I picked up a Yongnuo YN-560 off ebay for a song along with this Minolta hot shoe adapter. It works great in manual mode on the NEX-7, but I'd like to do a bit of off camera flash action with this thing.
A few questions
1) Is that adapter "safe" to use on my NEX-7? I remember there were questions about firing manual flashes with some adapters.
2) What is the cheapest route I could go to wirelessly trigger the Yongnuo with the NEX-7? I'm not looking for TTL, just manual off camera flash. I realize the flash has the ability to be triggered, but will the pop-up on the NEX 7 do the job with a manual flash?
3) The 1/160th of a second thing doesn't apply to manual flash, right? That's only a TTL restriction?
Pardon my ignorance, I have almost no experience with flash since using my A900 a few years back, and that was all with Minolta/Sony HS flashes on TTL.
Also, are there any settings on the NEX I need have set?
