    I use the skyport but the biggest problem is the cable/pc cord from my older "C" lens and the skyport I have velcroed to the side of the 'blad body.

    The sync connections on "C" lenses are notoriously temperamental. I even have a few "Hasselblad tip" PC cables I got from Paramount and those work with a pack setup but they are household end so you either need an adapter or a dedicated PC to 1/8th mini phone cable for a skyport universal trigger. Most of the the PC ends on the PC to miniphone cables aren't long enough to fully make a good connection on the "C" lense socket.

    You usually end up with gaffers tape to get the PC to connect fully. A Pocket wizard will have the same issues so just make sure you get several PC to mini phone connectors in hopes one will work.

    Good luck.

    Any wireless triggers from any manufacturer will need to be connected to the sync socket on the lens because the 500c and c/m has no hot shoe that is HOT.

    The later versions from Zeiss (CF etc) have a better sync connector but I'm shooting all "C" T* lenses so I'm stuck with the older style connector.
