    If you would be so kind to take 60 seconds to watch this vid and then if you have any suggestions for me that'd be great. I'm looking for a way to secure my sb-600 to my v4 receiver without fearing that it will fall. Thanks.

    Gaffers tape.

    Sorry to say....The super bright carpet behind your speedlight makes your video nearly useless.

    I don't understand why the PC port adapter is necessary.

    Doesn't the V4 receiver have a hot shoe that will fire a strobe? And doesn't the SB-600 fit that hot shoe?

    I'm sure there's a problem with that straightforward setup, or you'd just use it, but I've no actual hands-on with either the V4 or the SB-600, and I'd like to understand.
