" D7100 and SB-800 question"


IL
          

What am I doing wrong?????

Have a D7100 and a SB-800. I have very little experience with the SB-800. At a large indoor get together a few months ago I was successful in taking many good photos with it.
Last week was asked once again to take photos and again used the SB-800. There area was well lit with fluorescent s, but flash is still needed.
When I pushed the shutter, it made the flash, flash three times, before the flash went off. I turned the AF to off on the SB-800 menu. Is there someplace on the D7100’s menu that controls this???
How can I stop the three mini-flashes before the flash goes off.
TIA,
Ben

Sounds like a red eye reduction setting.

You can reset the settings by pressing the mode and on/off buttons simultaneously for app. 2 seconds to reset all settings, including the custom settings. Hope this helps.

Yep, that's red-eye reduction. Which you probably don't need when using the SB-800 but may want to use if you are using the pop-up flash. (The pop-up flash uses the lamp on the front of the camera for red-eye reduction rather than the three-flash technique.)

While you're working on getting that turned off , do a little experimentation to see what settings you like. In particular, try both TTL and TTL-BL modes. Also try flash with the SLOW mode turned on and off to see the diference and decide what you like. That kind of playing around will pay off when you're at an event and have to figure out how to get the shots.
