Product Highlights
  • Compatible with Nikon i-TTL
  • Coiled Cord
  • Mounts to Flash Shoe
  • Mounts to 1/4"-20 Threaded Studs
  • Allows Off-Camera Triggering of Flash

The 6.5' 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 6.5', which accommodates shooting with the flash mounted on a lightstand and with an umbrella, while staying in close proximity. 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 use this when doing certian photo shots, mainly with kids and pets. It's great and with the speed light I have, it's easier to get the light correct. Not a Strobflash but it helps keep the cost and weight down for portablility, and really small rooms.

    Works like a charm, but... the cord is as thick and heavy as a 1965 Bell Telephone desk phone handset cord.

    The cord only carries the signal to trigger the flash and ttl data. Some would say it is better to have a thick strong cord than a flimsy one. I think it is better the cord stretch to the advertized 6ft length before ripping the prizm off my camera. It just really seems like overkill to me.

    Another tidbit of design concern is the cord on the flash end exists to the front. I suppose it is better than having it exit to one side or the other. It would undoubtedly be the wrong side 50% of the time. That would be 50% better than exiting the front which is wrong 100% of the time.

          I shoot a lot of candid portraits and this gives me the ability to hand-hold and move about the TTL flash on my Nikon to directly flash from any angle or bounce flash off any surrounding surfaces. I get great control and results.

              This works fine with my D700 and SB-900, and for much less than the Nikon SC-29. Construction seems robust enough - not cheap feeling at all.

                  Great flash accessory permitting off camera flash while maintaining TTL features of the camera. This cord is specific for the Nikon system. Cord is coiled yet this cord length permits greater distance from the camera.

                    I got this flash cord to use with my SB-700 Speedlight to provide off-camera flash for extreme close-up flower photography in my studio. It fits the hot shoes on my Nikon DSLRs perfectly, and also perfectly accommodates the speedlight. I use it mounted to the screw on top of a lightstand, where it fits securely. So far, it has functioned without the slightest problem. All of the cord's components look to be of sturdy construction. And it came at a great price.

                        This product is wonderful for off camera flash! I am currently doing a lot of editorial work and this cord is perfect for on location shoots when you don't have a lot of time with models and setting up equipment. Overall I'm loving my new ttl bello cord.

                            I do a lot of candid photography for my employer, a small university, in settings that are unposed and where I move around a lot. I prefer working with my flash off camera, mostly to bounce the light off nearby surfaces. This cord works perfectly (manual or TTL), is just the right length, and is heavy enough that I suspect it will work for years.

                                  I wanted to get my Nikon dedicated flash off my camera so I could have better control of the flash direction. The cord does exactly what is supposed to.

                                    This item works exactly as advertised. The cord is think and high quaility. TTL signals passed without a problem. The far end includes both a hotshoe type connection and a screw in slot for a light stand with a threaded post. I have used it on a bracket and on a stand. The results are much better than using a flash directly on the camera.

                                    The quality is very good, nothing wrong there. I like it.

                                    However, in my personal opinion it's overpriced. The reason you ask, because 6.5' isn't enough for portraits unless you are shooting from the side only.

                                    If you have more than two flash just get a set of triggers.

                                      Works perfectly. No complaint's really. Run's a little short with the coil, but not bad,

                                        I was so impressed by how heavy it was-excellent quality! I used it for some headshots while on the road- worked flawlessly.

                                          I have this and one of a different length. These work just fine for triggering off camera flash and I have not noticed any real differences with the name brand part with the exception of the price. Came nicely packaged. Does what I need it to, and didn't cost me a fortune. I can;t ask for much more.

                                          If you don't already know the length is when the cord is stretched, not the coiled length. This makes it great for storage, but you can never quite get he full length due to the tension in the coil. Just keep that in mind when selecting the appropriate length of cable.
