Hi

This is the set-up:

SB-910 as master.
SB-600 as remote.

SB-910 set to ---
SB-600 set to either M or TTL (same problem either way)

I was in a subway on an overcast day. Basically the problem was the Sb-600 wasn't firing. The only way I could get it to fire reliably was pointing its light-sensor (which is on one side) directly at the SB-900. Even 2 metres away with the SB-910 pointing in roughly the right direction it wouldn't fire.

Later on in the same shoot I tried again and it worked, every time.

I'm just wondering if the problem might not have been daylight i.e. the wireless communication works better when it is dark. In the daylight it can't distinguish between daylight and the flash pulses?

Or am I way off?

Thanks
