    I'm currently using eBay PC to hotshoe adaptors. I need them to sync my SB600s with Cybersyncs. The only problem is that they feel a bit unstable at times and I'd like to get something with a little more quality and durability. Any suggestions? I can do mini-jacks too.

    The flashzebra or THESE adapters both get good reviews.

    try to use miniphone as much as possible. PC is so...inconsistent. I've had plenty of misfires with PC in the past. Once I used miniphone, no more issues.

    but I also agree with flashzebra

    anyone have any pull with lon to get any discounts?
    $25 per adaptor + shipping is a bit crazy for me.

    I definitely don't think so, I didn't bat an eye to get 3 a few days ago.

    These guys used to be considered the undercutter of PocketWizard's overpriced connectors.

    They were about $50 per adapter :noes:
