Use the x-sync port for connecting external devices for activating the trigger.

I want to use my V6 triggers for high speed purposes. 
Therefore I have an idea to use a V6 trigger as interface for several different kind of devices which should activate the trigger.
Can I connect devices on the X-sync port to activate the trigger?
Could you provide me some info (datasheet) concerning the x sync port? 


  • Have more or less the same question. I can use the sync port to trigger flashes from my flash meter. But I would like to use a timer to trigger BULB exposures. So I would need to convert from the 2.5mm stereo plug of my remote release and timer to that 3.5 plug. I tried a stereo 2.5 to 3.5 adapter but it doesn't work.
  • @HvD, yes you can device to the X-sync port of the V6 set to TX mode by using a 3.5 cable such as this one:

    @bwing the Bulb Mode on the V6 requires the press and hold of the Test Button so unfortunately this cannot be done through the 3.5mm port.

    Thank you!
