M2 flash sync plug ID

Hi all, can someone tell me what kind of flash sync sockets I have on my M2?

I don't think they are 'standard' for the M2, but beyond that I'm stumped.

Thanks, Nick

Someone had the originals converted to the standardized PC sync. Had it done to my M2.

I don't think these are standard.
Probably upgraded sometime during the camera life.
You can see the standard plugs here:

Kaiser 201313 Flash Socket Adapter

This adapter converts the flash socket of the M1, M2, and M3 cameras to the universal PC flash sync socket.

Thanks thatís what I was thinking. Mine are definitely different to the M2 in the link.

So theyíre just standard PC plugs then? I donít actually want to use flash, I was just looking at getting some nice plug covers and need the right fit.

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to return them to the original M2 plugs?

If you do convert them to original, assuming you can find original plugs (probably DAG ... ), the M2 to PC adaptors are getting hard to find. Off course if you already have one, this is a pointless and redundant post. Sorry!
