About Vivitar

The VIV-FC-CAN Digital Off-Shoe Flash Cord is for all dedicated flash units for Canon cameras. One end of the cord plugs into the hotshoe of the camera, and the other has a hotshoe connection for the flash. This allows the flash to be removed from the camera's hot shoe for creative lighting, but the flash still communicates with the camera.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

Almost perfect

Great cord, sturdy, nice length. The only issue is sometimes it will not communicate between the camera and the flash and you have to re-seat the flash or the connection to the camera. Happens about 1 out of every 50 times.

It works, could be better

By

from New Jersey  -  Casual Photographer

It works, does what it is supposed to do. It is very difficult to connect though and does not seat correctly unless you really force it in all the way. I don't like really wrenching on my expensive camera stuff so I was hesitant to force it and it wasn't seated correctly and would not work at first. After I forced the connector into the Camera's hot shoe, it worked fine, but it is no where near as smooth as connecting the flash directly into the shoe.

Good quality

By

from Las Cruces, NM  -  Photo Enthusiast

Works great to reposition a Speedlite close to the subject instead of on the hotshoe for macro shots. No problem with E-TTL or manual modes. The connections are snug and fit well. Looks like a quality product that will last long.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  iS THIS GOOD WITH T3i?
JARROD C  I have a Canon EOS 60d that I purchased this Vivitar flash cord for. It works just fine. The only complaint I have is that the locking mechanisms are a little sloppy at the connection to the camera and at the connection to the flash, and sometimes you lose communication between the camera and the flash. You usually know it right away because the image is way overexposed, but it is an issue nonetheless. As far as it working with a T3i, I would assume that it would work just fine since I believe the flash contacts are standardized across Canon's line of digital SLR cameras. And, the Vivitar flash cord is purposed for Canon digital SLR cameras.

Leslie E  Is this item compatible with a Canon 60D and 580 EX II flash?
CHRISTOPHER M B  Yes...this cable works just like a Canon OC-E3. Therefore, it will work with any modern Canon camera and the full line of Canon flashes and should have no problem with eTTL communications with your camera/flash combo.
