offset and does not work with any manual flash trigger including the Cactus V5.

On the other hand, if you are using a standard hot shoe you may connect your flash units directly to the receiver.
