question

Can I use it with Nikon D5300?
Asked by: Javier M.
The Nikon D 5300 has a hot shoe for an external flash mounted above the camera. The SC-29 is designed to enable you to use an external flash like the SB-700 or SB 910 off the camera for additional lighting control. There should be no reason why this wouldn't work with the D 5300.

question

How do I attach this cord to a Stroboframe Quick Flip 350 bracket? If the AF Illuminator end is attached to the camera hot shoe, how do I attach the other end, with a Nikon SB-700 flash on it, to the flash bracket itself? Or is this not possible with such a bracket?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can connect via the 1/4-20 screw socket (screw included with Stroboframe bracket), or you can attach a shoe piece like this one:Manfrotto 262 Nikon Flash AdapterB&H # MA262 Mfr # 262This will let you use the included cold shoe of the bracket, and will reduce wear and tear on the actual flash cord.

question

I have a D3s and have been shooting a lot lately with natural light INSIDE my studio. My studio has some large windows, but if it is cloudy my D3s will sometimes have trouble with autofocusing. I thought something was wrong with my camera and took it in for repairs, but we have concluded that I may sometimes need AF Assist help if I want to shoot natural light indoors and it is cloudy outdoors. The repair guy recommended I get the Nikon SC-29 TTL Off-Camera Shoe Cord with AF Assist. He said I only would need to put the hotshoe part on my camera and wouldn't even need to connect the flash for the AF Assist LED to work. Turns out I already had this cord for my SB 900 and when I try to connect it without the flash as the repair guy suggested, nothing happens. If I connect the flash it works. I know on my SB-900 that I can connect the flash and then change the settings to AF-ILL and it will turn the flash off, but I don't want to mess with the flash at all....too bulky for what I am doing. There is a switch on SC-29 on the part that attaches to the flash with the options ON, OFF, and AF-ILL. I thought maybe I needed to switch that to AF-ILL for it to work without the flash, but the switch will only go from ON to OFF and the knob will not turn to the AF-ILL setting. Can anyone help with this??? Can I use this without attaching the flash and still get the benefits of the AF-Assist that I need in low light?
Asked by: Brenda R.
The Nikon sc-29 ttl cord will not work without a flash attached. The description on the module is AF-ILL with the settings of ON and OFF, AF-ILL is not a third setting. I would have to recommend an after market focus assistant such as Dot Line DL-DV60A Video & DSLR LED Light B&H # DODLDV60AQ ?MFR # DL-DV60A for $39.99 or something similar. Another tip would be to change the focus to a single point focus, focus on another object at the same distance as the subject, hold the shutter button half way to lock the focus, then recompose for the subject and shoot.

question

Can the SC29 TTl sync cord be used with the newer Nikon D810?
Asked by: John G.
Yes, it works well with the D810 & D850 - use it for weddings, dinners and low lit areas indoors with the SB900/910 flash units.
