    Before I buy a leaf shutter lens for my Pentax 645 and AF280T flash (hot shoe attachment only), I want to know that a sync cord is available. It seems that the dedicated Pentax LS sync cord is really hard to find. Are there non-Pentax altnernatives out there? Can I put one together from a "standard" hot shoe and cord? Thanks!:smile:

    Check at www.paramountcords.com

    They make custom cords of nearly any type. Although they may seem pricey, their cords are also the very best quality you can get--and you can tell that immediately in the gauge of wires, the construction of the terminals, et cetera.
