Hi

This is the setup:

SB-910 as master. The mode for the master is set to ---.

Sb-600 as slave. Set (Channel 1, Group A) as TTL.

The commander should not contribute to the exposure. It does appear to fire. I was told by Nikon that this was just the pre-flash for communicating with the remote and would not effect the exposure. But this is not the case. I have run some tests and it does effect the exposure.

I have exactly the same problem with a different set up. This one is using the D7000 as commander and the Sb-600 as remote. Again; the D7000 is set to mode ---. Again despite this it contributes to the exposure.

Is Nikon lying or have I done something wrong?

With thanks

--Justin Wyllie
