Fragile - but the best available

Photographer for Charitable Organization, B&H Photo
4 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Used to support a Canon 580EXII on a flash bracket for event photography. Electrically it is well made, but the plastic footing is not very durable for professional use and broke after several years of light use - I expected better from Canon. I tried a cheaper cord from another manufacturer, and while it held up physically the cord broke electrically after 1 year. Just purchased a Canon replacement and we will see how long this one lasts.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable
  • Cons: Expensive For Durability, Not Durable, Poor Mechanical Design

Replacement

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace a unit that broke after 4 years. The shoe that attaches to the flash bracket is plastic and susceptible to breakage. Other than that it is a good unit.

  • Excerpt: On the expensive end of the budget... Basically $ bucks for a cable...But it does what it's for, seems sturdy enough and same lock mechanism to get your flash properly set up..

Plastic bracket breaks easily

Monkeygirl, B&H Photo
1 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Mount is structurally weak, broke after light use. After the fourth time I used it, the plastic slide fell apart during a wedding shoot. Was able to rig something using wire and duct tape, but for the high price, thought it would be better quality. The cord synchs great, but the weak mount renders it mostly useless if you want to attach it to anything like softbox/tripod.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable, Poor Design

2nd one fell apart

JETA, B&H Photo
31 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Just had my 2nd OC-E3 fall apart in a 3 month period while on a shoot. I have stayed with only Canon products for over a decade. Unfortunately, Canon refuses to look at the issue that is going on with this cord. If you google it you will see images of this cord in pieces. Luckily I was able to catch my flash when the first one fell apart. I had to switch to the Vello TTL cord. Took it out on location yesterday and it did a beautiful job.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Falls apart, Not Durable, Not Functional, Poor Design

Flashback

Photobug, B&H Photo
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The original cord we bought had the metal contacts break on it. We had to buy a replacement. The cord wasn't removed and replaced very much. It pretty much stayed on the camera all the time. Really surprised when the contacts broke. It had lasted about two years though.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Not Durable
