      Great for using the old 285 off camera or on a flash bracket. I purchased my 285 30 years ago! Buy all the accesories you can !

          It works great! It connected to my Hasselblad and I was able to move the flash around and bounce it off things easily!

            This is great for using Vivitar 283 strobes. They are becoming rare and not avail locally.

                      Coiled so it's compact to fit in the bag. Long enough for off camera flash

                        This cable works well. I use it for my Vivitar 283. It responds to my Pentax K1000 (natively) and my Rebel XS (with a hot sync to hot shoe adapter)

                        Do be careful when inserting and removing the cable out of the flash gun, You have to lightly toggle/wiggle it out - it doesn't directly pull out.
