Hi everyone,

I'm interested in buying an SU-4, so that I can use two speedlights for portrait taking. My dad already has an SB-28 I can use...however, I read that the SU-4 does not work with speedlights that have the "monitor pre-flashing," and that if I turn OFF the pre-flash on the SB-28 (as the master), I would no longer be getting matrix fill flash. The article I read then suggested that one should use the SB-28 as the slave flash...however, it did not mention what speedlight should be used as the master if one wanted to keep the matrix fill flash. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thank you!
