Can I use the Nikon SC-28 cord on my D5000 with my SB-600 to get move the flash off camera?

Hi Mark,

of course you can use the SC-28 with your D5000

But see also the note in your manual page 200.

So if I understand correctly I need to use spot metering to get my exposure correct.

Hi Mark,

If you will be using the SC-28 to mount the Speedlight on a flash bracket attached to the camera all metering modes should still work fine.
If you will be using the speedlight on a stand, spot metering will provide better results.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Yes. All the contacts of the camera's hotshoe are moved to the one on the end of the SC-28.
