Product Highlights
  • Maintains Full TTL connection
  • 1.5' (0.5 m) Coiled Cord
  • Mounts to Flash Shoe
  • Mounts to 1/4"-20 Threaded Studs
  • Reduce Harsh Shadows
  • Compares to Sony FA-CC1AM

The Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire off-camera flash units that use the Sony/Minolta type shoe. 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.

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.

This coiled cord measures 1.5' (0.5 m), which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Shooters looking to mount the flash to a larger bracket or to a stand with an umbrella would probably need a longer version of this cable.

Other available lengths are:

  • 3' (1 m) - allows for handheld shooting at arm's length, and provides extra length for flash brackets with longer positioning arms
  • 6.5' (2 m) - accommodates keeping the flash mounted on a lightstand with an umbrella, while staying in close proximity

    Compatibility
    Sony or Minolta cameras with Sony/Minolta type TTL hot shoe
    Sony flashes with Sony/Minolta type shoe
    Off-Camera Lighting

    1.5' / 0.5 m Coiled Cord
    The 1.5' length accommodates off-camera hand-held technique.

        Just what I needed to allow me to use a TTL Off-Camera Flash on my rotating camera/flash support. Works exactly as I expected. A pox on that proprietary Sony/Konica/Minolta hot shoe.

        Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord with Sony/Minolta Type Shoe - 1.5' (0.5 m):

        I purchased the Vello Off Camera flash cord to use with my Sony NEX7 and a flash bracket. I do some weddings and recently decided to try using my Sony instead of my heavier DSL cameras. The problem was finding an off camera flash connector that would work with the Sony/Minolta shoe. The Vello 1.5 ft was perfect, in fact it was the only one that I could find that worked with the Sony NEX. I plan to buy longer cables for reflected light shots. I would highly recommend this product. It is well made, sturdy and easy to connect and performs great.

                Is not much to be said about TTL-off-camera flash cord. It functions in a manner that it was designed to do.
