    It's for connecting to strobes with a PC-sync connector.

    I'm just wondering since, the end of this receiver can connect to my tripod, can i use my camera tripod instead of a light stand? I'll then find a way to attach an umbrella to it.

    lighting come from a higher angle will give a more natural look, and most tripod don't go too very high, if you are using this lighting set up on a person who is standing, the lighting effect will be very awful and eerie.

    try use proper light stand instead.
