You should be able to just use a standard PC cable. I use my Nikon SB800 flash with my TLR via a PC cord. I often set the flash to Auto and enter the aperture value into the flash. The flash then delivers the right amount of exposure almost every time. You can, of course, also work in full manual mode. You can even use a remote trigger, such as a Pocket Wizard, and fire your flash wirelessly, which is what I often do.
