Ideal for off camera flash
on 8 February 2012
Moving your external flash off the camera gives a more natural and desirable lighting effect. In order to do this though, you need a means to connect the flash to the camera hot shoe and that is what this cable does.
At 3m long, it is sufficient for most purposes, added to which, the cord retains the ETTL function of the flashgun. The attachment to the hot shoe has a knurled ring to allow it to be tightened securely. It also has a mount on top for a flashgun although this is not ETTL. The attachment for the flashgun has both a threaded hole to fit onto a tripod or light stand and a cold shoe to fit onto an umbrella mount.
The drawback with this product is that you will have a cable between the camera and the flashgun with all the potential for problems that creates. If you want to avoid these issues or need to move your flash further away then wireless triggers what you need. With most wireless triggers you will have to adjust your exposures manually.
