Well so much for preparations, i went thru all this crap to travel to NYC to do a photoshoot for my friend and i forgot ONE DAMN PIECE. Seriously, I could cry right now.
I dont have the money to overnight a new one.

Does anyone know if I can get this peice at any regular camera store? I am in Queens for the weekend, and am more ore less screwed without it.

They shut for easter. I'm on the other side of the world and even I know that :p

Can i use a regular hot shoe with a pc sync for wireless triggering on alien bees?

I'm confused.. what equipment do you have?

If you are triggering Alienbees wirelessly.. I assume you have a CST and a CSRB? You only need a hotshoe for a CST to function.. no PC cord required (on the camera body).

I have wiress trigger for the flash 480exii (no pc sync on it)
and the remote for my camera. I need tge shoe so i have something to connect the trigger to- cablewise

Ah.. understood. I guess you need to find that hotshoe to pc sync cord adapter ASAP.

Well, i guess 42nd Street Photo might have something to help me. I really hope so.

Maybe try posting a "holy crap please help" ad to the NYC Craigslist asking for a local generous photog to lend you his/hers?
