This 12" straight cord has gold plated terminals.
The newer style Hasselblad CF T* lenses the PC sync connection has a hexagonal collar and a small "O" ring between the collar and the female contact. Paramount's Long Tip and Gold Tip PCs are long enough to get into the PC to make good contact. Their tips are tapered and they will push aside the "O" ring. Other tips only go into the lens part way and scrape against the O ring, which in time causes it to wear out.
NOTE: Paramount Long Tip PC cords work with all cameras with PC fittings: all 35mm cameras, newer Hasselblad lenses, Hasselblad CF/CFi/CFE and Bronica cameras
Adapting a technology of the Electronics Industry, which uses gold for its durability, conductivity, and reliability, Paramount employs high quality, industrial gold, specifically designed for electronic applications, to achieve optimal signal conductivity in a new, heavy duty sync cord that's ideal for professional photographers.
