"SB28 + slaveflash"



          

Hi
maybe stupid question... how to setup the SB28 with a slaveflash? I cant use 3d metering with the flash (or can I?) so should I put in TTL mode and then use it as normal.. will this produce good exposure? I thought that I put a question here before I proceed with try & error method
Best regards
Johan

If I am understanding correctly, if you want to use ther SB-28 as a slave, triggered by a built-in unit, you could use 3D metering and TTL if with a SU-4.
If not, then check the ISO speed (it is set automatically to 100, adjust accordingly if needed).
Now, if you want to use the SB-28 mounted on your camera and another flash as a slave, then you have to decide which one you want to be your dominant light source, then adjust the settings on the slave flash accordingly.
Sorry I have to run elsewhere right now; if insufficiently clear ... I'll be back

I am trying to use my F100 with 2 SB-26 flash units. The slave is mounted on a SU-4. The slave flash is firing however, I can't get the light right to properly illuminate the subjects hair from the top. Any suggestions?

Check the angle of your hairlight (slave flash). Make sure it is at an angle so that your camera will pick it up. Also make sure both your SU-4 and your slave SB-26 are not in slave mode at the same time. I'm sure that could foul things up.
