    I got a SCA390 adaptor for my Hasselblad to use Flash TTL but it misses the cable to connect the adaptor to the sync terminal on the lens. Now i thought i could build a cable myself. Given the socket on the SCA the cable seems to need a 2.5mm (3/32"?) jack plug. Does anybody know whether this is a two-conductor or three conductor plug and how it is connected to the pc-sync plug on the other side?

    I tried a two-conductor plug, because flash sync would obviously need only two but the flash wouldn't fire. I checked for a faulty sync terminal on the lense, so its either a faulty cable, wrong wiring or wrong plug.

    Hello

    I suppose you use Metz flash.
    I have a 503CW and Metz 45CL-4 flash.
    SCA390 connects to the camera body and the lens.
    Another SCA300A (which attaches to the top of SCA390) connects to the Metz flash.

    For the missing cable,you need a PC to miniphone jack cable.(second link above)

    I hope this helps you.

    Please let me know if you still have a question.

    Also you ask Metz directly (3rd link above),he is very helpful.
