silly! Just construct the mirror out of reflective mylar, and tape it to
the camera with scotch tape or velcro. One guy I know on the Apisto list
actually attaches the remote sensor to his digital camera's flash, thus
getting a sort of "non-electrical hot shoe".
[Now if I could only figure out how to make a LANC-to-flash interface so I
don't have to shell $150 for the stupid Sony flash for my DV camera...
which would be a glorified slave sync as well.]
