    Credo/IQ3/Stackshot/SK ES - triggering

    So I'm trying to rig up a stackshot to my Credo/Actus/SK ES controller and it appears that both the stackshot and the controller employ the same port on the Credo back. I really don't want to manually fire after every movement, so I'm trying to figure out a workaround, however messy that might be.

    Assuming the Stackshot gives the fire command - if that's plugged into the back and the flash sync port on the back is connected to a Profoto Air transceiver.. is there a way to connect the output of the transceiver to the PC cable input on the shutter controller?

    Or will I get black frames..

    Not sure how to go about this :/

    Yep. Would have the same effect I think.

    I use one of those in my make shift wake up cable. I have it wired to a remote + lens sync cord.
