#33. "RE: Slave with SB800 -- Newbie here -- Moderators plz have a look" In response to In response to 32
Live Oak, US
I remembered that my old SB-50DX has a IR filter that you clip onto the front to cover the flash in the commander mode. I never used it before. I took this filter and attached it to my SB800 and mounted it on the camera in the commander mode set to the Master RPT mode. The IR filter suppressed the pre-flash and allowed my Achiver 285 with a slave photo cell adapter and my Light Bulb slave to fire perfectly as well as the SB-50DX in slave mode.
