View Full Version : X-Connect flash sync

16-Jan-2018, 11:58
I'm new to large format and have just acquired a Nikkor W 180 5.6. I want to connect a flash transmitter to it which has a PC sync (the Yougnuo 622c). The Nikkor has an x-connect sync.

Does anybody know what cable I need for this :-)

Thanks so much for your help. I have been lurking for a while here just trying to pick knowledge up and I am really impressed with the dedication and helpfulness of the LF community.

Thanks again

Hi Simon,
PC sync and X contact are almost the same, PC sync sometimes has an additional thread to fasten the connector to the port but you can use any X contact cable you can find. They're usually very cheap and easy to get. Something along these lines will do: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/335568-REG/Hama_HA_6938_Sync_Extension_Cord.html

You need a standard flash cord. The type that comes with most flash units.
