Product Highlights
  • Replaces #3298

The Manfrotto 262 Nikon Flash Adapter converts a 1/4"-20 flash accessory into a shoe mount, and allows off-camera shoe cords like the Nikon SC-17, SC-28, and SC-29 to be mounted upon brackets that only feature a 1/4"-20 screw. It is also popular for use as a "sacrificial" shoe mount to put under an off-camera cord which already has a shoe underneath, so that wear & tear occurs upon this piece as opposed to the more fragile and expensive cord itself.

Replaces old part number 3298.

      This is a must if you have any type of off shoe cord with a plastic base on it. You might get away with out one with a light flash, however if you have a heavy one just buy it. This product in my opinion is over priced for a 30 cent washer and 15cent screw. B&H has it priced competitively against their competers, however the company that makes it is charging way to much in my opinion. This is still a must to have with the off shoe cords with plastic bases, I can not repeat that enough. Also do not even bother to try to get by cheaper by going to the hardware store and find a work around, I spent enough time finding out that will not work. Just go ahead and buy one, I have one for every off shoe cord.

      Yes, the photo shows what is included & I didn't have time to get to a hardware store to save $5 on this item prior to receiving it.

      The clearance it provides on a Nikon with a flash bracket and SC-29 adapter works.

      I got one of these guys for each of my pocket wizard flex tt5. It prevents costly hot shoe repairs on the pocketwizards in the future.

          Comments about Manfrotto 262 Nikon Flash Adapter:

          I've been looking for a small QR system to go with my mirrorless and P&S cameras that won't interfere with the battery door and this fits the bill very nicely. I use an RS-3119 RPS accessory shoe as the base. What's key about this little foot is the rough surface that prevents it from rotating easily.

                So simple added these to my Pocket Wizard Flex TT5's so that I didn't break the built in hot shoe. Just screwed these into the mount of the TT5, nice and durable.

                      Comments about Manfrotto 262 Nikon Flash Adapter:

                      This product works to adapt your nikon flash cord to "slide on" instead of "screw on" whatever your want to attach the cord to. In my case, I wanted to use it on a large softbox and there was no way to screw the cord on the holder for the softbox and the way the Nikon cord is designed as it can only be used with a screw. The screw on this adaptor screws into the bottom of your flash cord between the silver metal part and you can then slide the silver metal part onto whatever you are attaching it to. I made sure I carried a screwdriver on my wedding shoot, so that I could "un-screw" it off, when I needed to change it off my softbox and "re-attach" it to my flash bracket as the cord can screw on my flash bracket as originally designed.

                        I got these to use with my pocket wizard flextt5's of wich I have six. After my light stand blew over on a shoot and breaking the hot shoe (it happens to everyone or will happen) I got these to mount to the PW and they work great!

                                    A must have and well built. The pieces are heavy duty metal hold the flash securely.

                                      I use the 262 Nikon Flash Adapter by Manfrotto to set my flash on a bracket. B&W film is still my passion, so I use my FM2A with flash, but since I got a bracket as a gift from former student, I really knew that I wanted to use it with SC-17 cord and the flash.

                                      Even when it looks like as simple... it is strong... so not worry about problems getting loose.

                                      I only do not like that the peace is not angled as is an actual hot shoe. Sometimes It makes me feel that it may slip off the bracket.

                                        I bought this adapter after purchasing a similar product off a popular auction site. Unlike the one I bought off the auction site, this adapter holds solid to the base of accessory and doesn't spin loose when the flash cord tugs on it.

                                        I've used this with a SU-800, SB-600, and SC-28. Mounted on flash stands and on a Stroboframe.

                                        Don't bother trying to DIY or go with cheap(er) imitations - I wish I bought this first before I tried those methods.

                                            This is something Nikon should have done from day one -- makes the SC-XX cord work on my Stroboframe flash-shoe bracket. It's not quite perfect though. The screw head protrudes a bit where I believe it should be flat. Otherwise, well made and well worth the price.
