I just purchased a RRS large flash bracket (B91-QR) for use with my 500mm lens.
I have the sb900 and SB 600.

I was trying to use the built in flash to trigger the flash in the bracket. I set the on camera flash to -- .
I set the SB 900 to remote.

The problem I am having is the flash will not work when mounted in the cold shoe on the flash bracket. If I take the flash off and hold in my hand it works .
I have tried with both the SB 900 and 600
Is it possible that the flashes are sitting to high for the infrared signal? Would a sync cord be my solution? Or what am I doing wrong.

Thanks
Birdie
