D700 Program P* and lens aperture Blocked with SB ?!?!
Mar 2, 2011

Dear all,

can you please CHECK what happen at the P program when you mount an SB Unit on a D700, D3, D300 camera???

I have done this test: D700, Iso200, 50mm 1.8... When I mount the flash, the MINIMUM APERTURE GOES TO f/5.6 and the program P is blocked, no way to move to P* and have wider aperture....

If you change the ISO, the minimum aperture is again smaller...

What is the Logic behind this???

If I have low light and I want to use the flash I would like to benefit wider aperture...

Please check!!
