Product Highlights
  • For Nikon Speedlights with TTL Hot Shoe
  • Maintains Full TTL Connection
  • 1.5' (0.5 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 1.5' (0.5 m), which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Shooters looking to mount the flash to a larger bracket or to a stand with an umbrella would probably need a longer version of this cable.

Other available lengths are:

  • 3' (1 m) - allows for handheld shooting at arm's length, and provides extra length for flash brackets with longer positioning arms
  • 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.
    1.5' (0.5 m) Coiled Cord
    The 1.5' length accommodates off-camera hand-held technique.
Cord Length 1.5' (0.5 m) extended

      This is a nice product for an off camera brack/arm where the arm is attached to your camera.

      I have a flash bracket/arm system that would swing my flat from the top landscape orientation of my camera to the right side when I would rotate my camera to a portrait position keeping the flash high and above the camera for better light bounce from a ceiling or natural projection.

      I ordered 2 flash cords from B&H. Another brand that when coiled was 3' long and extended 9'.

      When I a attached it the cable was way too long for my needs and it became cumbersome to keep on because it hangs low and with the weight of the cord it would stretch a little longer.

      Witht the Vello at 1.5' it was the perfect length coiled or extended. It would not hang lower than the lens if it would hang at all.

      Everything feels well made as far as materials.

      One con I have so far about the product might be just my particular unit is when the flash is attached, the receiving hot shoe could be a little tighter to more securely hold the flash unit.

      Otherwise everything is great. I get all iTTL information from the camera to the lens and back. I've not had one misfire. If necessary I would buy another one.

      I bought this product to replace Nikon's TTL Cord for my bracket.

      I really like the fact that on the "flash" end, there are two PC Sockets. For me it means that I can use my other manual flashes w/o PC socket on this cord and attach a radio to it.

      However, just like Nikon's TTL cords, there are minimal durability to them.

            Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Nikon SLR - 1.5' (0.5 m):

            I owned a similar cord made by Canon in the days that I shot Canon, so I wasn't looking forward to paying what I thought was an unreasonably high price for a new TTL sync cord when I switched to Nikon. I found this one for less than what I sold my used Canon cord for on Craig's list. I haven't used it extensively yet, but it not only works, it seems to be made to the same standard that I am used to with the Canon cord I owned.

              I use this flash cord to attach my Nikon SB-600 flash to my D610 using a CB Mini-RC flash bracket. It is the perfect length for my connection - not too long or too short.

                    The flash cord works great with my camera and flash combination I don't loose any of the cameras fuctions. This cord allows me to mount my flash on a flash bracket to keep the flash off the cameras hot shoe.

                      Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Nikon SLR - 1.5' (0.5 m):

                      I cannot adequately represent how excited I am over this product! For many years (okay decades), I used the name brand cords, which were 5' long and I paid someone to shorten. The reason? I use a small bracket which keeps the flash fairly close to the lens and flips to do vertical photos. I used the shortened cords so that there was no excess to get tangled up in my bracket. When I saw that Vello offered this short cord, I was ecstatic! In the short time that I've owned it (actually 2 of them), they have worked perfectly. The build is solid. The module that the flash connects to screws tightly on to my bracket, and the end that attaches to my hot shoe locks on and is solid. I haven't noticed any problem that some have mentioned about that part fitting too tightly or loosely. The locking mechanism works fine. The 1.5' is the extended length, which I will never use. I wondered if the cord was truly short enough as it has 20 coils (loops) in its length. When I had cords shortened, I had them made 10 loops long. But 20 on the Vello about equals 10 on my old cords, so it is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing on this cord.

                      I just received my flash cord and so far out its working great. Before I was using a wireless tigger but it was not stable. I would recommend this product, works on Nikons.

                                Used to connect D3100 Nikons to a Vivitar 285 flashhead. Like the option of upgrading to TTL strobe, but, currently prefer to shoot in the manual mode. Very durable constuction and a great price. Look forwrd to developing a need for other products from this company based on quality and price

                                  Comments about Vello TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Nikon SLR - 1.5' (0.5 m):

                                  Was surprised at how well this really worked with my flash bracket. Had no issues with it at all. Definately worth the price. Looking forward to using it at my next wedding event.

                                    great little cord hooks my bracket up to my camera without bulky overhang.

                                                      So much less expensive than similar items from camera manufacturers yet also of high quality construction. The lock fitting, hot shoe, and cable strain relief are all quite durable, and the cord and plastic housings don't look at all cheesy.

                                                      Keep in mind, the length measurement corresponds to fully stretched. I found the 1.5' length ideal for a flash bracket, but you'd certainly want something longer for arm's length shooting.
