The Flashpoint TTL Off Camera Flash Cord for Canon EOS provides the easiest solution for creative photographers who want to add dimension, drama and modeling to their ordinary flat lighting usually obtained from hotshoe mounted Canon Speedlites. By placing the flash off the camera hot shoe and onto a bracket, cage or stand, a photographer can break free of the static style forcedby the nature of on axis lighting. This cable works as a full-function communication cord, relaying data between the camera and dedicated flash. The cable features an integrated AF assist lamp on the camera end, insuring that youhave the use of your AF assist beam above your lens regardless of the position of the tethered flash.
The TTL cable flip locks firmly onto the camera hotshoe securely establishing contact to all the data points, which are transmitted via the durable 3 foot coiled cable. The end acts as an extended foot for the speedlight, and attaches to any stand, tripod, umbrella bracket, or other device with a standard 1/4"-20 screw or flash shoe mount. The extra length of the cable gives great flexibilitywhen used on a bracket with a rotating or flip arm.

I ordered a kit from Adorama that contain the cord. Out of the packaging the cord would not register the flash, no ETTL. It would set-off the flash, but it was at full power, always. I contacted Adorama CS for a replacement. They thought I wanted a refund and refused. After a short call back to CS, they understood and shipped another new one to me. I received it, tested it, and (go back to the beginning and start reading, again! Same, Same!) I assume that is why they are selling them at 50% off. DO NOT PURCHASE! It has a 100% failure rate.
