    1) I have a Metz flash: 45 CT-1 and a Hasselblad 500c
    and a Sekonic L-358 light meter and I need a sync cord to connect them
    all so I can get a reading off the flash...what sync cord would you

    and 2) with I the 45-CT 1 Flash and I want to buy a diffuser for it...something like a soft box as I am a baby & child photographer and want something that will be soft and bright. What would you suggest?

    Thanks so much for your time!

    Where am I now?

    If you try the Metz site you will find that they do 5 different synch cords for connection to a camera. The same lead will plug in to the Sekonic.
    I have three cords, including the very long one - which is best for connection to the meter.
    Metz used to do a clip on soft box but it was discontinued about 25 years ago. There are third party ones around but those I've seen are tacky.
    I use the bounce board diffuser (Mecabounce). I've used it professionally for portraits on location for... a very long time. I have the 65 CT-1 and slave head.
