    Hey!

    Has anyone made their own 1/8" mono to PC PocketWizard synch cable?

    I just got a pair of them...and I need synch cables. I want some RIGHT NOW! so I was thinking of making my own.

    Anyone have a pin-out? I realize it's only 2 contact points...but I'd rather not guess as to which side the digital trigger pulse is on.

    I'm interested on this too. I want to ad a sync port to my 580ex's to use with my poverty wizards.

    buy a female PC adapter and slip it on the bottom of the flash.

    I wanted to keep the amount of gear I have to keep up with at a minimum. I can always just put my flash on top of the receiver.

    It's tiny...and cheap. Makes it incredibly easy to add a PC port to connect to.

    I'm fairly certain that the trigger voltage is a simple 6v pulse...

    It's late so I can't run down and scope the output from the camera right now....BUT...I'll try it later in the week and see what I can whip up. I have a funny feeling that I'm going to be hacking apart a PC cable soon. :mamoru:
