    Short, but does the job

    posted by RicardoConsonni on 04/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Cheap, well built, works as expected - Enables more creative lighting techniques, taking your flashhead off the camera. - Looks and feels very well-made. - Packaging is excellent, with silica gel wrapped with each terminal, inside individual plastic bags.
    Cons:
    - Very short. It's just over 30cm coiled, and barely stretches to 1m. You will have to uncoil the cord to avoid damaging it if ...

    Does what it should

    posted by Kolero on 08/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Connects easily to camera (450D) and flash (430 EXII). On first hookup, the flash did not fire (in Av mode). Then I realized that I had the flash side of the cord backwards. OOPS! Now it works flawlessly. Note the I can take a side-shot of my bookcase (f...
    Cons:
    The supplied cord is rather short. With the camera and flash each on tripods, you can get just less than 2 feet (60 cm) between...

    Okay but had a major problem

    posted by joksak on 04/25/2010

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This cord was very attractive in it's price range. There are similar products from Canon and Nissin but they are way more expensive. This is a nice cable. It seems very durable, quick-lock is okay and design is almost like the original one..
    Cons:
    .. but it does not seem to work with my EOS 550D. Don't know why. Flash works on the hot shoe on-camera and this cord works at ...

    Worth of buying

    posted by ptpl2k on 04/13/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - really good quality (no cheap feeling at all) - good price (almost 3x cheaper than original Canon's version) - very easy to use and very handy - everything fits perfectly in hot shoe - no communication problems between body and flash unit
    Cons:
    Not found so far even if I'm using it pretty often.

    Buy It

    posted by bibivallim on 04/09/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It is simple and easy to setup and use. I have been using this product to do macro photography where the light is not coming from above and this cord allows me to move the flash around without a fixed harness. Very sturdy build, however, a little more cord ...
    Cons:
    The cord is too short.

    Don't buy

    posted by bloodypixy on 03/29/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    If this one works, it should be a good cord to buy. The price is better than most of the branded cord. The length is enough for you to raise the flash with one arm.
    Cons:
    but mine doesn't fit to my hot shoe, I have a canon 40d, I also tried it on canon 5d mark II. The connector for the camera hot ...

    Just works!

    posted by thetron on 11/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Full ETTL support. Gets your flash off the camera. Locks well on camera hot shoe. Treads for mounting flash on a tripod. Good price.
    Cons:
    Cord is a bit stiff and not as stretchy as I had hoped for. Cord could be longer.

    Great deal... This thing works great!

    posted by autodub on 04/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Works just like when the flash is on the camera. Metering works properly. No sync related problems. Excellent build quality. Quick release is handy for attaching to camera. Tripod screw mount is handy for mounting to second tripod.
    Cons:
    Cord could be longer, but then it would get in the way for flash-bracket use.

    Great product!

    posted by compucat on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    First of all, it works! Good build quality. Solid. Both the plastic and metal finish are perfect. I don't own the Canon OC-E3 therefore I cannot do the comparison. But this one looks and feels very Canon. And, it is (much) cheaper then the Canon one.
    Cons:
    Short. It is about 40cm not extended and about 1.3m when pulling the elastic wire to its full extend. If you want you can find ...
