for all EOS Cameras except for the EOS 630 and RT. This cord exhibits nearly the same level of dustproof and water-resistance performance as the Speedlite 580EX II.
This affordable special accessory is useful to achieve off-camera flash photography results without the harsh shadows behind your subjects common when using direct flash exposures.
This Canon accessory allows you to connect your Canon Speedlite on one end of the cord and the other end will be mounted to the Hot Shoe unit of your EOS camera. You can stretch the accessory's cord by up to 0.6 metres long and away from the camera in any shooting degrees you wish to point the flash towards your intended subject.
The Off Camera Shoe Cord 2 unit also come with a built-in tripod socket at the other end where the Speedlite unit is attached to which permits it to be locked onto a tripod and frees your hand from holding the off-camera flash.
