Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I cant seem to get the Vivatar 636 to sync with the Nikon D200 in ATTL Mode is there a trick to this?
You won't be able to use older TTL flashguns with the D200. Since the D70, all nikon cameras have used "iTTL", and earlier DSLRs (eg D100) have used "D-TTL". Neither of these are compatible with the older TTL system used on film cameras. The newer SB-400/600/800 flashguns are all ok, and Sigma and Metz both produce iTTL compatible flashguns. The new flashguns will work on old cameras but not vice versa.
I know this is annoying, but there were good technical reasons why Nikon changed the TTL standards.
If the 636 has an A mode (non TTL) this should work ok, otherwise it will only work in manual (if it has a manual mode).
