          Aside from this PC cord there is another cord just like this one by Vivitar but it's longer and more heavy duty...I have that one too and it's the best.

            Good product, but like with most thin flash cords, they are flimsy and usually the first to go on any part of the camera to flash connection.

                  The cable is overpriced but I bought them for convenience. They work fine.

                    This cable works perfectly between older Vivitar 285HV and wireless receivers from Cactus.

                        I use the product to attach a wireless receiver to a Vivitar 285HV. Usually the flash comes with the cord, but I bought my last one used sans sync cord. The cord is perfect for use in wireless off-camera shoe-mount flash photography.
