RPS Lighting eTTL Cord w/1/4x20 Tripod Mount Thread for Canon (0.5 m)

You Pay: $29.95
Product Highlights
  • Allows Distance Between Camera / Flash
  • Makes Light Less Directional / Blunt
  • Tripod Mounting Thread Included
  • Designed for Use with Flash Brackets

The Dot Line eTTL Cord w/1/4x20 Tripod Mount Thread f/Canon (0.5 m) acts like an extension cord. Providing up to 0.5 m (1.64') of distance between the camera and the flash, the cord removes the flash from the camera's hot-shoe, allowing it to be mounted elsewhere, such as on a light stand or bracket. This way, the light is less directional and blunt as the flash's output path no longer so closely matches the camera's optical path. This cord features a 1/4 x 20 tripod mounting thread on the flash shoe and is designed to be used with flash brackets. It fits the Canon eTTL / eTTL2 / through-the-lens flash.

Length 1.64' (0.5 m)

        So far it seems to work better than Canon's ETTL cord. Canon's used to keep loosing contact and I would need to remount and reboot camera and flash. So far all is good with this one.

          Comments about RPS Lighting eTTL Cord w/1/4x20 Tripod Mount Thread for Canon (0.5 m):

          This eTTL Cord goes from the flash shoe on my camera to a flash bracket. It's reliable and works well, and seems to be made of high quality materials; like the shoe contacts and the cord. The little silver thumb wheel to tighten it down to my flash bracked is small and a little hard to get tight, and once it's tight a little hard to turn to loosen. But since I have it always attached to my flash bracked I don't have to tighten or loosen it.

            I bought this to use with my flashframe bracket after breaking 2 Canon OC-E3 cables. The design with a metal bracket that goes all the way round is so much more robust than the 4 tiny screws of the OC-E3. Easily the best off camera cord for a flash bracket I have used.
