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.

              Cord is a little to stiff for my liking. Cable jacket material may has been traded for cost controls to the negative. Boot at cable attachment is too stiff and impedes mounting with taller camera body using flash bracket.

                      I am using this cord on my rotating flash brackets. I have always had to wrap the excess length around to keep it out of the way, using the longer Canon cords. Now, Vello has given me the perfect cord length for my camera brackets. I also like that there is the locking nut on the cold-shoe mount for the flash end.

                      This cord does exactly what it is supposed to do so that I can now use my old quick-release flash holder and still have automatic flash functioning.

                          I use this cord with a Vello ttl hot shoe adapter with a pc syn port which I insert in my Canon 6d's hot shoe as the camera itself doesn't come with a pc port. I wasn't sure if this whole getup would work, but I tried it with a flash connected to the cord and the ttl worked perfectly!

                                This cord is entirely adequate and seemingly robust. Only time will tell on the latter. Unlike the last one I had and lost, this one has a locking/ tightening wheel on the shoe on the end opposite the camera. That's very important since it has to support the weight of the flash. I can't compare it to the Canon brand cord because I have never owned one. Canon is ridiculously expensive compared to this. Get this one first and try it. The cost is so low you can afford to toss it on the backup pile and go get the Canon if you're that much of a brand name snob.

                                    Works great with a flash bracket. Good fit and sturdy mount for flash.

                                        So far, no complaints. I will be buying another one for my backup camera. At these prices, why not?

                                          I'm using this with a Canon 7D, with a battery grip, 600EX-RT flash and a Custom Brackets Digital Pro M camera rotating bracket. Perfect length, quality seems very good and a 1/4 of the price of a Canon! NO ISSUES and very happy with the Vello flash cord.

                                            What can I say, it hasn't failed me yet. I've used it pretty regularly for about a month.
