Standard TTL can be used with any type of Nikkor lens. In standard D-TTL flash, automatic flash output level compensation is not available. This means that even though the main subject is correctly exposed, the background may not be. Standard D-TTL flash is useful when you want to highlight the main subject or perform flash exposure compensation. D-3D Multi sensor balanced fill-flash together with D-multi sensor balanced fill flash is called Automatic Balanced Fill flash with TTL multi sensor. What this does is it performs a balanced metering that uses multi pattern photometering information to provide a balance between the main subject and the background light. The difference between the D-3D multi sensor and the D-multi sensor is that one is used with D or G type lenses (D-3D) and the other is used with non-D or G type lenses.

How to get vivitar pro 548 series 1 to work on nikon d90


The TTL contacts on the Nikon are different to the Vivitar.
You can put a remote flash trigger in the Vivitar and use the Nikon's built-in flash to trigger the Vivitar flash using the remote flash trigger.

What setting should the camera be on for an


That depends on the flash. If it's CLS-compatible (Nikon SB-400, SB-600, SB-800, and SB-900) you can use it in any exposure mode (except flash off, of course). The easiest flash mode is Auto-TTL, though some of the other modes will give you better control under certain situations.

If it's not CLS-compatible, then you'll have to take it off Auto-TTL. If the flash has a sensor, you can let the flash control itself (assuming it's at the same distance from the subject as the camera). Otherwise you'll have to go manual.

The flashgun doesn't pop up when it should. It remains jammed.


Ok

Its not clear how you are using the camera.
Check the settings on the left. Some settings (Landscape for example will not allow the use of flash)
Set the camera to P,S,A OR M and it will. In Auto it will pop up if it needs it. It It still won't work Look at the menu settings for Flash Mode two settings 1) TTL and the other Manual. I have my D50 set to TTL using the built in flash and manual when using an external flash mounted in the shoe.

Hope this helps

D40 compatability with Sunpak auto 144D flash


the voltage on the flash hot shoe contacts (center pin and rail connector) can be as high as 140V DC and this voltage is backfed into the camera through its hotshoe connector. There are adapters that can be bought that isolate this voltage that go between the flash and the camera, but different camera makers have different ratings for the flash voltage. My Vivitar 220 has 122 volts across the contacts from 4 AA batteries! Canon recommends nothing over 6v but Fuji says 60v and others dont say anything. SLR's used a mechanical trigger, modern digi cams use an electronic trigger. Also Digcams use electronic metering for exposure so they dont take into consideration the addition of another flash unless they do a preflash, TTL metering and the flash unit is capable of recharging in about 1/10th second. YOu may have to do some post processing or set the camera on manual to adjust the exposure.

Error


Here is where you can download a copy of the manual from:
Fuji S2 Manual
This is what the manual says about your error:
If FEE in in top display: "CPU Nikkor lens other than G-type
is not set to its minimum aperture. Fix: Set lens to minimum aperture."
If FEE is in viewfinder: "Attached flash is not set at TTL
Auto Flash in “P” mode. Fix: Set the external flash mode to TTL, or set the camera’s exposure mode to “S”, “A” or “M”."
Are you using a flash that attaches to the camera?
If not, then the problem is with the aperture setting. It looks like you would have to set the camera dial to M, for Manual, and use the ring on the lens to set the aperture.
The low battery symbol looks like a battery, all black when charged, half-black as power goes down.
This looks like a nice camera, hope I was able to help.

Shooting with External Flash


Without more information, it sounds like the flash may be set to a manual mode. Try setting the flash to an auto mode. The display should indicate something to the effect of "E-TTL" or maybe just "TTL". The reason your images are blurry, would be due to a slow shutter speed being used on the camera. If your flash is not set to trigger automatically, then the camera will use the slowest shutter speed to acheive the proper exposure of the image. My assumption would be that if you were to take two images back-to-back with the speedlight set to your current setting, one with the speedlight the other with the pop-up flash, the latter would not be blurry. Hope this helps.

Flash on ist DL


Looks like its true... Another major disadvantage. Removing TTL means removing one more hardware piece - TTL sensor. Pentax removed almost every nice feature, which needs some aditional or more expensive hardware: no TTL flash, less AF points, pentamirror... Seems like I bought Ds right in time.
