Hello to all.

I have a pair of pocket wizards and would like to find a proper hot shoe I can use to flash trigger wireless with my pocket wizards. The flash using is a Canon 580 EX mounted on a tripod. Thank you all for your help in advanced.

I did find one in amazon but not sure if that is the right one I need.

Hi, The Pixel TF-321 (for Canon) is perfect only in use on a Canon body's hot-shoe to provide a pc outlet while maintaining ETTL II functionality from the camera's hot-shoe (on a Canon body that doesn't already have a separate pc-outlet).

The Pixel TF-321 is completely useless when underneath an off-camera Speedlite. You were right to ask! If I understand you correctly, you want a 'Speedlite pc hot-shoe adaptor' not a 'Camera hot-shoe pc adaptor'. With the non-TTL PWs, you only need the central pin (& rail).

That is correct OceanRipple, I am looking to use for off camera. With many choices I have seen I am not sure which one is the correct one I need which is why I asked. Thanks for the help.
