"Using Flash with D3200"



I want to set up an Off camera flash but am not sure between Yougnuo RF602 or Cowboy Studio.My flash unit is Nikon SB400. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

Hi Ron,

I don't think either system will work.
The SB-400 was designed to be used On Camera ( attached to the cameras hotshoe) and Can only be set in manual flash mode through the cameras menu.

Both the Cowboy NPT-04 wireless remote trigger system and the Yongnuo RF-602 wireless remote system only support Manual flash mode. Therefore you will need an SB-600, SB-700, or other model Speedlight that has Manual flash mode in order to use either system.

You can use an SC-28 or SC-29 TTL extension cord to get your SB-400 Off Camera. This way you can use either Manual flash control or take advantage of i-TTL flash control.

Another option is to get a Pocket Wizard Mini-TT1 and Flex-TT5 (approx. $430.00 US) .
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thank you for your reply.What is the difference between SC-28 and SC-29?
They seem to be the same length. Thank you.

Hi Ron,

The SC-29 has an Infrared AF Assist light built into the SC-29 cord that sits on top of the camera.
The SC-28 does not.

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks Marty, fortunately I have just been given a second hand SB-600 so now to choose between Yougnuo and Cowboy. Once again many thanks. Ron.
