Has anyone ever repair a defective hotshoe nauticam cable? I notice on the hotshoe adapter one pogo pin is broken. If someone could please help me identify the correct size for the pin I could save myself $110.

Thanks.

Two options:

- Cut the other two so they are all the same size (maybe file them too after cutting so they are not rough on the camera).
- Since you only need two pins (ground and trigger) to make the strobe work, you may be lucky and it may even work without the broken one.

Looking better at the pic, I see that they are retractible... It will probably make contact with some tin foil aluminum paper folded in the broken pin hole...
