I purchased a set of wire flash triggers + receivers to use with off camera flash ( on the recommendation of Musicman ) and whilst they have been fantastic I wanted to know if there was a tripod fixing mount. The receivers have 2 hot shoe fittings on them, one to go to the flashgun and the other - well it needs some sort of screw mount to fix it to the the tripod stand. If you ( John Musicman )is reading this he will understand what is required.

I suppose I could do a Heath Robinson job on them, but I would like a more professional fixing.

Hope you can help - many thanks

I simply use standard lighting tripod stands. They have a male thread on the top of them that's the right size to fit into the bottom of the iShoot receivers.

Hi John - I really must learn to read the manual! On checking of course there is - thanks a bundle for that.

By the way thanks for the info on the triggers they work a treat.

Many thanks again

Edit. Whoops, crossed with John. The newer iShoot receiver looks more fancy than mine, the transmitter is the same...

The thing dangling from my flash is a basic iShoot receiver

and this is my (modified) iShoot transmitter.

There are several other cheap manufacturers (try searching for PT-04 on ebay). Top of the pile are pocket wizards which cost an arm and a leg...

The iShoot set work fine for me..
