    Does anyone remember if this flash came with a PC cable? I have the one that came with my cactus radios, but it doesn't fit into the flash. However, I got the flash a while back and can't recall if it came with a cord, or if I'm tearing my house apart looking for something I don't have.

    It's been a long time since I bought a new 285HV, but they used to come with a 7-inch PC cable...

    According to B&H's website, they do come with a PC-1 Sync cord "Length: 1' (30 cm), straight"

    Happy hunting!

    I bought two 285Hv's and they both came with the pc cable.

    They do, and they have that finicky vivitar connector on one end and a pc connector on the other. You other option is to get a hot shoe to pc adapter, so you can just mount your flash to it and not use the jack.
