    Default Where to get PC flash cords for flash syncing?

    Hi guys

    I'm trying to rig a TLR to fire my hot-shoe flashes but i can't seem to find the right cord! For instance, the cord for sale from tagotech http://store.tagotech.com/product_in...products_id=72
    has a "Mono Plug on 1 end, and a Sync Plug" on the other. I can't use that I need a cable with "sync. plugs" on both ends!

    Does anyone know where i can buy one of those... and for how much?


    Thanks in advance!!

    i don't think those cables are readily available. i have asked here before. i think u gotta order them or use an adapter for the monophone to trigger the flash.

    you can try flashzebra.com

    I've ordered other wires from them and the quality is good.

    ebay also, but not as solid as the ones from flash zebra.

    Are PC - PC sync cords really getting harder to find? Better stock up on them!

    They used to be relatively common. I have a 9ft long PC-PC sync cord in front of me right now (and a few others lying around somewhere). It's marked "Konica Photo Accessories" -- I must have bought it ard 3 yrs ago, probably at Ruby or Cathay. You might want to try them.

    male pc to female pc sync should be hard to find, as this is consider extension cable, even Nikon also has their own for their flash.
    got it from Cathy photo and Ruby photo before and they should still have it now.

    YES! This is exactly what I need

    Length isn't an issue cos i'll be mounting the TLR and flash on the same bracket anyway, haha.

    haha, but these kinda things can exactly get spoiled, right? Easy to misplace and lose though
