Cool...I assume this manual flash only.

Actually, it works in ALL Camera modes, for sure in M mode is the best usage.
SYNC signal is a kind of "shutter pressed" signal, instead of Flash Fire.

This is a nice setup for syncing to a flash via a cable. Wonder how exactly you would connect and arrange a hot shoe that could be strapped to the top of the flash. Into which you could slide a Yongnuo RF-603 remote flash radio transmitter.

My first plan was to attach a shoe at HVL-F7S top, but I refuse by now to avoid damage the flash unit. So, only wire the cables inside. And I only use what I have at home this weekend!

I'm searching which radio trigger to use, and the plan is to use a small flash bracket to attach the Wireless TX at side.

I'm researching on Yongnuo RF-603 Wireless Flash Trigger for Canon C1, I think RX can accept my YN560II at the Hot shoe.

I order this bracket, that is useful to attach my YN560II or Wireless TX trigger:
