question

I am curious what this means PC terminal for use with non-shoe flash units. What is a PC terminal? Can i hook this onto my Nikon D5100 Shoe mount for use with off camera flashes?
Asked by: Anonymous
A "PC" terminal - or connector - is a very, very old style small push-on coaxial connector for a flash trigger cord. Been around for decades and IIRC, from before WWII and was used before the "hot" shoe with a center contact was created. Still in use for triggering studio lights with a cord. If you look a the side of this trigger, you'll see a small cylindrical protrusion. This is the PC terminal for use with PC cords.

question

does this work with Nikon SB600?
Asked by: Pu Q.
I own both an SB600 and this optical slave. It will not work with the SB600. I've read articles that suggest the voltage on the SB600 isn't high enough. I'm no expert I don't know. However, I can say with certainty that this optical slave will not trigger the SB600. I use mine to trigger an old Sunpak 383 and it works fine with that flash.

question

Has anyone gotten this to fire properly in response to a non-manual flash?I have a Canon 550ex on-camera, trying to trigger some old manual Minolta flashes. The two Minoltas with wein peanuts work fine with Canon flash on TTL, but the wein hs doesn't work (fires on first flash? Or maybe in response to the other slaves). If I set Canon flash to manual, the peanuts don't fire at all but the HS does....

I read your post 3 times but it's still not clear to me the issue. I use these in the field all the time triggering Vivitar 285's via the slave and/or plugging the Wein into a PocketWizard. They are bullet-proof for my needs doing commercial automotive work.
