Hot Shoe

A hot shoe is a u-shaped mounting point, usually found on the top of 35mm SLR cameras. This feature provides a slide-in mounting of small, battery operated flash units. In addition, it provides an electrical circuit connection which fires the flash when the shutter is tripped. If your camera does not have the necessary PC connection to wire our flash unit sync cord, you can purchase a hot shoe adapter piece, which fits in your hot shoe, and allows the sync cord to be plugged into your camera.
