Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
The ready light does not come on when it's powered up for another flash burst? But it will flash with a photo. I can't understand the consistency of this flash. Sometimes it takes a very long time before it will flash, other times it will flash when i take a picture only 1 second after the last time. Generally I usually have problems when the bride and groom come down the aisle in the church, I get one flash when they're at the alter, and then no more until when they're almost walking out of the door.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

what about brand new, fully charged, 2700 mahas? why wouldn't a sb-800 turn on the ready light in this situation? i'm having this problem...

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.
