About Nikon SC-29

Eliminates guesswork

I recently jumped from the world of film to digital when I went from a faithful F5 to the D700. The F5 and an old Ftn still sit on a shelf in my library ready to go whenever I need them and over the years, a few other Nikon F series went as trade-ins for several newer versions. As reluctant as I was to go digital, the D700, SB900 and the SC-29 cord all helped to make the transition fairly seamless and opened new chapters of creativity for me.

The F5 and an old Ftn still sit on a shelf in my library ready to go whenever I need them and over the years, a few other Nikon F series went as trade-ins for several newer versions. As reluctant as I was to go digital, the D700, SB900 and the SC-29 cord all helped to make the transition fairly seamless and opened new chapters of creativity for me. My bag full of Nikon glass all made the transition and a new 400mm zoom also joined the team. The seasonal magazine that I publish has taken on a new look which seems to have pleased the readers. It also helps to have a good local Nikon dealer who has guided me through each step of the way.

Shoe Poorly Made

After 3 months on a bracket, the shoe that now holds the SB-800 flash has become so unstable that the connection is not continuously maintained. I suspect it will totally fail soon.

Short Shelf life

By

from Birmingham, AL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I mean, they work and do what they're supposed to do, but only for about 18 months. I've had to purchase one of these about every year and a half to 2 years over the past 10 years.

A born skeptic chooses to accept

By

from Chicago  -  Photo Enthusiast

The CS-29 was my first purchase of used camera equipment via the internet and it was a pleasant surprise for the skeptic that I am. I only bought this CS-29 because a new one wasn't available and I knew I would return it if not satisfied. Testing all CLS and AF assist light functions determined that the sync cord works properly. The cord still has a tight coil and the connections are solid. It was in excellent condition as advertised save for some very minor dust in some crevices and tiny scratches on the red AF assist window. I will take the money that I saved on this purchase and apply it to the next item on my endless wish list, a flash bracket.

Improved my photos.

By

from Wildomar, CA.  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love this cable. I finally got away from the awful red eye effect from my "on camera flash". The hot spots on people's faces are gone forever!! I have the freedom to bounce the light from almost anywhere (walls, ceilings, and objects).

Haven't used it, yet. But there is no Male Hot shoe connection for the remote end to connect to my stroboframe.

By

from RI

There is no Male Hot shoe connection for the remote end to connect to my stroboframe. I had to take the hot shoe adapter off of the stroboframe. This fact should be in the details and photos. Also not have a PC socket is a bummer. Its not the first time Nikon has forgotten important parts for a camera.

Reliable Cord For Off Camera Flash

By

from Portland, OR  -  Photo Enthusiast

When I use a TTL speedlight off camera...direct or bounce...this cord allows the full TTL function. It is well made.

Worth its weight in gold

By

from Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

When you have to be mobile and can't get the flash off camera on a light stand, use it with a camera bracket to get the flash off camera without having to hold the flash in one hand. It also helps to eliminate red eye when used with a bracket.

Questions about this item:

BOBBY W  DOSE THIS WORK WITH THE SB 910 ?
STEVEN B  I am using the SC-29 extension cord on a SB 900 Nikon flash and find it to be very useful. It is the fastest way to get the flash off camera. I use it often with a flash bracket that can be detached from the base on which my camera is mounted. For quick shots I just point and shoot, but for more lighting control I hold the flash at a off camera position.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KEVIN G  This was a replacement for one that I had broken. This is a great item for usin off camera flash with a flash bracket.
Shopper  does this work with the nikon 600 to the nikon 910 speed flash?
Brian M  Yes, it does work with the Nikon D600 and the Nikon 910. However, remember that the Nikon D600 does have "Built-in flash Commander Mode" which will let you trigger and control Nikon 910's output without a cord as well.
