Ronnie, you can use slave with PC terminal, then connect the terminal on the slave to the studio flash using standard PC cable.
I use Nissin slave, it has a PC terminal there.

Hi tsdh, I just want to be sure that the slave flash you mentioned has this terminal:



Ninelives, is that a picture of an off-camera shoe cord? Does it have the flash sync terminal like the picture above?

Yes it is. Then I use a standard PC cable to connect to another flash without hot-shoe.
Sometimes I use two slaves, connected in paralel to trigger 3 flash units. All connected using cables and PC connector, no hot-shoe.

You might want to know that most studio flashes have built-in slaves, and no cable connection is then needed to fire them. Your on-camera flash can be used to trigger the studio flashes as long as they don't pre-flash.

Thanks ckiang. Today I have seen a hot shoe/adapter that comes with a external flash terminal.
