JSC-6 Sony Auto-lock Accessory Shoe (AAS) or Minolta iISO (intelligent ISO) Flash Shoe to PC Sync Adapter
A hot shoe is a mounting point on the top of a camera to attach a flash unit. The hot shoe "adapter" attaches to the camera hot shot allowing use of an external flash and/or sync cable which attaches the Mecha Controller to the hot shoe adapter enabling control of some of the camera operations such as shutter. These are very easy to use just slide the adapter into the camera hot shoe to convert it to a PC sync output.
Shutter Release Confirmation Feedback is provided from the Hot-shoe. MECHA receives feedback from the camera hot-shoe during the image capture and uses it to automatically adjust the exposure delays before advancing to the next task. This makes sure all exposures are complete while idle time is minimized. Some cameras may disable flash trigger when electronic shutter is used in which case no signal to hot-shoe means shutter release confirmation will not work. Use mechanical shutter instead.
