Re: Smart Accessory Terminal OFF CAMERA CABLE

...thanx, and you are correct, but the universal hot shoe will not support I-TTL flash, its merely a flash trigger...  I'm looking for a dedicated off camera cable for the smart accessory terminal ??? I'm trying to shoot flash TTL, off camera, via an off camera cable
