I received a Profoto B1 today and the Air Remote - Canon TTL version.
I mate brought around his Sony A7 and we wanted to test the combo together but seemed to have trouble with the Sony and the Profoto remote.
It's the first time I've had a Profoto Air remote, before I've had PW's, and it seemed very stiff getting it on my Canon hot shoes, so maybe the remote itself is to blame.
However, I couldn't get the remote on the Sony. I think it's due to the hot shoe which, if you google the A7(R) hot shoe, has an extra bar across the front due to the accessory port.
This means the Profoto Air can't properly get into the hot shoe, most cameras only have the slidey bits on the side so the remote can get in fine, but with the Sony it can only get 90% of the way in and subsequently won't fire.
I tried some other flashes I only, I only had cheap/easy ones lying around, and they too wouldn't get fully in the hot shoe but would at least trigger.
Alas - the Profoto Air remote won't get in far enough to trigger - ergo seems to me to not be compatible with the Sony A7(R) line. This is a big big shame as I was hoping to use the A7R with the B1's.
Anyone come across this? Is there a trick to the Air remote I'm not getting? (It wasn't locked in case anyone asks) Or is it just not a viable combo?
