    Any idea what this flash cable is used for

    Attachment 162375

    16 inch flash cable with one end being the standard pc connector and the other very much different as the a very short straight nose followed by (what seems to be) a (metallic) conical collar, followed in turn by a plastic conical section.

    Mods if appropriate move to another section.

    Looks like a device-specific plug to a small on-camera flash. No idea whose brand it might be, though.

    That's the cord for a Rollei flash, like the E36 RB to a PC contact on a camera shutter. It is actually a PC tip on both ends with a locking collar on the end that attached to the flash unit.
