I just picked up a few AB 400's off Craigslist and I want to fire them with my new Yongnuo 603's. Not sure why I'm having difficulty finding the right sync cord to do this with? Can someone point me to the right cord I need? Thanks!

The 603 claims to have a PC port and the Alien Bee has an 1/8" jack. It does not state if it is a screwlock PC port or not though. I recommend Flash Zebra for products and answers to questions like this. Lon is very good at having the right answers and products.

I was at this site reading about the Pixel Kings and noticed they ahe the cord you are looking for. I have never used them so I know nothing about this supplier but it confirms the connectors you need.

The 602's came with a variety of cords and adapters - 1/4" 1/8" PC . Don't the 603's?

That is what I thought too, but when I looked at the ads they all state that this cable can be purchased separately.

My 603's came with a sync cord for the 7D to my Canon flash but I need the sync cord for the RF-603 to the AB 400 to get it to trigger. No other cords, addapters, etc came with the 603's.

Ordered the cords from Flash Zebra. Thanks!
