    Hey guys theres been alot of these late so im sorry but im looking for some advice

    say i have a Nikon D50 and 2 SB-24/25/26/27/28's

    You're not making any sense.

    If I'm interpretting gibberish correctly, a pc cable should work.

    A $10 optical trigger or the under $40 Gadget Infinity wireless triggers is all that you need. You will lose TTL or iTTL, obviously... unless you invest in the way more expensive radio poppers.

    The question you SHOULD be asking is... if I can get the flash off camera, why would I ever consider putting it back there?

    The answer to your question is yes... IF your flash has a PC sync OUT cable.
