    Cons

    • I don't know who designed this but the cord should be going towards the BACK of throw camera and not towards the front, over the lens where you make adjustments ... This is a complete piece of garbage, a waste ofd money and I rerturned it.MichaelMi

      Good and Solid So Far

      I go through sync cords like mad. I am a pro photographer and I use a lot of off camera strobe, so I burn through these things - even the dedicated well known brands. The more expensive well known brands will burn a hole in your wallet, if you do a lot of off camera flash photography that requires a sync cord. So far, this cord has held up quite well. Yes, it syncs fast and does the trick. I have only put it into use a few weeks , perhaps a month ago (not that long, so that is why the 4 star rating - it hasn't been that long in use), but I have done two awards shows (they can go on for a long time and the bursts are fast and consistent) and I really can't tell the difference between this one and the $80.00 cord on my other setup. Does the trick!

      Aweful Cord

      I figured I'd try the flash cord trusting that the unit from Best Buy would be reliable. It causes the flash to misfire, over fire and under fire randomly during use. I've used Nikon cords for years and have yet to test or even read reviews of any off-brand that performs as well as the Nikon cords. Why is it so hard to make a cord that works? I don't shoot weddings very often anymore and I had forgotten how bad this cord was, when I shot a wedding yesterday and half way through the ceremony my flash started to misfire badly. Luckily it's easy enough to remove the bracket and place the flash back on the camera and continue to work. But man, what a stress inducer to have surprise you in the middle of a wedding!

      Intermittent signal

      You really get what you paid for (so, in this case, you don't get much at all). The shoe lock is a crummy plastic circle and on the unit I received, the flash only fires intermittently. Compared to Nikon or Promaster cables, the spring cable is also much stiffer, making stretching the cord (and moving around) more difficult. Even though I selected new rather than open box, the packaging was torn up when it arrived, so it's possible I got someone else's defective return. Nevertheless, I recommend going with another brand.

      Shoe shoo

      For the most part the cord performed as it should. However, it was prone to misfire because the hot shoe connection was not solid. Not sure if it was on the camera end or the flash end or both. I had to repeatedly tighten the connections. Not something I want to mess with while shooting.

      Did a good job for the first 5-6 events I photographed then it stopped working. Returned it to Best Buy and got the same one. It has worked great since. Used it for graduation photos and ceremonies. Took a ton of photos.

      Had to purchase this because the flash mount I bought off of amazon didn't hold the flash in place. This holds the flash in place despite the additional connection, the flash speed is still the same.

      Item has a tightener on one end, but NOT on the other end, to hold it in place. wants to slip out of the hot shoe. Other wise it works great. I have to hold it in place with my thumb....
