"SB600 Tripod Mount"



Dear Nikonians,

I just want to know which accessories do i need in order to mount my SB600 onto a
tripod, so I don't need an assistant to hold up the flash.

I've been diging around online.. but can't find the right accessories.

Thank u all in advance,

Yinger

It should have come with the AS-19 stand which will mount on a tripod

Yes, both the SB-600 and SB-800 come with the AS-19 stand which has a plastic hotshoe and a tripod socket. This, of course, assumes you are going to be using it as a wireless remote flash with some other flash (SB-800, D70 builtin flash, etc.) setup as the iTTL master.

Another option would be to get a SC-17, SC-28, or SC-29 flash sync cord. The hotshoe on these cords has a tripod socket on the bottom, and you maintain full iTTL functionality while having the flash off camera.

An AS-10 also has a tripod 1/4"-20 socket but without the chord. This will work great in a wireless CLS mode.

If you want a TTL chord: SC-17, SC-28, or SC-29 will work. (Yes, they will all work with I-TTL.)

Thank you all for your prompt and helpful reply! I am going to give that a shot on my next photo shoot. Now I have an extra person around rather then holding the flash up high for me.. thanks folks!

You might want to also have a look at this if you are firing your flash wirelessly. An indispensible item.

I just picked up a couple of these "Justin" clamps (B/M 175F clamps)...very versatile.

JOBY is also coming out with a variant of their gorillapod that will have a flash shoe adapter on top. When it comes out, it might be a useful flash holding accessory as well. You can find a page on the Gorillapod here: http://www.joby.com/products.html
