GRD II and MicroSync


New Member

GRD2 autofocusing in macro mode, iso 80, F5.6, 1/60 of a sec. 580EX strobe, synced through wein HSH adaptor and MicroSync radio slave. Flash was about four meters away (actually in the next room!). Some Flickr users reported the MicroSync not being compatible with the GRD. Indeed it did not work out of the box due to the transmitter's metal base touching the dedicated contacts in the GRD2 hot shoe. A tiny black electrical tape square added to the MicroSync transmitter base with a little hole to only allow the central contact to function, did the trick...
