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 6' 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 6', 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 tested a number of settings compared to mounting my Metz 36 AF-5 directly on the Sony A55 camera at multiple angles of the flash. The results were identical.

      The useful cord lenght is about 5.5 feet, not 6.5, as it will be too streched out at 6.5. The cord and ends are heavy duty and should hold up well to normal use.

      Another review mentioned the cord coming from the front as a negative. Coming from the back would be worse. Coming from one side would be better, unless the flash were needed on the opposite side, further reducing the useful cord length. Therefore the back is a reasonable compromise.

      The cord has flawlessly allowed communication between my Sony A77 and my Sigma Flash unit which I mounted on a stand. Two issues I had, though. The first was that the cable attached so that it came off towards the front of the camera and at times would dip in front of the lens. I fixed that by putting a pencil through it and rubber banding that to the mount. This keeps the cord straight near the camera and out of the front for the most part. The other issue is that I was using it with a flash and umbrella mounted to a light tripod. It was difficult to stretch the cord without it getting caught up in the umbrella from any distance. I think I need to just loosen it up for that so it hangs more.

        A wonderful alternative to sony's expensive cord and mount combo. It works perfect, great build. Although I have triggers this does come in handy.

                      It works very well with the camera. The flash mount attaches to a tripod which is helpful. The main problem with this product is that the cord on camera mount projects to the front of the camera rather than to the back of the camera. As a result, the cord tends to fall in front of the lens.

                        If you don't like the "flat" images that come from default flash mounts, then this is a solution if you can't use advanced studio lighting...
                        It is also a must if you want to be sure that you don't get the "red-eye" in your flashed portrets on location.

                          Taking the flash of the camera on my Sony A-850 made a big difference.
                          For macro pictures it is now easy to get a complete black background even in full sunlight.
                          For Portraits it is really a hit and miss process. Depending on how you hold the flash the light can be anywhere from great to terrible.
                          Also make sure you have big hands to hold the camera in 1 hand and the flash in another (and yes focus, ...)

                          It have now decided to upgrade to wireless using a HVL-F20AM to control my HVL-F58AM. I will keep the cable when I only want indirect lighting using a single flash
