Hi, is the Sony hotshoe on NEX 7/alpha series the same as Minolta? I have acquired a Vivitar 550FD dedicated Minolta flash and wonder if I'll need a hotshoe adapter?

Thanks
Tracy

Cool! So it should just fit?? I have never bought a flash so thought I'd give this one a go. :)

Mechanically fitting vs. functionally fitting will be the true test. Depending on how old it is, you may lose some functions. This will be interesting to follow, please let us know how it works!!

Thanks srhedd! I will let you know how I get on. I believe it's a legacy lens so have to manually set iso and aperture to match that of the camera. Should be fun :)
