the other day I spent a load of cash (B&H order - still awaiting shipment) on wireless lighting for an upcoming wedding shoot (portraits). I've got a month to sort out the technical aspects of the system. I'm using the vivitar with flashzebra voltage adapter and elinchrom skyports. I've never handled this equipment before so I'm basing my order off of internet research. I can't afford any lost time in case my order is incomplete and I'm missing an adapter.
I want to connect:
[Vivitar 285HV] to [flash zebra adapter] to [Skyport receiver]
I'm not even certain how the receiver traditionally wires in to the flash itself. Am I missing an adapter somewhere in this chain?
I'm worried that I require one of these:
|IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!|
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE
... but I read that this is an "ebay adapter" and rather flimsy. If I do need one of these, I'm really hoping there is a more durable product available on the market!
