Maybe you can help.....
Jan 26, 2012

Let me first start off by telling you what I have:
Nikon D700
SB600, SB900, AB800 and Radio Popper JrX triggers.

I am trying to fire all three and am having some trouble. My set up that I am trying to go for is something like this: sb600 gridded on the background, sb900 for hair/rim lighting and ab800 in beauty dish as my main light.

1. I tried CLS but it does not seem to work. After doing some research it seems my preflash on commander mode is firing the AB before the SB's. As a result, I am getting the other two lights to work and no main light (although it looks to the eye that it is working but I guess just a split second too soon).

2. I tried using the radiopopper with the sync cube on the sb600 to fire the others optically, but since it is gridded the others don't 'see' it and don't fire.

What am I overlooking or how can I get this to work? Thank you in advance.
