Straddling the Line Between Genius and Insanity, Part Deux

Only once before in the 800+ post history of this blog has the above headline been awarded to a piece of DIY lighting gear. But I am resurrecting it for Finland-based reader Aki K.

Dude built his own DIY off-camera TTL cord from scratch. Folded-metal hot shoe and all.

Honestly, I really do not know what to say. Other than 'I'm not worthy.'
