7D won't trigger V5 from PC port
5 months ago

I'm trying to trigger a V5 from the 7D PC port using the sync-port and 2-conductor 3.5mm cord. Perhaps the V5 sync-port is for output only? Or is there an issue with the cord being only a 2-conductor instead of 3? I know I can use a hot-shoe/PC adapter.

2nd question is I need a sync cord to fire my 285hv flashes using the adapter in the link. Neither the Cactus literature or the adapter literature specify if the cord has to have a 2 or 3 conductor cord.
