The 3' Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire Canon flashes with E-TTL / E-TTL II capabilities. Removing the flash from the camera's hot shoe allows the photographer to create unique and dramatic lighting styles that are not possible with a traditional shoe-mounted strobe. This coiled cord measures 3', which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Also, off-camera lighting reduces the harsh shadows commonly encountered with direct on-camera flashes and gives your photographs a more natural look.
One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount and the shoe has a locking knob to ensure your equipment is secure.

I use it with my 430 EX. The cable feels like good quality and haven't had any of the issues I was having the OC-e3 (I generally like Canon but for some reason their cable just isn't stable even though its way more expensive). Being able to remove the flash off my camera creates a lot of room to play with the lighting and the cord is the perfect length if I am holding it or it is really close. If it would be a little longer I would be able to try some of the things I had in mind that now the cable is a bit too short. That is the only improvement I would like to see. Other than that it is all I can ask for.
