    I'm using a Kodak Commerial Ektar 14" in an Ilex 5 shutter with my LF camera, and I was wondering if there was any way to use a flash / strobe system with it.
    The lens seems to have something called a ASA flash sync socket, and I was wondering if there is any cable that will convert that to a common PC sync port.

    Any help appreciated.

    Supposedly Paramount makes or made one. I couldn't find it on their site with a search for "asa to pc", but here's the Google results. Apparently they are occasionally available on Ebay.
