Hello there SL users. It was suggested in the D80 forum I come over here to ask my question. I have a new Nikon D80 with which I wish to use a SunPak 522 and a Norman 400B strobe. I have a Wein Hot Shoe Safe Sync which I have been told is imperitive. So I guess my question has as much to do with how to set up the camera as to how to use the strobes.
I was told by the seller that all I had to do to use off camera/off brand stobe was to use this Wein protectorshoe on the hotshoe. But I have been through both books (I admit cursorily) and yet I cannot find any reference to this except for slave operation restricted to three units. What am I missing? These cameras will do me little good if I can't use the lights I already have. While I may have to spring for a Nikon flash to use on the bracket (the 522 is old after all) the Norman is a workhorse and blasts a lot of light suitable for outdoor fill and such. Sorry if this has been addressed but I am an old shooter brand new to dig. Thanks
Lar
