Just got pocket wizards and have a question on K10D

So I tried putting it on the hotshoe and connecting cable supplied but I noticed it had nowhere to be connected to. Do I need some kind of adapter? If so, anyone have a link to the one needed? Thanks.

You got two, right? One, on the hot shoe-connects to rail and center pad of hotshoe; and second on/near the external flash, connects with a short piece of cable: 1/8 plug into PW and the other end to the flash.

I don't have PW brand but it sounds like the cord that came with my unit. The cord is for use with cameras that have a cold shoe instead of a hot shoe. You would then run the cable from the PW to the PC socket on the camera. Since the K10 has a hot shot you don't need the cable. Good thing because the K10 does not have a PC socket.

The cable included with the pocket wizards don't fit anything. It says it goes into my cameras PC connection but I don't see one?

Does the PW sit on your hot shoe? Does it have a little round contact on the bottom of it's foot? If the answer to both of these questions is yes than you do not need an adapter.

The radio trigger is supposed to sit on the hot shoe in the place of a flash unit. The flash unit is then attached to the flash unit. When the shutter in the camera is released (fired) it sends a signal to the hot shoe/trigger, which then sends a signal to the receiver/flash unit.

Yes I got a pair of PW+II.

Put one on the hotshoe of the camera.
Put the other near the flash unit and run cord from PW 'Flash' socket to flash socket---you may need a different cord.

Read the manual as to switch settings(the middle switch position=both!); turn everything on and start shooting.
