Re: Aputure TrigMaster Plus: bad PC cables in 4 units

Those cold shoe adapters you got look great! I got a manfrotto that's a cheap piece of cr*p for $8, those are much nicer!

Yes, now that you mention it my 2.5mm PC sync is as you describe, but I've had no issues sticking it into the trigmaster, or having it work fully seated. It could be a combination of the cable and your trigmasters. Oddly, a regular 2.5 fits just fine too, so go figure. I got mine about 6 months ago.

I've only ever used it for my one Yongnuo flash though, the Canon flash works fine on the hot shoe, and my stand accommodates the 1/4" 20 thread.

I'm getting ready to order some more - so I guess I better watch for the same issue!
