Hot-shoe

An accessory shoe on a camera that has electrical contacts to trigger and synchronise a flashgun when the camera's shutter fires. More sophisticated cameras have several connection pins for advanced communication between the camera and flash. As well as setting the camera’s correct shutter speed, these dedicated pins can also control exposure and focusing modes.
