Vintage Connectors

     The following sync cord types are for true vintage cameras and strobes.   Only a few photographers who use pre-1970's camera equipment will ever need this information.   If you have any of these vintage cords please contact me as I would like to add them to my collection.

     The #'s on these pics are used to describe the ends of the connectors.   Each cable has two ends.  The chart below lists some corresponding usable brands.
