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.

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

    I use the Vello 1.5' with a Stroboframe Press T bracket. Seems a tad bit shorter than Canon's cord, which is good because it does not dangle in front of the lens yet permits flipping from horizontal to vertical. I don't recommend it for anything other than use on a bracket due to it's short length but at these prices buy another longer cord for ocf use, either hand holding or mounted to a stand. Always good to have a back up anyway. Have only used it once but it worked fine. Four stars as I have only used it once so can't yet factor in durability.

            I've used these over the years. My last one finally wore out after many years. The VELLO is great with a better release. No more tighting it up. It has a leaver you push to tighten it on your camera. Much better design. love it..

                The last Vello cord for lasted about 4-5 years. The locking connection is getting a little loose, so I decided to replace it. This cord is excellent and way cheaper than the Canon cord.

                    Perfect cord for doing real estate photography. Not too long. Not too short. It's also well made and beats the price of other higher priced cords.

                      As good as Canon. Fits tight in the shoe and works as advertised. Great product for 1/3 the price.

                        I was looking for a TTL cable that would allow me to use my Nissin i40 off camera with my XPro1 fuji. After much searching and asking around on the internet, I found that the Canon E-TTL cable was compatible with the Fuji flash system.It works great and allows me to create the exact effect I wanted. Also, the vello was only a fraction of the cost of the Canon unit. The cable seems to be very substantial and locks securely into the hot shoe on the camera. The hot shoe on the cable has a nicely knurled knob so it can be attached to a flash bracket or similar mount. It also sports a 1/4-20 threaded hole in the base of the hot shoe that accommodates either a Q/R plate or a regular tripod mount.

                              Does exactly what the more expensive brands do and takes up less space on your camera and in your wallet.

                                I'm using this TTL flash cord with a Custom Brackets CB Digital-T flash bracket. Works flawlessly. Didn't have to think about it at all during several shoots, which means it's doing what it's supposed to.

                                It's basically all plastic, but it feels very well built. Never doubted the build quality when hooking up my 420EXii flash to it.

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

                                  I take lots of pictures of people and often have to use a flash. Red Eye effects were unavoidable with the built-in flash, so I got an off-camera flash which works great, but has to be connected to the hot-shoe of the camera. The Vello off-camera TTL flash cord allows me to put the external flash on a bracket and avoid red-eye effectively. Easy to use and efficient - what else can you ask for ...

                                  If they would use metal on metal instead of one being plastic maybe it would last longer and not brake where the to join together. So I have to give it only 2 stars do to cheaply made.

                                    This product is easy to attach and doesn't get in the way of shooting. I love using it with my Vello Speedy flash bracket!

                                      So you want a flash and want it off camera.

                                      This worked swimmingly. I had no trouble with it. I personally might go back and buy the longer one also just because I want more distance at times.
