The 3' Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire Nikon flashes with i-TTL capabilities. Removing the flash from the camera's hot shoe allows the photographer to create unique and dramatic lighting styles that are not possible with a traditional shoe-mounted strobe. This coiled cord measures 3', which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Also, off-camera lighting reduces the harsh shadows commonly encountered with direct on-camera flashes and gives your photographs a more natural look.

One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount and the shoe has a locking knob to ensure your equipment is secure.

    I'm not sure how else this could be built better, I never saw the nikon version of this but I think for the price, nothing can beat this. It's well built, doesn't feel cheap and once I snap my sb900 on lock, it never misfires. I use it with a d700 for macro off camera shots, I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    I bought this to use with an off-brand flash that doesn't have wireless capabilities. The connection seems good when I use the cord, but it was very stiff and tightly coiled so I couldn't stretch it without it pulling on the connections. I pulled on it to stretch it out (just the middle parts, not the ends) and now it's much more flexible, although it's not quite as compact since it doesn't go back to the former, tightly-coiled position. This is fine with me-- I prefer a looser, more flexible cord to a tight one that pulls on the connections when extended. I still can't get 3 feet, but I am able to get about 2 1/2 feet comfortably which meets my needs.

        This product was purchased to being used with my Orbis Ring Flash Diffuser and it works very well. Coming to think about it now I should have maybe purchased a 3meter one.

                    I use the product for my table top photography and when I want to get the shadows just right. It works great with a reflector and the 3' cord is just the right length. Can't beat it for the price.

                      This device is simple to use. Attache it to the hot shoe and the flash. It worked great first time. Can't wait for warmer weather so I can use it on flowers and butterflies.

                      I have recently purchased the TTL flash cord as I make my way into the wonderful world of macro photography. The connections are spot on and the flashes connect as designed.

                      The flash cord was recommended to me by a friend of mine who happens to be a successful, professional landscape and nature photographer.

                      The flash cord allows the freedom to light your subject in very close quarters as the macro lens sometimes gets in the way of the on board flash. I was thrilled with the results evident in my first macro shoot utilizing the flash cord. Although not a Nikon product, it operates as well as, if not better than its' pricier competitor.

                      The TTL flash cord has opened up a whole new venue for my creative work exploring the world of insects, flora and fauna. As well, product shots for on line listings take on a whole new aspect.

                      In general, I would recommend the purchase of this product which I am sure will improve your use of lighting options.

                      In closing, I would also add the wonderful, expert and courteous advice given by the associates at B&H is greatly appreciated. A very satisfied and happy customer.

                        I bought this to use with an off-brand flash that doesn't have wireless capabilities. The connection seems good when I use the cord, but it was very stiff and tightly coiled so I couldn't stretch it without it pulling on the connections. I pulled on it to stretch it out (just the middle parts, not the ends) and now it's much more flexible, although it's not quite as compact since it doesn't go back to the former, tightly-coiled position. This is fine with me-- I prefer a looser, more flexible cord to a tight one that pulls on the connections when extended. I still can't get 3 feet, but I am able to get about 2 1/2 feet comfortably which meets my needs.

                        I looked at the Nikon flash cord and wondered why it was so expensive in comparison. Only thing I can figure is the Nikon name. This cord does everything I've tried so far and look well put together. Other reviews were hpful in making my decision. Good value

                        The hot-shoe connector is really really tight to use. I would prefer a little smoother to put it in though. It is better tight than loose.

                              I usually buy name brand items and pay the premium for it. I have cautiously bought Vello items recently and have been impressed with the quality and the price. I will never hesitate to buy Vello again.

                                I wanted a way to have off-camera flash with my digital camera. I sought the best of digital automation and the flexibility of off-camera flash, especially to reduce red eye. This unit provides that, at a very reasonable cost. It's an ideal length for my use and is well made, giving me the peace of mind that it is durable.
                                I like it a lot. Shipping was rapid and at a reasonable amount.

                                    After buying 3 Nikon SC28's in the last two years I figured why not try this one at 25% of the price. I use a Graslon Prodigy diffuser on my SB900 so the extra weight seems to make the metal hotshoe crack the plastic. Tried the 1.5' version of this in March and its holding up much better then the SC28's so I got a 3' for backup. Seems the way to go....four of these vs one SC28. Always worry about using non Nikon products but in this case it hasn't been a "Well no wonder why its so much cheaper like most Nikon knock off products seem to be.

                                    Works just like the Nikon. Slightly larger head.

                                      email a question about what I was looking for and what would fit my current equipment. TTL Cord exceeded what I thought would come in and everything works great together.

                                      I recently picked up 2 of these when I was in a bit of a jam. Overall I am very pleased with them. They work perfectly as far as performance goes, the only problem I have noticed that I haven't encountered with such pieces in the past is that they tend to loosen from my brackets very often. I am not sure if it something about the thread on the screws, but I am constantly tightening them to keep my flash stable and secure. If you don't mind keeping an eye out for some movement of your flash, they will treat you well, especially for the price!

                                          Quality is good, functions fine. Slightly short and cord is a bit tight. If you don't need a lot of length, save some money and grab this one.
