    I recently bought a stroboframe for my canon 30D, and now I need a flash cable. What is out there that I could use to connect a canon 30D and a 580EX speedlite flash?

    Thanks.

    I had a flash up on an L bracket before, and it used the PC sync cable.

    I might be wrong but I think that the Canon off camera shoe cord 2 would fit the bill. One end in the hot shoe and t'other in the base of the 580. Full dedication is maintained.

    Thanks andy and switchfx.

    Looking into it more now, I believe the "flash sync cord" is what I was looking for. The PC sync cable is something different.
