Paramount 17PWMHSF1 reviews

Miniphone (Pocket Wizard) to Female Hot Shoe Sync Cord - 1' Straight is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes life easier I purchased 2 of these, they are a bit on the expensive side for what they are IMO but worth it for ease of use with using off camera flash. With a 580 ex (or exII) you can directly clip the flash in and plug it into a pocket wizard, then instantly remove the flash and use it for something else without having to fumble with the PC cords. If you have a 580 ex you don't even have that option. Screws directly onto a standard umbrella holder or mono pod (to make a very basic light stick). I ordered 2 and one was defective..only because of poorly molded plastic that did not allow the flash to make full contact. ...sent out another one and that one works great! I gave it a 4 only becuase of the cost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Follow-on to review flash can't be secured I abandoned these Paramount hot shoes mostly because of the unsupportable frequency of misfires. They are not a good fit for an outdoor photoshoot where lighting has to be fluid. Without a cinching mechanism in the rails, a locking pinhole and a front stop for the shoe, the flash unit wobbles as one moves the light mount e.g. the boom, stand, tripod or camera. So, occasionally the flash would go off unintentionally, surprising the models, but more frequently the flash would simply fail to fire, deflating the mood created in the pose. We tried modifying the shoe to solve this problem with no improvement in performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with my Speedlight & Pocketwizard My old hot shoe adapter used a PC cable connector, which is terrible (very loose and constantly falls out), so I was looking for a version that could plug directly into the pocketwizard. My first attempt was one I purchased from Impact, but I couldn't get it to work with my speedlight 430 EX II, even though it was advertised to be compatible. So I tried the slightly more expensive Paramount and it works great. I finally have a good solution for my Pocket Wizard, and I love how secure the cable is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply works. Seeing as all Canon flashguns but the 580 EX II lack the ability to sync with a PocketWizard using a PC cable, this was the default choice. The hot shoe firmly holds down the strobe, and fits well onto an umbrella adapter. It is simple, works, and is recommended for converting your hot shoe strobe into an off camera slave for use with a PocketWizard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you need 1, you really need 4 If you are reading this, you probably know that the PC connection for connecting Pocket Wizards to standard strobes is the worst form of connection invented - frequent use or vibrations often lead to damage of the PC port. I use these miniphone to hot Shoe cords to connect my PW Plus II to my flashes remotely, mostly for wedding work. These work very well, can pretty much any strobe unit, and I just keep them stored on my tripod mounts. I never buy just one of these, because eventually with use the cord will start to wear (the cord protrudes straight out of the unit, and is a weak point, in my opinion). Also, you will want to find a way to secure your pocket wizard to your flash or tripod mount (I use velcro or the PW strap).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hasn't missed fired yet The miniphone hot shoe is a must if you have a pocket wizard. you can use it with regular canon flashes or even non canon flashes with the canon camera. Very strong constuction.
Date published: 2009-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills a necessary gap This is a great little product that fills a necessary gap, which unfortunately should never have even been there. If Canon's 580EX's were designed better, this item would never have been required. It is the only way to trigger 580EX's remotely using professional pocket wizards, which have superior range and triggering reliability. The material used is very durable and is of great quality, even though it's essentially just a peice of cable. The bottomline is, if you want to use your 580EX's seriously you have little alternatives.
Date published: 2008-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from not the cheapest but the best there is I wanted a nice sync cord and everyone complained about other brands.I know others were cheap, but for an extra 15$ or so I'd rather pay up then get my flash stuck or my screw to fall off or simply just not work. I read other's people reviews and everyone praised this sync cord, despite the higher price. It's well built, and it is just what I needed.
