    Old-style to PC adapters

    Years ago I had a bag of a dozen or so adapters, some one-piece (about 1" long) and others with about 4" - 6" cords that I could use with older cameras and LF shutters. There were several types, including bi-post, ASA/Bayonet, and other types of flash connectors, so that I could connect my small strobes to many of the older cameras that had an X setting.

    Well, somewhere about 14 years ago, they became lost during a move, and now I can't seem to find such adapters anywhere.

    Does anyone know of a source for them?

    Good Afternoon, Eugene,

    They pop up sometimes at camera shows. Otherwise, Paramount and E-Bay may be possibilities.

    Paramount is the source for all those unique cords.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Guess I'll have to try Paramount . . . have never seen the adapters on FleaBay, and I live in Arkansas which doesn't have camera shows as far as I know. I am a member of a statewide camera club, and they never have any notices in their newsletter about a camera show in this area.

    I have never heard of Paramount, but I suppose their website is something like Paramount.com or Paramountcamera.com?

    Their website is http://www.paramountcords.com/

    If they don't have it, you don't need it.

    Would that be W. Eugene Smith ?

    I'm answering this now, because I want to ask a question.

    I have some synch cords, that had screw-in inter-changeable connectors, for different cameras.

    Examples, would be the push-in connection for Rolleiflex, or the Kodak bayonet.

    Does anyone, possibly know, who manufactured this synch cord system ?
