    Bulb socket to PC on Graphic 4x5

    Does anyone have a way to go from a twin post (old) bulb socket (to a flash-bulb gun) on a Graphic 4x5 camera to a modern PC connector? A fellow at a camera store indicated "Oh, that is easy just get some aligator clips and wire with a male PC connector, splice together and that is all there is to it"!

    Not wanting to reinvent a wheel here, if there is something mfg. by someone or a design to follow, that is probably best route.

    Thanks for your help.

    www.paramountcords.com, they can fabricate whatever to whatever. But I do believe they stock what you are asking for as a standard item.

    Yep, I bought a bipost-to-PC adapter cord from Paramount a few months back. It's one of ther regular stock items.

    Thanks for your help, I found paramountcords in their website and have made an inquiry to them. Also, after using 'inferior' type cords that crapout when you least expect them, it is good to find a dedicated company that really understands flash equipment.
