        Comments about PocketWizard HSFM3 Flash Sync Cable (3'):

        The main reason I purchased this cable was the fact my Nikon SB-700 does not have a sync connector other than the hotshoe. I have tried other hotshoe adapters, but none would allow the speedlight to lock into the connector - this allowed the speedlight connection to slip out. (at the worst times) This cable will allow the speedlight locking pin to work! As a plus, the actual wire cable is VERY flexible and easy to handle. The 1/4-20 mount on the bottom makes it easy to use with lightstands and umbrella mounts. A very quick and easy solution to using radio triggers with speedlights. It also worked well with a 45 year old Vivitar 283!

          I like having the cord and hot shoe all in one so there are fewer connections to worry about.

          I gave 4 stars versus 5 only because I think the product is overpriced for what it is (yet I'm the one who bought it).

            I bought it a long with a Plus X Transceiver for my Canon 430ex II. The 430ex II latches on the hot shoe securely. The bottom also latches to Vello Universal Accessory Shoe Mount securely as well.

            This hot shoe was exactly what I was looking for. It is made well and works for my off camera flashes perfectly.

              Very easy to use with one minor design flaw for my sb-600. The flash will fire on its own if you lock the flash to the mount. So if you leave it unlocked it works just fine just more room to break your flash.

                  This is marginally more expensive than the off-brand alternatives from impact etc., but so very, very much better.
                  I implore anyone looking for a hotshoe PW cable to buy this one -- it is more than worth the price difference.

                    I purchased these to attach my Pocket wizards to my Canon 550EX, 580EXII and 420EX flash units. The quality is excellent and these adapters fit the flash perfectly and are very snug. Cable quality is excellent. No cheapness here.
