Im looking to take my 2 sunpack 383 and 1 580ex off camera (i have cactus triggers and recievers). I know everything about taking them off, i just need to know where to buy the cords (pc/sync). When mounted on the flash stand and flash is on the reciver it seems like its gonna fall over. Like such

Im trying to find a place to buy those cords for my 383's. I know flash zebra is good but idk what exact piece it is, can someone show me the link for it? Also the cord for the 580ex V1 what would i need for that? I dont see a sync port on it so i dont know which cord to buy. If any one can help me i would appreciate it. im also going to be upgrading to the cybersync trigger and recivers, would these cords work with them aswell?

Thanks
Rob

The cord that comes with the Sunpak will work with the Cactus receiver.

For the 580, some thing like this..

I second sending an email to Lon, he is great and very knowledgeable. He will make sure you get the exact cord you need for your setup.

Just get a hot shoe adapter. Run the cord to that. That is what I do. I get them from Lon as well. They are $11.
