I have several SB-800's and love the iTTL but was wondering how the Quantum Trio 8QFN QTTL stacks up in comparison.

I need the ability to shoot in rapid succession during an event as contestants cross the finish line

I would love to get the impressions / comparisons from someone who uses the QTTL system


Thanks

Paul

In my opinion QTTL works just as well as iTTL, and it recycles in under a second most of the time.

The problem with the QTTL is that it doesn't have the TTL-BL mode. It has a substitute called 'Ratio Fill-in', but it doesn't work as well as the Nikon TTL-BL mode.
