    Hi Guys,
    That should be first post for me here.
    So i have lots of questions round my new toy (Nex 5R) and your help will be helpful .

    A simple question, Can an external flash be connected with Nex 5R camera ? And how can be done ? (because of lack of horseshoe)

    Thanks in advance

    There are some 3rd party NEX smart accessory port to hotshoe adapters readily available on the market. The catch is you can only use manual flash mode, no TTL mode support. I have a JJC MSA-10 adapter for my NEX-5N and I still can't figure out why sometimes the flash fires and sometimes it don't. Perhaps I just got a bad one.

    Think you got a bad one or you haven't set the camera to " fill flash" I have been using the same adapter on my 5n and it has fired 100% of the time, and I have taken thousands of flash pictures.

    Oh !
    An adaptor of course ! That is smart tho.
    At least a few trials and errors and i'll get the right exposure.

    Thanks guys.
