I've been on the verge of buying PWs for my Nikon strobes, but have been hesitant until the new Plus III model came out.

So, I have a few questions bundled in this post:

1) I can't find any information as to how they connect to the SB-800s. It's obvious that they don't have a hot shoe.

Do they use the provided Mono 3.5mm Miniphone to Locking PC Cable?

2a) The other side of the coin is how does it connect with the D600 camera IF I don't want to attach it to the hot shoe?

2b) My other cameras are the D2X and D200, so the same question would apply. However, the D600 with FX has become my new portrait camera.

Sometimes I need to use on-camera flash (the mounted SB-800, not the pop-up) and turn off the softboxes with SB-800s.

3) On a side note, it would appear the PW Plus III would not work with the Nikon SB-600... correct? incorrect?

Thanks,
