I have a D200 on which I would like to use my SB 800 and SB 600 . As I read various post I see refrences such as manual 1/32-1/3 or manual 1/32-2/3 .

I take the first to mean 1/32 power . Are the ???/3 designations EV values ?

If so I think the D200 has them seperatly for the camera and/or the flash . They seem to be in the order of 0.3- 0.7- 1.0 .

I suppose I'm asking which EV Is being adjusted if in fact that is what is being reffered to .
