The only difference between the two cords is the SC-29 has the focus assist light build into the end that connects to the camera hot shoe.

Yes, you can use the SB-700 on the D90. The main difference between the SC-29 is that has a AF-Assist Illuminator and the SC-28 is an extension of the hot shoe with connectors for the SC-27, SC-19 and 3 pins connectors cables.

Your local friendly Nikon dealer should have a 1/4-20 (tripod screw) to accessory shoe adapter, probably in with the lighting bits and pieces.

The terminal for the Remote cord will slips in the hot shoe of the camera and the other end works as a hot shoe for the speedlight. There's no tripod socket or screw.

Question

What is the function of the other 3-pin connectors from both sides of SC-28.

I have tried to connect another camera (SB800) with SC-27 cable and was hoping for two flashes working in TTL mode, but it does not work in TTL, just in FULL flash power. Any advice?

Nikon SC-28 have 3-pin connectors, but Digital Camera not compatible with it. You need to use it in manual mode only.

Question

replacement foot?

The "foot" from the flash side of my SC-28 has gone missing. Is it possible to get a replacement without buying a whole new cable? Is there a part number?

Question

Will this cord work with a Nissin Di866?

Also wondering, is a screw/adapter required to attach the flash and cord to a stroboframe, or will the cord hold flash in place?

Thanks!

It should work as long as your flash is Nikon compatible. As for the screw if the frame has a screw on it, which most do, then it will fit with no other attachments required.

Question

SC-17 vs SC-28

Are there any electrical or functional differences between the two? I still have a couple of the older SC-17 cords I'd like to keep using.

Both do the same job, sc-28 has a lever lock instead of a wheel, cord comes out the front on the sc-17 and out the side on the sc-28 and the cord is longer on the sc28. They are functionally the same.
