Want i-TTl Remote Cord, Will Get!

Discussion in 'General flash photography, lighting, and technique' started by underitall, Sep 27, 2008.

  1. Iv had alot of fun with my 3rd party flash (An Eva Blitz Auto-265) that I wanted to trigger it from different angles, without using long exposures, but I didnt want to pay about £15 for something that costs about £2 to make, so I made one...
    It is made from, some random telephone wire, and the flash unit itself.
    I unscrewed the hot-shoe connection form the bottom of the flash, and cut the wires, and made an extension of about 4-5ft, simple, now iv got a Remote Flash Cord.
    Here it is, along with one decent photo iv taken using it, the light coming from the top of the subject.
