It's working fine for me

For the picture below I did the following


  • 2 SB-800s
    • Set to remote Chl 2
    • Zoom at 50mm with LumiQuest Pro modifiers and same distance, height and angles relative to subject
    • Left flash on Group A, right flash on Group B

  • D800e in commander mode
    • Built in Mode --
    • Group A Mode TTL. Comp 0
    • Group B Mode TTL, Comp -1.3
    • Channel 2

  • 28-70/2.8 lens at 70mm f/5.6


  • I think the picture looks correct for these settings. The shadow on the right of my subject is darker than the shadow on the left. This tells me that the flash on the left was a higher setting than the one on the right.
