How can I connect an SB800 mounted on Stroboframe to a Nikon body?

    I have the Nikon SC-28, but it's not possible to put it on the
    stroboframe. What kind of cord/connection do I need so that I can
    retain TTL functionality without making use of the hotshoe on the
    SB800?

    Thanks in advance.

    The SC-17

    The strobo frame should have come with a plate and screw to mount a Nikon
    speedlight via a cord like hte SC-17, which has a tripod mount opening on
    it.

    It does make use of the camera's hotfoot, though...not sure why that would
    be a problem.

    I mount mt SB800 (and 28) on my Stroboframe brackets. The SC17 cable
    does the trick. You need to hook the camera end to the hotshoe, as
    that is the only place
    he TTL contacts are present.

    I also have the sc-17 which I was told would not work, but does just
    fine with both the SB600 or SB800 and fastens to the stroboframe
    bracket easily.
