Hello all,
I have been unable to successfully set off my sb 800 flashes off camera using the phottix strato triggers. The transmitter and receivers are all correctly set and when I hit the test button on the transmitter the receivers blink red so I know they are receiving the signal but there is no flash. The flashes work fine using the d800 pop up flash when in commander mode but not ith the phottix units. I would appreciate any words of wisdom
Thanks. Pierre

Hi Pierre,

Welcome to Nikonians!
What mode do you have the remote SB-800 set in?
Hint: The remote SB-800 Speedlight in the Phottix receiver will not work if it is set in remote mode. It must be set in non-TTL Auto mode or Manual mode.
Also make sure that the Transmitter and Receiver are set to the same channel and group.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thank you very much. You diagnosed the problem perfectly. Took the sb 800 s off of remote and into manual mode and the trigger works perfectly. Thanks for taking the time to help out a fellow Nikonian. Pierre
