Re: About this 60D isn't a semi-pro cam BS...

I shoot a lot of flash and don't consider the lack of a sync port much of a "pro" differentiator. If I want off-camera flash (usually), I use an RF trigger commonly called a "Poverty Wizard." ($50 for one transmitter, two receivers.) If I want a hard connection, an extension cable from the hot shoe works fine and extends TTL if I want that. If you must have a PC connection, $10 buys you a hot-shoe-to-pc adapter on eBay.

Even the "pros" don't seem to like PC connectors because they're too flaky for "pro" use. They prefer HH plugs or 1/8 mini phone plugs or RCA plugs or just about anything besides a PC connector, except of course for the proprietary Vivitar flash connector.
