    Extending Your Off-Camera Shoe Cord

    Off Camera Shoe Cord

    • The single best tip with regard to flash photography I ever got was to get the flash off the camera. Built in flash units and even external flash speediness mounted on the cameras hot shoe can leave your subjects with flat, harsh light and red eyes. It was this reason that I purchased a off camera shoe cord.
    • If you have never seen or used an off camera shoe cord before, it does just as the name suggests. It allows you to move the flash off the camera. By connecting one end to your cameras hot shoe and the other to your flash you retain all the same features and abilities that you would if the flash was attached, but with the added bonus of being able to move it away from the camera axis. It is this small adjustment that gave my photos a much more pleasing look and completely eliminated red-eye.

    • But there was one small problem. The one and only cord my manufacturer sold was a mere two feet (60 cm) long. This was OK if I wanted to use a flash bracket, or was going to stand extremely close to my light stand. But I had bigger plans. I wanted to use my speedier with a small soft box or umbrella, and I wanted to freedom to be able to move myself and the light where ever I wanted. And I wanted to do it without buying more equipment. The bottom line is two feet wasn't going to cut it.
    • After some searching around I was came to the conclusion that I had two options if I wanted a longer shoe cord. First was a third party website that bought and modified the cords to be longer and then resold them. They seemed to be of good quality, and the reviews were positive, but they were not cheap and I had already spent a fair amount on the flash cord I already had. So I was left with only one option, modify the cord myself.

    • I found a lot of spotty information on the web from other folks who had done similar things to their shoe cords. Then I came across an article from someone who used a Ethernet cable and a couple of jacks to extend their cord. It was brilliant and fit perfectly into both my budget and what I felt was my own personal skill level. So I headed out to the hardware store to pick up my supplies. When I got home I started what was both one of the scariest and most satisfying projects I have ever done.
    • I say scariest because there are some obvious risks involved in this type of project. I would be cutting my (not cheap) flash shoe cord and splicing it together with an Ethernet cable and jacks. Because this cord carries electrical signals from the flash to the camera there was the risk that I could damage my flash, my camera, or both. In the end everything turned out fine and I have been using my modified cord for many months now with no problems what so ever. But everyone should be aware there is a potential for some very bad things to happen to your gear should you decide to do this yourself.

    Canon Off Camera Cord

    • The first step was to gather my supplies. All of them can be found at your typical hardware or DIY store. I used two Cat5e Ethernet jacks, some electrical tape, a Cat5e Ethernet cable (any length you want), and a sharp knife.
    • Step one was to cut my Off Camera Shoe Cord in half. Inside I found five different colored wires and some bare copper grounding wire. I twisted the copper grounding wire into three strands because there was so much of it. I was concerned it would not fit neatly into the jack. I didn't have to do anything with the other wires because the jack was designed to cut through the shielding and make the connection on its own.

    • The next step was to push the colored wires and the three strands of copper wire into the jack using the supplied tool. When I was done I trimmed off any excess wire as close to the jack as I could. I then repeated the process for the other half of my shoe cord. It was imperative that both ends were exactly the same. When it was all said and done I didn't want the red wire to connect to the green one or something similar. This was all made very easy because not only were the wires in the shoe cord colored, the places on the Ethernet jack were all clearly labeled. I simply made sure that the colors and labels matched up on each side.

    • After that came my attempt at making it all look nice and to seal it up as best as I could. For this I used the electrical tape. It wasn't easy to wrap up going from a small coiled wire to a square jack. But as you can see it didn't turn out all that bad. I used a fair amount of tape and I check it frequently to this day. My biggest concern was that something was going to come lose and short out. But so far I have not had any problems.
    • From there it was just a matter of connecting the respective ends to the camera and flash and using whatever size Ethernet cable I wanted to bridge the space between them. To date I have used up to 100 feet of cable and it hasn't shown any signs of loosing sync or misfiring. I probably could make it a little more visually appealing by using a black cable. But the blue works just fine and I am more concerned with the function over the form.

    • All told the project cost me about $20 and took less than a half hour to complete and as I said earlier has been one of the most satisfying photography related things I have ever done. It has also been very practical as I use the cord often. The senior graduation picture below was taken using a small soft box with a speedier on a light stand connected to my camera with my modified shoe cord while I was about 35 feet away. Something I would have never been able to do with the original two foot off camera shoe cord.

00:17:57 02-29-2012 Useful off-camera cord Overall:  
  • Pros: Perfect length for a flash bracket. Way cheaper than paying for the Canon branded version. Works like it should.
  • Cons: The cord needs to be tightened a lot on the camera shoe or else it won't register that the flash is attached.
  • Other Thoughts: Great item for the price. Pros (cost, functionality) outweigh the con.

00:00:00 02-27-2011 Great device Overall:  
  • Other Thoughts: I have been taking pictures for over forty years and I had used the off camera shoe code for years with my 35mm equipment. Waited too long before buying this one for my digital gear, but I am happy finally bought it. There is not much to say about this, since there were no other alternatives for me. Simply stated, I went for the lowest price I could find!
