Question about Nikon Speedlight SB-800 TTL Flash

1 Answer

Zoom range 14-17mm

Hi, my problem is: my SB800 accidentally works in zoom range 14-17mm when previously the whole range was available. How can I switch it back to standard range 24-105mm? I’m using Nikon lens 18-70mm.

Thank you, Meg

Make sure the diffusion dome and the built in wide angle adaptor are off. If the diffusion dome is on, it will only work as 14mm and 17mm without the diffuser but with the wide angle panel.

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.

Sb600 doesn't fire well off the sb800


The sb600 needs to be able to see the preflashes of the sb800, so this is probably caused by one of two things.  The first thing I'd check is whether or not the light sensor on the side of the sb600 was covered, blocked, or facing away from the sb800.  I've had problems outdoors when I forgot to have the light sensor face the camera.
If the sensor was facing the camera, it is possible that the flashes didn't have a good line of sight to each other.  That normally shouldn't matter, but if there is a high ceiling and lots of people, it could be the case.  I don't know if it will help, but in any case I would recommend using a StoFen Omnibounce on the sb800 to increase the likelihood that the light finds a direction where a surface to bounce off of is found.  
Good luck.

SB800 firing but not syncing??


I had that same problem with the SB600 and the SB 800. Solutions; get a new one. After about a year of usage the sb600 started giving me that problem. It flashes but it does not sync. It still works as a remote unit, but not mounted on the camera. The SB800 just went to a coma last weekend. No sync at all, not even as remote unit, no strobe function, just a bright flash, when triggering the test button with new fresh batteries, it flashes at max power once and takes around 7 seconds to recycle. No multiple flashes at all. I had to buy a new one.
