Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-22S TTL Flash

1 Answer

Use of Nikon SB22s as slave flash.

Can I fire an SB22s flashgun mounted on a standard remote hotshoe with optical (flash) sensor? The SB22s appears to be designed to work with Nikon cameras with TTL monitoring and I wondered if the manual setting might allow use as a slave.

In the manual setting the SB-22s is just a standard flash and should work with a standard hotshoe.

How do I stop down my flash on my olympus E410 so its not so bright when I use it.


I just saw a picture of your Olympus and it is clear it isn't fitted with a flash but a variety of flashguns can be fitted to the hotshoe bracket.
A standard flashgun has a fixed flash and must be diffused or bounced if it needs to be toned down.
There are programmable flashes available but these are more suitable for manual cameras.
A model-specific computerised flashgun can communicate through multiple contacts of the hot shoe with a computerised camera and should provide the flash duration/intensity to suit the camera's settings.

Maybe your flash isn't fully compatible with the camera.

WHEN USING THE FLASH INDOORS, I GET A CRESCENT SHADOW IN THE FOREFRONT OF EVERY PICTURE?


If it is at the lower portion of the print, it is caused by the lens projecting within the beam from the flash. You have given no information about the make and model of the camera, but I suspect you are using the on-board flash at a fairly close distance. If it is possible to mount a flashgun on the hotshoe of your camera, this will give better results (and also enable you to use bounce flash if you wish.
If this is not possible, then an off-camera flash, fired by a sensor, will serve the same purpose.
Alternatively, take the photos from further away.

Faulty Flashgun


It's hard to diagnose a problem without knowing the details...what camera, what kind of mount -- off camera, on camera, remote fire? One thing I have found is that accessories that aren't the same brand as the camera won't function fully in TTL. They don't interact with the camera's processor the way the one made for the camera will, in most instances. I have found a few exceptions. Cameras are moving forward so fast the accessory manufacturers get left behind.

Your sunpak works great as a slave triggered by a main flash in -- I believe that model has a slave function. Great fun hand held or with a tripod. Best of luck!

Use of Canon 60D's wireless function to control power on Canon 430EXII, being operated manually.


Your flash will fire optically. This is wireless but not radio.On the flashgun window move through the options until you see all of these in the window :- Flashing M, MZoom (24mm)
(the power output eg) 1/4
Flashgun icon CH1 Slave (blank)
The front panel should show a flashing red light. This means it is ready to receive the light signal from your onboard flash. From the camera menu select the in built flash control.
Set it to - Built-in flash - CustWireless
Flash mode - Manual flash
Wireless func - (single flashgun icon)
Channel- 1 ch
firing group - (flashgun icon)All
(flashgun icon) flashoutput - 1/64

selecting 1/64 should be sufficient to trigger the flash gun but not light the scene.

Manually pop up the onboard flash

In the view finder you'll see a number of green bars when half pressing the shutter and wait for them to go down to one which mean the camera and flashgun are communicating, fully press to take the shot and the flash (off camera) should fire.

Will the PZ-1 DSZ fire remotely as a slave unit?


Go to photo.net for a more comprehensive answer on this unit. But you should have a "slave" setting. May be called an optical trigger. You will need another flash to set it off though.

Synchronizing two sb-800s with a nikon d300


You knoq the SB-800 has a slave mode called SU-4 in the menu. It activates remote flash. When your on camera flash fires so will the slave flash. The slave flash will need to be able to "see" the light from the on-camrea flash to work.

To access the SU-4 remote mode hold the "SEL" button in for a few seconds until the menu appears. Scroll down to the SU-4 setting and turn it on.

When using this method set the flash to manual and set the power as needed.

Regards.

The M is for flashbulbs, the X is for electronic flash. Sorry, but it won't sync with flash powder :-)

What flash will fit the V3800N SLR film camera?


Pretty much any flashgun with a standard hotshoe. The 3800N is extremely basic and does not take advantage of any dedicated flash functions, so you'll find loads of cheap or even free basic manual or auto-exposure flashguns on auction websites and also on FreeCycle.

I'd suggest a basic manual flashgun as you then fully control it. Automatic flashguns try to second guess what it is you're photographing so can often over-expose the subject. You also learn more using a basic manual flash which is probably the only reason to buy a 3800N in the first place.

Using SB 800 flash Master with 2 SB 600 as slave


Hi Frank, I use the same combination of the exact three flashguns you have. Works beautifully. I mount the sb-800 on my camera and set it to Master Mode (press and hold the center button till the menu comes up, select the master). Set the other two sb600s as slave. Please make sure the channel is set the same in all three flashes... when positioning the slave flashes, make sure that sensors on the remote will recieve the light from the main flash. For maximum coverage I use the sb-800 with a diffuser in bounce mode. You will be amazed at the quality of interior phots you can get with a 3 flash combo.
