    I got the Photoflex softbox which is pretty sweet except for one thing - With the 540ez hooked up to the cactus trigger and put on the lightstand it doesnt fit in the hole of the softbox, its slighty too high up. I still use it like htis and it SEEMS to work but... Is there anything that can be done besides hook the catcus up via a pccord (Which id love to do except the 540 doesnt have a pc connection)

    the hotshoe PC adapter > *.

    F mounting the cactus wizards any other way. They're waaay to flimsy and awkward.

    Yah i really hate doing that. I'm finally getting a NICE setup (IE i have sandbags now instead of using my camera bag :mamoru: and I ditched my shitty umbrellas and only have on shitty lightstand left). The last chink in my armor is mounting the triggers to the flash to the stand.

    Whered you go the adapter? How much?
