    arent cables and wires the same thing?

    its called a pc sync just fyi, there should be a port on your camera, last time i checked my old 20D had one...
    alternatively get some cheapo pt-04 triggers and you can run around and trigger them wirelessly

    I think it is not call a PC syn cord coz one end connect to my camera the other end does not connect to a PC. The other end's jack is more like a mono jack head... anyway. I got the supplier who carrys it... so not a prob now. Thankz for ur input

    general term is strobe sync cable, it can be pc to pc, pc to mono jet, pc to mini jet, pc to elinchrom, with male to male, male to female, female to female blar blar blar.

    you want to proper name/term of the sync cable for your particular brand of strobe? just refer to your brand's catalogue
