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

      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.

          Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Nikon SLR - 3' (1 m):

          When I bought this it had a simple competitor - Nikon. I think theirs was $ - whatever it was the price difference was enormous for a simple cable that allows me to convey TTL info to my speedlight (my gripe about Nikon not providing wireless TTL and how awful their IR system is would make for a whole article itself). There's nothing wrong with this - the price is far better, it feels sturdy, the toggles are firm. There's really nothing else to say about a cable. A photographer tried to come up with reasons this one was cheaper but couldn't so he went and bought some.

            Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Nikon SLR - 3' (1 m):

            My Nikon brand cord failed at the strain relief on the accessory shoe. The Vello cord is available in three different sizes and I can't see that much difference between the Nikon and Vello products other than the cost. One thing to note is the specified length of the cord refers to a fully extended cord. I mainly use my cord to position the flash on a bracket so the three foot size is perfect. When not extended this cord is just over 12" long.

                This replaced my cord stress relief failed Nikon SC-29. Looks heartier, additional options (like the flash release) and for a fraction of the price. Thanks B&H for the recommendation!

                    There isn't too much to say about this flash cord. TTL works flawlessly, connections are good (not too tight or too loose), the lock lever works, and the product looks and feels solid. I have no complaints.

                        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.
