          This pc to hot shoe is great! Just want I was looking for. The long length let's me light those hard to reach cracks and crevasse. I highly recommend.

              I got this instead of that HAMA Universal Flash Adapter Adapter [HAFAU], which has a horrible PC port that doesn't seem to work. Fewer connection points = fewer problems, right?

              So far so good. It seemed to stop working for a while but when I brought it home I gently tapped the curved part of the hot shoe adapter with a hammer, making a more secure connection and it worked fine after that. I've taken this thing to the ocean, through the mud, through the sand, through the streets of New York City without a hiccup. The flash triggers every time and this thing's seen quite a bit of abuse.

                  I've had this for a month or two now & I've used it a couple of times on location. It seems reliable & I'm buying a backup just in case.The construction is flimsy, especially the hot shoe area which really feels like cheap plastic & bent metal. The bottom has a 1/4" 20 thread (female) to mount on a stud in your light stand. It would be better if it had a cold shoe bottom since the thread feels flimsy.It's also "twitchy" with my Nikon speedlight. I'm finding my Nikon speedlight is twitchy with a lot of things. The contact is inconsistent & it'll go off at the slightest tap. Also the Nikon "locking" mechanism is a little pin that pokes out of the bottom of the flash - which just pushes on the plastic & pushes the flash away from the bottom center contact.I'd imagine Canon flashes would have the same sort of twitchy issue as the Nikons- all those extra sensors on the bottom make for a very twitchy situation with non-Nikon or Canon tech. (I've experienced this sort of thing with other similar units.)On the Vivitar 285HV though, it works great. Fires every single time. I guess old tech works best with old tech.The cable is also nice & long and lets me get away from my flash, just so long as I don't accidentally get it in the shot.If this cable was $15 I'd buy a handful of them just to keep as spares, but since it's [$] I'll just buy a couple and treat them a little nicer.
