I have serched this forum for this info and I know I saw something on it here but i just can't find it. A friend of mine is looking for that little adaptor that isolates the flash and the camera to protect it from the high voltages from the flash. Does anyone know the name of it and the place to get one of them..thanks ..

I think you're looking for a Wien Safe-Synch. It fits in the hot shoe and provides a pc syunch which is supposed to be safe.

There's more than one sort of thing that fits your description. Calumet Photo sells PC cords that have inline protectors, for instance, as well as standalone devices of various types. Any big online or retail seller should have them.

Here are a couple of the standalone stepdown gizmos:

Monoplug Safe Sync

Hot Shoe-PC Adapter with Safe-Sync

Just to add to the information database here, Paramount has been making specialized PC cords with a similar voltage protection setup for years too. I went the the Wein when it first became available many years ago. There are several different models so be sure you get the right one for your setup. Your other option is to forego using those pesky, always act up when you need them most, PC cords entirely and go with an Infra Red or radio slave. (then all you have to worry about is the batteries dying on you, a shoe breaking off, poor electrical connections, dropping them, banging them into something or that someone else is on your channel) No matter what route you go there are always going to be bumps in the road.

MY two cents.
