I pre-ordered the A6000 then the HVL-F20S flash that have already received. I will be doing some closeup work with the SEL30M35 lens where getting the flash off the camera is a must. Found this cheap Vello brand, Sony Alpha flash cord 1-meter coiled adaptor for $20 with hot shoe adaptors at each end and am wondering if anyone here has something to say?

These kind of cord adaptors are just simple one to one wire connections but are notorious for becoming intermittent. The Sony FA-CC1AM plus FA-CS1M do the same thing for a hundred bucks with no doubt quality contacts.

it has the old-style shoe on it, doesn't the a6000 have the new universal hot shoe? Won't you still need an FA-CC1AM to mount that cheap cord on the camera?
