Converting SD-8 battery pack to SD-8a
Nov 1, 2007

I have an old Nikon SD-8 battery pack that I would like to use with my newer SB-800 flash. The plugs of the two devices are not compatible, but I have read online in a number of places that Nikon service can change the cord on the SD-8 so that it becomes an SD-8a.

I asked Nikon Canada service to do this, but the technician had never heard of changing the cord and insisted it could not be done. He wanted to modify my SB-800 so that it could use the SD-8. But i want to upgrade the SD-8, not downgrade the SB-800.

Has anyone here changed the SD-8 to an SD-8a? What advice do you have.

Many thanks.

Bill
