Greetings Nikonians!
Apologies for the last minute question, but this came up rather quickly. Tomorrow night, I'll be shooting a wedding with a D5200, Nikkor 16-85, and the Nikon SB-400 (with Stofen Omnibounce). Assuming hand-held in a not very well-lit room, I was wondering if the following camera settings would be optimal for sharp, well-exposed images (with subjects approx. 6-20 ft. distant):
ISO 200
Manual mode
1/200 @ f/8
SB-400 (straight-not angled) with Omnibounce
WB = Auto
AF Area Mode = Single Point
AF-S Mode
Flash Control for built-in flash = TTL?
Picture Control = Standard
Active-D Lighting = Auto
ISO Sensitivity = 400 (ON)
Maximum Sensitivity = 1600

(I'm assuming that the SB-400 will be much superior to the built-in flash, either in bounce mode when possible, or with the Omnibounce Diffuser on.)
Any advice sent to steve@totalqualityphoto.com within the next day would be greatly appreciated! (I obviously didn't have time to do exposure tests, which is why I am seeking advice from those who have done so with this equipment.)
Thanks again!
Steve
