    Hi,

    checked both the fit and the pins- all in perfect order... the strange thing is that in TTL mode the camera would not fire up at all (blinking Flash sign on the display and in the viewfinder). It works in manual mode. Also in options no no Auto zoom option - can only select manual zoom.

    :-?

Hello,

Metz says yes: Metz

Certainly Nikon will say no. I would double check the fit of the shoe on the camera. The pins on the flash should be springy to the touch.

Not sure what i need to use the mecablitz 60 ct-4 w/ my Nikon d-100


I just bought a D100 (as a backup to a D200 - nothing like being up to date with current technology! B^)). As I understand it, there is no integral flash sync connector on them. You need to get an AS-15 accessory shoe adaptor which goes on the hot shoe, and has a pc sync connector (like the D200 has on the side of the main body). Then you use a standard Metz sync cable to attach to that. The Metz 60 CT flashes have a low voltage trigger circuit and so should be safe with any camera.

Running in TTL mode with Nikon D200, flash EF-500 DG ST NAd, doesn't work. In manual mode everything runs well.


this flash is not compatible with the d200. i had one and sent it back to sigma, they upgraded the software in the flash for free. now it works in all modes, it needs to be iTTL to work on the nikon d200 the NAd version is not iTTL.

I am using a nikon D200 with a sb800. The flash is firing ok on TTL and the camera is set on 'P' however I am getting a dark picture every tme. The built in flash works OK It appears the flash/camera...


This is an excellent flash, very powerful and compact and actually more flash then what was available when the D200 first cam on the market. The two will work nicely together and I think the problem is that the SB-800 can be programmed within itself. This meaning with some cameras you program the camera for the flash output with the SB-800 you can program the flash as well. It has some excellent features like Flash value lock (which I think is set to slightly underexpose from what your question is asking) it also has Flash color information and a built in Flash compensation. Possibly the compensation or value lock are set to underexposure. I'm saying this over the camera setting because you stated that the internal flash appeared to be okay, check your SB-800 settings

Sigma ef-500 dg st won't work with my d300 or 200 in ttl mode


This Sigma flash is not Ittl compatible. The D300 and D200 Nikon must have Ittl compatible flash to operate in any of the Automatic modes. It is a great flash but will not work on those two cameras.

I've had 2 Metz 54MZ4 flash units with my Canon 1Ds and 10D cameras and none of them work in TTL mode. They give full output power in TTL. What is problem?


If your Metz is for Nikon it will not work in TTL on Cannons. Metz makes different flashes for Nikon and Cannon. I have a Metz 54 that I use with my Nikon D200 and it works as well or better than the NIkon SB800 in TTL.

Wont work


According to the Canon feature chart I have here; the 540EZ Speedlite flash is not compatible with the Digital Rebel XT in ETTL mode. The 480EG is also not compatible. The 550 or any of the others in that product line are would work. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
