p.1 #1 · What cable to connect 5D to strobe


I have sold all my Profoto strobes but one and my PWs. Every once and awhile I would like to be able to use the remaining strobe but am uncertain as to how to connect it to my 5D. I am assuming there is a cable I can buy to do this so any suggestions or comments?

Thanks

A standard PC Sync cord is all you need.

You need a PC (Prontor-Compur) cord with a standard or screwlock male plug on the camera side, and a 1/4" phone plug on the Profoto side. I recommend this one:

It's about half the typical price of a Profoto-branded one.

BTW, if you aren't old enough to know why a phone plug is called a "phone" plug, this is why:
