I cannot figure out the difference between the following pocketwizard cables.
CM-N3
CM-N3-P
CM-N3-ACC

Which cable do I want?

I am looking for a remote shutter release cable for my camera.

Thanks,
Heath

We'll need to know what make and model your camera is before we can help you find a cable that will allow remote release.

They also need to indicate the model of Pocket Wizard they are using in addition to the model of camera(s) they are using.

Enjoy! Lon

Unless you have a specific reason for needing to interface to PW for wireless shutter.
These work just as well: http://www.amazon.com …prefix=RF-603%2Caps%2C188 (external link)

Take note that there are two options, C1 and C3. That determines which connector is on the shutter cable. C1 is for Rebels and other consumer grade Canons that use a mini-jack type connector for a shutter cable. C3 is the option for 5D, 7D etc. that use the "pro" type N3 connection for cable release.

Trying to connect a Flex TT5 with a 5DII/7D/(anything with an N3 connector)

I am currently using a 602 to trigger the shutter, but the Flex TT5 can be the shutter release and the flash trigger with a single unit.

You want the ACC one so you can toggle the pre-trigger on and off.
