Product Highlights
  • For all Dedicated Flash units for use with Nikon Cameras

The VIV-FC-NIK Digital Off-Shoe Flash Cord is for all dedicated flash units for Nikon cameras. One end of the cord plugs into the hotshoe of the camera, and the other has a hotshoe connection for the flash. This allows the flash to be removed from the camera's hot shoe for creative lighting, but the flash still communicates with the camera.

      I wanted to have a side mount for my camera for wedding photography. I created my own and used this flash cord to mount the flash on the side. It works great and there is no delay from camera to flash. It relays all information from the camera to the flash just as if the flash was mounted on top of the hot shoe on my camera.

      DOES NOT fit Nikon SB 700 Flash

      The ONLY off camera cords for the SB 700 and SB 900 is the Nikon SC-28 TTL remote cord. 9 feet of cord! :(

      Comments about Vivitar Digital Off-Shoe Flash Cord for Nikon Cameras:

      I use this cord in connection with a Stroboflash Flip 350 bracket with my Nikon SB-800 flash and D800 camera. It connects my camera and flash efficiently and flawlessly, maintaining all Nikon operations while taking strain off the camera's hot shoe and getting the flash away from the lens axis. It does so at less than one-third the cost of the Nikon SC-29 cord. With the bracket, it helps reduce shadows and red eyes - a win-win product.

        Comments about Vivitar Digital Off-Shoe Flash Cord for Nikon Cameras:

        I was afraid my flash would mess up the hot shoe in the camera so after byuing a flash bracket I did research on the off-shoe cords and it was a no brainer - best price for a well known name - VIVITAR.

                Comments about Vivitar Digital Off-Shoe Flash Cord for Nikon Cameras:

                Just got it and have been experimenting with it. Seems to work as advertized. I have a lot to learn about single off camera flash lighting but it is fun so far. The cord is long enough to allow for a lot of movement of the flash. Seems sturdy and well built so far. My only complaint....I would have positioned the cord at the back of the slave unit, not front. But then, I'm sure others prefer it in the front.

                  I absolutely love this cord, I'm able to remove my flash and place it where it needs to be to get the lighting perfect without spending lots of money on expensive lights. I can also take it with me outside to use as a fill flash and not get the extreme overexposure lighting. definitely worth getting if you have a removable flash. Love,Love,Love the cord

                        Though the wireless systems are far nicer to use, the line of sight requirement can be a bit of a hinderence. If you can't afford a nice radio transmitter, this will give you at least some flexability to get that flash off the camera.

                            I actually like this cord better than the Nikon version, which I also own and which is much more expensive. The only problem I've ever had with it is that the plastic foot on the off-camera end occasionally breaks, but that's under hard use like crowds when it's getting bumped around a bit.

                                    This cord adds versatility to my new flash by offering options to the camera hot shoe. I mount the flash off-camera on a bracket to help eliminate shadows and red eye. The thing I've found that I don't like is that the camera end of the cord can easily be mounted backward, and the camera can't communicate with the flash.

                                    I wanted to have a side mount for my camera for wedding photography. I created my own and used this flash cord to mount the flash on the side. It works great and there is no delay from camera to flash. It relays all information from the camera to the flash just as if the flash was mounted on top of the hot shoe on my camera.

                                    Great to have for bounce flash work, its a little short but can be stretched out to one's arms length.
