Hi
I thought I would just experiment with using my SB-700 off camera and it appears I may have a fault.
I mounted a flash meter on a stand to measure light. The SB-700 has been set to Remote, Group A, Channel 1 with the sensor pointing at the camera.
The camera has been set to Commander Mode, Built In Flash - -, Group A Manual, Comp 1/1. Camera in Manual Mode, 125th @ f4 with pop-up flash deployed.
Flash to meter distance 1.5 metres.
The pre-flash from the camera fires and I get a reading of 125th @ f0.8 ?
I try varying the Comp output on the commander but the output will not change. I shift the flash to manual mode and fire the test button and I get 125th @ f14.2. Manually changing the flash output works perfectly.
Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers
Rich
