#23. "RE: External Flash with D800's Double Dash Mode" In response to In response to 21 Sun 27-Jan-13 09:22 AM by Thatguy Steve
Yet another disappointment.
I'll be heading up to my local camera shop soon for an SB-910.
After reading this thread though I'm concerned I too will have this issue.
I just purchased "The Nikon Creative Lighting System" book and I was rather excited about picking up a new flash and having a lot of fun.
Things like this frustrate me (and I'm sure all of us D800/D800E owners).
I guess I should just shrug this off as "one of those things that happen" and cross my fingers and hope for the best.
Hell, I'm still worried I have the left focus issue.
I would request though that some of the more experienced flash & CLS operators post a short step by step detailed testing scenario for us flash/CLS newbies.
This way we can run a working test which will allow us to determine if we have this issue.
This would help someone like me quite a lot. Being a flash novice I wouldn't be sure I set things up incorrectly and that was the real reason behind any failed test. So a testing road map would be ideal.
UPDATE: I picked up a new SB-910 late yesterday. I will try and test it later today after I am off work.
