Re: Using sync cord activates F43AM test mode

Why does the a77 and some flashes like the f56 (I think) have pc sync connections instead of, say, mini-jacks? Is it primarily a legacy item? Thanks for the link to the Sony-specific cable. That's probably more of what I'm looking for to use when I'm holding the flash off camera and its too sunny or I'm too close to the subject for the Sony wireless flash. Are there any other connections I should be considering?
