I hope to buy an SB-28 soon, to use as (mostly) as an off-camera flash. I'm not really interested in the SU-4, because it's expensive, and I still need to use the flash on my camera to trigger it. Unfortunately, the N80 doesn't have a PC terminal. So, a question;

I have seen the Nikon hot shoe -> pc terminal adapter, its cheap, and w/ a sync cord, seems to be the perfect answer. Does TTL work through the PC terminal? (It sure seems like it should) and if not, is there such thing as a sync cord w/ a male hot shoe on one end, and a female hotshoe on the other?

UPDATE: OK, I found the SC-17 (my hotshoe cord) which seems good, but kind of pricey at $55. I guess the PC adapter, and the sync cord would be about $40.. but hey, thats 3 rolls of provia! So, a simplified question, do you get TTL through a pc terminal adapter?

Thanks!

John
