PC cord question for old Minolta Auto 28 flash
I've got a 7D, and an old Minolta Auto 28 flash has come into my possession. It'll happily fire using the test button on the back (i.e. it still works), but the hotshoe is obviously physically incompatible.
A little searching tells me that old flashes with high trigger voltages (I measured this one at 200V) shouldn't be attached to the hotshoe anyway, but that the PC connection would be oK.
The jack connector on the flash looks to be a 2.5mm socket, so is this (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-5mm-Male...ht_4142wt_1159) what I'm after? The hole appears to only be about 1/4" (6mm) deep, which seems a little too short for sub-mini jack connectors I've seen.
It's possibly a dumb question either way, but I have zero experience with PC cords/external flashes.
Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent
