Sorry if my terminology is all wrong but I figured I would see if any of you folks have an easy solution for this. I have a wireless trigger for my lights....but if the camera is facing down I guess it loses contact with the hot shoe and it won't transmit the signal...sometime it will but mostly it won't...it I hold the transmitter down it will always work but I don't always have a free hand to do that...pretty frustrating sometimes. Once I broke off the blade of a utility knife in the gap and it worked great for a while..until it fell out. Anyone know and easy way to fix this? I am happy with my camera (Nikon D40X) and and everything except for this.
