    I just got my add-on hotshoe for my NEX 5N, that goes into the accessory port and is screwed in (neat little screw and screwdrivers are included). My SB-600 mounts on and locks in just fine, except then the flash is not fired ny the camera (everything in manual mode, which worked like a charm with everything I ever tried it on, including the tiny Oly ZX-1).

    Any idea as to why it doesn't work ??

    Thanks a lot.

    Is the flash setting switched on in the camera?

    Nope, nothing is showing :( If I manually depress the flash it goes off, but firing the shutter don't work. It's acting like it has no coupling with the camera whatsoever.
