    Re: Advice for Handheld 4x5 and Flash Please..

    There's a shoe on top of my Crown Graphic. I don't recall seeing that it's a hot shoe, but it looks like one and tends to sporadically trigger my flash, so I put a cold shoe on top to insulate it. That might be a little tall with your typical flash unit, but it would work. I just use it to hold my trigger.

    You could just cut a piece of film to slip into your accessory shoe to insulate it.

    The shoe on the crown may be the mounting place for the optical viewfinder. Looks kind of like a cold shoe.

    I use a Metz 45 CT-1, they are cheap used, have a very accurate thyristor, and AA battery holders are still available at B&H. I generally bounce it into a Lumiquest which softens the light quite a bit. Check to see if your lens has a PC connector.
    Yes the shoe on the Crown Graphic are cold, so you need a cord.
