The secret to using wireless CLS is to learn to think like the camera. It works remarkably well!

TTL-BL is designed only for fill flash in bright ambient conditions. It doesn't work reliably in low ambient conditions. Also, when using TTL-BL it is essential that the light meter in the camera be zeroed. Most of the time camera P mode works best with TTL-BL. TTL-BL adds just the right amount of fill to most outdoor shots.
