Product Highlights
  • Compatible with Sony/Minolta ADI / P-TTL
  • Coiled Cord
  • Mounts to Flash Shoe
  • Mounts to 1/4"-20 Threaded Studs
  • Allows Off-Camera Triggering of Flash

The 3' Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire Sony/Minolta flashes with ADI / P-TTL 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 3', which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. 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.

      Great Flash Cord for My Sony Alpha 580

      Worked right out of the box. I'm still new to using an external flash and this flash cord allows me to use my flash with much better results.

      Hmmm

      It's a tightly wound cord. Barely stretches to advertised length. Looking in to either another flash or a wireless kit to get away from thus curly bungee cord.

            I mount my Sony A33 and Bolt VS-510S Wireless TTL Flash on a bracket. This off-camera flash cord for Sony/Minolta type shoe performs perfectly as intended and required.

                  This cord works perfectly with the proprietary Sony/Minolta hot shoe
                  (Nex 7) and allows for for a softer, less harsh flash than if the flash unit were on the camera.

                    These cords work great, I own three now. Although I use triggers I don't like mounting my speedlights to them. These work great allowing me to attach my trigger or hang it from the stand. Also a great back up plan if a trigger fails. I have a 1.5, 3, and a 6.5

                      It does what it's supposed to do: connect a Minolta/Sony hot shoe flash to my Sony A77. I'd say the extended reach is about 26 comfortable inches, though you can stretch it to 3 feet (which will have more tension on the connectors than I'm comfortable with).Solid plastic connectors and a thick coiled cable all seem to be well made and will last me for years to come, I suspect, as long as I don't abuse the cord. I took one star of the review because the claim of 3 feet.... in my opinion. Useable length is more like 26 to 30 inches.

                              I shoot a lot of close up subjects with off camera flash and do not want to deal with Sony's (Minolta's) on camera pre-flash communications that can show up in the final shot. I purchased this as a trial and it works perfectly for my needs.

                              *I have to use the hot shoe adapters to go from the new multi interface shoe on my equipment to the older iISO Sony/Konica Minolta/Minolta interface used by the cable. Thankfully my camera and flash each came with an adapter.

                                        Does just what I need it to. Great for indoor still-lifes that need that extra lighting umph for the photographer without a wireless flash. I'll probably end up taking this everywhere I go from now on.

                                          Comments about Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Sony/Minolta Cameras (3'):

                                          This cord perfectly matches the Sony/Minolta hot shoes and has all the pins needed for my NEX-7 and Sony flash unit. The coiled length of this cord is a perfect size for my Stroboframe to move the light source above red-eye territory. This connection lets me skip red-eye preflash to snap the exact expression I see in the viewfinder and saves that pre-flash juice too.

                                              It just works the way it should work. At a lower cost and my budget constraints, a great alternative to the original.

                                                  Bought for my Alpha 65 and it works nicely. The price is great and it's well made.

                                                    Worked right out of the box. I'm still new to using an external flash and this flash cord allows me to use my flash with much better results.

                                                      With this cord I finally can use off camera flash, while retaining the TTL function. It works smoothly and the cord is pretty solid. It is easy to use and works without any problem. This is a high quality product for a decent price.

                                                          I bought this to replace another cord that was undependable. This one is much higher quality. I couldn't be more pleased with this one. It works smoothly, is solid, and the cord is more substantial. This one is the perfect length for using with a Stroboframe. It feels like a premium product for a bargain price.

                                                            Comments about Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Sony/Minolta Cameras (3'):

                                                            After co-shooting a wedding with another photog who used off camera flash extensively I because interested in trying this out on some sports photography. Using a Sony HVLF58AM attached to this cord I was able to achieve some unique lighting effects when used in close quarters in conjunction with the Sony 35mm/1.4 lens. Attached to the cable the flash retained all functions just as if it had been mounted on camera. An added feature is a standard female screw mount on the flash shoe. It actually mounts better on a stand than if that plastic shoe was used.

                                                            • Was this a gift?:
