Product Highlights
  • For SB-910, SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600, and SB-400 Flash & SU-800 Commander

The Nikon SC-29 is an off-camera flash cord that provides full TTL control for Nikon Speedlites when used with Nikon SLR cameras which have the TTL hot flash shoe. 3' long when coiled, it expands to 9', and permits easy use of flash when the camera is mounted upon a bracket.

In addition, the SC-29's AF Illuminator will also provide AF assistance to the camera in low-light conditions. This cord fully supports all advanced flash functions when used with the SB-910, SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600, and SB-400 with an applicable camera.

Some other improved features are: Posi-Lock (an improved locking switch) at both ends, and the cord on the camera shoe that now connects parallel to the camera.

    Metal shoe mounts, Locking mechanisms, AF Illuminator that is always pointed directly where it is needed even when your SB-800 or SB-600 is mounted on a bracket. Simply put, it does the job it was made to do, and it does it well. Quality Nikon Product. [...] The plastic used on this product does not build confidence in the cords durability. It may be preferable if Nikon would start making more products with metal housings. This cord also doesn't have the additional ports on the side to expand lighting possibilities as the SC-28, and the previous SC-17 cords have. Still, if you need a TTL cord for your Nikon equipment, and you own either a SB-800 or SB-600 this is a great choice.

    Good idea, but... the cable is too curly

    Cable is too curly and doesn't allow much space between camera and flash, and because its so tightly curled, its not safe on a light stand, it will spring the flash right off...Read complete review

    Cable is too curly and doesn't allow much space between camera and flash, and because its so tightly curled, its not safe on a light stand, it will spring the flash right off the stand.. would prefer a long straight cable instead. It does work though.

      Good for graduating into off camera shooting as well as a reliable source between camera and speed light. Can be placed on a lite stand for more usability of the hands and gives relief from long periods of holding your your arms while trying to get the best shot.

            I use this product whenever I need off camera flash to light a subject. It's perfect for eliminating that annoying second flash that results in having the in-camera flash open for wireless operation of my SB-910.

            One note: I did notice that the instructions say that there is lead used in the product and it advises people to wash their hands after use.

              I am a wedding photographer and use the cord to shoot with my flash on a bracket, love it for no shadows. This is my 4th one but it has been over many years and many weddings, they really stand the test of time but like anything sooner or later they have to be replaced.

                Getting your flash off the camera is often helpful. The SC-29 is useful to eliminate the extra light from the camera's flash in commander mode. It seems a little bulky due to the AF assist - not sure if that's necessary, but opted for the AF assist to prevent future regrets. The SC-28 seems less bulky, but no AF assist.

                    The Nikon SC-29 is very well made when compared with the other options currently available. It costs more but will hold up to long term use and the AF assist works every time. This item is truly a pay me now or pay me later type of purchase; non-OEM sometimes makes perfect sense by not for a Nikon off camera TTL with AF assist flash cord.

                            I originally bought this accessory as a way to change the angle of the SU-800 beam. However, I've also found this item useful when not shooting traditional off camera flash. Even with the SB-900 it can be very handy to use this in a pseudo off camera mode. With on camera flash in portrait orientation, shadows can sometimes be cast in a more prominent way due to the flash being to the side of the camera. This accessory will let you raise the flash to a higher position to avoid this problem - camera in one hand, flash in the other. You end up looking a bit extreme when doing this, but it works.

                              Comments about Nikon SC-29 TTL Off-Camera Shoe Cord with AF Assist - Coiled 3-9':

                              The Nikon cord has great construction and works exactly like you expect. It is long enough to move the flash off your camera and is fully functional with my Nikon flash and D300s camera.

                                  I bought it so that I can take my flash off the horseshoe - it is very easy to set up/use and serves the purpose beautifully.

                                  I say 5 stars because of the great construction of this TTL cord. It definitely FAR surpasses the Vello brand, in my opinion. I've yet to use it, but I have attached it already. The mount is firm, as it mounts with the screw, as opposed to sliding into a slot and anchoring with a bolt, putting pressure on the mounting gear. That ALONE is so much of an improvement over the Vello that I returned. I'm waiting to see if this cord really does sync my SB800 with my Nikon's computer. I believe it will and that I will be completely satisfied with it. Reading the specs, I was sold on this cord. I've been using Nikon for many years, and they don't make junk.
