I'm wondering if there is a way to use my Novatron studio flash kit with my newer Sxi. I used to be able to attach a sync cord to my Nikon FM2 but I'm not seeing any place to do the same with my Canon. Any suggestions would really be appreciated!
Thanks

Ok, maybe I'm getting anxious. Maybe no one knows the answer, but maybe someone knows where I might go to find it...maybe.

You can get a "Hot-Shoe to PC Adapter" for your XSi. Something like this:

PennySusan,

Welcome to POTN!

Please be patient with us. :D

Here's a hotshoe adapter that will work, from a vendor well-known and trusted by us here at POTN.

Whenever you ask a "where can I buy?" type question, it's a good idea to tell us where you live. This is a world-wide forum, and many vendors only ship to certain countries.

lol...you guys got me there! I'm sorry that I sounded rushed. I guess I was a bit but it's ok. Did my shoot with ambient light and did some indoors using the model lights. Came out fine. I'll check out your suggestions. Thanks again!
