Had a reply from the seller/maker believes the cable will fit I hope he is right i willletyou know 😜I bought one. It seems my LBA has turned into a ABA (accessory buying addiction). Mmm flu card and lightning trigger this week. Eeeeeek.

Hi,
I have an AEO MT-Pro 4.0 that I used the other night on my K3. It connects with the same cable that also suits some Canon cameras.
Regards.

The thing that appealed to me is Aussie made by an Astronomy photographer have read really good reviews on other sights about it. Must admit we had a ripper here on Tuesday Night in Toowoomba Qld so it got me motivated. The guy is lovely to talk to as well awesome customer service so far 😀 as soon as I get a chance either fireworks or storms I will stick them up for critique and let you know how I went. Found one in USA and nearly $400 US dollars but must say it looked awesome. For $100 I think this one will do the trick nicely. I know you can get them much cheaper but I hear the quality somewhat dwindles so we will see

I have seen them for as little as $20 on eBay but then you have to buy the cable so....... But as I said happy to buy Aussie made where I can if available and I don't think $100 is too bad either 😀

Hi gang the trigger arrived today and true to word the cable works fine👍have mucked around somewhat and the trigger seems to be super sensitive to light just what you need for this sort of thing 😜 so now praying the clouds that are building up are leading to a spectacular light show so I can share some with you. Btw the rain cover sent with it is a real beauty.

my mates idea to taking lightning stuff. do it manually.
"Way I do it- use human eyes... put on 30second .. if lightning- put on lens cap"
he took this on a Sigma SD1

Looks lovely but I was very unsuccessful last time I tried it that way I reackon practice probably makes perfect doing it that way.
