Hello and thanks for your response!

What I'm getting at with this question is how will the D800 behave if it is set to Commander Mode, but with an SB-800 attached? For example, let's say that I leave my D800 in Commander mode, and then the next day, forgetting that it is still in Commander Mode, I mount an SB-800 on the D800, set the SB-800 for TTL, and shoot. Will the D800 fire the SB-800 as a TTL flash, or will it treat the SB-800 as a master flash, just as it would the pop-up flash? Or will it do neither and simply not fire the SB-800 at all?

In other words, if I mount a flash on the hot shoe, and place that flash in TTL or TTL-BL mode, do I need to make sure that the D800 is set for TTL in the menu? Or is it smart enough to use TTL whenever a the pop-up flash is folded down and another flash is in the hot shoe?

I'm stating this clearly...

Chris
