Thread: PC-sync?? TTL sync??

    Default PC-sync?? TTL sync??

    Greetings all dai gors~!! I would like to know more about PC-sync connections for flashes... and if they support TTL connections.. would like to know more about them, and if possible, the cost for the cables =)..

    and also, if the PC-sync cables "workability" are dependant on the brands they are from (e.g. Canon PC-sync cord not compatible with Nikon flashlights and vice versa...)

    my setup is a Canon G6 + a couple of 540EZ's. I would like to use off camera synching using my G6 using PC-sync.. would like to know how this is possible..

    Thank you in advance for your valuable inputs!!

    PC-sync connection does not provide TTL function between camera and flash.
    and it is universal, you can connect any camera to any flash unit if both have male and female pc sync port.

    if you want TTL function, you have to use TTL cord connect the camera and flash via hotshoe, and this does not compatible between different makes of cameras.

    For multiple off camera flash units set up, the best, cheapest and most reliable set up is using manual mode on flash, you can connect your camera with one flash via pc sync cord or wireless radio trigger, and the rest of flash units on slave mode via built in slave, slave adapters or additional radio receivers.
