      After dealing with an optical sync that would not sync with my shutter consistently, I decided to get this little hot shoe adapter so I could sync with a cord. The shutter sync is flawless once I figured out the correct sync speed and flashes my strobes as designed. The only deal I have with it is that my camera (Canon EOS Xsi) does not recognize it as a controllable flash unit, so I can't customize the sync settings. This is probably due to the fact that the product is a universal adapter and not a Canon-specific adapter. This isn't a real deal breaker for me, as the 1/250 max shutter speed is sufficient for the product photos I take.

      I've used this to use studio strobes on my Canon DSLR and old manual film cameras. Seems to work fine, but has torn off the sleeve on a PC cord. I don't need to reduce the voltages to safely use with my DSLR (my strobes are around 15V, and my camera supports up to 250V), but your digital equipment might need another adapter that can do this.

        I use this on my camera hotshoe to connect to my Norman 400B flash head. It works great. I think I will order a back up one just in case I ever need it.

              I took this into a portrait photography class where we had 5 different models of two brands of cameras. The adapter worked flawlessly with every camera to trigger 600ws Elinchrom strobes.

                            I wasn't able to get my camera to connect to my strobe lights until I bought this baby right here. It is very easy to use for a low price.

                                        I use this adapter on my Canon T3 connected to a strobe.
                                        It's small (I have more adapters which are much bigger) feel solid and so far it worked great.
                                        I've been using it only for a short while now, but it looks like it's a great value.

                                          I bought this because my camera (Canon T3) doesn't have a place to plug in a sync cord for my portrait lights and using a battery flash to trigger the portrait lights didn't always work and ate up a lot of batteries. Thought I would see if this worked, the price was right and I am completely satisfied...well worth the little money I spent

                                                  I've used this to use studio strobes on my Canon DSLR and old manual film cameras. Seems to work fine, but has torn off the sleeve on a PC cord. I don't need to reduce the voltages to safely use with my DSLR (my strobes are around 15V, and my camera supports up to 250V), but your digital equipment might need another adapter that can do this.

                                                      I bought another adapter which was broken on arrival and got this one as a replacement instead. Well worth the extra bit of money, materials and construction seem very sound. Works great, no issues so far.

                                                            First thing I did was measure the trigger voltage for my strobe system. V=3v., which was much less than the specified 7v.

                                                            I then fired 50-60 test shots and it worked perfectly every time.

                                                            We're good to go!

                                                            The device is good, rugged, simple but the system (ac cables) is very unreliable. If your camera doesn't have an AC connector go for a Radio Trigger.
                                                            Also, cables have their own cons, first one, clumsy people tripping on them.
