    Well, I just bought a Elan 7 off of Ebay... can't wait for it to show up. Any ways, I have one question that I need to find the answer to. It shouldn't be too hard:

    The Elan does not have a PC output. No big deal, however, I want to run a non dedicated flash on a bracket. Meaning, I need a PC output. I'm sure they make them... in fact, I've seen Nikon's. I just need to know one that will work with my camera and preferably cheap. (I'm just spent 350, and am a about to spend another 350 on more accessories)

    My main problem, I'm going to order all my stuff from BH, and looking through there I only see the one Nikon that seems like it does what I need it to do. (It's out of stock, and I am unsure of the compatiblity) Every other one seems like it's for cameras with a PC output and no hotshoe... I need it the other way around. Any reccomendations? Also, will the TTL flash control work through the PC cord? I'm still a newbie :?

    Thanks in advanced guys.... and girls. ;)
