Yes, I should update. I finally got all the back ordered parts from Mouser. I managed to assemble the cables, but with great difficulty because it is such tiny work. I had to buy a special soldering stand with alligator clips and a magnifying glass to be able to solder those connections. A delicate operation.

I made four cables and connected them all together into a 24 foot cable. Then I made four more to connect my shutter release cable to the flash. So now I have the perfect flash set up for the R1. I can move the flash way away from the camera, set the camera on a tripod, and use a shutter release cable. The long adapter cable for the shutter release means I can stay in front of the camera while shooting and have the advantage of a tripod.
