Slave flash firing thingy!

Plug your external flash into it using a cable, and when you fire your main/on-board flash this will trigger the external flash via it's in-built photo sensor.

From the days when flash was connected via cable or hot-shoe.

Any connectors? In or out? Maybe a photosensor used to trigger a slave flash?

I have one of those somewhere in my collection of goodies! Would be safe to use with the old flash guns with high trigger voltage

Well obviously its a flash slave but the case gives it away as one made by Garrard, Jewllers by Royal Appointment to HM Queen Elizabeth II
