Flash Sync port on Canon RP? What cable should I use?

Guys,

 

My friend has a 5D Mark II and was willing to lend me her studio flash.

Turns out the cable is PC/P2... and my RP doesn't have that port...

I Googled but I don't find any suitable cable for doing so...

Can someone indicate me the cable I should use for that purpose? With images if it's not asking too much...

Thank you!

I have never heard of PC/P2 but PC sync connections are very common. You can buy an PC adapter for your hotshoe. Then just add a PC cable for the length you need.

So there's no way I can connect it to a USB-C port or P2?

USB-C, no. What is a P2?

The same as we have in headphones

If using 3.5mm (1/8) cables, be sure to check if the equipment would require mono or stereo.  Some equipment could get damaged if using the wrong type.

The Vello adapter has both connections. They call 3.5mm (1/8”) mini phono port and a PC socket sync port. I have never heard of a 3.5mm plug being called P2.
