Something similar to this one.

I have a copy of it, from the same seller. It's not the most durable cord in the world, but I know it lasts at least 2 years. That's how long I've been using it.

Just make sure your flash's voltage is not too high for the camera. An off-camera cable won't prevent damage without something like a Wein SafeSync being attached between the flash and hotshoe.

Otherwise, use a wireless trigger (the cheaper option).
