        Comments about Wein SSPC Safe-Sync:

        I bought this Safe-Sync to allow me to use an old righlight that has a high sync voltage on modern digital cameras. I checked the high sync voltage after it went through the safe-sync and it had been decreased to 6 volts as advertised.

          Comments about Wein SSPC Safe-Sync:

          I ahve a lot of older flash equipement that I wanted to be able to use for my Sony DSLR. This makes it possible. The only thing I don't like is that they do not make a Sony specific version. I chose the PC to PC version so that I could use it with other newer cameras aw well.

          My hot shoe to PC adapter doesn't seem to work with my latest Minolta camera, so can not use with that. If there were a Minolta/Sony specific version, I would have bought that instead.

                The Wein safe-Sync works! I am able to use my bunch of powerful twenty-year-old Bogen monolights without harm from back-current to my DSLR by including the device in the line. If it works on my antique strobes it should work with any product.

                  Comments about Wein SSPC Safe-Sync:

                  Bought this product to prevent high voltage from damaging my Nikon D80's circuitry when using a flash sync cord. It is very small & lightweight. However, I returned the product when I was assured that it was not necessary since the Elinchrom Style 400BX Lighting Kit that I was using operated at only 5 volts. The safe sync limits voltage to 6 volts and my system was already even lower. I would use this in line with sync cords when you cannot be sure of the voltage that is being produced.
