What is the best way to mount a speed light with hot shoe connector to a tripod with 1/4 -20 thread?
I have tried those plastic cubes that provide a jack for wired triggering but they are too fragile and break easily. Is there a metal adapter out there? The speedlight will be radio-triggered so no need to access hot shoe terminals. Some good ideas would be appreciated.

Please, the smartass answers I can do without. I am reaching the age where carrying even a small bag is taking all the joy out going for a short walk along the fence lines. I find that no matter what camera and lens I take with me there will be a once in a lifetime shot that I have the wrong lens for. So if I had a bag with wheels I could drag along the extra lens, as far as the seat goes, this area in the last couple of years was crawling with ticks so I can't see myself setting in the grass trying to get a good Macro shot. I was just looking through the latest Photo news and I seen a picture of a camera bag with wheels, so maybe a seat is not to much to ask for. Thanks in advance. REJ.

Hi, I am new to this forum and enjoying it so far.
I am going to be buying a laptop PC (not MAC) and would like to get some suggestions about what laptops others are using. I do use photoshop cc and like compositing, focus stacking, exposure stacking etc so I need something with that capability. I shoot with a canon 5dM4 so file sizes are pretty large.
Thanks for the input.


Hi. I purchased a Dell Alienware 17in Laptop and have been very pleased with performance. Light room runs great on it.. Yes, it heavy, but I am not travelling with it. I got the most memory offered, SSD drive and a reg drive as well.. Not cheap...But..Hey..It works for what I want and need.. Good Luck with your choice..

Yesterday, I got some great advice on SD cards for my SX50 while traveling abroad. I'd probably prefer the Sony for traveling (and quality) if I could find one lens with a range similar to my Nikon lens (28-300 for example). Does Sony have an e-mount with a wide range? I don't want to change lenses. I'm tempted to just rely on my Nikon A900. Oh well, I've got some time to figure it all out. Maybe one of you will help make up my mind. Thanks for your input in advance.


18-200 is a big as it gets for the A6XX (APC) e-mount unless you get the 24-240 full frame E-Mount, it's around $1000

I have the Nikon D7100 and have recently purchased the Sony a6500.

I need your valued opinions on adapters and do they really work with the AF-S Nikon lenses? What I have read is sorta grim....but would like to hear from those that have actually used the adapters with these lenses and what was the outcome....

Thank you,


I purchased and returned the Fotodiox one just last week. It worked, but focusing is very slow. I guess if all you do is portraits and landscape where you can wait for it to focus it would be ok. It was not to my satisfaction so I returned it for full refund. And they are not cheap.. $350-$400 Hope this helps..

I use a Vello, aka Commlite on a Sony A7RII. Works great for me. AF is not quite as fast as with the Nikon, but then I'm not sure of AF speed with native Sony lenses.

Nikon lenses still have partially mechanical focusing systems, whereas Canon and Sony have fully electronic focusing systems, so there is a compatibility problem getting Nikon lenses to work well, even with adapters, on Sony E-Mount. Adapted Canon lenses work much better on Sony E-Mount. Apples and Oranges.


Thank You!!

Search Tony Northrop's YouTube channel for smart adapters. He had mediocre performance with Nikon glass on Sony bodies.
