question

This looks like it could be a handy device. With this, can I ask a simple rookie question? I do use the Nikon iTTL system with my D-90 which seems to work without a PC socket. Can you tell me the shooting scenario when a PC Socket provides a benefit? To ask this differently, what additional things can I do with the PC Socket that I can't do now? Thank you.

Do note that the PC connection DOES NOT transmit TTL information, the only time the above adapter will transmit i-TTL information is when the hot shoe adapter is connected to your camera's hot shoe, and a TTL flash is used on top of the adapter. This allows you to retain i-TTL communication when the flash is on top of the camera and adapter, but still adding a PC terminal which you can attach other flash accessories, such as studio strobes or wireless triggers.The benefit of adding a PC terminal to your flash or camera is usually to connect studio flash lights or flash triggers to your camera or flash that does not have the connection, as many professional studio equipment (and some older non-TTL flash units) still use the standard PC terminal. Most studio flashes use a sync cable that has a PC terminal on one end of the cable, and if your camera does not have this connection, this adapter placed on your camera's hot shoe will allow you to use these studio strobes with your camera. While Nikon's D90 and many Nikon flashes do have their i-TTL wireless system for triggering the flashes when used off-camera, i-TTL requires line-of-sight, meaning the flash has to be able to see the light pulse emitted by the commander or flash on the camera. Also, as i-TTL uses light pulses to transmit the automatic exposure information, the wireless range can be reduced outdoors in strong ambient sunlight. If you wish to use a radio transmitter, many on the market come with a PC cable to connect to your flash. If you need to connect a remote (or any other device that uses PC terminals) to your flash and your flash does not have a PC terminal, then this adapter would add a PC connection to your flash. These are the main usa of this adapter; adding a PC terminal to your equipment.

question

Can I use this for my Nikon sb500 together with Pocket Wizard Plus?
Asked by: Eliseo C.
Yes, you'll need the cord that comes with the PW to plug from it to the adapter and then your sb500 can go on top.

question

Can the PC port be used as an input to power the hot hotshoe? I want to add one on top of the camera to use in iTTL and a PC cable to link a second one to add a RF trigger in the hotshoe. Will this setup work?
Asked by: Mark L.
I believe the answer is yes. It doesn;t seem to be much trouble to try it especially with a DX camera. You maycheck the results immediately.
