Re: Hot Shoe to PC Cord

For a manual flash (no TTL, but a studio strobe is likely manual) the standard hot shoe contact will work. A cord that works in another brand will work for this purpose.

As for the trigger voltage, you can look up the voltage in the strobe specifications to make sure. It is not related to the battery voltage.

(But if it doesn't blow up other digital cameras and the strobe is modern, i.e. can be bought today as new, or bought in the past 10 years, it will probably be fine.)

Some small research: many Canon models also are limited to 6 volts (

And you can measure the voltage, if you have a multimeter.
