I used the The Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord between the Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon 600ex-rt flash mount on the RF-PRO flash bracket. There is much to say but only to mention the good thing the Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord does. The first thing, the length of the cord is just right. It does not get in the way of rotation. It allow you to achieve the auto focus between the flash and the camera at all times. At present I can say that it is seems to be very sturdy cord. In all I can say that I have achieve my goal.

Gets the job done

Reliable flash cord. Takes up little space in my camera bag and easy to use. The locking mechanism to the camera hot shoe could have been a little better though.

      Very good quality and great price, works good with LUMIX G2 and Fujifilm X30 in TTL.
      Good size for smaller camera set-ups.

        I use the Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord with my Custom Bracket (CB Folding-T) and Canon Speedlight 430 EX with my Canon 5D Mark II. I have no complaints with this product. It works very well with this setup. I have also used it with my old Canon 30D

              I purchased this cord to replace my canon cable and I can say that this cord feels as well made and works the same as a canon flash cord.

              I've not used it yet, but it looks like it will be just fine and it is definitely a better value than some of the others on the market.

                Replaced this cord with the one that came with the off camera flash bracket.
                Worked great. Flash want off everytime. With the one that came with the bracket after 10 or 15 shots the flash would not fire.

                        I now think I should have bought the longer cord. At 1.5 ft. you are straining the coiled cord.

                        At first it did not work. But after cleaning the terminals with a pencil eraser it was fine.

                              I just had my second Canon OC-E3 Off Camera Shoe Cord 3 fall apart at a portrait shoot. (that's two in the last 3 months) Considering the quality of the Canon cord and cost ($!!)I knew I had to start trying other options. The following day I had a huge shoot with 120 football portriats and had to rely on my new Vello. Let me just say this cord did NOT miss a beat or in this case flash. I use it with a 5D Mark II and RRS L-bracket. All my portriats came out consistent. The only thing I would say to be careful of is cord length. It says 1.5', but the stretch to my L-bracket when shooting vertical is a stretch. It is coiled VERY tightly. I will go with the 3 foot cord on my next order and be buying backups. For $ & $ these cords can't be beat! Skip the Cancon OC-E3 for sure!

                                Half the length of the canon cord and just the right length to go from the hot shoe to Stroboframe and not to get in the way of Lens. Works fine for TTL or just firing in manual mode.

                                  Forget ETTL Camera wireless unless you need to move father than 2 feet (then I would recommend the 33' ETTL version), then you will lose HSS and all other nice features. You need this in your life, stop being cheap LOL

                                    Comments about Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Canon Cameras (1.5'):

                                    I bought this to use with my Fuji X-T1 and the Fuji EF-42 TTL flash. It does its job well, although it does feel a bit flimsy. Great value for the money though.

                                          There's not a whole lot to say about this cord. It gets the job done and I'm pleased by that. But it's nothing special and I don't expect it to last forever. For the price point, it's what I expect.
