I just ran a test with my new SB-910 and it worked.

The following was a simple test to determine if there are any issues with my D800E set in CLS Commander Mode to trigger an SB-910 in Remote Mode ....

SB-910 Setup

. Turned flash on as REMOTE

. Set Group to 'A'

. Set Channel to '1'

Positioned the flash about 8 feet away on my right so the light sensor window for wireless remote flash was visible to me and the D800E.

D800E

. Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Built-in flash (mode) set as '--'

. Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Group A (mode) set as TTL

. Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Group B (mode) set as TTL

. Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Channel set as 1

. Set the camera to Manual Mode

. Popped the on-camera flash.

. Composed, focused, metered the exposure.

. Positioned the D800E off my face so I could view the flash triggering.

. Took the shot.

Results .....

I viewed the SB-910 & D800E both flash.

I'm assuming this simple test is adequate and I can confirm that using my SB-910 as a wireless remote slave functions properly.

If anyone knows of some other scenario I should setup and test please let me know.
