AC3 ZoneController / General Pocket Wizard Question
Feb 21, 2011

Ok this is probably a very stupid question (feel free to tell me so...). But do I need a transeiver (ie Flex) attached to my Sb600 / Sb900 in order to use the AC3 Zone Controller?

I have a Nikon D3S and want a way to control the off camera flash from the camera.

I am looking at getting the Mini for on top of my D3S and a Flex for my SB900. But then I was thinking that the SB900 would trigger the SB600 optically without the need for another Flex (as long as they were in line of site to eachother, etc). But I want to be able to adjust the flash power from the camera on the SB600 too.

Am I correct in that assumption or do I need another Flex to put on my SB600 to be able to adjust it from the D3S? And will the SB600 fire in this setup (Mini to Flex on the SB900, then optically from SB900 to SB600)?

Thanks!
