Flash Cords

The 4P cords and connectors have 4 pins and 4 wires. They are TTL-capable and transmit the "ground," "trigger," "ready," and "mode" flash operation signals for analog-control flashes.

The 5P cords have 5 pins and 5 wires. These are TTL-capable and transmit the "ground," "trigger," "ready," "mode" and "digital" signals for digital-control flashes. 4P and 5P cords and adapters are incompatible with each-other.
