    Ideas for my problem ( cold shoe/accessory mount)

    So my 4x5 has no cold shoe or accessory shoe. I am using a 2.5mm to pc sync cable ( seems like these come in only 12inch lengths.) to connect it to my wireless flash trigger BUT there is nowhere to mount the flash trigger. Any ideas for this? Hopefully something not invasive. Maybe a clamp for a tripod? Do they sell those? Thank you. Camera is a wisner technical 4x5.

    Double-adhesive hook-and-loop mounts would work fine.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Rubber bands are less intrusive, and are much quieter than brass bands.

    I used a plastic cell phone holder clipped onto the tripod leg (it was intended to be mounted on bicycle handlebars). Cost about $12 on ebay.
