    I've just received the HVLF43M (not HVLF43AM, think the difference is the former includes an LED video light, latter does not) and I didn't realise it wasn't compatible with the hot shoe on my NEX 7. Can anyone advise which hot shoe adapter I need in order to get this working with my NEX 7 on camera? I have an event this weekend I plan on using it at so am hoping to order online today, thanks!

    Thanks Jose, there's a few different adapter options out there it seems so getting confirmation on which is the right one is very useful, thanks!

    No problem - it is a bit of a minefield with the Smart VS Accessory-Lock VS Multi-Interface across the NEX range!

    Hopefully multi interface (as your flash is) is here to stay and will cause less confusion on newer bodies in the future (although smaller bodies will struggle to fit it on... So there may be a call for a mini version of some kind).

    At least Accessory-Lock<>Multi-Interface is back/forward compatible with all the control pins being mapped through for TTL etc.
