Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
I have been shooting fashion shows these last few weeks and after I get about 60-70 exposures from the flash I get a -3EV message popping up on the LCD of the SB-800. Then I get no flashes every two or three shoots and sometimes it just dies. It's not a battery issue since I have put fresh batteries in when this happens and the problem sometimes persists. Is this an overheating issue? How many flashes does it usually take to overheat this flash?
IN THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL USING THE FLASH IN SHOOTING FAST CAUSES IT TO HEAT UP .
TRY USING THE FLASH IN MANUAL AND CUT THE RATIO POWER AND USE AS A FILL AND NOT A MAIN .
YOU COULD ALSO USE TWO NIKON SB800 FLASHES IN ITTL AND WITH TWO THE FLASH IS USING HAVE THE OUTPUT AND RECYCLE TIME IS INCREASED .
DAVE BLACK A WELL KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHER DOES THIS IN HIS SHOOTING .
