"Pixel king and SB910"

Hi. Has anybody had any experience using these remote triggers? I have purchased a set and they work well but aim having some trouble getting enough light from my 2 SB910's. they are set at each end of a studio about 40 feet apart, aimed atthehypothetical centre of the hall about 20 feet to the centre.

I am not getting enough light. I have set them it TTL BL and have my camera setto f5.6, shutter set to 1/100 sec.

I am using a D800 with 105 lens and a D700 with 28 to 300 zoom. Focus is not the issue, just exposure.

Not sure if I have provided enough information but any ideas?

Thanks

Kim

Hi Kim,

Try using TTL mode.
TTL BL is for fill flash in bright ambient light.

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks Marty. I didn't think of thar. Should I also try A or AA?

I'll let you know how I get on but your comment makes sense. I thought that the flashes were not powerful enough.

Cheers

Hi Kim,

If the Ready Lite flashes for 3 sec. after the flash is fired, the Speedlight fired at full power indicating that there may be insufficient power.

In the studio, I usually use Manual flash mode for consistancy and repeatability.

Best Regards,
Marty
