The 6.5' Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire Canon flashes with E-TTL / E-TTL II capabilities. Removing the flash from the camera's hot shoe allows the photographer to create unique and dramatic lighting styles that are not possible with a traditional shoe-mounted strobe. This coiled cord measures 6.5', which accommodates shooting with the flash mounted on a lightstand and with an umbrella, while staying in close proximity. Also, off-camera lighting reduces the harsh shadows commonly encountered with direct on-camera flashes and gives your photographs a more natural look.

One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount and the shoe has a locking knob to ensure your equipment is secure.

    I bought this as an affordable approach to getting my flash off of my camera. I have been in situations where I didn't have enough room to take the angle I wanted because the flash was in the way. I also don't usually like the results of the flash right over the lens. My next step is to get a couple of Pocket Wizard transceivers. I can't wait to have complete freedom with portable lighting.

    The biggest downside is the design. The cord comes out the same direction as the lens. It would be a benefit to have it on a swivel so that the cord could easily lay to the right or the left or where ever it was needed. A locking swivel so you could pin or lock it into a specific position would be ideal.

    I use this mainly for macro photography, to connect a Canon 580EX flash to my 5DMkII with 100mm f2.8L IS USM macro lens. The flash and camera are mounted on a custom adjustable bracket that fixes the flash from 8 - 18 inches beside the lens. The great working distance of the 100mm f2.8L macro lens gives plenty of room for side illumination in many macro situations, providing nice diffuse soft shadows - better than a ring light which often results in dead looking, flat, clinical photos.

    In the couple of months since I got the cable I haven't had any misfires or other issues with communication between the camera and flash. The hotshoe connector for the flash feels a bit flimsy, but since with my setup I'm not stretching the cable there's no torque on it.

    However, if I had bought this cable expecting to use it extended to 6.5 feet it would have been returned the day I got it. The coil is extremely stiff and inflexible. DO NOT buy this cable unless you only need 3 feet or less. At any greater extension the cable would pull so strongly that you should expect to have it pulling over tripods, light stands, etc., not to mention the strain on the connectors which don't seem that strong to begin with.

    My bottom line is yes, I would recommend it, but only as a 3 foot cable. I give it 2 stars because it should not be advertised as a 6 foot cable.

    Totally made for the 600ex-rt

    Comments about Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Canon Cameras (6.5'):

    Matches up well with the 600 regarding the metal footing and plate. This length is a good multi use for a stroboframe or handheld.

    Yes, this off-camera TTL flash extension cord works perfectly with the Fuji X-T1 - and probably others in the Fuji X-series as well, but I don't have any of the other X-series to test it on. Slides into the hot shoe, and you place your Fuji flash or the wonderful Nissin i-40 Fuji-compatible flash on the other end of the cord. Magic happens, full TTL control and off-camera flash. What more could you want?

      Good tool for off-camera flash. Fits snugly in hot shoe, and has the same locking mechanism as a Sppedlite. This model is long enough to comfortably hold in your hand to position the flash or to use on a bracket.

        Comments about Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Canon Cameras (6.5'):

        Actually I'm using this Flash cord with my Fujifilm XT-1 camera and with my Nissin i40 flash. I don't think that the TTL function is working with this cord but I don't care because I use the Nissin i40 on manual flash settings. The cord is just for triggering the flash and for that task it works well. It is easy to connect with the camera and with the flash too. It is nice to use it when you are on location portrait photograpy and you want to use off camera flash.

          This cord is short enough for me to comfortably hold my flash in one hand while shooting with the other. The cord is a bit stiff, so I have to use a sturdy tripod if I want to shoot from more than about four feet away from my flash.

              Bought the Canon version of this flash cord a couple years ago. The flash cord broke twice on me. Basically the head of the hotshoe mount came loose from the base. I was able to fix that. The second time it broke loose the wires snapped off. I found this flash cord for half the cost of the cheaply made Canon one. One note, if you have a Whimberley flash bracket you will need to file down the plastic mounting portion that mounts to it. Not a big deal and only took a minute or two to adjust. That is the reason for 4 stars.

When asked for information I got very useful, accurate, and courtesy data from an individual how happen to be a product order. The flash cord is just what I needed, again.Not sales: just information; as it has been for my last 30 plus years with B&H!

                    The 5 stars reflects a recent all day Debuttante (read Wedding) shoot. Worked like a charm. I have a bunch of Zeikos and equivalent shorter coiled cords that have been less than spectacular, the top piece of one that mysteriously came off that I had to have super glue fix and reading the horror stories of the Canon OC-E3 Off Camera Shoe Cord 3 I thought I'd give this one a shot and so far so good, very pleased. It isn't 6.5' in length because it's coiled, measured with no tension applied it's 26 inches and easily stretched to 3' with no worry of damaging it and gives a lot more play with my Manfrotto Telescoping Camera/Flash Bracket. For the price and construction I will pick up another as a backup that I may never use but if you're reading this then you know the drill as far being prepared in the field.

                      This flash cord works very well but it is difficult to extend to 6' since the cord is coiled tightly. Extending the cord this far will put a tremendous amount of pressure on a light stand and actually caused one of mine to tip over. Otherwise it works very well.

                        This design is a great improvement over what I had been using - the way the cord locks onto the hot show is a huge improvement and the whole cord seems more robust and well-made to survive daily use.

                          It works, flashes flashes. The cord is tightly wound, so if you want to use the full six feet you're going to need a significant amount of weight or another person to hold the flash or something will fall, crash, etc.

                            Works as advertised. All settings work fine with my 5D Mk. III

                              This product allows me to experiment with the various outcomes using the flash.

                                I wasn't familiar with Vello products before I ordered this. When the cord arrived I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and that it appears to be durable. Time will tell on that but so far it looks pretty good.

                                The 6' coil cord is perfect for getting the flash onto a stand with a soft box or umbrella. The cord works perfectly.
