I see many posts about the complexity of setting the SB-800 remote :
My question is the following: I have used a simple cord to connect my D200 to the SB-800 and it works well :I do not have to fiddle with the flash settings, with the menu on the D200 , there is no problem with the D200 pre-flash firing:
So if someone wants only to use the SB-800 off the camera but still at arm length , is it not the easiest solution and what do I miss doing that?
Off course if you want to use a set of flashes , you will need to use the cls.
Thanks for any help.
