Product Highlights
  • Use Your On-Shoe Flash Off-Camera
  • Allows Full TTL Functioning
  • Use with Two Flashes in Manual Mode
  • Create Unusual Lighting Effects

With the Vello Duo TTL Off-Camera Flash Cord you can set up a single flash for off-camera lighting and retain your entire camera's TTL (through the lens) flash functions. Multiple contact pins support TTL-compatible flashes used with Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Pentax and some Samsung digital cameras. The off-camera hot shoe can mount to accessory shoes or 1/4"-20 threaded studs on tripods, booms, or light stands.

In Manual mode (non-TTL function) you can use two flashes together, both synchronized with your shutter release to create amazing lighting effects and two-light setups. Each terminal has a hot shoe so you can still keep one flash on the camera while setting up the other flash somewhere else.

Note! Flash units must be compatible with each other (if using two) and with the camera for synchronization to take place. TTL functions work only in single flash setups.

Compatibility
The Duo TTL Cord is compatible with the following: Canon E-TTL, E-TTL II hot shoe cameras, Nikon i-TTL hot shoe cameras (and Fujifilm S-Series and other cameras that used the Nikon system), Pentax P-TTL hot shoe cameras, and Samsung SLR (excluding NX series) cameras.

This cord works with flash units from the following manufacturers with cameras listed above: Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Fujifilm, Nissin, Sunpak, Sigma, Metz, and Samsung (non-SEF series).

    I use this to trigger a Canon 580EXII mounted inside a Wescott Apollo softbox for portraits. I like to use the flash on manual control and this setup allows you to adjust the light output from the back of a 7D vs. going inside the softbox and adjusting the flash. The 580 can still work as a master, triggering fill and hair lights with built in wireless preflash. You can control output on A, B and C groups independently from the camera in manual mode.

    Plastic shoe mount build quality seems reasonable compared to my shorter Canon off camera ETTL cord. The only reason for 4 star rating is you have to twist/untwist the entire length in order to stretch it out or coil it back up which is kind of a hassle.

    When this works properly it is great. When it doesn't it's no better than a cheap RF trigger. I've been having trouble getting this cord to ETTL sync with my 7D. When it doesn't sync it just fires the flash with no control from the camera. When it does sync you get full control over exposure settings, including HSS. If it worked reliably I'd give 5 stars.

          I got it for using the flash on ttl off the camera, so I have not tried it in dual mode yet.
          The cable and the mounts seem well built and sturdy. The cable is thick and looks to be able to take ruogh use for a long time.

                Does what it says, and once you establish a connection it works well. However, I've used it on both a Canon Rebel t1i and Canon 6D and making the connection to the camera's hot shoe is extremely finicky. You have to slide it back and forth a bit while tightened down (but not all the way) to get it to click into place. If you slide it in the hot shoe all the way, it appears to be pushed too far forward and the camera doesn't see the flash.

                It takes me a few minutes every time I connect it to get it just right. Once connected and tightened down it worked flawlessly. I used it continuously during a 5 hour shoot, constantly taking the camera on and off the tripod and moving around the room and it never failed.

                I'd give it more stars if the connection was easier.

                  After watching B&H's YouTube channel video by Syl Arena, I was interested in shooting off-camera with my Canon 430 EX II. I decided to pick up this cord and try off-camera shooting for the first time. The cord worked perfectly and I was able to control my flash manual settings via my Canon T5i's menu without issue. Very happy with this purchase.

                    This cord is perfect if you are looking for an inexpensive way to fire your OCF. I am mostly a natural light photog but during the winter or crummy light days this works perfect for indoor newborn and family sessions.

                      I have the wireless option as well and it costs so much more than the cord and occasionally misfires / out of sync. I thought I would purchase the long cord and give it a try for my new camera. The cord is durable and i prefer the longer length (6' up for camera, another 6' up for flash gives about 21' to position the flash). I got the flat cable to avoid the bungee effect of the short, spiral cords. Very happy with the purchase. Came quickly in the mail.

                      Downside it takes up more space and much heavier than the wireless option. For travel or heavy foot traffic I use wireless.

                        Great idea, I bought the duo so that I could get my canon 70d to talk to my speedlight. Well they talked but not well enough to use the Ettl screens. The camera said there was an accessory in the hotshoe and did nothing else. I have since ordered a flash cable extender and will be doing surgery on it to create the same effect.

                          This cord will work great for dedicated flash units. It doesn't say this in description. The cord will NOT work with aftermarket flash units like Sunpack, youngnuo.
                          Won't trigger them at all manual or anything. When I attached my 430ex it worked flawless. Good cord just make sure you have the required flashes.

                          I bought this cord to do portraits in my apt which is very small - I was a little annoyed that there was no option between the 6foot chord and the 33 foot, which is REALLY long.
                          It works relatively well.

                                    I bought this cord a while back to experiment with off-camera flash. It would work fine but only after considerable fiddling with the flash to the hot-shoe connection and was just too much bother. I gave a review to that effect and wrote off the $[$] I had spent on it.Upon receiving my review, B&H emailed me saying that they had contacted the manufacturer who in turn suggested that I might have received a defective copy and that they would replace it. When I then wrote back that the shipping cost would negate most of the value of that transaction, esp. since I had already found an alternative, B&H went one step further and refunded my original purchase price.It is absolutely refreshing to experience that level of customer service in this day and age. So to both Vello and B&H, I say BRAVO! I would not hesitate to buy from either in the future.

                                      B&H came through again with customer feedback suggesting this straight cord over a coiled one. Worked flawlessly on my Canon and Nikon gear in full ETTL/iTTL (make sure you push it all the way on to the hot shoe). It is lighter, easier to manage, and mush longer than the coiled cords (does not pull your tripod over). In the four months since purchase, I used this cord to relocate my 580EX on a tripod during my kids' indoor hockey and basketball, for family and group photos outdoors to eliminate the hard shadows, and to move my light source right up against a single subject (in a shadow) to balance the ambient light -- all with amazing results. I was surprised how often I used the full length of the cord to either prevent tripping or increase freedom of movement.Recommend a second tripod, Velcro cord wraps (as you use on computer cables), and a carabineer to hang any excess cordage under the tripod.

                                      Comments about Vello Universal Duo TTL Off-Camera Flash Cord (33'):

                                      When I got the cable I had a problem controlling the speedlite from the camera body. Anyway, later on it worked nicely. Since then it had been working on and off.
                                      However, if you plan to work in manual, you still can trigger the speedlite with the cable even if you can't access the menu from the camera body, and the wireless function works as well to trigger other speedlites. It just would be cumbersome to do it manually with long distances away from the camera or when the speedlite is raised high.

                                      Even though B&H did indeed send me a return form by email to send the item back, but unfortunately it doesn't work for international destinations like in my case. Yet, it is a valuable tool after all. Something better than nothing.

                                              Well constructed. Works great for positioning a flash away from the camera, and the ability to use two flashes at the same time. Great for portrait use.
