Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D700 with a Speedlight SB-800. My problem is that I have somehow gotten the Zoom setting stuck on Manual. In other words the "M" is on top of the word "Zoom". Therefore the flash does not sync with the the various zoom settings. I have toggled the buttons on the SEL device; in particular the one that looks like a pine tree which usually fixes the problem and the "M" goes away. Could I have broken the button somehow? I need help. I am with our new (ninth)grandchild and am supposed to be the Photographer. Please help if you can. David McKown davidmck@whdservices.com

You should rotate the auto focus selector and set it to one of the two autofocus modes. Please refer to page 100 of the manual below. It has a picture of the same and should resolve your problem.

Shooting with a Nikon zoom such as 18-200 with a Nikon SB800 flash on a Nikon D300 body. I make an exposure of a person and the result is exceptable and then I zoom to the whole group of five people and it...


Depends on the zoom length. If you check exposure at zoom 18 mm then zoom to (lets say) 100 for the final picture the flash will zoom concentrating the flash power as well; the flash gets stronger. This is all explained in the SB-800 manual. On a zoom such as the 18-200 the more you zoom the smaller the f/stop. You are better off with a zoom that maintains its f/stop through the entire zoom range. That way when you check exposure at 18 mm lets say f/2.8 then zoom in it will maintain the same f/stop. Myself I am not a big fan of zooms especially ones when zoomed change to a smaller f/stop.

No TTL information for Sb-600


BE SURE YOUR CAMERA IS SET TO SINGLE AUTO FOCUS AND NOT CONTINOUS.
ALSO IF THE CAMERA IS A D300 OR D700 MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING CENTER FOCUS FOR THE AF ASSIST LED
