Although the Pocket Wizard system allows you to fire your strobe from your camera without a wire between the two, the receiver still needs a wire connection to your power pack or monolight.

If you have all the sync cords you need, this PC Female to Miniphone plug adapter is all that is needed to connect your new Pocket Wizard Plus or Receiver to whatever PC Sync cord you have.

At the advice of a BH technician, I picked up a couple of these to use as backups if I ever lost a sync cable or one became damaged. This product allows you to effectively convert the PocketWizard output to a PC female. I did a shoot with a friend that had totally different strobes then I did, but because of this adapter, I was able to use her strobes sync cable with my PW's.

A must have for any serious photographer working with remote lighting.

I have been in electronics for over 20 years and these adapters are the most expensive adapters I have ever had to buy. Had to buy to make my pocket wizards that came with pc female ends to work with my photogenic strobes. They were cheaper than the whole cable assembly that already had the right ends on them.

            Comments about PocketWizard PC Female to Miniphone Adapter:

            I was told by another camera store that in order to use the new Pocket Wizard Plus II Transceivers, I would have to replace my current strobes with new ones because the Plus II would not connect to my current strobes. B&H offered a low cost adapter solution that has worked great everytime with my new Plus II Transceivers. I may eventually replace my aging strobes, but these adapters allowed me to first make sure I could get the range and positioning that I needed with a top brand transceiver first.

                  I recently purchased some Alienbees B800s for my home studio and discovered I needed this adapter to make them fire (cable-free) with my Pocket Wizard Plus II's. I think the price is a little extreme for this tiny adapter, but if you want to move about your studio freely without having your camera connected to one of your flash units by the supplied cable, it's a must have item.

                  Comments about PocketWizard PC Female to Miniphone Adapter:

                  This adapter is necessary in order to get your Pocket Wizard's (I have the PLUS II transceivers) to work as receivers on AlienBees strobes. The connection goes: miniphone into back of strobe light-miniphone into port of Transceiver. Not sure about other strobes.

                  This should be an included accessory with the PW's but it's not.

                  There are other cable options im sure.

                  It does it's job, and does it well. Not the highest seeming build quality, but I have yet to have oone break or fail

                        As long as you have at least one of these little adapters in your bag, you will always be able to connect your PocketWizard to any flash, as long as that flash has a cable that will connect to a standard PC connection. Although the PC connector is not the best, sometimes it's the only choice you have!

                              I owned two of these and they both shorted out on me. I was connecting a Norman portable strobe and battery kit with a pocket wizard. After they stopped working you could look very closely and see some melted plastic. I talked to one photographer that used them flawlessly with his 400W alien bees. But why buy something that may or may not work with what you're using?

                                  Comments about PocketWizard PC Female to Miniphone Adapter:

                                  At the advice of a BH technician, I picked up a couple of these to use as backups if I ever lost a sync cable or one became damaged. This product allows you to effectively convert the PocketWizard output to a PC female. I did a shoot with a friend that had totally different strobes then I did, but because of this adapter, I was able to use her strobes sync cable with my PW's.

                                  A must have for any serious photographer working with remote lighting.

                                        I use this adapter on the end of a sync cord to connect one of my pocket wizard tt5's to my main monolight. Not much to say about it becuase it's a pretty simple device. It does the job it's supposed to do.
