This off-camera flash shoe cord was purchased primarily to allow TTL flash usage at an umbrella, but this cord also permits hand-held flash use to improve single-flash lighting. Constuction is typical Nikon excellent, and their re-design of the cord attachment position at the shoe connector improves an already great design.
The flash connector includes a standard tripod attachment hole and two Nikon TTL cord connectors to add additional wired flash units.

Does what it is meant to: allows you to take a small on-camera flash off-camera. The coils are a bit tight and it is hard to get a whole lot of range out of it, but it just barely works for side-lighting portraits. It was quite a stretch (literally) to use with an 85mm lens, and I couldn't quite get as much distance as I wanted... perhaps a short focal length would have made the situation a tad more workable. You can also use the cord on-camera, stacking the two endpoints (with velco and some hairbands) to allow some side-to-side movement on-camera with an sb-400, which normally can only be pointed straight-ahead.

"Known by the state of California to contain lead", which is a huge put-off for me.

Good Nikon Branded Remote for Off-Camera Flash

By F

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Nikon SC-28 TTL Coiled Remote Cord (9'):

This remote cord is a simple accessory that I use with my off camera mount. It is the simpler version without the IR focusing assist. My only issue is that repeated use, when mounted on my camera, causes the flash mounting socket to weaken and fail. Never-the-less, it works well and is the best solution available.

Comments about Nikon SC-28 TTL Coiled Remote Cord (9'):

My first Nikon cord like this lasted 2X as long as I had expected. Years ago I tried the "other" brand for 1/2 the price but I had to break it to get to let go of my Nikon body. Stick with the Nikon brand accessories.

    Comments about Nikon SC-28 TTL Coiled Remote Cord (9'):

    I use this for macro photography, it allows me to better control my lighting setup off camera. A great and simple to setup solution for my macro work and other close-up shots where I want my speed light at an angle to the subject. I highly recommend this for that type of work.

        This cable stays attached to my speed light and m D7100. Although it gets tight, it does stretch a long way.

          This is an excellent remote cord for Nikon users. It allows you to position the flash attachment to create the type of lighting you want. The 9' length permits the use of an assistant so you can have both hands for camera use. I use it with a Nikon D7100 DSLR and a Nikon SD600 and get outstanding results.
