Hi Willard,

>remote.

SU-4 mode makes the SB-700 a simple optical slave.
As soon as it detects a flash it will fire.
With the D7000 built in Speedlight set in TTL mode or Commander mode, the pre-flash sequence will trigger the SB-700 before the shutter opens.
To have the SB-700 sync in SU-4 mode you must set the built-in Speedlight to Manual flash mode. It will then sync at all shutter speeds up to 1/250th sec.

If you want to take advantage of i-TTL flash control, Go into the camera menu Custom Setting (pencil icon)
e3 Flash Cntrl for Built-in Flash
Set it to Commander Mode
Verify that Goup A is set to TTL
then select a channel
then press OK.
Set the SB-700 to Remote mode.
Group A and the same channel you selected in the camera menu.
Your should be ready to go.

Best Regards,
Marty
