Key Features

Approx. 9-ft. coiled cord with built-in AF-Assist Illuminator for placement of the SB-910, SB-900, or SB-700 off camera. The SC-28/SC-29 makes off-camera TTL flash control easy and assured. With the Nikon D-SLRs, the SC-29 also works as an external AF-assist illuminator.
The SC-29 is approx. 9-ft in length and coiled; and features a built-in AF-Assist Illuminator.


The SC-29 provides full TTL control for Nikon Speedlights when used off camera with Nikon D-SLRs that utilize a TTL hot shoe.

One end slips into the D-SLR's hot shoe and the Speedlight attaches to the other end, when the Speedlight is used off-camera, on a bracket.

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. 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. August 9, 2010
Haven't used it, yet. But there is no Male Hot shoe connection for the remote end to connect to my stroboframe. 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. September 17, 2013

How to control flash unit attached to SC-29 cord from camera

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I set up SB-910 as a master flash on SC-29 cord on a tripod and attached the cord to D300s. I could not figure out how to control the flash (switch from manual to TTL etc) from the camera. I kept standing up and changing the settings on my flash unit. Is it possible to control the flash unit from camera?
Thanx

Answer: 
I have tried "ON" instead of MASTER and the same happens. Seems Nikon didn't put much thought into this feature

Answer: 
The problem is, you have the flash set to master. It should be set to ON (not master)

Answer: 
For some reason it does not work for me. I set up SB910 as master (dial the knob on the unit to master position), attach it to camera via cord, try to use commander mode on camera to control the flash but the flash unit does not respond. Only when I use the flash buttons does the unit change the output.

Answer: 
You control as you would if the flash is on camera using the cameras in built commander. It is just an extension cable so all functions can be controlled via commander.

Answer: 
SC-29 is easier to use than SC-28 because the 'way of cord' is better.

Answer: 
then this is useless device then for around a hundred bucks. I need this on my d7000 (or future d600 if they fix the dust issues, which my d7000 had too) as a AF assist light and to trigger my radio popper in dark situation. I might use it for my sb700 ot sb600, but I want af assist with a radio trigger. I know a guy with an "Olympus that doe sit with their stuff.

Answer: 
With the switch in the OFF position, the AF Illumination occurs at the camera (if necessary), with the switch ON, AF illumination occurs at the switch end of the SC-29. Set the AF area bracket in the viewfinder to the center, and test in a low light situation.

Is there an extension cord for the SB-29? I recently purchased an SU-800 as part of the CLS to trigger my SB-900 and SB-600s, but at times may need a little more reach so that all of the units can "see" the signal.
