OCF 3′/1m Coiled Cord For Canon ETTL, Similar to Canon OC-E3 Cord

Our OCF Coiled Cord is an affordable alternative to Canon OC-E3 cord. It stretches to 3′/1m and then springs back to about 1′/34cm. This is the perfect length when using your Canon Speedlite in a flash bracket or when holding your Speedlite at arms-length.

Like our 16′ and 33′ straight cords, our coiled cord is designed so that the pins on the camera-end match the pin formation on a Canon Speedlite. Likewise, the flash-end of the cord provides a duplicate of the hotshoe connections found on your Canon camera.

Our OCF cords carry the full E-TTL communication between your Canon camera and your Canon Speedlite. Other cords, such as the common PC-Sync cord, cannot carry the E-TTL communication and, hence, only fire your Speedlite in manual mode. With our OCF cords, you can fire your Speedlite in any mode that is normally available:

  • E-TTL (Canon’s automatic mode)
  • Manual
  • Multi/Stroboscopic.

A unique feature to the Canon Speedlite system is that you can control the Speedlite from the LCD of your camera (provided that you have a 40D or newer camera and a 580EX II, 430EX II, 320EX, or 270 EX II). With an OCF cord, you can put your Speedlite in hard-to-reach spots (like inside a softbox) and control it from the back of your camera. You can switch between E-TTL and Manual and then change the power of your Speedlite from your camera. You can even change the Zoom setting on your Speedlite from your camera!

Like to shoot flash in the rain? The camera-end of our OCF cord features a weather seal just like the foot of the Canon 580EX II Speedlite. Likewise, the hotshoe-end is contoured so that the weather seal on the Speedlite fits perfectly.
