Admission- I am intimidated at the thought of flash photography. Adventure for me is mounting my SB-700 on the hot shoe and setting the camera on auto for snapshots of the back of grandkids heads at Christmas. I would like to venture out and get a Stroboframe flash bracket and start learning flash photography (have and have read Mike Hagen's book on CLS). This isn't the right forum for many of my questions but to start with a simple hardware question. With the D600 and SB-700 on a Stroboframe what cord is required? Mike's book shows and SC-17 or SC-28 but not sure those are right (his book doesn't cover the D600). What cords/modules will I need. Also, does the Stroboframe (Pro-Digital) B & H #STFFQ come with all that is needed to mount to the camera base? Further, if there is a flash bracket that is better for the D600 please recommend. Thanks in advance for help and advice, Jim B
So do I, but be sure to read the fine print about needing an L-plate on your camera. If you aren't in the habit of keeping an L-plate on the camera, attaching the WPF-QR becomes a cumbersome 2-step process involving a hex-key wrench. But if you do keep an L-plate on your camera, as I do, the WPF-QR (and its predecessor, the WPF-1) is very convenient.
All modern Nikon bodies take the same off-camera flash cords. The SC-28 is the Nikon cord you would want. Unfortunately, it's really too long for use with a flash bracket, in my opinion. Not that it won't work, just that there is a lot of excess cord to manage, even though it's coiled.

I would seriously suggest reading the following to learn more about CLS.
