      If you are using Elinchrom lighting system with Pocket Wizard Transceivers, this is a must have. You will not be able to fire your light without it. Works as it should and is well built. It is a pricy little cord, for what it is.

      Comments about PocketWizard MA1 Elinchrom to Miniphone Cable:

      Finally picked this up to wirelessly sync my Ranger set up. I was either using a sync cord or syncing by sight with another flash, which worked fine, just not easily in all scenarios. So, I got this and it works as expected. Free's me up and allows me to be a little more creative with the placement of my lights, as I no longer have to deal with a limited distance from my lights or working within line of sight.

          I use this cable to connect my PocketWizards to my Ranger units, and it works great! For my first Ranger unit I mistakenly bought the longer cable to connect the Wizards, and it was a pain, but this is a good length--easy to store and use.

                Got this cable because I already have pocket wizards to control my strobes and this will be used for my Elinchrom Ranger RX AS pack. A little pricey but much cheaper than in Canada where they are asking around $80+tax. Works perfectly.

                  This works very well when connecting a pocket wizard to Elinchrom studio lights of any kind. They work like a charm. No issues . . .

                        I use the cord to fire the Ranger RX/AS. I wish Elinchrom would have kept the design simple on the unit. Having a special jack...requires a special cord... which brings in more money for the company. Makes sense for the business end... the user has to pay the [$] for a simple cord. The cord works as advertised... expensive but useful. No issues while connected to the pocket wizard. Hatch
