Review Date: February 26, 2018 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: None indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Fairly rugged
Cons: Not inexpensive

These cables are male to male (pins to pins). Flashes are female, as are the F Adapters. AF-500FTZ flashes (and probably others in the series) have the 5P connector directly wired to the hot shoe, so combinations of 5P Cables and F Adapters can be used to daisy chain flashes. In this configuration, they all can be operated in film camera TTL mode.

Review Date: July 14, 2010 I can recommend this item: Yes | Price: $40.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Useful for flash bracket
Cons: ties up hot shoe, needs expensive adapter

I use this cord frequently with a flash bracket. Be sure to get the right adapter for the hot shoe, or you can't use the on-camera flash as fill. It seems to me that the camera should have a sync socket, or the cord should come with the hot shoe adapter. Buying the cord and the adapter is a rather expensive do-dad.
