* FA-ST1AM Sync Terminal Adaptor for Sony ?100 D-SLR camera
* Links ?100 with external studio flashes for more versatile lighting effects
27th February 2007 - Now Sony ?100 D-SLR camera users can enjoy fantastic lighting results with a wide range of studio and professional flash systems.
Available throughout Europe from July 2007, the FA-ST1AM Sync Terminal Adaptor connects the award-winning ?100 to the vast majority of pro studio and location flash systems. The lightweight, battery-powered adaptor slides onto the accessory shoe of the ?100. Integrated in the adaptor is a protection circuit that protects the ?100 camera from the potential risk of high trigger voltage of external flash units. A PC terminal in the adapter links the ?100 with an external third party flash unit via a standard synch cable. This simplifies the creation of a wide range of professional lighting effects, allowing photographers to site their preferred flash unit in any off-camera position.
The new adaptor further extends the choice of flash and specialist lighting options for ?100 users. In addition to the D-SLR camera’s built-in flash, the ?100 system includes two dedicated ? external flash guns, a twin macro flash kit and ring light for still lifes and other close-up subjects.
As well as the ?100, the FA-ST1AM Sync Terminal Adaptor will also offer full compatibility with other future ? D-SLR camera models.
