"Rear curtain sync with SB-26."



I see this flash has the normal/rear switch. Can rear sync be achieved with any camera body or just certain models?

So many cameras, so little time....

On page 105 of the SB-26 manual it lists compatibility with the older Nikon SLR models. All the Nikon DSLRs since the D1 appear to have rear sync capabilities, while some of the point and shoot cameras such as the older CoolPix CP5000 do not.

Rear curtain sync (or slow sync), red eye reduction, front curtain synch capabilities are considered must-have features on the better digital cameras to be competitive in today's market.

If you have a specific SB-26 compatibility question I'm sure someone on the forum can provide an answer.

I'm wondering if it will do rear sync with manual focus bodies. I read the manual, but sometimes an item will do something that's not mentioned in the manual. Maybe the Magic Lantern Guide will specify?

Hi Bill,
Please list the specific equipment you're interested in. Using a term like "manual focus bodies" is too general.

I'm sure you can get more detailed and useful answers.

Thanks,

Larry

Based on the potential number of cameras you are curious about it would be best if you did your own research from here forward. I tried to help by pointing out the chart and covering the "D" series of cameras. Here are a couple of additions to the list you provided.

FM2 and FM3a - no
F100 - yes

Regarding the "or plan to have in the future", find the manual of the camera you are thinking about getting online, look up the flash modes and see if rear curtain synch is listed. If not, you're probably out of luck. Some manufacturers also use the term "slow synch".
