      use this with Pocket wizards plus 2. Works well with vivitar flash (283). Mainly I use this as a backup light source, the cable makes for an inexpensive backup when not using a Cannon Speedlite. Hopefully this cable outlives the original PC connecting wire that came with the PW+2, as that cable has died after less a year of intermittent use. I've only used this cable a handful of time, so you can assume no additional post means its still working for whenever you may be reading this review.

        I use several of these cables to connect my PW PlusII's to my Vivitar 285HV's. I have not had any connection issues yet. Connections are snug for shooting in moderate winds outdoors.

          I can leave my studio lights at home and set up my vivitar 283's on location like in the good old days of film and hasselblads. three 283's one speedlight, four pocketwizards w/cords and compact light stands all fits in a duffle bag, Why didn't I think of this earlier?

            I wanted to be able to use some of my old Vivitar 3700 flashes with the PocketWizard System. Result: a very inexpensive way to get more use out of something I already had.

                    use this with Pocket wizards plus 2. Works well with vivitar flash (283). Mainly I use this as a backup light source, the cable makes for an inexpensive backup when not using a Cannon Speedlite. Hopefully this cable outlives the original PC connecting wire that came with the PW+2, as that cable has died after less a year of intermittent use. I've only used this cable a handful of time, so you can assume no additional post means its still working for whenever you may be reading this review.

                      Does just what it is supposed to do: connect a Vivitar flash (with that stupid proprietary pointy sharp connector) directly to a Pocket Wizard. Works perfectly.

                        I used this product to connect my Pocket Wizard Plus II to my Vivitar 285HV. The connection on the flash is very tight. I had a little trouble connecting and disconnecting it at first, but I prefer the strong connection.
