I have a long history of problems with off-camera flash cords on Nikon, Lumix and Canon cameras. That includes expensive cords from the camera manufacturers themselves. Hence, I was pleased to see that this inexpensive cord (for Canon) works reliably. I haven't used it extensively yet but it hasn't failed yet. I'll probably get the Nikon version as well.
The Flashpoint TTL Off Camera Flash Cord for Nikon provides the easiest solutionfor creative photographers who want to add dimension, drama and modeling to their ordinary flat lighting usually obtained from hotshoe mounted Nikon Speedlites. By placing the flash off the camera hot shoe and onto a bracket, cage or stand, a photographer can break free of the static style forced by the nature of on axis lighting. This cable works as a full-function communication cord, relaying data between the camera and dedicated flash. The cable features an integrated AF assist lamp on the camera end, insuring that you have the use of your AF assist beam above your lens regardless of the position of the tethered flash.
The TTL cable flip locks firmly onto the camera hotshoe securely establishing contact to all the data points, which are transmitted via the durable 3 foot coiled cable. The end acts as an extended foot for the speedlight, and attaches to any stand, tripod, umbrella bracket, or other device with a standard 1/4"-20 screw or flash shoe mount. The extra length of the cable gives great flexibilitywhen used on a bracket with a rotating or flip arm.
