Exclamation hotshoe for canon?

So, I"m back!!! my lights from backdropsource are still! giving me trouble! the remote and slave lose battery life after each session. because there is no ON OR OFF BUTTON! so I'm thinking of buying a hot shoe adapter for my canon xti2 any recommendations?! are they all compatible?

Re: hotshoe for canon?

My radio triggers don't have on/off switching, but the receivers do. The batteries last for years though.

By adaptor, if you mean a new trigger, I don't think they are available on their own and the four sets that I have are not compatible with each other or the system at my camera club.

Re: hotshoe for canon?

Yeah I got mine from backdrop source. And I've contacted them many times to try and get this straight. Before I had issues with them not triggering. Now the slave dies after every session bc there isnt a on/off switch. I was thinking an adapter might work bc then I could just plug in the cord they sent me. I just want lights that work every time... I'm so discouraged. Thank u for all your help by the way
