Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

TTL Multi-Flash Sync Cord SC-27

I am using the remote cord, SC-17, from the camera, D200, to an SB-800 flash unit, used as a wireless master flash to 3 more SB-800 remote units. The SC-17 is 1.5m long and I need more distance. Could the SC-27 Sync Cord be used between the SC-17 terminal and the master flash unit without any changes to the system?

I am using a nikon D200 with a sb800. The flash is firing ok on TTL and the camera is set on 'P' however I am getting a dark picture every tme. The built in flash works OK It appears the flash/camera...


This is an excellent flash, very powerful and compact and actually more flash then what was available when the D200 first cam on the market. The two will work nicely together and I think the problem is that the SB-800 can be programmed within itself. This meaning with some cameras you program the camera for the flash output with the SB-800 you can program the flash as well. It has some excellent features like Flash value lock (which I think is set to slightly underexpose from what your question is asking) it also has Flash color information and a built in Flash compensation. Possibly the compensation or value lock are set to underexposure. I'm saying this over the camera setting because you stated that the internal flash appeared to be okay, check your SB-800 settings

I want to know how to use the 952AF/Nik with the nikon d200 using multi flash units with the commander mode set to channel 1


The vivtar 952AF flash is not compatible with the D200 in commander mode. Only the Nikon SB600, SB-800, SB-900 will work with that camera wirelessly.

Flash fires but dosent show up, out if sync out of time with the camera


Wierd, what camera, settings are you using? have you ever tried using the CLS (creative lighting system)? could you have left it on "remote" or "master unit" with it turned off. Then it will send out the preflash but not fire during the exposure.

My sb 600 fires with the camera but it seems not illuminate


Definately a settings problem. The camera will only syncronize on one specific speed. Youe best bet is to use auto. For manual, you'll have to set the shutter speed at the sync speed.

Flash Sync Speed
  • up to 1/250 X-Sync Speed
  • up to 1/8000 FP High Speed Sync
  • Red-eye reduction
    Red-eye reduction with slow sync
    Rear-curtain sync
    Slow sync
    Front-curtain sync (normal) Flash Sync Modes
  • 1) i-TTL: TTL flash control by 1,005-pixel RGB sensor, built-in flash, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400: i-TTL balanced fill-flash and standard i-TTL flash
    2) AA (Auto Aperture-type) flash: Available with SB-800 used with CPU lens
    3) Non-TTL Auto: Available with Speedlights such as SB-800, 28, 27, and 22S
    4) Range-priority manual flash; available with SB-800 Flash Control

    No iTTL mode (or TTL mode) in SB 800 synced with cord to D300


    Bingo! That's an X-sync cable, only for firing the flash, syncing it withe shutter - carries out no auto features or communication with the camera.
    Don't waste your money on another cable the same. There is no TTL light measuring features with an X-sync cable.
    You can, however, get the proper 'off-the-camera' TTL syncing cable either from Nikon or a 3rd party provider. This proper TTL cable can cost a fair bit, I don't know exactly but thinking from $40-$50 to $80'odd.
    Shop around, buy from a store where you have the face-to-face enquiry and a return facility if 'they' get it wrong.

    Hi Kathy,

    Are you ready?

    1. Make sure the Nikon SC-29's Red Panel's Lock Switch is set to the Left. Pointing at Left Black Screw.
    2. Connect the Nikon SC-29's (Red Panel) to your camera's Hotshoe by pushing it as far as it goes.
    3. Turn Lock Switch to the Right (turn CW). This locks down to camera.
    4. Make sure Nikon SC-29 (other ends) AF-ILL is set to OFF.
    5. Make sure your Nikon SB-800's Lock Switch is set to the left side.
    6. Attach your Nikon SB-800 into this Hotshoe.
    7. Switch the Lock Switch on flash to the right.
    8. When you wants to AF from flash, set AF-ILL to "OFF"
    9. For the best results, set AF-ILL to "ON".

    I hope they are helpful to you as well as for any Nikon Photographers using the Nikon SC-29 Cable.

    It might be you are not making a good contact on your camera and flash .
