Hello All,

I just purchased a SB400 to learn more about flash photography. I read several very interesting blogs on Nikon CLS.


The manual says the SB400 works in iTTL mode but I infer from the blog that in fact there are two modes, TTL and TTL-BL. As the SB400 does not have a mode switch, my question is:

Does the SB400 work in TTL mode if I put the camera (D90)in Manual + spot metering and in TTL/BL in the other modes with matrix metering, such as, Aperture/Shutter priority?

This appears to be a fascinating yet complex topic to grasp.
