Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash
I am using the SB-800 with my D200. I was using it off camera and now can't get back to TTL. When I push the mode button nothing happens.
On your D200:
Move up or down to: PENCIL menu.
Move right and down to: e Bracketing/Flash
Move right and down to: e3: Built-in Flash
Move right and up to: TTL
Move right to set it to TTL.
Sorry again for the complexity; Nikon never asked for my help. I don't reset my D200 this way. I use one of the Custom Setting Banks for remote flash, and simply select my normal Custom Setting when I want to return to normal TTL flash.
On your SB-800:
Press ZOOM and "-" together to enter the CSM settings. That's why you see a gray CSM marking between those two buttons.
Press either the + or - buttons until you see an icon that looks like a wiggly Z shaped arrow. When you see the wiggly arrow, press MODE until it says OFF.
Press ZOOM and "-" together to get out of the CSM mode. Even easier, just tap the power button to get back to normal operation. It won't turn off if you hit it while in the CSM settings.
You can cheat and just reset the SB-800 back to its defaults by holding the mode button and then pressing the ON/OFF button simultaneously for a couple of seconds. You'll see the display blink and it's back to normal. This is also marked RESET in gray on the SB-800. Of course this will lose any other custom settings you may have changed outside of this discussion.
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..
