Nikon F and F2 Flash Accessories


MC-9 Cord

Used to attach motor drives' release to the SB-6 repeating flash.

SF-1 Eyepiece Pilot Lamp

Nikon Description:
Fits the eyepiece of the Nikon F and Nikkormat cameras. In this way, you can determine speedlight readiness without removing your eye from the viewfinder; you can compose and focus while the unit is charging and be ready to fire when the pilot light comes on. The pilot lamp goes out after firing, indicating that the speedlight has fired.

This accessory consists of an adapter that screws into your eyepiece and two cords coming off the adapter's left side: the top one is connected to your camera's PC socket, and the bottom one has a pronged plug to go into your speedlight. Thus it also handles camera-flash sync, obviating the need for the SC-5/6/7.

SC-4 Ready Light Adapter

Nikon Description:
Permits use of the ready-light built into the viewfinders of F2 Nikon cameras when the flash unit is used off-camera.

This accessory slides around the F/F2 shoe and connects with the ready-light contact built into the left side of F2 prisms. It connects to the three-prong sync socket on Nikon Speedlites and also handles the camera-flash sync (i.e. no need for a PC plug cord).

SC-5 Sync Cord

Nikon Description:
Provides sync coupling of the flash unit to cameras not equipped with a hot-shoe.

The SC-5 is shorter than the SC-6, lacks the coiling, but performs the same function: one end is a PC plug, the other is the standard three-prong plug for flash sync.

SC-6 Sync Cord

Nikon Description:
The coiled 1m extension cord permits off-camera shooting with all types of Nikon cameras.

It seems pretty simple: one end has a two-prong plug that looks vaguely like a US AC socket-plug (but goes into the three slots on the SB-2/3 and -7E/8E) and the other end is a threaded PC plug (finally, the threads on your F2 have some use, hallelujah!).

SC-7 Sync Cord

Nikon Description:
Connects the SB-2 (-7E) to the Nikkormat/Nikomat FTN. 25cm (0.8ft) long.

This is for use with cameras and other objects that have an ISO shoe without flash coupling (i.e. cold shoes); it has the three prongs which mate with the three slots on the bottom of the SB-2/3 and -7E/8E on one end and a standard PC plug on the other.

SU-1 Flash Sensor

Nikon Description:
Mountable on the SB-5 or on the camera's accessory shoe (via the SC-9). Permits selection of three f/numbers in automatic as well as manual and slave operation.

SW-1 Wideangle Adapter

Nikon Description:
Clips easily over the reflector of the SB-2 or SB-3 to increase the angle of flash from the normal 56 deg. horizontal and 40 deg. vertical to 67 deg. horizontal and 48 deg. vertical. It also ensures adequate lighting at the perimeter of the viewfield when the 28mm wideangle lens is used.

SW-2 Wideangle Adapter

Nikon Description:
Clips easily over the reflector of the SB-7E or SB-8E to increase the angle of flash from the normal 56 deg. horizontal and 40 deg. vertical to 67 deg. horizontal and 48 deg. vertical. It also ensures adequate lighting at the perimeter of the viewfield when the 28mm wideangle lens is used.

SC-9 Sensor Extension Cord

Nikon Description:
Enables automatic flash operation with the SB-5 HTTP/1.1 504 Error at firewall: Timeout waiting for data Error at firewall: Timeout waiting for data
