Is my camera compatible with Inspiron lighting products?

However, some Sony/Minolta cameras have a non-standard hotshoe and an adapter will be needed to allow these cameras to operate with a radio trigger.

It all sounds too good to be true. What's the catch?
We never compromise on quality and service. At the moment we only sell direct. That means our products come directly from the manufacturer to end customers, i.e. photographers like you. We don't have massive overheads nor dealer mark-ups; all those savings are passed on to the customer.
Are spare parts available if I need them one day?
Of course. We stock a full range of Inspiron spare parts, from the largest light stands, to flash tubes, bulbs and right down to the smallest fuse. Spare parts can be ordered from us directly. We deliver within a couple of days, subject to stock levels, all from Canada.
What aftersales service do you provide?
All Insprion products come with a 12 months manufacturer's return to base warranty. Furthermore, all our products arrive with a "30-day cooling off period", within which customers can return the purchased goods for full refund. After the warranty expires, we continue to service Inspiron products for a fee. Our service centre is based in Canada.
