More DIY photography stuff, this time a better version of the off shoe flash cord I did last year.

I wanted a flash cord for my camera that would have all the four pins to get all the information between the camera and the flash to go right. I didn't want to pay about 60 for a commercial one that has just two connectors and a cable so I decided to make it myself. The commercial one looks like this:
http://www.paramountcords.com/prodimages/shortsc28.jpg

First I started by cutting and shaping a piece of 1 mm thick aluminum to get a body for the flash shoe and after that I started building the connection part of it on a prototyping board (dot coppered). After all that was done I assembled them together and filled the hole thing with hot glue to give it some strength (I could have used epoxy for better strenght but didn't have any at hand). The tripod mount is done from a 4 mm thick piece of aluminum and then drilled and threaded.

Camera side of the thing is done from various pieces of plastic superglued together. I got the springs and studs from an old flash shoe adapter.

The connectors are PS/2 connectors (or mini-din, used in keyboards etc). I left the cables that short because I can use a normal PS/2 extension cable with this. Cost for this project was 0 (all the material I used were found by looking around the apartment) so now I can use the saved money to something else useful. :)
