Nikon SC-29 off-shoe cable

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by JerseyJay, Apr 17, 2005.

  1. I purchased this cable today but I was "disappointed" to see "female-type" connection at the end of the cable which mounts on bracket. When I owned Canon P&S I had 420EX external flash which had the same "slide-in" connection as direct flash/camera. After unscrewing slide-in piece from stroboframe and screwing in SC-29 I ended up having 1/4" gap.

    I'm wondering if I should invest in something like SC-17-Anti-Twist-Plate

    or

    Custom Brackets Flash Mounting Plate F35-N1 for Nikon SC-17, SC-28, SC-29 Off Camera TTL AF Cord

    or just simply get better bracket / stroboframe.

    I have this stroboframe at the moment.

    Why don't you just cut the bolt down, or use a couple of spacer washers?

    You lost me. Doesn't the female end slide into the little part you took off? I'm reading that you took the bracket part off and tried to directly attach your female end to the bracket.
     
  4. Gregory is right. I either have to use space washers or cut the bolt down. I was just puzzled why stroboframe used such long bolt. I would think all those little gadgets are universal.

    Thanks
