Hello everyone,

This's my first post, though I've been following this site for the past few months.

I tried to shoot a subject in extremely low light (in almost total darkness) with N80 and SB50DX in off-camera slave mode. I shot about 7-8 frames, some in P mode and others in A mode. I set the camera on a tripod and manually focussed on the subject. And to my disappointment all the shots are underexposed, infact all the slides are completely dark. I did see the flash firing.

However, I've got good exposures when I used SB50DX on camera in the same lighting conditions. Can someone please help me know what's wrong? Thanks a bunch.
