"RE: External Flash with D800's Double Dash Mode"
I just ran a test with my new SB-910 and it worked.The following was a simple test to determine if there are any issues with my D800E set in CLS Commander Mode to trigger an SB-910 in Remote Mode .... SB-910 Setup . Turned flash on as REMOTE . Set Group to 'A' . Set Channel to '1' Positioned the flash about 8 feet away on my right so the light sensor window for wireless remote flash was visible to me and the D800E.D800E . Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Built-in flash (mode) set as '--' . Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Group A (mode) set as TTL . Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Group B (mode) set as TTL . Menu item e3, Commander Mode, Channel set as 1 . Set the camera to Manual Mode . Popped the on-camera flash. . Composed, focused, metered the exposure. . Positioned the D800E off my face so I could view the flash triggering. . Took the shot.Results .....I viewed the SB-910 & D800E both flash.I'm assuming this simple test is adequate and I can confirm that using my SB-910 as a wireless remote slave functions properly.If anyone knows of some other scenario I should setup and test please let me know.
