    You will need one of THESE for the camera.
    Then a cord like THIS
    Then, if the flash has a PC socket, you can plug the cord into it. If not, you will need one of THESE

    This will let you fire the flash, off camera. It will be manual control only though. If you want the automatic flash metering, as if the flash was on the camera, you will need something like THIS

    Another option for firing the flash would be wireless. You could use something like THIS
    It will also mean manual flash control, but it's maybe easier than using cords and adapters.
