Anything else I need? The AlienBees™ B800 flash unit arrives with a 15-foot sync cord to connect the flash to your camera (so that pressing your camera shutter triggers that flash to fire simultaneously). You’ll need to check that your camera has a PC-sync input to connect this cord. If it doesn’t have this input, you’ll need to get our HSA Hot Shoe Adapter.
