Footnote for those that have multiple camera systems:

Don't try to use the TTL Shoe Cord T0.6M on a non-OM camera body! Unlike the T-series flash heads, the foot on the cord lacks the forward plastic pin to raise the "flash ready" and "flash quench" contacts. It can short out the two additional contacts. In addition, it can also become nearly impossible to remove from the shoe as they will hang up on the thin metal plate that surrounds the center contact.

I discovered this the hard way by not looking at the foot first and had to disassemble the hot shoe on top of a medium format SLR prism to extract it.

Or (on a 2N etc.) Shoe 4 and TTL Shoe Cord T0.6M (This cord has a ttl plug
at one end and a device that slides into the hot shoe)  Will also work with
a plain 2 and Shoe 3, and of course, PC, 2S, OM-4, 4T, 4Ti.
With OM-1, 1N, 10, G, 20, F and OM-30,  will provide sync for regular auto
flash (these models don't have ttl auto flash control).
