After dealing with an optical sync that would not sync with my shutter consistently, I decided to get this little hot shoe adapter so I could sync with a cord. The shutter sync is flawless once I figured out the correct sync speed and flashes my strobes as designed. The only deal I have with it is that my camera (Canon EOS Xsi) does not recognize it as a controllable flash unit, so I can't customize the sync settings. This is probably due to the fact that the product is a universal adapter and not a Canon-specific adapter. This isn't a real deal breaker for me, as the 1/250 max shutter speed is sufficient for the product photos I take.

Eh..

The Nikon hot shoe adapter worked inconsistently with my D750. Swapped it for this and it won't fire my Photogenic StudioMaxIII at all.

Does not work with Canon in Live View

Comments about Vello Universal Hot Shoe Adapter for PC Connection:

This item does not work when Canon Rebel T3i is in live view and says it won't do so in the little manual Vello provides. Called B&H and they were both unaware of this and didn't know why it wouldn't work.

Cannon: Good..........Nikon: Not Good

Comments about Vello Universal Hot Shoe Adapter for PC Connection:

Two Issues: First:  Saw a previous reviewer pointed out issue with Nikon D750- just would not slip all they way onto camera hot shoe.  Can't figure out why.  Works fine with Cannon.  Second: After 8 months, finding sync cord won't stay tight in port so have had to set up velcro rig job to keep it in.

    Comments about Vello Universal Hot Shoe Adapter for PC Connection:

    This worked well with my Canon Rebel SL1. At first, if your flash does not go off, reverse the polarity of the connection at your flash power supply, if possible.

    It is best to use this with a voltage protector.

      Purchased this for use with my Fuji X100T. The adapter appears nicely made and fires the flash. It's compact and has a threaded foot to secure it nicely to the hot shoe. So, great!

        We provide 2 photo studios for our Design students to photograph their projects and our previous hot shoe broke. This Universal Hot Shoe Adapter from B&H seems to be very sturdy and we really like having the option of tightening it down. Everything works great.

            I use this adapter to fire a flash unit with a PC cable and so far it seems to work fine. I owned one like it but a different brand and, for whatever reason, it eventually failed.

            I bought this because my canon 6d doesn't have a pc connection and I wanted to connect a alien bee. Works great so far and the price is right and the shipping was cheap and fast. [*]
