The FL-CB04 cable is for connecting the 5 pin "off-camera" flash fitting
to a unit having a PC type connection.
My problem may be that the old "Twinklite" that I was using isn't

I'm heading into Seattle today and will make a stop at Glazers, the pro
shop there, and see if they can dope it out.
Thanks very much,
