Since you asked....

Put it on a cheap strobe bracket so that your left hand both holds the
handgrip and can reach the focus knob. Now attach a cable release. You can
either wind and fire with the right hand, or attach the release to the grip
and focus/fire with the left. This is how I use the Rflex when time is of
the essence.
