      What can I say? Not an exciting item, but essential to use a Sony DSLR with a flash bracket. It works well and has so far stood up to repeated attachment and removal, although I wonder about its robustness over time.

      Decent product

      I found this product to work just fine, but the cable seems a bit long for bracket-mounting, often getting in the way.

      Comments about Sony FA-CC1AM Off-Camera Cable:

      used to connect flash to camera for taking flash pictures off camera.

      the cable is robust and screws into flash.

      the cable limits distance from the camera to about 3 feet. i would prefer a wireless flash.

            They cable is high quality and works great. Its a must to move the flash away from the camera for better lighting options. Very well made, easy to use, and a must for any photographer.

                          What can I say? Not an exciting item, but essential to use a Sony DSLR with a flash bracket. It works well and has so far stood up to repeated attachment and removal, although I wonder about its robustness over time.

                            I wanted to beat the harsh light and shadows created by an on-camera unit and this cable did the job. I also like the fact that the camera and flash can communicate for TTL metering or exposure adjustments. I chose not to rate higher because I have not used this item a great deal, yet.

                                i never thought i would need an extension cord for my photography, but i was wrong indeed. You may want a cord like that for your bracket/flash set up. Sony's provide a flash mount with their flashes, which is nice substitute for the [$] off camera shoe, the cord goes straight to your flash and has reasonable length, just enough to reach and extend - perfect. it helps focusing in dim light providing the red beam from the flash and syncs very well in all light conditions (Sony HVL - 56M). Note, be sure to check the performance, my first copy didn't work, the other was having issues too (tuned out to be poor contacts, had to clean them and from there it worked flawlessly )
