    Hi all, some kit pics of the NEX wearing my newly acquired Vivitar converter, FD 50mm f/1.8 and Sunpak gx8r ring flash.

    Tell me about the ring flash. Are you going to use it with a slave mounted on the Sony shoe? Or does it have a built in slave? Sorry for the dumb questions but I am curious about how the contraption works. :confused: Thanks!

    I'm not sure yet ! My plan is to use a Sony shoe adapter and mount the flash module directly onto the NEX. The Sunpak has an external power pack so the weight shouldnt be too much for the NEX.
