Product Highlights
  • Works with Canon, Nikon/Fuji, & Pentax/Samsung Evaluative Preflash TTL Systems

The Nissin SC-01 Universal Shoe Cord is a coiled off-camera shoe cord which has multiple contact points.  It will transmit the preflash-metering commands of Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Pentax, and Samsung SLR cameras just as if you were using the manufacturer's own cord.

It will properly transmit the same commands to the manufacturer's original flash units, as well as to third-party flashes from Nissin, Sunpak, Sigma, etc.

Nissin thought to put a second flash shoe atop the camera-connection-end of this cord, and that allows you to quickly bring your shoe-cord-mounted flash to above the camera's viewfinder without needing to disconnect the flash from the cord.

Perfectly transmits the evaluative-preflash TTL metering commands of Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Pentax, and Samsung SLR cameras
A second hotshoe atop camera-end coupling allows placing the cord-mounted flash atop the camera position, without needing to remove flash from cord
Comes with full Nissin USA warranty

        I'm using this cord to connect my Nissin Di466 to my Panasonic Lumix LX5. while it doesn't work with TTL it will still fire off in manual mode. This makes it useful enough for my purposes. TTL would make it perfect.

            This thing didn't even last through one wedding. I have yet to find an off-camera cord that lasts for more of a day...I may have to go with the Canon cord which doesn't get good durability ratings either...Using with a 580EX2 flash and 7D.

                It's about time somebody made a shorter TTL cable for us bracket users. I'm still surprised that Nikon hasn't caught on yet and made 2'. Everything works great so far. The switch may be useful, but I haven't used it yet.

                  I got this cord to use with the newton bracket and being 5ft versus Nikons 9ft cords makes it perfect for the bracket!

                  Two flashes can't be fired at once

                    Comments about Nissin SC-01 Coiled Universal Off-Camera Shoe Cord (5'/1.5m):

                    It's nicely built and all, but it only says it won't fire two flashes at once (or a flash and a transmitter in my case) in the accompanying manual, not on the box exterior. [...]. I bought this item in Japan where it was cheaper than the SC-28, but here in the US the SC-28 is a better value. The coiled cord however is shorter in length than the SC-17/SC-28/SC-29 cords from Nikon, so flash bracket users (like myself) may opt for the SC-01 instead of having a SC-28 shortened at a cost higher than the cord itself.
