#4. "RE: How to set SB-800 to Manual and Remote" In response to In response to 2
I guess what I don't understand is, if I want to set the output manually, what fires the light if it can't be triggered from the camera i.e., Remotely? If I set it for remote, then I can't set the output manually except via Commander.
I know via Commander lights can be adjusted, but what is the manual setting for on the SB-800? My flawed understanding tells me I can set the output on the SB-800, but I have to press the red button to make it fire since I can't set it to fire remotely...which is not the way it works, I'm sure. What good would that do except test the light?
