Questions? Ask our experts:

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.

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

    I have used off brands before, and didnt always get the best exposure. Using this for the 1st time, it was great, I put images through the bridge for fast look and the outdoor exposures were great. I shoot on manual on camera, and TTL for flash rich exposures with detail.

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

        It pays to get this cord for two reasons: 1. High quality for good durability. 2. It allows for AF beam assist, and not all TTL cords do this. It's a little extra, but with most tools, it is worth the investment.

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

        The assisted AF is helpful when desired to be used. The regual sc-29 w/ out assist is perfectly adequate. the extra cost was justifiable in my circumstance. Extremely, usful tool to have on shoot. Get your flash off our camera! This is one way to do it!

            I use this cord with the Nikon SB-910 flash unit and I love that by using this cord, the flash and camera communicate when it comes to settings. The only down side is the length of the cord. I use a flash bracket to get the flash off the camera and the cord is too long and flaps about. I tend to wrap it around the flash bracket.

              My Df lacks a AF illuminator and a built-in flash. Using this cord adds a lot of functionality to my set-up and lets me find focus in ridiculously dark venues.

                      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.

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

                        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.
