The adapter fits snuggly into the hot shoe. I leave it on the camera all the time; partly because it doesn't look out of place and I would lose it if I took it off the camera. It's pretty small.
* Support Nikon flash gun which trigger on hot shoe, also support ITTL.
* Support flash gun which is not Nikon brand.
* Available to control flashguns or studio lights through PC socket.
>>> THAT IS WRONG.<<< It was incorrectly copied from the description for the TF-322 adapter for Nikon.

Aside from that, this adapter works fine IF YOU UNDERSTAND ITS LIMITATIONS.
A) It will allow you to adapt a flash unit with the Minolta iISO or the Sony Auto-lock Accessory Shoe sold from ~1987 to ~2012 onto a camera with a standard ISO-518 hot shoe.
B) The camera will be able to fire the flash, but because the TTL lines are not connected, will not be able to control the flash exposure or motorized zoom. You will need to control those manually on the flash unit.
C) This adapter will fit on a Sony camera with the new Multi Interface shoe (sold since ~2013), but is not fully compatible because the TTL signals are not connected. The Sony ADP-MAA should be used instead.Sony ADPMAA Shoe Adaptor for Mi Shoe, (Black)
D) It is not documented anywhere, but the Sony HVL-F42AM will not work with this adapter without jumping through some extremely inconvenient hoops. Because some of the signals are not routed through the adapter, the F42AM will not wake up and therefore will not fire. The F42AM can be woken up by first attaching it directly to a Sony camera that is powered on. It can then be transferred to the non-Sony camera with the TF-324 adapter and made to fire prooperly. However, as soon as the flash goes into sleep mode after about 5 minutes, this process must be repeated.
Fortunately, the HVL-F43AM and -F58AM do not require this awkward procedure and will work in a straightforward manner.
E) I don't know how common this is, but the metal base plate on my unit was a little too wide. I had to use GREAT force to get it into the slot on my Panasonic FZ1000, and I was afraid I was going to break either the adapter or the camera trying to get it back off. Other reviewers have mentioned similar problems. I carefully filed the nickel plating off the sides of the base plate and was able to mount it to the camera quite snugly.
I do have the Pixel TF-325 to use canon and other flash on my Sony A65 and it works great. I just tried stacking the two adapters on top of each other to run the signal through the TF-324 sony contacts and then back to through the TF-325 standard contacts. It worked Fine! It fired the flash both from the camera and from the radio slave.
So it seems the adapter is fine and the problem is in the Sigma flash. If I get another sony mount flash, I will try it again. I am giving a middling rating because I can't tell for sure if the adapter will work on other Sony mount flash units.
Currently I own four Minolta 3500xi's and two 5400HS flashguns, and they were collecting dust, when I found the TF-324. I am very pleased to be able to use them again.
Quality-wise, I'd say they're pretty rugged, and they fit tightly into my Canon cameras (30D, 40D and 5DmkII), but like another reviewer has noticed, there is a slight play when attaching a Minolta flash to the TF-324. Looking it over, it shouldn't pose a problem as it doesn't move much, but I can see why some would be concerned. As far as I can tell, the TF-324 locks onto my Canon, and the flash locks onto the TF-324, so they will NOT fall off inadvertently. I feel confident with these things mounted, walking around during a shoot. Mind you, I rarely ever use my flash on camera, but on the rare occasion is what I mean.
As noted, the TF-324 will not pass TTL through the unit, so you have to be comfortable using your flashes in manual mode.
There is a threaded PC-sync jack on the front of the unit, but I don't use it, so I can't comment on that, but theoretically you can fire the Minolta/Sony flashguns remotely with wires if you need to.
They seem very well made and robust, but if they break down in the future, I will come back and update this review. Let's hope I don't have to.
