DO NOT use to hook up to high voltage sync strobes (in my case Norman 200 Bs), said to fry digital cameras. AS-15 seems better made than other options.

Use: to sync my camera's shutter to an Impact 400 watt strobe
Pros: small, lightweight, accurate. It's an ideal setup for a 1-light studio shoot.
Cons: the sync cable flops all over the place and falls out of the adapter port at least once every ten minutes, and this particular light syncs automatically to my flash, provided that the flash is set to TTL mode, so oftentimes this is just brought along to shoots as a backup.

      Comments about Nikon AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter (Hot Shoe to PC):

      I purchased this product for a photography lighting class that I am taking at a local community college. When I was reviewing the instructions, it was stated that it was to be used with Nikon Cameras. I contacted B&H's customer service and was advised that this Sync Adapter should work with my Canon T2i Rebel EOS Camera. I took it to class for our studio/lab day and the AS-15 worked perfectly with my camera.

          Comments about Nikon AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter (Hot Shoe to PC):

          I had a D200 and wanted to update, but since I try not to shoot weddings any more, I couldn't justify the money on a D700 or better. Instead, I settled on the D7100 for the sensor update. I was worried after I got my new camera because I hadn't noticed before, it didn't have a sync cord spot. This inexpensive add on does the trick. I just leave it attached to my sync cord so I don't lose it!

              I tried an off-brand hot shoe from a local camera store. It did not work with the Alien-bee lighting I used. Nikon's AS-15 hot shoe was a clean fit, and gets my gear to sync *almost* perfectly. There were a few misfires during my last shoot. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, because it gets the job I need done.

                  It is just as advertised. It works and because I cannot yet afford a D4.... I needed the PC sync for a gig that was thrown my way. I made a quick buck... so I definitely got my investment back. Worked flawlessly, no hassles. Sync cables fit snugly. No problems what-so-ever. Only problem, it is tiny and plastic. Keep it safe, it appears fragile!

                                    This little thing saved my life (not literally). I bought a bunch of lighting equipment, but it wouldn't sync with my Nikon. Got this, and problem solved.

                                          It works as stated, pop it on the hotshoe or your camera, in my case I have lights that I connect to it. The lights go off perfect like a flash would. Worth every penny if you need this product.

                                                  Used with a Canon SLR and Studio Strobes. Well built and works perfectly with any hotshoe.
