The arrival of my skyports are imminent but it appears that flashzebra out of the female hotshoe adaptor -> skyport cables. (connecting to a 430EX)
I have read that paramount and michael bass provide similar products but i want to explore other options first (ie DIY)

I can't seem to locate any hot shoe mounts here in Sydney which is a downright annoyance so subsequently have been looking overseas.

At the Gadget Infinity site, i was able to locate these two products.

PC Sync - 3.5 mm Adapter Cable

Anyone able to comment on this as a solution in terms of suitability and value? I know some are not fans of the PC Sync connection and may well advise to throw in the extra money for a quality custom product.

This is all I use. Easy to find cables anywhere in an emergency, well built and never had a failure of any flash from my 580's to 383's to 285's.

You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.
