    I'm looking for a handful of pc sync to miniphone (3.5mm) cords. They don't need to be long, just six inches or so. If you've got any laying around that I could buy for a reasonable price I'd be grateful. I had three of them and of course it's always the small pieces and parts of your kit that go missing and keep you from being able to shoot.

    If you don't find any Paramount Cords would likely have it, otherwise be able to make anything you need. I had a six inch custom cord made recently and it was about $20.

    Also try Paul C. Buff. I use those exact cords for connecting Nikon speedlight strobes to their Cybersync radio triggers.

    Thanks for the advice. I used to live near a camera shop and they had a great used section with tons of little parts. I remember buying two chords in case I lost one of them and it was a dollar for the pair. They had literally hundreds of every kind of sync cord you could think of. Now I'm regretting not buying more.

    Hahah I found them. Turns out they weren't lost I just have too many pockets in my camera bag. Now they're safely stored with all my other radio trigger cords.

    I've become extremely forgetful so I've developed some coping mechanisms to help deal with that. One such mechanism is to ALWAYS put certain items in precisely the same place EVERY TIME. You know the old adage, "I'd lose my own head if it wasn't screwed on"... backwards in my case.
