View Full Version : Crown graphic flash
hey i'm looking to sync a modern metz flash (i think a cl 41) to a crown grapic with the ektar 127mm lens, i cant see a modern flash sync only the two pins. does anyone know of a way to connect them without damaging to metz (its my colleges)
Just get a conversion cord, many stores sell them to go from bi-pole to pc socket, I made mine out of old pc cord and a electric shaver cord....I know that some of the conversion cords made, do have a resistor or diode in them though, but you should be able to get one from most stores...that sell good equipment...
If you're not a do-it-yourselfer like Dave, check out the Paramount web site. They will make any kind of cord for you.
Before getting the adapter cord, you might want to make sure your shutter has a little switch to go from M to X sync (M being for flash bulbs, as used in the original Graphic "light sabers", and X for electronic flash). Absent the switch, it is probably M-only sync.
Depending on shutter, it might give delay times rather than M or X. If it shows 0 (not off) it is the same as x-sync.
