Product Highlights
  • For Nikon Speedlights with TTL Hot Shoe
  • Maintains Full TTL Connection
  • 3' (1 m) Coiled Cord
  • Mounts to Flash Shoe
  • Mounts to 1/4"-20 Threaded Studs
  • Reduce Harsh Shadows
  • Compares to Nikon SC-28

The Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire off-camera Nikon speedlights. 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.

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.

This coiled cord measures 3' (1 m), allows for handheld shooting at arm's length, and provides extra length for flash brackets with longer positioning arms.

Other available lengths are:

  • 1.5' (0.5 m) - ideal for hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket
  • 6.5' (2 m) - accommodates keeping the flash mounted on a lightstand with an umbrella, while staying in close proximity
  • 33' (10 m) Universal TTL Cord - ideal for a hard wired solution with more range of motion

    Compatibility
    For Nikon SLR/DSLR cameras with a TTL hot shoe and Speedlights SB-900, SB-800, SB-700, SB-600, SB-400, SB-80DX, SB-50DX, SB-28DX, SB-28, SB-27, SB-26, SB-25, SB-24, and SB-22.
    Off-Camera Lighting
    Off-camera lighting can reduce harsh shadows of direct on-camera flash and gives your images a more natural look.
    3' (1 m) Coiled Cord
    Its 3' (1 m) length accommodates off-camera hand-held technique
Cord Length 3' (1.0 m) extended
1' (35 cm) relaxed

      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.

      My Nikon Speedlight flash slides easily into the D7000 hotshoe. It required excessive force to attach this cable to the camera and then was extremely difficult to remove. I cannot risk damage to the camera and have tried two of these cables with the same result. Perhaps there is "bad batch" since I saw another photographer experienced the same metal tongue too thick issue.

        It does work as advertised, and the fit was good on my Nikon D7100 with SB-700 flash. 3' is the fully extended length, the coils are bit tight so it took a bit of breaking in to get my flash very far off camera (if you want your flash on a separate tripod get the longer cable).

            Makes the electrical connection just like the more expensive name brand. Appears to be durable. I have used it for only a hundred or so flashes thus far, but the TTL is working fine without a glitch.

              I don't use flash often but being able to move my flash around creates endless possibilities. I used it this weekend to backlit flowers and I was able to get creative shooting portraits.

                this was part of my "wishlist" for quite some time now. finally decided to purchase it and put it to immediate use. did a family photoshoot Saturday around noon and the sun was causing some harsh shadows. this along with my Nikon flash & warm gel worked wonders! played with different angles and finally got the shots I wanted.

                    Some 3rd party products are worth it, some are not. This one is absolutely worth saving some cash on. Connected easily to a 3rd party flash for nikon slr. Tight coil for a bracket mount flash too and just enough if you need to hold it.

                      It does what its supposed to do. I should've bought a longer one, but I'm still happy with this one because it's compact.

                                I purchased this to replace an old flash cord that didn't allow TTL communication between my new flash (Sunpak PZ42X) and my new camera (Nikon D3100). This cord did the trick, and at a better price than the Nikon brand. Now my stuff works. Happy.

                                  PENSE QUE ERA DE BAJA CALIDAD, PERO RESULTO BIEN CONSTRUIDO, FUNCIONA A LA PERFECCION.

                                  Bought this just for fun, different light angles. No issues connection or disconnecting, smooth. Great for arm length shooting, jut wish I went with the 2m version for a little extra length, but product works just as described.

                                  Actually, I am quite surprised that it was so well built. Even has locking switch just like my Nikon flash. Nikon would be proud of this accessory. Had I known it would be this good, I'd have gotten the longer version.
